    Jayaruh 289 - Hampshire Wool Fat - 3D Rocnel SE-P by Roger Quintero - Voskod #1 - Electrif's BayRum V2 - Aloe Vera Gel
    The original Rocnel SE- P I have weighs in at 137g and has always given me great shaves. This reinterpreted Rocnel SE- P by Roger weighs 14g. Because of the light weight and shorter handle, requires a bit of extra pressure but actually gave a similar result I get from the original.
    The HWF is superb and easily transferred as it's soft enough to press into my new bowl.

    Right now, I am liking the King Cobra more because of the Knurled handle. I suspect I will like the metal handle on the King Cobra best since it is a little shorter. So far they have both been great shavers.

    Tuesday morning:

    Neutrogena Men Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 9
    Bundubeard Sanga Symphony SS
    Nivea Sensitive ASB
    Bleu de Chanel AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    My ninth day with this Astra Green blade and it’s still performing like it’s brand new in spite of my tough beard. Jaco’s Sanga Symphony soap is tallow based like his Rooi Afrikaner but the scent is completely different - it’s a beautiful cologne type with soapy notes, the lather is mega thick, rich, and so slick, the blade glide is fantastic, and the skincare is excellent. The Nivea Sensitive balm doesn’t smell that great to me but it’s so moisturizing as well as soothing. The Bleu de Chanel aftershave feels great on my skin and the matching eau de parfum is my number one fragrance - does it ever smell gorgeous. Three glorious passes gave me a kickass BBS shave!

    Stay healthy and safe - we’ll beat this Covid!

    Razor: Razorock 2nd gen Lupo .72- MFG 2021, Excellent razor, mid range, well built and has become one of favorites, carefree for my technique and medium beard type.
    Blade: Gillette Astra SP(4) excellent blade, Sharp & Smooth with good longevity, my standard for comparing DE blades & razors.
    Soap: Razorock The Dead Sea - interesting scent with excellent lather qualities, good protection + good post shave IMO.
    Brush: Yaqi artic sky 24mm knot- excellent lather creator, heavenly like soft tips + backbone for a scrub or painting lather.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock The Dead Sea aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS, BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]excellent shave with my RR 2nd gen Lupo .72 with a Gillette Astra SP blade.(I usually don't get this many BBS shaves in a row.)

    Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!

    Thanks Gary: it has been until the sun did come out! :(

    Chilly though: my neighbor's cat slipped on the frozen tiles of the woodshed roof and I had to rescue the furry thing! :D
