    Started the shave with the Hawk V3, but the blade was trash. Tossed a fresh blade in the LC New and had a close and comfortable 2 pass shave.

    Enjoy your day.

    Nice. I have a brush handle from Steve (Oscar11) in a very similar material. I thought it was one of his handles at first.

    Thanks, this brush is one of my favorites. Rob calls this handle "Pueblo" and he periodically makes variations of it. I think he never makes two exactly alike.

    I also have two brushes by Oscar11 that I like very much. I'll have to use them again soon.

    Another shave, with a great razor. I had a nice 2 pass shave, with BBS results. One weeper, due to a tiny bump on the face.

    Razor- C-MON Special, By Peter J Mitchell.
    Brush- Razorock 400. High Mountain Badger knot. Very nice solid feel to this brush.
    Soap- ARKO
    Aftershave- Shulton Old Spice. Mmmmm Mmmmm Gooood.

    Friday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Shark day 3
    MSC Peppermint Latte SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Peppermint Latte AS Splash
    Lagerfeld Classic EdT

    There’s nothing like the smell of espresso mixed with peppermint - is it ever nice. My dear friend Fernando, may God bless him and grant him good health and lots of success created two treasures when he came out with this soap and aftershave. The soap is tallow based, what a pleasure it is to lather, the scent to me is lovely - the espresso is the dominant note but the peppermint is still detectable, the menthol sensation is really strong, and the skincare is brilliant. The Prep has that nice, medicinal Noxzema like scent that I also love, it’s so soothing, cooling, as well as moisturizing, and the Peppermint Latte aftershave is witch hazel based so there’s no burning or stinging, the scent is as beautiful as the soap, and the menthol sensation can freeze you to Kingdom Come. Three passes did the job for me - am I ever mega BBS!

    Have a good weekend - be well and safe!

    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    The Shannon's Soaps Indigo Oud Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #434 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Wabbit 3D Razor with a Personna Injector 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...
