Nice headshaver! Little cloggy, but very nice.
Played a bit with losening the handle by a quarter and by a half turning of the handle.
Nice, it's the first razor where losening don't make the blade ramble to much for me.

Today afternoon shave. And have to say a nice one, yet an irritation, using a razor that shaves perfectly and has been in my possession for a while, but I just can't figure out the maker. The only clue is the mark that I cannot find anywhere in the books.

Who knows, another member of this forum may have an idea.An
Anyway, the shave. in 2 passes BBS (almost a shame that there was nothing left to shave).

Unknown razor 7/8.
Chiseled Face Ghost town Barber. Custum synthetic brush.
Gentlemens Pride Asb.

Brush and soap:
Semogue 1305 Boar Bristle Shaving Brush and Barrister and Man Adagio:
When you are guided by a database in which you choose the products to shave with and then you forget to fill it up properly, it is possible that you have soaps that never come up for consideration. This morning I was loading the Semogue 1305 Boar Bristle Shaving Brush from a jar of Barrister and Man Adagio, a delicious soap that had never been used by me before. I forgot to put this delicious flower, musk and a light menthol note scented soap in a table. Yesterday I noticed that there was a difference somewhere and that was 3 pots of soap, which had been unopened for a long time, a luxury problem. This adagio is tasty and not a pity that it came back up again.
Blade and razor:
The Treet Dura Sharp used for the 5th x.
The Treet Dura Sharp reached my 5 standard, but not completely convincing. This is the 2nd blade, which I use, but I think I have better blades. This is of course very personal. The blade is not bad, but certainly not an above average good blade for me. Somehow he quickly loses his cut. The Ikon Shavecraft 101 combination with the Treet Dura Sharp is not effective. This razor has two sides oc and sb, but doesn't make much difference whichever side I use, don't get that really smooth feeling. Well, optically smooth, but too much hair remains, when I feel over my skull. Funny, the beard is smooth.
Result: DFS.
Finally: nice and autumnal finish with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün, Mennen Baume Energisant and Pinaud-Clubman Whiskey Woods. Tomorrow another forgotten soap.
