    Looks like you picked up a Yaqi Romulus, I noticed you mentioned a Feather Super pro. How did it shave mild, mid or aggressive range with a super pro?

    The Cella Shave Soap lathered well with the Red and Black Badger Brush by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm.

    Sunday morning - my last shave for the year:

    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Derby day 7
    Rondavel Wild Dagga SS
    Proraso Blue ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash

    A few years ago I received this Rondavel soap from South Africa and it’s actually nice. Before I lathered up I washed my face with it, the scent is outdoorsy and pleasant, it lathers very well although it’s not too slick, and it has fairly decent postshave care. The Proraso Blue balm gave me great moisturizing and soothing while the Aqua Velva went on with a delightful chilly punch. All in all a super duper three pass BBS shave to close out 2023!

    I wish you beautiful people a healthy and happy New Year![​IMG]
