    Razor - Hawk v3 with open comb base plate
    Blade - Captain Titan Mild (3rd use)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Red
    Soap - Mudder Focker
    Brush - Simpson T2 Trafalgar synthetic
    Post - Thayers Toner & Geo F Trumper "Skin Food" Sandalwood
    AS - Pinaud Clubman Whiskey Woods

    Washed face while I warmed bowl and brush with HOT water. This soap is nice and slick and creamy. Easy to whip up. The Mild blade got me clean and close with zero irritation and no cuts. 2-pass shave WTG & ATG. No cleanup. I have gotten good with the Mild blade and when I bin this blade, I wil try with a Professional blade. Riding the cap is the only way to shave and not cut myself with this open comb. You can feel the blade. I see this as more aggressive than what everybody calls "The Beast" (Muhle R41). This is the Beast to me! Me like!

    Zero feedback from the alum bar. No cuts, nicks, or errors. Very Nice!

    I still recall how this setup cut me several times the first time I tried it. I have tamed the Beast!
