I think the guard on this razor was bent under at some point. There is virtually no guarding at all. By far the most blade exposure of any of my razors. So I finished with the Twig so as to protect my face.

Hello friends,

After an enforced absence due to a minor domestic accident (I fell from a folding ladder) where I injured my chin, my face swelled up and I was unable to shave; today I decided to kill the longing for a deep shave and chose one of the best and most efficient razor/blade combinations available: R41 and Feather (3). How wonderful!

I rarely use a pre-shave, but I decided to be prudent, I resorted to the only one I have: Proraso White. Cella and Floïd Genuine joined the group and provided me with a splendid BBS, without any bruises or cuts. But with a goatee as a gift.

I always listen to jazz when I shave, but I have this strange habit of listening to bolero when I recover from an illness, ever since many years ago I had heart surgery with a mitral valve prosthesis and when I entered the operating room, the sound system Luis Miguel sang Perfidia. Today for me, he sang La Barca. Well friends, nobody is perfect...

Rating: 10

Have a nice weekend and great shaves.

A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

t's been a while since I've last added the Supermax classic shave cream to my shave set ups, and forgot how good this inexpensive shave cream performs, it's slick protective and doesn't dry out on my face and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.

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

A close comfortable 2 pass +pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Cien Sensitive ASB.

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

Keep safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen. :cool:
