Sunday Schick shave, May 9th 2021

Razor: Pal injecto-matic injector-MFG 1950's, milder mid range, Very well designed IMO, they spent over 1 million dollars to tool up to develop this razor in the 1950's so how many millions today?
Blade: Personna SS PTFE (10) excellent blade, Very sharp, great longevity and smooths out nicely.
Soap: Razorock The Dead Sea, I enjoy the scent and excellent lather qualities.
Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26 mm brown whiskers, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice scrub + great lather painter.
Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Results: CCS,DFS,bBS + no irritation + no weepers = :a17: excellent shave with my Pal injecto-matic with a Personna injector blade.
