Schick Krona

Shave of the Day
September 8, 2013

•Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender Soap
•Kingsley badger brush
•Schick Krona razor
•Persona blade (2)
•Brisk aftershave

Finally getting the chance to try the Schick Krona. This one is an early version with the metal tip.

A great close shave. I will be able to really judge the closeness this evening.

The razor is light weight, mild, efficient and easy to use.

A great start with TOBS Lavender soap and a great finish with Brisk aftershave.

Gillette Milord Razor

Shave of the Day
August 10, 2013
•Proraso green tub soap
•EverReady boar brush
•Gillette Milord Razor
•Bluebird blade
•Brisk aftershave

Last day for the Milord, and what a great trial for a new (to me) razor. I have no complaints , and could survive with it as my sole razor.

The Bluebird blade performed so well that I probably could get a few more days out of it if I had to.

However, It is time to switch.

The Proraso is always refreshing, and I could use it daily.

Brisk is a Skin Bracer simile, but I find the scent to be even better.
