    Blade: Feather Professional (3) sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity. AC 50mm Blades are pricier than Gem SS PTFE blades per shave.

    Those Sputnik blades are hard to find unless you buy like 100pcs. Not sure if you know they are a extra wide blade and are great for mild razors or just want a boost in aggression and efficentcy. How do you like them?

    This brush is a Semogue 2011 LE Caravela and was a joint project of two Iberian shaving forums, Barbear Clássico and Foro Afeitado. I consider myself very, very fortunate to have acquired this brush. It was first offered to members of the Barbear Clássico and Foro Afeitado. Any remaining were sold to the general public by Vintage Scent. My understanding is that these brushes are extremely hard to locate and purchase. Foroa.jpg

    Brush: Yaqi Ever-helpful 22 mm, 1st use, densely backed, great lather generator, pillow like soft tips, good backbone + good lather painter. The Yaqi 24 mm 2band badger brushes splays easier than this 22mm, I think the loft could be 2-3mm higher IMO like the Yaqi 22mm Sagrada Familia 2band badger, not a lather hog + designed for a great scrubber first impressions.
    It is early to totally evaluate the total potential of this little brush. Happy so far.
