    A splendid Sunday: it even started to drizzle!

    The Astra proved to be excellent also on this heavy razor and slipped on the lather whose fragrance seems to improve every time.

    The scratch of the blade was clearly felt in the misty silence ...

    Razor: Wilkinson sword tto
    Blade: super max blue diamond (7)

    Nice change-up. I like macro shots. I'm not very good at them, but you have it down. Very cool.

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The GZD Berber Stick Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Badger Brush. I did two passes and a cleanup with the Superior Lather Catcher razor with a Vintage Gem Cutlery SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Family Dollar Old Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Razor - Gillette Red Tip Superspeed circa 1955-1960 (Re-plated in Satin-Nickel Finish and re-painted tip in Radiant Red color by Razor Emporium.)
    Blade - [​IMG] *6th shave
    Shave Brush - Ever-Ready 1960's vintage (Polished and re-knotted with a synthetic 26mm Ubersoft II knot from Envyshave by Razor Emporium.)
    Shave Stand by by Desire Metal Works
    Suds - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Original" Cream (Made in India) *I dried it out for months into a hard soap.
    Aftershave - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"
    Deodorant - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"
    Fragrance - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"

    Guess I have to put this one in the December thread too. :)

    ***EDIT - 2 pass + clean up. I got perhaps the best shave from the Red Tip ever. The key seems to be that the blade needs a bit of use before it yields a great shave. The aggression of the Red Tip tends to leave a bit of irritation, but the smooth BiC CP seems to mostly tame it. By the 5th/6th shave it really shines. BBS. Zero irritation. Super high quality result.

    Hi Friends,

    it's the first shave in December:)

    Razor: Merkur Progress
    Blade: Sputnik
    Soap: Boellis Panama Daytona
    Brush: RazoRock Barber 24mm
    Aftershave: 4711 Portugal Skin Milk

    Great shave.

    It is the very first time, i've used a product from Boellis Panama. Heared a lot of good things about their products. Yesterday this Soap came in.

    It's a fruity, orange like scent with light undertones of wood. The description says Patchouli, but i am not able to detect this.

    The lather was very easy to build and it was stable, had plenty of cushion and the bathroom was filled with this elegant scent.

    Another product which i haven't used yet, was the Sputnik blade. What a fine Blade this is. Almost as sharp like a Feather, without having this "agressive" sharpness on the first shave. Very smooth and gentle.

    The first pass, with the grain, on setting 3, across the grain on setting 2 and against the grain on setting 1. Very nice. I like this combo so far.

    After the shave, my Alum Block told me, that it has been a good shave. Only the minimum of stinging, just as it should be.

    At last, i used my 4711 Portugal Skin Milk, which complemented the soap very nicely.

    Now we go to the "Christkindel Markt" to get this beautiful atmosphere.

    Have a great time, stay healthy and enjoy your shaves. SotD 01.12.2019 Forum.JPG
