Prep:   DR Harris Shampoo bar
Brush: Savile Row 3824 Silvertip Badger
Soap:   Lea stick
Razor: Merkur Futur (2)
Blade: Super Iridium (Polish) (3)
Post:   Alt Innsbruck Emulsion
Scent: DR Harris Arlington

Final mine site Donga shave with the same set up.  The work has gone well, but I am glad to get out of the oppressive heat and humidity.
Now that I've sussed that the water is hard, I'm nutting out a better method to lather to compensate.  I am loading about twice as much soap as usual from the stick to my face, and also applying soap between each pass.  Much improved, but I'm glad I don't have to shave with this water all the time.
I was on the third pass (ATG), and met with significant resistance on my neck, where my bristles are coarsest.  I was confused, as this had not happened in the previous two shaves, and there was plenty of life left in the blade.  Then it hit me - I had forgotten to apply pre-shave emulsion, which is a standard stage in my normal routine.  Goes to show, at least for me, that a pre-shave product enhances my shave.

I've had this Durham razor in my collection for sometime now but never gave it a run. I picked up a few Personna blades that were compatible from Try a Blade shortly after receiving, but only gave one a run on my OC Durham. Seeing Matt Hilton's shave with his beautiful Enders razor inspired me to give it another go. 

It was a PITA but I did manage to Strop the Personna blade about 20 times each side per tips I've read online. I have not shaved in a good day and half so my naturally coarse, thick stubble was on point. First pass was tuggy but nothing uncomfortable. Had I not skipped time between shaves I'm sure it would have been a lot smoother. Part way through I held the razor slightly off horizontal so that it acted more like a slant which was a great improvement. 2nd and 3rs pass was much smoother and awarded me a BBS Shave with no nicks, weapers, or irritation. Definitely look forward to playing with this razor a little more. The fantastic soap and splash needs no introduction! Wink
