    Jayaruh #224
    Fredrick Reynolds 5/8
    New Improved
    Gillette Silver Blue
    CWR
    Thayer's Lemon WH

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Mitchell's Wool Fat face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #224 synthetic brush. I did the first pass with my Fredrick Reynolds 5/8 straight and clean up with the Gillette New Improved and Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    SOTD 10.9.2017

    Pre-shave: coffee, hot shower & Shave Secret
    Soap: Williams Mug + Head Slick Mentholated Shave Cream
    Razor: vintage Probak (3rd shave in a row)
    Blade: German Wilkinson Sword (6)
    Brush: Marvy boar
    Post-shave: Thayer's Lavender WH, Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling Balm, Skin Bracer

    Last week I did a mix of Williams and Head Slick cream and really liked the results. I had to do it again and this mixture provided a creamy, pleasant, skin-friendly, slick lather. I'll be mixing these two again many times in the future.

    This was my third shave with the Probak and the 6th with the Wilkinson blade. Since I haven't shaved for 72 hours I discovered this blade wasn't "cutting" it very well. I love Wilkinson blades, but since my face stubble was heavier and this blade had already seen a lot of shave action it was time to change it out. I didn't even get through a single pass and I reached for a new blade. I went for my open pack of $1 DE blades (from either Family Dollar or Dollar General) made in Vietnam. I hadn't used these for months since I've acquired better blades. But I need to get these used up as well. I've had both good and questionable blades in these packs. Today, I got a good blade. The end result after 2 full passes, and a clean up pass on the neck was a very close, comfortable shave... nearly baby smooth but I'm not ready to call that.

    Happy shaving, everyone! IMG_1305.JPG IMG_1308.JPG

    This combination razor/blade is OK, comparable to the combination of day 9 (Kai Captain Titan Mild Luffy).
