Since it is Sunday I decided to give the Rolls a try.  The blade is looking pretty good but I'm not sure it is really ready so this might get interesting.

I washed and showered and said my prayers and faced Mecca and began.

First I built up a nice lather using the Zenith Horsehair (second actual shave) and the Old Spice puck.  The brush really feels great and I love the Zenith 506 handle and it really likes lots of water.

The first pass was somewhat tentative but the blade wasn't tugging and there was no irritation.  First pass wasn't very close and that's fine.  The second pass was better but it was still not quite as efficient as I like.  After a face rinse and alum rub I did some final touchup with lots of stretching and all the little techniques to get the hardest spots and then some TOBS Eton College as aftershave.

In all the final result was a PDG- shave for the day. It was comfortable, got around all the irritated places from the SE2 and looks and feels fine.  The Zenith brush is still shedding but only seven hairs this time instead of eleven. I'll give it a few more shaves to see if it settles down.  I did contact the seller and he is aware that some Zeniths have shown the same symptoms so all should be fine regardless.
