That razor is sweet warhawk,  I looked them up and they also have a nice pricetag on them lol. And I read that they are hard to get ahold of.  Very nice.

That's a pretty sweet blade Warhawk.

First day with Feather blades, I'm quite pleased. As a rule I'll reserve judgement on the blades until I get through the first box.

Had another nice shave this AM:

Gem 1912
Flare Tip
Feather
TGN Brush
Arko

Mowing down a few days growth, so the first pass was with the SE and XTG and ATG was with the flare tip!

Was a decent shave!

Sweet razor is that a plastic handle or some other material. 

? I have a GEM micromatic , the top opens up , so what type of blade do I use for this .  A reg . double edge doesn't fit.   Kind of a ugly old razor but has a nice slant to it.  I really want to try it out.

Yep, it's a plastic handle.  Injector type E or G, i've been told what to check to find out later!

Regarding the SE blades, DE blades don't fit, check these http://razorbladesandmore.com/catalog/single-edge-blades

Cool Bluebriz,  I will have to order some.  I really like that SS Atlas DE razor but the price WOW !

I bought the 100 from there.  Excellent blades and SE blades last longer than DE blades usually.

I don't know about the SS Atlas DE...I'll have to check it out!

Hi Gents:  I am really liking all the participations in the SOTD thread.  Keep em coming.  My SOTD was very relaxing and BBS.  I hope your shaves are super smooth .  If anyone is on the DE or SE fence.... I highly recommend taking the plunge. 

Face (sink) & dome (shower)

Razor:  Weber Polished w/ Bulldog Handle

Blade:  Feather

Soap: Mike's Natural Soap (Orange, cedarwood, & black pepper)

Brush:  Semogue 1438

Dessert:  Ice cube rub, refrigerated witch hazel



WARHAWK
Tough times don't last but tough people do!!!

Mike's Natural Soap (orange, cedarwood, and black pepper) and a Semogue 1438 equals thick, yogurt lather that explodes with a refreshing scent.
