    A magnificent shave with a beautifully-scented soap which has a super menthol punch. As I wrote in my review, Ginger's Garden Ice Mint is fantastic, and I cannot say enough good things about it. I also cannot stop loving the Svoboda aftershave balsam! ;):biggrin:

    Finally got my replated new razor head in :).

    Hot shower
    Hair conditioner preshave
    Godrej Rich Lather
    Vulfix 404
    CoonCat Custom New (made with custom acrylic leftover)
    Voskhod (1)

    This blade and razor combo has always provided the smoothest shaves I have ever had. Don't feel any tugging... not even the hairs cutting you can hear it slightly however that is muffled but the mounds of lather and smoothness of this amazing blade :).

    My whiskers are all ...

    Haha ok. Well I will take a bad photo later :). No set up or anything fancy probably just on my desk :). It matches my brush and Merkur (which I cant get a good shave with for the life of me)
