Greetings,

Early morning shave,

last outing of the Astra Superior Stainless which has been consistently Superb with every shave throughout the week...I feel as though i could easily get another 2-3 shaves from this blade, but I'll put it into retirement as i have a vast amount of other DE blades to contend with.

The FaTip Grande/Astra SS combo was such a wonderful match....Very smooth and efficient...Two passes left my face feeling smooth, but i carried on with the third & pick ups pass for the sheer pleasure, and to use up the wonderful slick lather the Razorock "WTP? !"soap provided me.

A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Osmanli ~ Lemon Eau De Cologne.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Razor Fatip OC Slant
Blade Czech Astra Superior Stainless 4th
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Hyaluronic + Cella Milano
The soap was ok...enough mechanics to complete the shave. Feels slightly burning though...
Shave with razor paired with the blade was smooth and comfortable for 3passes without any issues for a bbs finish.
