Soap: Mystic Water Shaving Soap - Cedar & Sage (sample)
Brush: SOC Cherry Boar
Razor: Supply - plate No: 2
Blade: Schick injector (1)

First shave off the Supply was absolute rubbish.:( Easily takes out worst shave of the month for me. I'm going to ditch the blade and manually load one of my own Personna blades instead of injecting just in case it was a loading issue that blunted the blade. I'm assuming it was a blade issue and not the razor as the shave felt like medium aggression but was extremely inefficient. I was wondering if Plate 2 would be too mild but I think with a sharp blade it would be slightly more efficient than a G Type Schick Injector.
The Supply like the Schick Injectors is very intuitive to use so I had high expectations. The razor is relatively heavy in the hand compared to other injector razors.
I will console myself with another Jnat @bald as honed straight razor shave tomorrow.:)(y)

Hi Paul, very agile and nimble razor that provided a smooth and comfortable shave. I didn't even feel it most of the time. Post shave smoothness as good as the GC 84-P.
The handle is a bit thinner than my other razors but this adds to the agility. Feels like a travel razor that could handle daily shaving for a few years.
Concerned I might over tighten and split the handle like my 1930's Gillette Ball End. Definitely a good performer that will join the rotation along with Slim, GC and Slants.

Jeff is the Progress part of the regular rotation, or has that been banished to storage?

Instead I’m having to settle for Speick in a used Harris tub...



Still delightful but post shave feel of the soap is below average IMO.
