    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger
    AutoStrop A1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    Essence by Tedelus
    Feather Pro Guard blade (4)
    Dscosmetics synthetic brush
    Arko shave soap
    Stetson cologne

    I had to hunt the Arko up. It took a while but I finally found it and pulled it from the back of the cabinet. I can tolerate Arko. It lathers great but the scent is just a turn off for me.

    Another very nice Essence shave this morning. Three passes on the neck and two on the cheeks. The alum gave very little feed back this morning.

    I think I'm going to take the training wheels off and load a Feather Professional blade in the morning.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.

    Vib'Raz/Kai vs Shake Sharp/twin BIC/MDC. Not expecting a "winner", the Shake Sharp was not embarrassed by the Vib'Raz smoothness, nor the Vib'Raz by the Shake Sharp's efficiency. [​IMG]

    Hi Friends,

    here my today’s shave.

    Preshave: menthol Cube // Razor: GEM G-Bar // Blade: GEM // Soap: Mike’s Natural Soaps Barber Shop // Brush: Jayaruh #421 Synthetic // Aftershave: Fine American Blend

    Good shave. Haven’t used the GEM for a loooong time, so finding the correct angle took a few strokes. After dialing in the correct angle the shave went well. The soap smells outstanding and the lather the soap produces is absolutely top notch.

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    1941 Aristocrat, Bic Chrome Platinum blade, shave 1

    Been awhile since I've been regularly shaving because of a torn bicep, Decided to take out this recently restored 41 Aristocrat for a spin. This razor I think is the second best of the American made Aristocrat razors, the 1st being the 46 - 48 Aristocrat. End result BBS finish.

    Razor - Merkur Futur
    Blade - [​IMG]*6th Shave
    Razor Stand by RV Shaving
    Shave Brush - Omega Hi-Brush 20mm Synthetic (Model# 46745 – 0146745)
    Brush Stand by Desire Metal Works
    Preshave Soap - PAA Cube with Dock
    Shave Soap - Country Club for Men *Woodly Spice scent (Custom created scent)
    Aftershave - Country Club for Men *Woodly Spice scent (Custom created scent)
    Post-Shave Balm - Advanced Clinicals Anti-aging Hyaluronic Acid Cream
    Deodorant - HeartJCreations *Spiced Woods (Custom created scent by Country Club for Men)
    Fragrance - Creed Spice & Wood

    I went with the PAA preshave cube instead of oil this time around. I think they are both excellent pre-shave methods. Sometimes I prefer one over the other just to switch things up. I wanted to go light on the usage of the discontinued Country Club for Men soap because it's literally irreplaceable and the pre-shave soap allows me to go with a very light soap load and I can build a great lather with the pre-shave soap and still get the smell from the soap. It works well to help preserve a rare soap.

    SOTD : 5th August 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Cien Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Brown Synthetic. (Faux Horse)
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather : The Body Shop Maca Root Shave Cream.
    Blade: Chinese Gillette Super Blue. (D4)
    Razor: Pearl SBF-11 TTO.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.+3 menthol crystals mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./David Beckham Instinct ASL./Nivea men Sensitive PSB.


    Early morning shave,

    Last outing of the Chinese Gillette Super Blue blade which paired together with the Pearl razor wonderfully throughout the week with no issues. I look forward to adding the Chinese Gillette Super Blue to my blade rotation in future shaves.
    It's been a while since i last used the always reliable body shop Maca root shaving cream the one i used this morning which I've had for a few years but it's still perfectly ok to use it's slightly dis-coloured but hasn't have any adverse affect on the lather or made my face look like a baboon's arse when applying the lather to my face....It's fragrance doesn't get top marks, but it's slickness and performance & post shave feel are amazing good....As always opinions are very subjective YMMV.

    A Enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea men Sensitive PSB.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
