    "Focus on where the razors spine is during the shave." This will allow you to make pitch adjustments to the blade angle reducing the chance of cuts.

    SOTD 5-13-17:

    Vitos cream (pre-shave);
    Haslinger marigold (shave soap);
    Vulfix pure badger (shave brush);
    New Grelot « Rénommée mondiale » 6/8 (razor);
    Osma bloc d'alun (astringent)
    444 cream (post-shave);
    Grand Bay bay rum (after-shave).



    Given the recent discussion of the new Grelot line, I decided to pull my down from the shelf and take it for a spin. A fine shave was the result, two passes, plus touch-ups, with just a little alum tingle. Ergonomics and balance of razor/scales are quite nice. My only criticism is the hard-bite etching on the blade. The Haslinger line is probably my favorite of the hard soaps I've tried. Started off my second tube of 444 post-shave balm. Really a great blend with the bay rum, which has become one of my faves.

    Shave is similar to a wedge shave.. Face plane shave.

    SOTD 5-17-17:

    Apricot oil (pre-shave);
    C.O. Bigelow (shave cream);
    Vie-Long horse-badger (brush);
    Guyonneau Chatelleraut 6/8 (razor);
    Dr. Galen's skin tonic (astringent/after-shave).



    Another Thiers-forged razor from the man who sells the new Grelot-stamped razors. I've been using this one almost exclusively for the past few weeks and months. Recently, I was goofing around with it on the stones, resulting in some micro-chipping, so I rewrote things on the postage-stamp coticule and honyama as pictured. Rolling X-stroke lateral pass with water did the trick. 15 laps on white-pasted linen followed by 30 laps on the old hardware store llama led to a very nice, workingman's shave. A big improvement over the micro-chipped edge from two days before.

    Razor - Warranted - stub tail
    Brush - Semouge badger
    Soap - GFT limes
    AS - Osma Alum Bloc , Etat libre d'Orange

    Nice shaver, good steel, grip is difficult due to rounded shank / tang.
