Tabac Tuesday's Shave

Cold Water Rinse
Tabac Shave Soap
B-400 Badger by Tom
AutoStrop A1
Personna GEM SS PTFE
CWR
Tabac ASB

The Tabac Shave Soap face-lathered well with B-400 Badger by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

First Parker Adjustable Injector shave, Taconic Blade, Burma Shave Soap, Jayaruh brush, Preferred Stock Aftershave.

Went straight to highest (5) setting on the adjustment dial as I do with all of my adjustables.  Made for a very efficient shave.  The angle is a little different,to me, than my Schick razors but easy to find nonetheless.  It is overall a light razor with the bulk of the weight in the head.  Only thing that if found as a negative is that the guide bar does have play in it and can be skewed when adjusting, but a gentle tap and it is straight again.

Nice picture, cool shave.

Now that was a nice shave, i have been neglecting my 1912 style razors lately so i decided they must get back into rotation.
Today i bowl lathered and had plenty of slick, lightly scented lather for the shave, i keep expecting a pop of an air bubble on this Vintage tube, although it has not happened so far.
3 very efficient but comfortable passes leaving me BBS, soft and comfortable, this blade seems very smooth from the off.
A nice post shave finishing off todays ritual.
Stay safe and enjoy your day all.

I have never really loved the original handle on the V2 so today i tried it with the Sabre handle. I thought it worked quite well, it looks better to me anyway.
3 passes for a very comfortable BBS finish. just lovely.
