One Photo = Two Shaves

It has now been 7 shaves using Rapira Swedish blades. This is my second blade with at least one more shave in it.  I’ve been using just my two adjustables so far with the following settings:

WTG pass = Set to “7” (or “6”)

Both XTG passes set to “3”

Final ATG pass set to “1”


Each result has basically been the same. Great BBS shaves.  This photo is from yesterday and today’s shave. The only thing to change was the brushes.

  • Soap – C. O. Bigelow
  • Brush – Semogue 1520 boar (Thursday)
  • Brush – Rubberset 153 boar (all original) (Today)
  • Razor – 1960 Gillette 195 (fatboy)
  • Blade – Rapira Swedish
  • Aftershave – Family Dollar “Brut”



Tomorrow I will start with the non-adjustables.
