    Best yet and no irritation at all ... one nick but that was my fault with technique - did struggle a bit getting a good lather with the brush soaked in cold water.

    SEptemper is a interesting Thread, chance to take out my larger collection of razors now and give them a whirl, Seen a Weck razor today and that's a rarity and I guess a excellent razor from some of the experienced hands also have mentioned.

    This Schick G injector is a rarity, it has a G1 handle with a G spring and was MFG in Canada 1937 pat base plate at the Niagara Falls Schick plant before it closed(they claim no G types where made in Canada?).
    Razor: Schick G1 type injector 1946> Canadian variant
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE injector blade (1) awesomely sharp and a bit smooth also.
    Soap : Razorock XXX
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft
    Preshave: wet the face + Aloe Vera gel
    Postshave: Alum block+ cold water rinse
    Post shave: Razorock Blue barber+ witch hazel+ Nivea balm
    Results: 9.5/10 or CCS,DFS,BBs + Alum indicated minor irritation and one blemish weeper.= :001_smile

    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

    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.

  13. 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
