    Greetings,

    (Proraso Products & slant razor week.) ( Face & Head Shave.)

    A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend....It's been while since i last used the Proraso sandalwood soap, i forgot how much i like this soap it's scent, and the lather that it creates.

    The Treet 7 Days Platinum paired together wonderfully with the Parker 55SL, making a smooth efficient Indian made razor & blade duo.

    A very enjoyable Close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few generous squirts of Oud 24 Hours EDP to the pulse points.

    My face and precious swede are feeling smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    I delayed yesterday's shave so I could celebrate the patent anniversary today with the 'original 1912' made by the GEM Cutlery Co. Affectionately called the Damaskeene or Dammy after the original GEM Damaskeene blades.

    And what better than to use my original Old Spice soap.

    I woke up kissed by a sunbeam; I wish Sophia Bush had done that....
    Either I pull out the 'sunshine' soaps or insist on waiting for the gray to return: spes ultima dea!
    In the polylemma I chose an efficient soap with a... peculiar scent.

    All the cast played their part professionally and I can face the day with virile determination.

    Razor: Rockwell Plate 5
    Blade: Wizamet (?)
    Brush: Saponificio Varesino 2.0 Bamboo
    Soap: I Coloniali
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Nivea Deep
    Fragrance: Amouage Sunshine Man

    Just a wonderful and pleasant shave today. The soap has a nice mango subdued scent with a smokiness. There is also a touch of menthol in it but is not detected in the scent but evident in the lathering feel. Love this soap/cream or whatever you want to call it. Took the Rockwell out for a spin as it hasn't had any love in a while. Plate 5 always gives a close mindless shave for me and I'm glad I traded Alan a brush for this set that he put his high hand polish on. Hope everyone has a stellar day and weekend !!

    Colgate Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #47
    Russian Rocket 5/8
    CWR
    Granddad's Blend AS

    The Colgate Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #47 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Russian Rocket 5/8 gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    Stirling Facial Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 6
    Simply Bee SS
    Proraso Green Crema Pre/Dopo
    Proraso Green AS Splash

    This Simply Bee is simply a fantastic soap - ok, the scent wouldn’t win an Academy Award because it’s just a very mild honeycomb type but it’s still pleasant but the lather and postshave care are brilliant. The Proraso Green pre/after cream works so well as a soothing, cooling balm, and the menthol sensation from the Proraso Green aftershave felt great. Three passes gave me a cracking good shave!

    Have a great weekend - stay healthy and safe!

    Saturday:

    hot shower with Castelbel Citrus & Dark Musk bar soap
    Maggard Sweet Orange PSO
    Maggard MR4 3 passes
    Gillette Spoiler (2)
    Fine Italian Citrus soap face lathered
    Omega boar
    Humphreys citrus WH
    Fine Italian Citrus A/S

    A very fine shave this morning and a good mix of smells start to finish. I hadn't used the Gillette Spoiler since last Saturday as I have more than a few blades in rotation. I can see why this blade is often sought after as it performed flawlessly.

    Have a great weekend fellow shavers!

    Well, it certainly looks like the "Best Shave Kit Pic Contest for 2021" is over. Gentlemen, we have a winner........Let's hear it for Celestino!!!!! :happy096:

    I can't stop looking at it! I think I'll use it as my background on my PC. I'll probably stop posting crummy pics of my pedestrian shave kit. My life has been altered.

    OK, but that is one nicely presented photo. Good going sir!
