Results not as good as yesterday, not sure if it was me or the blade went dull all ready. Supposedly Feathers do that, I'm not sure as this is my first time with them. Also found that a nice creamy, thick lather is not needed or required as the razor clogs easily. Still, the shave came out ok. Now go enjoy your day folks.
Omega 11126 boar OSP Bay Rum PAL Injecto-Matic Schick Proline Type B- 38mm [ 1 ] Alum Rub/Rinse Off Bay Rum A/S Splash
My first use of this Injector sized Schick AC blade in a Vintage Injector. As the dispenser has no key, blades need to be cross loaded into a keyed dispenser. Shave was very smooth and close. This could well be my Injector blade of choice in the future, Will see after a few more shaves in different razors.

One Blade Core razor Feather blade WD Silver Tip brush VDH Luxury SS Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe Pinaud Clubman A/S
Put in a new blade and went at it. Less than stellar shave but ok in the end. The company website asks you to use the razor for 21 days to adjust to it. I'll try to do that and then decide what to do with it. Now go enjoy your day folks
Friday 23rd June Chinese Silvertip Fibre OSP Sandalwood General w/Schick Proline #3 Rinse > Alum > Rinse Electrif's Bay Rum Lacura Aq Cream Moisturiser Extremely smooth shave this afternoon, the General / Proline combo really showing their prowess. I in love with the sandalwood scent on the OSP, raising it to a favoured high in my OSP collection. The best thing is I can still see the OSP imprint in the soap telling me there are many more excellent shaves to go.
RazoRock Syn 22mm Lea Classic soap Supply Single Edge V1-plate 3 Schick Proline Type B [ 2 ] Alum Rub/Rinse off Lea Classic A/S Lotion
My Second Shave with this blade in the Single Edge, confirms to me that the blade chosen for a Razor can make a difference to its performance. What for me was not a wholly satisfying Razor, has been turned into a good one when coupled with the Proline. The Shave ultra smooth and very close, with no problems during or post shave.

Vulfix 404 mixed Blues soap Schick Golden 500 Schick Proline Type B [ 1 ] Alum Rub/Rinse off Tuff Green A/S Lotion
I chose this Razor as it is one of the modern Schicks that only takes a single blade, making it a good test bed for the Proline Type B. Loading a blade was very easy from the host keyed dispenser. Though the J3 is rather long, I liken it to a magic wand which whacks away the whiskers. With the Proline the shave is ultra smooth, and though the Razor is mild it is extremely efficient. The Shave was not only comfortable but the quality of the finished Shave was excellent.

Sunday 25th June Zenith 506A TS OSP Barbershop General Kai Captain Titan Mild Pink #2 Rinse > Alum > Rinse Blue Stratos A/S Gillette Pro 3in1 Balm Second use of the Kai blade was less tuggy than the 1st, so I'll keep it in rotation. It isn't as good for me as the Schick Proline. I'm so pleased I bought a cart of those.
Nivea Men Face Wash Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap Jayaruh #188 Gem 1911 Lather Catcher CVS SE CWR, Asma Alum Block Thayer's Lemon WH Lucky Tiger
After my face wash, I applied Proraso Pre Shave Cream. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #188 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Gem 1911 Lather Catcher (thanks Fuzzy) with a CVS blade, and I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
