What razor/blade did you use today

Lord L5/bic chrome (1)

First use. It eventually got the job done, however with pressure and one extra pass. Very benign, no irritation whatsoever despite the multiple passes. If I keep it, it will be to use it occasionally as a technique refresher. I might donate it to my buddy who has been using mach3 for years and thinks I am weird to devote so much energy into this :laugh:

I have to add that the head tolerances are perfect. The blade goes in absolutely straight and square and I tried it 10 times. My other Lord razor has the same with respect to blade alignment. Maaaaybeee some german/italian razor makers have a thing to learn from humble Lord?

Second blade third shave.

The combo produced a BBS shave result. This blade is of the very sharp but smooth camp and requires a very light touch in this razor.
