Sunday Schick Shave, Mar14th 2021

Razor: Schick i2 type with the hydro magic- MFG 1974-57, excellent razor, <midrange, easy to clean & easy to roam my face with the short handle. One of their better models IMO.
Blade: Personna SS PTFE (7) Excellent blade, very sharp, smooths out nicely after a few shaves, excellent longevity for a razor that gets used seldom because of large razor rotation. The razor blade stays in the razor for weeks and does not deteriorate it seems.
Soap: Proraso red sandal wood- mild scent with great lather qualities, good post shave feel.
Brush: Yaqi red Zebra handle 26 mm :001_wub: excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrub + great lather painter.
Pre shave: Shower and hand washed my face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Proraso red with witch hazel + Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers= :a17:Excellent shave with my Schick i2 injector with a Personna blade.

>> The mysterious KAI blades <<

Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: Semogue Owners Club C5 Boar
Soap: Extro Cosmesi ~ Aranchia Italiana
Razor: Razorock German 37 Slant
Blade: KAI (14)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Extro Cosmesi ~ Aranchia Italiana AS

The KAI attached to RR's German 37 literally melted down my stubble with incredible ease. It's a stunning razor (which often gets overlooked).

3 passes without any significant blade feel made my face just feeling silky smooth.

Enjoy your Sunday, Gents!

Great razor. Love mine with a bulldog handle. Only tried it with Voskhod and Personnas, but performed great.

I made it. We just sold our house and have been moving all day. Spoke with my Grandma today aswell and I think I will do a shave in honor of my grandfather tonight and use his razor. What a great finish to a wonderful day. When one chapter closes another begins.
Have a goodnight all.
