First go with the Valobra soap. I made a couple of test lathers prior to shaving so I knew what I'd be doing with it when it came to shaving. As a soap it's okay. I don't think I'd say it was anything special - it's quite dry and enjoys a good load of water, cushion is okay, slip is okay, protection is okay, post-shave feel is okay. It's okay. The scent is good.

Lovely shave with the 1912. My previous shave was with a 1912 that has had its comb removed (the SEvette) so I was keen to compare with a regular 1912 shave - the regular is smooth, smooth, smooth during the shave and a good post-shave feel. It's close. The SEvette is also smooth, quite eerily so, less noise and very close. Closer than the regular, that's for sure.
