Today is the last day of vacation at the resort before heading home.  I guess the fun has to end sometime!  This is the last shave with the frozen scuttle.  I will thaw it out today for the trip home.  Nevertheless today’s shave was another great repeat of the past few days.

 I have tried hard with other vegetal based soaps, including Martin de Candre, Saponificio Varesino, Wickham... I prefer none of them over this one, and had I have to choose a substitute, that would be a Catie's Bubbles.

Blackland Dart
Gillette 7 o'clock yellow
Maseto Finest
Barrister and Mann reserve cool
Epsilon Blue Mediterranean Aftershave

The shave: Hard to put into any meaningful words...

The Soap: The lather was usable but I didn't really know whether I needed to add more soap or more water? A right head scratcher. Back to the drawing board.

The Razor: Second use of the Dart. Trying a new soap wasn't ideal but I really wanted to use the soap.
I think the 'lather' or lack of one didn't help matters.
It felt pretty aggressive today. I needed the lightest of light touches.
So much so I needed a number of touch ups. The finished results were good but not as good as the first shave.

The Aftershave: To end on a positive note. I really rated it.

Razor: Gibbs #17 Adjustable (5)
Blade: Modified Wizamet Super Iridium (7)
Brush: Epsilon 'Krion'
Soap: Grooming Dept. 'Coattails'

After having fallen in love with my REX Ambassador I had to seek out its inspiration. I found this one on eBay in great shape besides some brassing on the edges. I watched some videos and did some light reading to figure out how to modify a blade to fit due to the tabs at the end of the baseplate.

I went with a magnificent soap in GD's Coattails (known good) to make sure there were no variables to ruin my razor test run. I dialed it up to setting 5 because that is where I have been using my Ambassador.

I found the shave to be fantastic, I found it to glide a little better than the Ambassador probably due to the polished head but I did notice where the REX Supply Co. made major design improvements. The black handle of the Gibbs is hard plastic and so this razor (73g) is super top heavy. The REX is much more balanced, it has more heft (107g), and easier to hold on to due to the awesome knurling.

I prefer my Ambassador because of the better balance, heavier weight, and not having to modify DE blades to fit and also that it is a two piece design vice the three-piece design of the Gibbs. I did really love the way this razor shaved and will definitely continue to use it in the future.
