Two Pass - WTG & WTG (Slant)

Clever little razor, this Kriss Kross and by happy coincidence it takes modern injector blades.

Mild, but swing the handle around and you find that it can go a full 180 degrees, so you can use it as a regular razor, as a straight or somewhere in between as a slant, and it's that shave that really makes this razor - shaved on an angle is much the same as shaving on a slide. The effect is the same, and a method I deployed for my second pass.

The soap? Yes, Meißner Tremonia again ...

Tonight, Pink Grapefruit as a hard soap sample. It's okay. I say okay, but as a soap, the performance is stunning: loading, lathering, shaving, washing off and post-shave feel are all just a cut above.

The scent is light, perhaps too light ...

I know pink grapefruit is not quite as spritzy as regular grapefruit, but the scent seems to be lacking to my nose and my palate. Given Meißner Tremonia's other soaps and their scent therein, I rather expected to be able to taste this one, but no! Light.

Perhaps one for you folks who complain these soaps have a scent that is just too strong, too lingering and too out there. This is light, straight-up and fleeting.
