Not quite as good as yesterday - I'm hoping that it was using the blade an extra time than I normally do. Still fantastically smooth but very slight irritation with the alum block
 
Terrific shave this morning, after a couple days of traveling for work and using a cart razor.

Hot shower, then....

Maybe the best shave I have had in a month. Almost no burn on the splash, worked very hard for negative pressure and enjoy being back on this blade and will make sure to swap it at 3 shaves. Seems to be my best shaves.

Shave 20190911:

Prep: Wash face with Noxzema
Pre-shave: Glycerin + Sesame Body Oil
Brush: Frank Shaving Synthetic
Soap: Proraso White
Razor: RR SLOC
Blade: Personna Med Prep (5)
Post-shave: Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe
After Shave Balm: Proraso White AS + a few drops of Sesame Bath Oil
Cologne: Original Stetson

9+/10

The RazoRock SLOC is a delightful razor. Efficient and easy to use. No nicks or blood.

If I had only the RR SLOC, I would be a happy shaver.

Highly recommended, in my opinion.

As an aside, the Personna Med Prep is a really good blade.

YMMV
