An enjoyable shave but now I know for sure that my Derby's will only be used for 4 days. The 5th shave was pulling a bit. I then switched over to a new Sharp blade but the pulling remained. I will try the same blade tomorrow and if necessary another one, but I'm not really experiencing the smoothness the other shavers are experiencing. I'll report again tomorrow.
It's been a long learning curve- all delightfull of course.
But this Morning's shave was surprise - when I rubbed on the Baxters ASB- a smooth face- everywhere - under the chin and along the jaw..I couldn't believe it.
Merkur Progress - finally figured out the settings.(crank it all the way then back off) with a Derby blade.
Coral skin food - before ech pass of the lather.
Mr.Taylors shave cream sampler from Scotto- great lather.
Silvertip Badger brush - travel type (I was at the gym)
QED DaVinci water.
Baxters ASB and
