My first encounter with a near wedge blade. I really had to adjust to not having any audible feedback. Although it was a great shave, I think I need to have a few more shaves with this razor to adjust to it's grind.

Have a nice day!

Anherb AS Conditioner
Alcolado Glacial Menthol Splash
Brut Cologne

I'm sitting here with a coffee and enjoying the smoothness, or rather I should say the mega-BBSness of this beautiful shave with my wonderful Dovo Bismarck. I think it took me more than hour to complete it between my shower and my pre-shave prep. To this day I cannot believe how nice Irena's Ice Mint soap smells, and how great it lathers, and its menthol effect is STRONG. The Anherb conditioner is plenty chilly also, and it does wonderful things for sensitive skin. This might sound strange, but I find the Penguin to be slightly colder than the Rubby Dubby.
