    Mastro Livi RWL34, 9/8 Full Hollow, French Point

    Sunday shave has always been a special shave. Not only because I have more time for this, but also because I usually pick one among the finest straight razors of my collection and it usually is a Mastro Livi razor. This one proved to be an absolutely superior razor: it is still keen and very sharp like the day I bought it. Not to mention, shave was pleasurable and perfect.​

    I love the early Greaves! For a razor that's 200 years old it still performs beautifully and the history it has seen is mind blowing. To think Andrew Jackson could have used this razor is awesome! TheTiki Fougere is fastly becoming one of my favorites. Thanks Guy for turning me on to this great SS. :cool:

    FRANKENRAZOR: a razor constructed with parts of two or more different razor types. The razor shown is a very common, if not the most common vintage 'frankenrazor' found in the wild.
    It is an Old type head and base plate with a fat handle tech handle. Theories exist as to why this assembly are the old type handles are prone to cracking, so a new razor was purchased, and handle was swapped out.
    I love the old types. The Astra blades, not so much.[​IMG]

    Hey Friends,

    here is my Shave of the Day:

    Prep: hot shower
    Soap: Jabonman Brisa de Oriente
    Brush: HJM Black Synthetic Fibre
    Razor: Toro Mastiff
    Blade: Lord Platinum
    Aftershave: Myrsol Agua Balsamica


    That was a great shave. The blade is very gentle, without giving me irritations or something like that. Sharp enough to glide through my whiskers like a hot knive through butter. The combination of the Jabonman soap and the Myrsol Aftershave is great. It pairs very nicely together. So, this was my shave. Hope you enjoyed yours too. :)

    Take care and have a great time.

    This one did. I feel bad for my cousin having sent me one and I use it basically in emergencies. It could be worse, but I have no complaints except makes me want to try a 7 Series with some Speick pre-electric :)
