What a good shave!
I had a first run with my birth year Gillette Slim Twist and it played out really well.

Second run with the Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Platinum and I am starting to get the idea that I much prefer a blade after its maiden voyage. My birth year Gillette Slim Twist was a lovely razor to use - I like long handles and this razor has a nice blade gap and reveal for me. I like it!
In all, a good shave. Not quite baby smooth, but it's close.
I left my 'tache ... just in case I need a head start for Movember. I fancy waxed ends, like a wide Poirot.
