    Very impressed with both the scent of the Windsor and performance too. Lathered as easily as some of my best performing creams:

    Finally managed to fit a shave in, whew!

    This is my first time using a Feather blade in any razor, and this shave was the 5th use with the Feather. Smooooooooth! The Merkur 34c is smooth, but paired with the Feather it really sings. I've heard that these blades lose their sharpness rather quickly, so we'll see how long this one lasts. I typically get 4-7 shaves out of my blades before I toss them. I'll be taking this Feather to the limit.

    Soap used was Haslinger Schafmilch, which has just a lovely and light scent. Aftershave, which is not pictured was my custom blend of Pinaud Classic Vanilla, and then I applied Beau de Jour by Tom Ford for the 4th day in a row this week. I'm really trying to get to know this fragrance and appreciate its' beauty. I'm loving it!

    Razor - Fatip Classic Grande (open comb)
    Blade - Gillette Wilkinson Sword (3)
    Brush - Razorock Snowman
    Soap - Goodfellas’ Smile Pino Alpestre
    Post - Razorock Blue Barbershop Aftershave Lotion





    The Fatip is a great and inexpensive razor. It was a toss up between a Piccolo or the Grande but I liked the piped detail on the handle of the Grande. Very smooth shave with a Gillette Wilkinson Sword blade. Pino Alpestre soap has a woody and slightly herbal scent to my nose - a classic sort of smell and very nice. Razorock’s Blue Barbershop was apparently inspired by Floid Blue, is very refreshing and a decent lasting one for scent too.

    Dan, I gotta hand it to you, I am impressed with your first use of the Fatip. My first use was absolutely bloody carnage due to using too much pressure and the wrong angle. Most of my razors are on the mild side and so I have to remind myself when using an aggressive razor that little to no pressure is key. Once I dialed in the pressure and went in with a very steep angle, the shaves were definitely nice and smooth.
