    Shave mug shave
    Brush: Razor Emporium best badger
    Razor: 1967 Gillette Super Speed black handle
    Blade: Gillette 365
    Soap: vintage Pinaud Lilac Vegetal? In wood mug
    Aftershave: Pinaud Lilac Vegetal modern

    The soap was able to produce good lather; although I think this soap would work better with a Brush with a smaller loft. Perhaps one of my boar brushes or even one of my smaller synthetic ones. IMG_3365.jpeg

    Second shave with this razor. Not the factory edge I want. I will be taking it to the stones, hopefully, for a better edge. I had a decent 2 pass shave, that left me BBS, but it was a little tuggy on the first pass. Extra stropping helped, but not enough.

    Razor- RigaRazor 15/16th. Latvia
    Brush- RazoRock 400, with a High Mountain Badger knot.
    Soap- ARKO
    Aftershave- Florida Water

    Razor : Yaqi Mellon 316SS 2nd generation razor head with the tear drop 316L (old cannon looking)polished handle- Mfg 2023>, mid range, well made with accurate machining and great polished finish. The audio feedback this morning was nice (sounded like a sizzling noise of whiskers standing no chance[​IMG]). There is no blade tab overhang to worry about and the shave was mostly carefree with some attention needed in sensitive areas.
    Blade : Gillette silver blue (5)- sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap : Razorock Emperor, sharp scent 5-6/10 with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Robin" boar bristle. Excellent lather generator, soft split end boar bristle tips, great splay scrubber + great lather 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 : Razorock Emperor splash with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)2 template 10.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Yaqi Mellon 316L SS head with a GSB blade.

    Prep: Hot towel
    Razor: Weber ARC
    Blade: Polsilver (Lodz) 1
    Brush: Rooney Heritage 2XL Jade
    Soap: Gentleman’s Nod: Ernest ( C4 )
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..
    Fragrance: Tabac Vert

    a truly wonderful shave.. the 'Nod' really is an 'elite' level soap, and the Lodz Pollie gives such a smooth shave.. it really is a shame that it can no longer be found, and wIth the demise of the Polsilver S.I, my stash of both will hopefully keep me going for a few years....

    The Arko Shave Stick lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Kampfe Brothers/Star Lather Catcher and a Star Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Clubman Pinaud Lilac Vegetal After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
