First impression are very favorable, face is smooth as silk hours later and there was no irritation. Very solidly constructed razor, not surprised I have the TR-1 and is it incredibly well machined. Second shave with the SV 30mm Paragon, this is an incredible brush, beautiful knot not a single black hair anywhere. Luxuriously soft tips much more so than on my SV 2.0, this is a top tier brush. Sorry to hear that QCS is closing up shop their soaps and croaps are really fantastic, I'm stocking up on my favorites before they are gone for good

First time using this soap and I must say I am very impressed. I whipped up a great lather to the point that I squeezed out the soap left in the brush and had another pass XTG in the opposite direction. Ended up with a BBS after chasing the baby all over the bathroom.

Great job on the theme Steve.....very well done!

Thank you for the kind words.  I bought the mask in Rome and thought it would work well in the photo.
