Nordic Shaving Company Pine Tar,
Gillette Rubie Platinum Plus (1),
Lemon Eau de Cologne,
Pine/turpentine/cedar aftershave balm.
Second shave with the Nordic Shaving Company Pine Tar, soap does a good job.
Scentwise, it starts to grow on me, it's more of a autumnsoap for me, it makes me wanting to build a huge campfire, that sort of things.
Early moningshaves usually mean the longer lasting, stronger scents, such as this terrific leatherscent.
The Wacker Stoßer is a really nice, bit heavier straight, extra special as it is one specially made for the FdR team, and therefore very dear to me.
This Mühle does shave great, another BBS & this time with a little more care a DFS. I do not know if its the head or the blade, but it pulled a little, i think i follow the experiment of @The King after another member mentioned, that a Feather blade was like it was made for the 41.
We will see.. At least i am smooth, relaxed, smelling ehh like margaritas and ready to visit the parents of my wife, o joy.

Up to now I used this SS Clone with a mild Feather Proguard Blade. Today it was the first try wit the Feather professional. I had so many contact-cuts, I never had before, even in the beginning of my straight razor career. The leather got quite red after the first pass and if I where a beginner I would probably have thrown this razor into a corner, but the Shave itself was not bad ad all. Ok, I had to use excessive the styptic Pencil afterward but after the bleeding had stopped, the face was washed with cold water and the ASL was up, everything was smooth as ever. However, hard-lesson learned, this blade makes no prisoners, I have to be more carful at first contact with the skin.
next step the "Super" professional blade one of my favorites (You'd better put in an IV in advance. )
you're just putting to much pressure on the razor even if you think you're not. I even use it to remove hairs from my eyelids and the outside of my ears.
