Saturday 9th September 2017 Prep: Shower Razor: Le Coq Blade: L'Essor Brush: Vulfix / Cashmere Soap: DR Harris Windsor Aftershave: Simple Moisteriser EDT: Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
An extremely close shave, but at the price of comfort, this is my most aggressive safety razor by far and not one of my favourites, it has a huge blade gap and a lot of protrusion and it is also very heavy; it requires a super light touch any pressure results in soreness. A great shave but hard work!

Saturday 2nd September 2017 Prep: Shower Razor: GEM Featherweight Blade: ER Corrux NOS (21) Brush: Vulfix / Cashmere Cream: Gentleman's Face Care Club Aftershave: Simple Moisteriser EDP: Miller Harris Le Cedre
My 21st shave with this old blade and I can say with total honesty that the continued light stroppings on Feox has left it better now than when I first unwrapped it. I have ran out of different SE razors to use it with, I do have several more but they are duplicates of what I have used or Micromatics which will not take this blade. I am now frankly bored with using the same blade and want to get back to shaving with my 'wedge blade' razors, I have written 21 on the blade in Permanent marker and will bring it out again in a month or two and continue it's use.
What have I learned? 1. The blade gives a super comfortable shave and feels very skin friendly similar in feel to a 'wedge' blade. 2. A Feox pasted strop is required to keep the blade going, plain leather is not quite enough. 3. A super light touch is necessary on the strop. 4. The blade performs better in more aggressive razors, the 1924 shovelhead giving me the best shave. 5. The blade performs (rather surprisingly) well in late model razors like the Featherweight and Contour that were designed for the modern thinner blade. 6. The blade maintenance takes only a few seconds.
