A very good shave. :biggrin:
It would have been excellent if it wasn't for the slightly off-putting smell of the lather. (More on that HERE if you're interested.)

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Another wonderful soap! Lovely scented with a rich creamy and slick lather...love it!
This blade is not showing any signs of slowing down. Paired with the excellent vintage razor, I had a very enjoyable, easy, smooth, and efficient 3pass shave without any issues for a surprisingly bbs finish. The matching aftershave was just great!!
