Last use of the bolzano s.i. blade which has performed superbly with each outing. These blades are smooth sharp & very forgiving. Every razor i've paired them up with has been a excellent match...The longevity of them is astoundingly good i know i could quite easily get another two shaves from this blade but i will retire it due to me having a boat load of other blades to contend with.

I have carried on with the hefty Parker 89r to finish my shaving week off, another razor i haven't added to my razor rotation for a while. throughout the week my humble parker have provided me with socially acceptable error free shaves.
Today was no exception.

This morning myself and other family members are going to pay our respects to my aunt Joan (86 years of age) who finally past away last week, i say 'finally' because she lived in a care home in a state of extreme dementia for four years which was horrible for her even though she wasn't aware of it, 'a blessing in disguise for her i suppose' and equal for her children family, friends and dedicated supportive care home staff.

Alzheimer's disease/Dementia is the most undignified disease for anybody..'I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy'...Anyway at last she is at rest, away from this crazy covid pandemic madness world we are living in at the moment.

Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of L'OREAL~ Soothing Birch Sap Post Shave Balm.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Take care everyone. Yours. B
