    Hi Friends,

    here my today’s shave (15.12.2021)

    Razor: Karve Brass with C-plate // Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium // Soap: Noble Otter Noir er Vanille // Brush: Jayaruh #421 // Aftershave: D.R. Harris Arlington Aftershave Milk

    A relaxing shave. The Karve had no problems shaving off the whiskers in 3 passes.

    The brush made an extremely good lather.

    After the shave i used my Aftershave Milk which i haven‘t used for years. Feels like silk on the skin and has a very elegant scent. I will use it more often from now on.

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

    I just received mine from The Razor Company today and it smelled great. I am looking forward to trying it out. I won a gift card from Jason at the Razor Company and decided to splurge.

    SOTD : 16th December 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Sea Salt & Fennel Extract 2 in1 Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Lider Turkish Boar.
    Face Lather.
    Lather : Arko Shave stick.
    Blade: Derby Premium. (D2)
    Razor: Merkur 34c.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Arko Comfort AS-Cologne + ASB.


    A Turkish themed shave to finish my shaving week off and last shift at the mill until the 3rd January...However this year my name is on the call out rota during the Christmas week to assist the maintenance squad if any emergency work needs to be carried out but hopefully everything should be hunky-dory and I won't be needed.

    My reacquaintance with the Turkish Derby premium & Usta over the last few weeks has been a pleasant experience and has taught me that you can't reach a honest verdict on a blade/razor after just one shave as i have done in the past....Both the Mühle R89 and Merkur 34C have paired together with the Derby Premium wonderfully throughout the week providing me with smooth acceptable comfortable shaves.
    The humble 'Turkish Delight' Arko shave stick never fails to provide a slick protective lather in a short space of time, love it, or hate it, the performance from this humble shave stick is amazingly good.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report....Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Arko Comfort ASB.

    Another enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

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

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
    47 Gillette Aristocrat
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Humphrey's Witch Hazel
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 47 Gillette Aristocrat Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel and Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Soap Commander Fortitude shave soap.
    Timeless shave bowl.

    Awesome three passer this morning. I'm trying out the Delrin handle on the razor. It dropped the weight by 35% to under an ounce on the razor......light and smooth. The Focus is a fun razor and the Soap Commander is hard to beat.

    Take care everone!

    I see that Barrister&Mann is trying to get fancy like PAA, with its "Amazelnut". I like it though. I don't have it, but the name is what I meant.
