    SOTD : 7th August 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Lider Turkish Boar.
    Face Lather.
    Lather: Derby Shaving Soap bowl.
    Blade: Personna Gem PTFE SS. (D5)
    Razor: Ever Ready 1912. (ENG)

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, 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./Osmanli Lemon Eau De Cologne./ Aloe Vera Gel.

    A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

    The Derby soap bowl provides a wonderful dense slick protective lather, which is equal to the shave stick if not better for it's lather density IMHO...The scent of both Derby & Arko soaps is something i personally don't mind to my sense of smell it's just a 'clean pleasant soap/lemon scent' which like the vast majority of shaving soaps with a few rules to the exception the scent vanishes after i have done my cold water face.

    Another enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 5
    Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    Oh my God, it’s so hot here in Montreal - the temperature is in the 90s so I needed all the menthol chill I could get and believe me, I got tons of it this morning. The Glacial Electric Sheep soap smells delightful - it has the same lovely lemony/citronella/eucalyptus scent as the regular version along with strong menthol fumes, the lather is brilliant - it’s so rich, slick and protective thanks to the mutton tallow formula, the menthol sensation is strong enough to freeze a polar bear’s ass off, and the skincare is A1. The Prep delivered lots of soothing, cooling moisturizing, and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave has such a beautiful old school barbershop scent along with lots of menthol goodness. Three passes left me mega BBS - what a dynamite shave this was!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe![​IMG]

    The Musgo Real Shaving Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #188 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Hinckels Rapide Lather Catcher Razor with a Hinckels Wedge 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...

    Sunday Schick shave, August 7th 2022, I like to try ideas on possibly improving the blades available for the Schick injectors, I'm still longer testing with the Kai protouch blade sniped at one end and stone any burrs results are good when using the Schick injector adjustable M3 to find that sweet spot for the Protouch. The AC 50mm blades are easy for me to shorten to the shorter 40mm approximately length blades that are in the Schick injectors. Excellent shave this morning with no issues with injector wide open.
    Razor : Schick adjustable razor model 3- Mfg 1970-72, one of the best Schick razors made IMO, I like using the regular blades on lower settings 2-3 works well for me, Kai Protouch works well with a little more aggressive settings IMO.
    Blade : Kai Protouch modified(2) sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity. The Kai Protouch helps prevent the blade from digging in, I really enjoy this blade in my shavette also.
    Soap : Yaqi Musketeer, the scent is very nice with a slight lemon scent + excellent lather qualities. Yaqi commissioned Master soap creations to design their recent soaps.
    Brush : Yaqi "ever helpful" 22mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent scrubber + great lather painter.
    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 : witch hazel cleanse+ Yaqi Musketeer AS (very nice scent but fleeting) + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG]excellent shave with my Schick adjustable injector with a modified Kai Protouch blade.(Yesterdays shave was very close with the Yaqi Katana razor Astra SP combo and not much for the blade to take off this morning but it did the job very well!)

    Have some great shaves!

    Hi Friends,

    Here is my Sunday shave (07.08.2022)

    Razor: RazoRock Lupo SS .95 // Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium // Soap: PannaCrema Lavandotto // Brush: RazoRock Barber 24 // Aftershave: Ach.Brito Lavanda

    I received the Lupo SS .95 last week. Today was it´s maiden voyage.

    Man i can tell you…what a great razor!!! As i first saw it with a blade installed, i was a bit worried because it could be too much blade feel for my skin. Normally i am the type of guy which uses mild razors (i LOVE my Feather AS D2).

    As i had lathered up this wonderful smelling soap (which by the way is MUCH better as the PannaCrema soaps yet) it was time. The lather was on my skin on i made the first strokes…Bladefeel? YES!!! Oh yes!!! But in a good way. This thing is smooth and gentle. After the first strokes i felt my skin…great. This thing rocks. So i ended the first pass and was surprised of the amount of stubbles went into the drain.

    This thing is thoroughly.

    Second pass the same…it gives a good audible feedback but with no pressure the shave is a true joy. The angel is quite easy to find and hold.

    After the second pass i was nearly BBS…2 little spots left to touch up in my trouble area where every razor has a problem.

    No third pass needed. BBS!!! Easy achieved.

    Now i rinsed my face first with warm, than with cold water and used my Alum block to see if the shave was really THAT good. It was!!! Just the normal feeling when the skin get´s the Alum block. No stinging, no „burning“…nothing. Let that soak for about 30 seconds and than rinsed again with cold water.

    Time for the Aftershave. Splashed a healthy amount in the palm of my hand and applied it to the face. Have i used a non-alcoholic balm or an alcoholic splash? No sting, no burn, no whatsoever…i am highly impressed. This razor will not be a daily driver, but for a 2 or 3 day beard it is absolutely stunning.


    Take your time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    That is a great razor and I have the Lupo.72 and really enjoy it . I'm a amateur with the USB microscope and the blade exposure(blade feel) is not much at all and captured it on a photo(another members permission to use photo but added some information) that might help show approximately the exposure, it is not lot and comparing to a Gillette Fatboy it would be 2-3 setting but the gap is larger than the Fatboy.(Photo shows 2-2.5/1000 of a inch exposure.)
