SE SOTD, Sat Jan8th 2022 Razor: Yaqi V2 Excalibur AC 50mm- Mfg 2021> excellent tame mid range, Very enjoyable carefree shave this morning, good design, small head parts can make it difficult to assemble, work over a wash cloth makes life a whole lot better for assembly, excellent daily driver for most folks IMO. Blade: Feather pro AC- sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity. 1st shave with this blade is awesome usually. Soap: Yaqi Green sample croap- nice mild fresh scent, excellent lather qualities. I think it is a good soap for 1st use. Brush: Yaqi 24mm Dandelion cashmere knot, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scrub + excellent lather painter. Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area. Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. Post shave: Fine fresh Vetiver with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturising lotion + scentless. Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = Excellent shave with my Yaqi V2 Excalibur with a Feather AC professional. Have some great shaves!
