Even with such a meh blade like Rockwell.

Zazor shave again. Sadly I managed to nick myself on my throat, so I was left with a small cut about the same size as the entire DE blade. But at least it wasn't around my adam's apple.

Soap: Proraso red tub
Blade: Personna red
Razor: Zazor
Pre-shave: Proraso green 15 ml travel size
Aftershave: Nivea Men sensetive aftershave balm
 
Aug 20: Back to the Proraso Pro

Lather:
Stirling Baker Street (sample)
Brush: Proraso Professional (27/57mm)
Razor: Feather SS Kamisori 6/8 (clone)
Blade: Feather Artist Club ProGuard [4]
Post: Pur-est Musk/Bay Rum/Glycerine/Aloe

Great shave with the fixed handled Feather SS clone. I don't know if I'm liking it better than the folding version, but they are different. There's definitely a place for both in my den.
 
Aug 21: Horrible Shave

Lather:
Cyril R. Salter Luxury Cream - French Vetiver
Brush: Semogue 620 (21/50mm)
Razor: Univinlions Kai Captain, straight (clone)
Blade: Feather Artist Club ProGuard [5]
Post: Alum
Balm: Aqua Velva Sensitive 5 in 1 After Shave Balm

Horrible shave today - I was so unhappy with the results that I didn't want to take a picture to remind me of it.

Soap and brush were amazing, but the wheels feel off the bus during the first pass. I got 6 weepers! I know this razor demands the utmost respect with a new sharp blade, but I didn't think I did anything wrong. The alum burned like brimstone.

Time to regroup and take it easy for a couple of days.

Ended up with a daily double today. Three passes with the KAMA and I could hear the stubble on the towel after rinsing. Went to the Universal for a 2nd ATG pass (4th total) for the cleanup.

STILL working on the 8 blade sampler pack from a year ago. Yeah, the Universal doesn't come out to play very often. Great razor when it does make an appearance though.

For the first time since Jimmy Carter was president, I did something new shaving. I shaved with a shavette. A Tuckmar with half a DE blade. I think I should have used something different, but it was what I had. Shave was not bad, one weeper that I do not know from where. Soap gave good cushioning and no burn from the Old Spice
