    SOTD : 28th April 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Sea Salt & Fennel Extract 2 in1 Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Chantry Lavender Goat's Milk Bar Soap.
    Brush: Semogue 1305.
    Face Lather.
    Lather: Razorock "What The Puck? !"Orange Sunrise Shaving Soap.
    Blade: Feather Hi Stainless. (D4)
    Razor: Merkur 37C.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic./Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.


    Early Morning Shave,

    An enjoyable shave to finish my shaving week off in style.

    Last outing of the Feather Hi Stainless which has performed wonderfully throughout the week with no blood-loss drama.

    My first few shaving experiences with the Feather Hi Stainless where uncomfortable which was down to my lack of shaving experience technique & shaving confidence which had nothing to do with the blade itself.

    I was stupidly naive at the time in believing the daunting exaggerated mythological fearsome reputation reviews on them which planted a seed of hesitation in my mind before my first maiden shave with them.

    After my two week focus with the Feather Hi Stainless my personal opinion is i cannot deny the maiden head shave at the weekend paired together with the R41 was phenomenally smooth, comfortable, very efficient and was one of the best DE razor face & head shaves that i've had to date...Adding to that the R41/Feather is now my new found favourite most smooth efficient duo for DE razor head shaving.

    My only small crit with them is i was only get 2-3 max good shaves from them after that they quickly lost their smoothness, ok i take into account that head shaving reduces a blade edge & smoothness much quicker when head shaving, that said, i now look forward to using up the remaining 2O+ blades that i have left in future shave that have been gathering dust for such a long time.

    As always, this is just my personal opinion and like every other wet shaving soft & hardware, reviews/opinions are very subjective especially DE blades which have to be the most subjective topic within the traditional wet shaving forums....YMMV.

    A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    The Shannon's Soaps Indigo Oud Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #434 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER 3D Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thursday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Shark day 2
    Bundubeard Klipspringer’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    Jaco also makes some of the finest soaps I’ve ever had the pleasure of using - his Klipspringer is glycerine based, it has a beautiful coffee/peppermint scent, it’s so easy to lather, it’s supposedly the mildest of his mentholated soaps but it’s still very cooling, and the skincare is terrific. The Prep and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave were such a perfect finish. Three passes left me smoother than silk - what a shave!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    Razor : Razorock SS Wunderbar slant- Mfg 2017> excellent upper mid range, light touch with steep approach usually rewards me with some stellar shaves. The machining of this Stainless steel head for accuracy is amazing IMO. Good QC on this razor also.
    Blade : Gillette 7oClock SP- sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap : Italian barber Amici, nice grapefruit scent with excellent lather qualities.(Amici discontinued)
    Brush : Yaqi Orbital ring 24mm boar, excellent lather generator, soft spit end bristle hairs, nice scrubber + great painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Italian barber (Razorock) Amici with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless)
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my RR Wunderbar slant with a Gillette 7oClock blade.
