Gents,

Hello!  I picked up this little beauty, and have yet to use it.  I am going to give it a whirl tomorrow!

Its inaugural shave is going to use a Voskhod Blade, Truefitt & Hill Almond Shave Cream, and Chella Cool Aftershave!  I am excited to try it out.  

NOTE:  I may call an audible on the field, and use a Polsilver Blade.

Nice mellow shaver and a great find. Do you know what year that is from? '57 maybe? I can't tell.

So...I did call an audible! I used a polsilver, and instead of Truefitt and Hill Almond Shave Cream...I used Cella!

I will start with the razor since that is the title of the post. I was very disappointed with the stubble left after the first pass, the second pass was meh so-so, and I was prepared to think negatively of the razor.

However, this thing shined like a superstar on the third and touch up passes! Like amazingly brilliant with zero irritation! I am very very happy with how it performed overall!

The Cella...first time I used it, and in my opinion it is better than Boellis Panama in every category except presentation...the two are not even in the same solar system as far as presentation (or price) goes! I have ABC coming this week and I am anxious to compare the three!

Chella Cool Aftershave...it’s one of my favorites! Sets my face on fire...turns it red like a sunburn....and then just as fast it goes very cool and the sunburn disappears!

Fantastic overall shave, and I keep trying to find any missed stubble on my face...NOTHING!

Two thumbs up!

Thanks for sharing pics of your razor! It is really really nice! Mine is just in good user grade condition...I don’t know if I would use one that was as mint as yours!

You know of course, that you need to begin the quest for a birth quarter razor!

Ha! I am not sure about that, but I was thinking about trying to find a mint one of these...the shave was such a beautiful thing...this morning I felt my face, and I may not get to shave today it was so close (and at the same time irritation free)!

I bought and sold three before I came across this one. Coincidentally I have a Red Tip and case that's in as good condition and is also my birth year and quarter. Lucky
