Blade: Crystal Platinum
Soap: Stirling Lime
Post shave: witch hazel, PAA alum, Pinaud Lime Sec aftershave and Cremo beard balm.
This morning QShave with a Crystal Platinum went well on setting 3, Since this was the first time using this razor I decided to keep the setting set but tomorrow morning the shave will vary with each pass. The shave will start on 3 then 2.5 and the final pass will be setting 2. The QShave ,"Futur Clone", is a large adjustable razor that seems to be well made. I looked the razor over and couldn't find anything wrong with it. I don't own a Merkur Futur so I don't know if when a person is selecting a setting ... there isn't a "click" so a person could adjust that razor anywhere though out the range meaning that the razor could be set at 2.75 or 3.1. The most aggressive setting is 6 and the least aggressive setting is 1 ... but I did notice the selector will go to the "dot past 1 meaning .5. I don't know if the Merkur model does this or not. First impressions is this was a good buy. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
