Tabac Tuesday's Shave
Cold Water Rinse
Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
Personna GEM SS PTFE
The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready 1924 Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 14
MSC Deep Blue SS
English Leather AS Splash
My first shave of this month and it was a beauty despite the Gillette Platinum blade being so much duller. I actually had to struggle quite a bit during the second and third passes but I still managed to get the job done. Fernando’s Deep Blue is such a lovely soap - it’s tallow based, the scent is an exact copy of Diesel Blue which is a very nice manly fragrance, the lather is so thick, rich, super slick as well as protective, and the skincare is A1. The Fino balm is also from South Africa - it’s unscented, it’s very moisturizing and soothing. The English Leather aftershave has always been a favourite of mine - it smells so old school and classy. Three passes left me smoother than silk!
Happy February to all - be well and safe!

Y'know, I used to do that a long while back, then someone said he was surprised to see a "shower" described-maybe it meant I was the only one doing it...who knows?
I heard the call and the big W&B did the trick. This is really wonderful razor
