8.5/10 DFS, face feels great, but I think the blade is getting long in the tooth and needs to be binned.

I've been using my new Game Changer daily to see how the .68-P version does as a daily shaver, and with different blades. Today I used a Voskhod blade, which is one of my recent favorites because of it's smoothness and efficiency, and it's ability to use daily without irritation.
Today both the razor and blade worked very well together, and I had a very nice shave. For me the Game Changer .68 is working beautifully as a daily driver, and also very nice with a few days growth paired with a Feather blade. For more than four days I would use my Rockwell 6S, which is also a favorite of mine.

I also used the C.O. Bigelo shaving cream which I like very much. This shaving cream is made for C.O. Bigelo by Proraso.
C.O. Bigelo is the oldest compounding pharmacy / apothecary in America, and has been around since 1838 in NYC.

The brush I used is an Omega 48 boar hair brush, and is now the only and last boar hair brush I use since switching to synthetic brushes. However, I do like using the Omega boar brush occasionally, and this one is awesome. I always like to bowl lather with this brush to avoid brush burn, and the Timeless lathering bowl I used is in my opinion the best $12 investment I've made as far as lather bowls are concerned.

For my post shave I just used some Old Spice after shave. I really like this after shave because it smells nice of course, and doesn't irritate my face like some others.

So thanks for reading my post and have a wonderful day and shaves.
