Word up, Schickheads!

Today is an anniversary shave of Schick's 1958 2911713 Injector Patent which pertains to models J onwards, M (Adjustables) excluded.

I chose an L: The Schick Stick.


Routine

Hot Towel
Wickham Soap Company Spice Trade (Super Smooth)
Kent Infinity Silvertex
Schick Stick - Schick Injector [2]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Mentholated Witch Hazel
Old Spice Aftershave Lotion
Next Absolute EDT

Technique

Bowl Lathered
Three Pass - WTG, then twice XTG in opposite directions

Impression

I've given injectors a bit of a break, having only really connected with them on the odd event I got something approaching a satisfactory shave.

Tonight, I nailed it! Boom! I got the angle spot on perfect and that was evident in the efficient clearing on the first pass, subsequent cross the grain passes finishing off the job.

Tonight was all about spice. I've been wearing Next Absolute today and being so warm out there, I thought it nice to carry on ... so, Wickham's new scent, Spice Trade, followed by an alum wash and mentholated witch hazel splash, then the genuine article: Old Spice. Lovely! Another spritz of Next Absolute and we're done.

Cracking shave, that ...
