The sausage is up for sale. My left forearm is forever tainted, it’s been 35hrs now and it’s still there. Normal showering doesn’t work. I’m going to shave the hairs off next and after that the arm may have to come off.
There’s a German saying that I forget, it means something like ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing’. Who needs sun anyway with all those ladies walking about wearing next to nothing distracting me...
Glad you’re liking them, with the exception of Alexandria, they are probably my oud-less favourites.

Razor: Fatip Piccolo
Blade: BIC (3)

Very nice shave with the Piccolo but not as smooth as I hoped the BIC would be and too much clean up required to get to BBS. I think I'll try a Nacet in this razor next.
No:35 performed well producing a very rich creamy lather. I'm looking forward to trying this with a straight tomorrow.

so for the final razor from the box i chose to use the mergress for the last couple of days.this is how an adjustable should be for the most part. its a solid feeling razor in the hand and shaves very nicely very close and efficient and with just enough blade feel to keep you on your toes. infact i never went above the 4 setting and settling on about 3 and a bit. the only down side is it does feel a bit unbalanced being tail heavy and my biggest quibble being the handle.its slippery and getting a consistent grip is difficult because it slides around so much. im guessing the progress base razor with the plastic knob while looking tacky would balance better.

Travelling through JPN for the next week, spring has sprung the Sakura are at the tail end of their blossom, so thought Florian would do the trick. Great shave this morning.

Hi @Ybbor , have you seen the Leaf razor? Would that be viable alternative to the Mach 3? There’s a thread kicking round the forum at the moment discussing it and a couple of fellas have given positive feedback about it. Or because the blades are removable that precludes it as air travel option?
