Nothing special. I test shave on 2 or 3 days stubble only. (no testing on a daily shave, I hardly ever shave 2 days in a row.) I was my face with tea tree soap (not that it matters, but it's just the soap I use). I latter on my face with a Semogue silvertip badger brush. Soap is a 50/50 mixture of Palmolive and Tabac.

I don't think that a special protocol will be necessary. After all we want to find out how an edge performs in a real life situation. The data sheet will be standardized though, and the alum block is a fixed paragraph on that one. (Those interested can download the data sheet at the "Heritage" section).tat2Ralfy said:Also on a side note, with OTB (operation true blue) did you think about setting out some sort of shaving technique? or do you think those involved would be better to stick to their own tried and tested way of going about it?
