A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

A very in-expensive eclectic shave set up where everything paired together wonderfully.

The RK Stainless felt super smooth & efficient on it's second outing....I may have mentioned before i find that some DE blades especially stainless & teflon coated ones start showing their true potential after a few shaves... This seems to be the case with the RK Stainless.

A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups comfortable shave with no errors to report....Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine. ;)

Stay Safe, and enjoy your Sunday Ladies & Gentlemen. 😎

Notes to today’s shave:

My sensei always says in sports you either win or you learn something. And so, an educational shave today!

It started out smooth and comfortable, but after the initial strokes I found myself having a hard time finding the right angle with this razor and blade.

More details on this shave can be found here.

Tomorrow is another shave. The R41 is up, but maybe I should give my skin a break.
