A few SE razors arrived over the weekend, this being one of them along with a Gem Clog Pruf and an Open Comb Micromatic. After a good clean I choose the 1924 today.

Not a bad shaver, I’m using a blade which I took out of the 1912 and I’m not sure how many shaves I’ve had from it but it was still quite sharp.

I choose the sample of the Knockout Shave Black soap as I know from using it previously that the lather is nice and thick and protective.

I got a good shave, mostly BBS above the jaw and DFS below the jaw with no nicks or wounds. I probably need to get the angle of SE shaving back a bit, but I’m happy with the results.

I finished off with a splash of Myrsol Antesol and a tiny amount of Truefitt and Hill No 10 balm as the SE shave left me feeling a tiny bit raw, possibly the slightly blunt blade.

I’d put some of the Art of Shaving Lemon EDT on earlier and my wife said it smelt nice so I put some more on for the rest of the day.
