Woke up to a very cool, sunny 28 degree morning here in the western Philadelphia suburbs. My Feather DX mug focus continues as do my decisions regarding my safety razor collection. My Tradere review led to the sale of that razor, currently wending its way to California. In that same spirit, I've halved my AC safety razor collection from 4 to 2. My SS Hawk V3 and my green aluminum Hawk V2 are on their way south along with a new magazine of Feather AC Supers.

Next on the block for review this morning was my SS Supply V2. Even before I began this morning’s shave, I pretty much knew it was staying. It's just a magnificent shaver. This morning I loaded a fresh Schick Twinjector blade, and had at my noggin. One ATG pass effectively sheared my stubble right down to the skin line. The shave with the Twinjector reminded me of my Shake Sharp dome shaves with stacked DE blades. All that I really needed to do was some selective buffing after that first pass, but I enjoy my shaves too much! So I lathered up for a wholly unnecessary second pass which ended another great shave leaving me refreshed, clean and velveteen smooth!
