1st outing with the chiseled face. Supplied is a tuck of gsb blades so thought try one.

Lather-bowl lathered using Marco method.

This razor is extremely capable of removing facial growth without any discomfort. So much so I opened up 3 or 4 weepers without even trying. Mabey it was my eagerness. Smooth? Yes. I think this beast does well using an angle closer to the cap. No blade overhang. Light and nimble. Great grip. It sings similar to a muhle rocca when shaving.

Think a different blade for next try.

Love it yes. Would say its not a beginner razor.

Second use of the Big Ben blade was much worse than the first time. Lots of tugging but surprisingly no irritation or weepers. It was the only one I had, courtesy of @dmshaver, but I don't see myself using one again.

A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

It's been a while since i last used The G F. Trumper Violet shaving cream and forgot how much i really like it's unique scent only a small amount is needed to create a excellent lather for the full shave leaving a superb post shave feel.

The Treet Black Carbon paired together well with my 1940's vintage tech making a smooth efficient duo.

A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups close shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel on it's maiden outing...An excellent post shave application.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen. 😎
