Very kindly, a chap on a UK shaving forum leant me a couple of razors: an Every Ready Streamline and his custom-made Kamisori-style cut down razor.
Well, I could not resist ...
NSS Rasage Traditionel
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Two pass - Both WTG
I'm not a straight edge shaver. I have used a straight edge a couple of times and each time, my heart was in my mouth the whole time, breath held, eyes wide open, the fear factor giving me hyper-awareness.
Not with this razor. It felt so right. I just slicked and sliced around my face and thoroughly enjoyed it. I intended just a scrape down the sides and cheeks, but it was going so well I carried on and have a huge smile now ... not a razor smile, just a huge, happy smile.
Very, very much enjoyed.
