    Simpson T2 Trafalgar synthetic brush
    Thayers Toner & Geo F Trumper Skin Food

    It takes a bit more work to get nice rich lather with this soap but, I got it! Nice lather and scent. 2-pass shave WTG & ATG with minor cleanup. Nice and smooth face!
    No cuts, nicks, or weepers. Alum bar gave minimal feedback. Another great shave!

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #188
    Schick Double Edge Razor
    Schick Super Chromium Blade
    CWR
    Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #188 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick Double Edge Razor with a Schick Super Chromium Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Wilkinson Sword
    Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash

    Calvin Klein Obsession for Men EdT

    The brand new Wilkinson Sword blade was so helpful for today because yesterday I was struggling quite a bit. This Tech is a relatively mild razor but it’s so efficient and it allows me to shave fast if necessary without any issues. The Glacial MITA is a force to be reckoned with because it’s three times more mentholated than the regular version which is also pretty cold, the scent is exactly the same beautiful citrusy/tropical type, the lather is so rich, slick, and protective, the freeze starts right away - every stroke of the razor seems to intensify it, and it has the typical great Stirling skincare. The Prep and the Rubby Dubby Doo were a perfect finish. Three passes resulted in a super duper BBS shave that I enjoyed immensely!

    Have a good day - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Williams Wednesday Shave

    Lather: vintage Williams Mug Soap
    Brush: Ever Ready
    Razor: Henson AL13
    Blade: RK
    After: witch hazel and aloe
    Cold water shave :Animatedfrozensmily:

    My first time using one of the new RK blades in my Henson AL13. The blade is imprinted "Specifically designed for the Henson AL13". The blade is very thin, maybe that's the reason Henson decided to use them, since the razor head bends the blade so much. I had two days growth and my first impression was that this blade was less sharp than others I have used recently. Not dull and tuggy, but less sharp. But I did get a good DFS result in two passes with just a little touch up. The shave was comfortable and my face feels good afterwards. I will see how it does with one day growth tomorrow.
