Shaver: Parker 111W
Blade: Crystal Super Stainless Platinum coated
Soap: RazoRock Don Donato
Brush: RazoRock 400
Post shave: witch hazel, PAA alum, Don Donato aftershave and PAA Malbolge beard oil.
Sunday morning shaving with the Parker 111W, there is a slight blade over hang, weighs in at about three ounces and is about four inches long. The handle is made of white resin. I would say that the shaver is at the top of the mildness scale or at the bottom of the medium scale ... I think it's right at that line depending on the user and what razor blade being used. For me, this is a nice shaver, a keeper. I like how this razor feels in my hand and the weight is in that range where it feels like it is ready to do shave, just relax and let the razor and blade do the work.
This was my first time using the Crystal blades and it was a pleasant one. These blades feel much like the Personna reds. A very nice blade indeed.
Don Donato is a lightly scent soap ... herbal and woody scent per the web site. My nose really couldn't pick a scent off of the soap but some from the aftershave. The soap performed as expected ...creamy and smooth. RazoRock soap has always performed well for me and the aftershave as well. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
