    The PSC Caffeinated Shaving Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #199 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Merkur Progress Adjustable Razor and the Nacet Stainless blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    ASRazor shave, Monday, 2024

    Razor : British 2nd Generation Ever-Ready Streamline SE, Mfg 1949-53 mid to upper mid range. well built to last Generations and works well when mastered. Used a shim(RIGS) under the existing modern spline of a modern Gem blade to mock the older blades that had thicker splines, it really smooths out the shave for myself and others. Had a close comfortable shave this morning.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (8) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
    Soap : Cyril R Salter Wild rose cream. This a excellent cream with the scent of roses + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi" Sagrada Familia" 26mm Husky synthetic knot. Excellent lather generator, luxury, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. Hard to beat this brush for beautiful soft face feel that does every thing for a decent lathering.
    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 Amici with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : Dial 10.jpg CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Ever-Ready Streamline razor with a coated Gem blade.

    Razor: Razorock German 37 slant on Maggard’s MR7 handle
    Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (6)
    Soap: Proraso Green
    A/S: Skin Bracer

    I have a complicated relationship with this razor… it’s efficient yet often gives me weepers and leaves less-than-ideally shaved spots, even though it doesn’t appear to be too sensitive to the angle. I need to either spend a couple weeks using nothing else, or just give up…

    I’ve enjoyed the EverReady the past few days. Admittedly, I don’t reach for it very often, but have had very good results these past two shaves.
