Ok gents it has been a busy weekend for me but that hasn't stopped me from sneaking in my shaves. I am on brush #4 now. I started off with the Maggard Razors Black & White 22mm. This being my first go with synthetics the first thing I noticed was how much water they hold. I had to figure that out and adjust my technique for whipping up a good lather but I think I finally got there. It was a good shave overall. I think the brush was a little too soft for my liking. Here is a pic of the lineup. Merkur 34 the cream was called caffeinated shaving cream from Target. More to come gents!
