    Pre-shave: Van Der Hagen Shave Butter
    Lather: Hendrix Classics & Co White Star "Southern Comfort"
    Brush: Jayaruh 347 Boar
    Razor: Enders Speed with injector adapter from HC&C/Ian Ligocki (Last Shadow) collaboration
    Blade: Supply Black Label injector (1)
    Post-shave: Omega Alum Stick and HC&C White Star balm


    Today I had my first try with an Enders Speed razor using the injector blade adapter made by Ian Ligocki aka 'Last Shadow'. It worked brilliantly! It uses magnets to hold the blade in place and fits the razor perfectly. It made for a very efficient and enjoyable shave. I enjoyed it so much that I can't wait to use it again.

    Also new in this shave are HC&C's White Star products which are their budget-friendly line. They cut corners on packaging and presentation but certainly not on quality. The soap is different from their Top Shelf base but is every bit as good from what I'm able to tell. It's $5.25 for 3 ounces which is a crazy good price. The Southern Comfort fragrance is pleasant. I was even more pleased with the balm. I got the unscented version so I could add the fragrance myself. I mixed up a couple of little pots, one of Havana Breeze and the other Barbershop. The feel of it is silky smooth but not greasy and a little bit goes a long way. The 4-ounce tub is only $8.50 so again, a bargain.

    I had a spectacular BBS shave. 9.8/10 with points taken for a bit of self-imposed, ham-fisted irritation. I hope you have a great day!

    I've had nothing but positive experiences with their products. Had I not won a tub of their soap in a giveaway I may not have ever tried them so I'm glad I did.

    SOTD : 26th February 2022.


    Shaving Recipe For today.

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

    Cold wet flannel to my face & head.
    Simple Pure Bar Soap.
    Brush: Chinese Unbranded horsehair.
    Face & Head Lather.
    Lather: Chinese Cologne Shaving Soap.
    Blade: Parker/Personna PTFE SS.(D1)
    Razor: Parker InjRzr. (Settings) 3-wtg. 4- xtg/atg.+pick ups.

    Cold water Face & Head wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face & Head Rinse. /Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic. /Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.


    Face & Head Shave,

    A new shave set up to start the weekend....Maiden face and head shave with the Parker InjRzr using the blade that was pre-loaded in the razor.

    My recent introduction to injector razors has helped to further my passion for this traditional wet shaving hobby of mine...Starting off setting 3 for the wtg pass then dialling it up to setting 4 for the combined xtg/atg + pick up passes.

    I really like the look and feel of the razor it's mild-mid aggression but efficient enough to mow down my stubble feeling very comfortable with no blade tugging. As with all parker razor's the audio feed back tells you when you have the correct shaving angle.. After the pick up pass both my face & head were smooth with no nicks or irritation.

    An enjoyable close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report.

    Another wonderful addition to my Parker razor collection... I look forward to using it in my future shaves..."It's now official" my SE & Injector razor's are my favourite razors for head shaving....Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

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

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

    Pharoah's Dreamsicle
    Bunny B-400 by Tom
    The Single Edge SE

    The Pharoah's Dreamsicle Shave Soap lathered well with the Bunny B-400 Brush by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with The Single Edge SE Razor with a Supply Black Label Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pharoah's Dreamsicle AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Oumo 26mm Lotus Manchuria SHD Badger
    Fine American Blend Shaving Soap & Aftershave

    Saturday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/7 AM day 11
    Bundubeard Cool as a Cucumber X 3 SS
    Prep ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    A better name for this soap would be “Frigid as the Arctic” because the menthol sensation is so intense that it rivals any of the Stirling Glacial soaps. The scent is very nice - along with the cucumber there’s a strong peppermint note which I enjoy very much, my Yaqi beauty whipped up terrific lather, the menthol hit me like a ton of bricks, and the skincare was so soothing - my man Jaco is another South African soap genius. Needless to say the Prep felt so wonderful, and the Snake Bite aftershave froze the crap out of me. Another splendid BBS shave!

    Have a great weekend - be well and safe!

    Price-wise, they appear to be alongside that of Bill Neumann(Wm. Neumann&Co.). At BN, 4 oz. of soap goes for $18.00, whereas at HC&C, an extra oz. is 3 more dollars. I'm delighted to see that there is no clove action in HC&C's Bay Rum. More research to go. :).
