SOTD "FREE WEEK" September 7th - September 13th, 2020

First time shaving with both a GSB and a Merkur Progress today. The Silver Blue is a great blade for sure, a hard competitor for a new favorite against the Nacet. I set the Progress to 5 and let it ride. Heavy and fairly aggressive shave was enjoyable, DFS. A Veg finish was the right choice.

Razor: Merkur Progress 510 [5]
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (1)
Brush: Crabtree and Evelyn Pure Badger
Soap: CBL Master Barber SIR Irish
Splash: Pinaud Lilac Vegetal
Balm: DC Ice Cold

G’day @OpusX quick question is the new GSB pack shows two or four wax dots on the blade?? Would be nice to see a photo of the new GSB blade to see what’s been updated.

Thank you


Just making sure the new GSB is not showing four pain in the butt wax dots very close to the edge of the blade below

Thanks for the clarification. No, the blades I have do not have 4 dots as depicted in your photograph. They have two dots, on the center line of the blade.

Una Matador muy elegante en su nueva versión Slant ,algo mas agresiva que su hermana de peine cerrado.

El jabón todo un lujo aromático que junto al after te deja impregnado todo el día.
