    Nothing shaves like a Shake Sharp, Dave! It’s the one safety razor where one would have to work at nicking themself! Happy New Year to you and yours!

    Today’s shave featured the Rigarazor 7/8. Sergej, a Latvian razorsmith, and proprietor of Rigarazor, builds superb shaving tools. The razor arrived with a beautiful edge about a year ago. After two great shaves, this poor Parkinson’s afflicted boob dropped it and chipped the edge right in the middle of the blade. Thanks to great direction from my son, Ben, and the wonderful steel Sergej built the blade from, I restored the edge. My two and a half pass mug shave this morning was exemplary, leaving yours truly’s face and neck “smooth as a peach” to quote my Swedish shave brother, Hans.

    The noggin shave finish closed out this plague-ridden year. I was able to obtain this 1930s vintage NOS Le Coq cagehead safety razor several years ago from a French shave brother, Jean, with a huge Le Coq/L’Essor collection. I traded an immaculate cased 1908 Gillette Single Ring for it. Many friends since have told me that Jean got the better deal. That’s fine with me. Jean has since traded a lovely Famex straight for a Genco 35. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! We’re both happy. The two pass ATG dome shave went swimmingly, leaving your happy narrator velveteen smooth from the shoulders up!

    RAZOR: Rigarazor 7/8 (Mug), Le Coq Cagehead (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather DE (Dome)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a heavy scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Alpha Shaving T-400 with 24mm Hybrid Knot Ferrule (Mug) and MrEE Monster Tuxedo Synth (Dome)
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Lilac Vegetal Splash.

    Friday morning:

    My final shave of 2021!

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 11
    Reitzer SS
    Fino ASB
    Old Spice AS Splash

    This Reitzer may be a cheap soap but it’s fantastic. It’s glycerine based and it likes to be bloomed so the lather works up so easily, it becomes so rich, slick, as well as protective, and the skincare is excellent. The scent of this soap is so old school and barbershoppy. The Fino balm is unscented, it gives such a soothing and moisturizing feeling, and the Old Spice aftershave went on with a bit of a sting but then it felt great. This shave was absolutely awesome!

    All the best to you my friends - Happy New Year!

    Last Shave of 2021

    Cold Water Rinse
    START Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    Gillette Fatboy E2
    Nacet Stainless
    Pinaud Clubman AS

    The START Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Fatboy E2 Razor with a Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
