    The Rambler is a superb soap with a beautiful, sweet tobacco scent.. a lovely, smooth shave was had with the Black Ninja on a #3 plate.. I'm actually tempted to say that it narrowly tops the Silver Blue in terms of comfort. yeah, lovely jubbly.

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Rapira
    MSC Frosted Spearmint SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Frosted Spearmint AS Spray
    Versace Dreamer EdT

    Back to my Canadian Tech that I received a few months ago from a very nice gentleman and I found a tuck of Russian Rapiras which I think are very good blades. My brother Fernando’s Frosted Spearmint soap is fantastic - it’s a tallow based treasure with a lovely spearmint scent, great lather that works up so easily, there’s plenty of menthol in it, and the skincare is numero uno. The Prep delivered so well on the moisturizing as well as the soothing, and the Frosted Spearmint aftershave has the same delightful scent as the soap not to mention how frigid it is. I received the Versace Dreamer as a gift from my mom-in-law for my birthday back in May so today was my first time wearing it - I think it smells great. Three passes did me proud - another awesome BBS shave that was such a pleasure!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Humphrey's Witch Hazel

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with Tom's Brush B-3 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Brass TAR by Tom and the Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hi Friends,

    Here my today´s shave (01.02.2023)

    Razor: RazoRock Lupo SS .95 // Blade: Gillette Bleue Extra (7) // Soap: House of Mammoth Mood Indigo // Brush: Shavemac 173 // Aftershave: House of Mammoth Mood Indigo Balm

    What a shave…the Gillette Bleue Extra had it´s 7th shave today. Now, with it´s 7th shave you notice that it is not the same from the beginning. Sharpness and smoothness with and across the grain: No difference Against the grain: slightly different, but never uncomfortable

    Definitely not uncomfortable whatsoever and i am still BBS after 2,5 passes but i think the blade will be done within the next 3 shaves, but hey, if i get 7 (or maybe more) extremely comfortable shaves out of this blade, so what?!

    The soap has a heavenly scent…wow…so mysterious and „dark“, hard to describe but extremely good. Right up my alley. The Balm smells a little bit different but you get the notes from the soap definitely. This balm is one of the best out there for my liking. Goes on well (a little goes a looooong way) and leaves the skin comfy and well cared. Great stuff.

    This is it for now folks.

    Take your time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    A wonderful early morning shave to finish my shaving week off superbly.

    The Merkur 37C /Sunny Supreme Stainless paired together superbly feeling smooth and efficient. I will carry on using my three Slant razors for the rest of the month and beyond trying out two new Subcontinent blades the Statum Platinum Chrome sputtered & Ninja Stainless DE blades which where kindly sent to me by a member of TSR forum (UK) . I look forward to trying both of them out, especially the Statum Platinum Chrome.

    A very comfortable close 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine. ;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen. :cool:
