A very rare outing with a DE Razor today as I seem to be predominately an SE/Injector user these days. I chose the dependable Vitos as a soap , and I must say it provided a great Lather to work with and the Shave was really smooth.
I was rather pleased that I chose to use the Progress today, as I enjoyed using it and was rewarded with an extremely
close finish nigh on a Face Stroker.

Barrister & Mann Seville today. 20 seconds to load the Elite Razor/ WSP Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Gillette “Spoiler” SS still in the Gillette Fat Boy. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Bentley Intense EdT.
