Tom's B-3 Badger Brush
J.A. Henckels Rapide
Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS
The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap lathered well with Tom's B-3 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Razor with a Henckels Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Astra Green day 7
Stirling Glacial Strawberry Lemonade SS
Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
Stirling Glacial Strawberry Lemonade AS Splash
My God, I’m frozen solid after using this Glacial Strawberry Lemonade soap and aftershave. The soap has such a beautiful scent which is dominated by the strawberry - in fact I can’t really detect any lemony notes, the lather is so rich, slick, and protective, the menthol sensation is killer cold, and the skincare is A1. The Glacial Unscented balm soothes and moisturizes so well not to mention how cold it as, and the Glacial Strawberry Lemonade aftershave has the same delightful scent as the soap and the freeze it gives is off the charts. Three passes did the job superbly for me - another brilliant BBS shave which I enjoyed so much!
Have a great Sunday - be well and safe

Found some mags of Chicks at Salvation Army for $2 each. It's been probably three years since I've had an injector shave and I'd forgotten how easy and pleasant they are. I'm going to have to scrounge up another E2 now that I have a stock of reliable blades.
My home made brass fitting brush:
Ugly but reliable.
Kinfolks Real Red Point Razor
Rich Man Shaving Red Forge
CBL Fusion Tallow Dragon’s Blood
Avon Wild Country
All the Riga attention and the straight razor acquisition thread brought mine out today. It swiftly brought 4 days of stubble to an end.
Hot water preparation
Argan Oil PSO
Savile Row 3824 Silvertip Badger
Castle Forbes 1445 Shaving Cream
Old Spice After Shave
Happy shaving - Karl
