    (Face & head Shave.)

    A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend...

    It's been a while since i last used the efficient yaqi katana of which i will be using with all my shave sets this week...The Dorco Prime Platinum blade paired together wonderfully with the assertive katana making a smooth efficient duo...The Katana is one of the very few razors i found my shaving angle after the first 5-7 seconds feeling comfortable shaving with it throughout the shave.

    What i like about the Katana is the audio feedback which tells me it's cutting through my stubble and i have found the right shaving angle, the efficiency of this razor is amazingly good.

    The recently acquired Omega 10066 boar brush is breaking in wonderfully. My rekindled love for my humble boar brushes is growing with each use.

    A phenomenally close comfortable head/dome shave from the Katana! WOW.... 'It's the best that I've had with the Yaqi Katana to date'. On equal par to my Supply V2 and Injector razors.

    I now have second thoughts of putting in an order for the Leaf Twig razor as a Christmas gift to myself do i really need It? I think not as my Supply V2 & other injector razors Gillette Guard & Yaqi Katana are now my chosen razors for head/dome shaving.

    A new batch of Schick Twin Injector blades a Semogue 2000 boar brush & a refill puck of Mitchell's Wool Fat is now on my Christmas list to the big fella with the white beard instead.

    A very close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few small few small dollops of L'0REAL Soothing Birch Sap PSB.

    My face & precious swede are feeling smooth & smelling divine. ;)

    Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Fantastic shave and setup Barry. I toyed with adding the Twig, but like you, I came to the conclusion that I have enough razors to shave my face and dome.

    Just before writing this, I received a post telling me what "OSP" means.He said they make great soaps. I agree, after the first use. The report was that it is a thirsty soap, and there too I agree. Just a few swirls made it look as if it had been used for a week. 2 passes. No Cuts, Knicks, or Polka-dots. The only Spice aftershave I had was Doc Ezlovan's brand(brew??), It's too strong for the OSP, which isn't saying it's bad, as I love Stoylin, but I need a lighter Spice A.S. for the "Old Gold" soap. If I can find one soon(yes, I'll lower myself to get a "New Spice" if I have to), I'll return the Stoylin Spice A.S. to be used with the Stoylin Spice soap. Hawkridge is my favorite of the New Spice brands. Outta This World Excellent.

    Old fashioned Saturday Shave. I swear this 1907 Lather Catcher is one of the most efficient razors I own! Lots of blade feel and feedback from such a featherweight razor! No pressure at all when using this one. I love the blade feel I get. I also warmed up my scupper by filling it with HOT water and enjoyed warm lather. It was 35 degrees when I got up!

    Razor - 1907 Ever Ready "Lather Catcher"
    Blade - GEM Personna SS (2)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Red
    Soap - MWF "Original 1893 Formula"
    Brush - Classic Shaving synthetic
    Post shave - Thayers Toner "Lavender" & Geo F Trumper "Skin Food" Sandalwood
    AS - Pinaud Clubman

    This razor is always a joy to shave with. It is even trying to knudge the Hawk from it's top spot of the single edges! They just didn't improve on this razor! (IMHO) I did a 2-pass shave WTG & ATG with no cleanup needed. Super smooth and feelin' clean! Alum bar raised no feedback.

    This razor is NOT for beginners. I can really feel that blade! Angle must be steep and very light touch. It is even lighter than my GEM Featherweight! I find it to be a most efficient razor that does not require multiple passes. I could stop after one pass if I was in a hurry but, who wants to hurry with such a pleasant tool to use? I look forward to enjoying this one again tomorrow! ;)

    Of course my buddy was supervising.
