Haha... Hey @Maladroit, I do have Feathers. The first time I was brave enough to load one was at about 6 weeks in. I thought I had “perfected“ my technique, rotating through a mix of Astras, Derby’s, Parkers, Wilkinson Swords, etc and I thought, I’m ready!
On the first shave I was ultra careful and got a pretty good shave with just one or two very minor weepers. Day two and I decided to “Go for it”. I was gonna get BBS. The first 2 passes went well, but I got a little greedy with the ATG pass and got a bit of a reality check 😳.
I ended up getting a week of great shaves out of that blade, but I definitely learnt to treat ‘em with respect.
Thanks @Catmanfan Shaves. This wet shaving thing is fast becoming an obsession and P&C has been a great place to find out about all those new soaps, blades and razors that I “just have to get”.
Here is today’s delivery of “must haves” from VSHOD.
