Drink: Rum & Old Jamaican
Music: Crime & the City Solution


Bulldog Face Wash
NSS Unscented (Goat Milk)
Kent Infinity Silvertex
WJM CC1118 45
Gillette Silver (Govt) L3 [1]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Brut Musk Aftershave

Face Lathered
Two Pass - WTG & X/ATG

Now this was a good shave. Smooth, comfortable and efficient in two passes.

I think it helped that I really wanted to enjoy the razor, which I think is a WWII de-mobilisation razor. I do wonder what the CC means: Charing Cross? WJM is most likely WJ Myatt, the manufacturer, but CC and 1118 elude me.

I popped a Government issue Gillette blade into it - a Silver, dated L3. So, 1966 or 1941? 1966, more likely. It did its thing - a good, clean shave without roughness nor irritation afterwards.

A very nice shave ...

My pre-tournament shave: two days of fencing this weekend.
