Shaver: Focus Slim Al shavette
Blade: Sharp Durablade half blade
Soap: Phoenix Artisan Accouterments Sun Down
Brush: RazoRock 400
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Aqua Velva aftershave balm and Stirling Orange beard oil.
I am counting and yes, this is the eighth shave with the Focus Slim Al shavette and the first with Sharp Durablade half blade in the shavette. I will use this brand again tomorrow but the with the grain pass was very smooth. Against the grain was similar to the other blades that I have used in this shavette. So where are these blades made? Bangladesh, per durablade.biz. Swiss quality but made in Bangladesh. The soap scent and performance was nice, IMO a person should be quite happy with the scent strength and performance of the soap. I do wonder if the soap improved to quality of my shave because these blades have yet to have found a shaver that works well with them. I will see tomorrow. This soap is the 2 ounces size, a size I prefer. This size takes up less room in the den and if the soap didn't turn out as expected, it's $7.50 and not $15. I was on the email notification about this brush, not only do I like the shape of this brush handle but I like the color. This brush had no problem lathering up the soap. There was plenty of lather for another shave. Fine's aftershave ... you won't very many disappointing comments about Fine aftershave. Good stink IMO. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
