Black Handle Super Speed - W1

What is it with me and Black Handle Super Speeds? I now have a hand full of them. This one I could not pass up. It is a W1, first quarter 1976. That makes it son Philip's birth quarter razor. I would give it to him, but he uses an electric razor.







Shave of the Day - 10/22

Proraso Pre Shave
Jeff's Soap Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #227
Gem 1911 Lather Catcher
Original Gem Cutlery SE
CWR
Thayer's Peach WH
Pinaud Vanilla

I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Jeff's Soap Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #227 synthetic brush.  I did the two passes with the Gem 1911 Lather Catcher and vintage Gem Jr. blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave.  After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Peach WH and then Pinaud Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Colgate Mug Shaving Soap

I am going to be using the CMS all next week to the end of OCtober, so, I thought I would give it a test lathering today. I used the brush I will be using next week, the JR#229 synthetic. I only bowl lather for the fun of it. I normally just face lather, but this lathered up pretty good. I don't know how old this soap is, but it has no scent at all, or my smeller isn't working. Anyhow, here it is.
