This Aristocrat is a mild razor and not very efficient. I received a good shave in 2 passes. I didn't shave over the weekend so I had 3 days beard growth. The first pass WTG was smooth with no blade feel, and not very efficient and it left me with some stragglers, <DFS. The second pass, XTG and again was a very smooth pass with absolutely no blade feel and and finished BBS. The MWF lather was very good on both passes. I got a 2 pass, nick and weeper free shave. The alum was silent, even on my neck area which is unusual. I finished off with the Clubman Whiskey Woods, a scent I really like.
Overall, a really good shave. Going with some US made OC razors this week.
New week and a new razor to try! I really haven’t been excited for a new razor in quite a bit but the Supply V2 really caught my eye and as I have no other Schick type SE I figured why not?! So today I loaded a new Schick blade into this polished beauty and gave it a go.
Today’s soap Henri et Victoria Cognac and Cuban Cigars. So good a scent and an amazing performing soap. Really enjoyed using this today and honestly really liking the tobacco and leather scents lately.
So I got through a very easy two pass shave with the “classic” or two dot plate. Close and comfortable with zero nicks or irritation. The angle took a little to get used to but no issues. I have the mild (one) and aggressive (three dot) plate which I will try next. I figure this week will be dedicated to the Supply V2!

The Pearl SBF11 indian made razor,paired up with the Parker P.P. blade superbly resulting in a wonderfully smooth 3 pass + pick ups near bbs shave with no errors to report.A superb indian made shaving product duo.
The proraso sensitive soap is a great soap/crope which provides a slick protective lather, my only gripe with it is, it leaves a white residue on the razor,in-between rinsing which doesn't affect the soap or the razor's performance granted, but i have to give the razor a thorough rinse and clean with a dry cloth,when i use the proraso sensitive, if not the white residue stays on the razor,which i have to clean before use it doesn't help living in a hard water area, which contibutes to the residue film too i suppose...All said though, it's still a fantastic great value for money shaving soap, which i recommend, and will continue to use in future shaves.
Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of The Real Shaving Co. ~ SPF15 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser.
My face is feeling super smooth & smelling devine.

Would have been a wonderful shave, but I could only use one hand due to stabbing myself with a sharp knife...28C definitely warrants some Lime soap!
