    Finally got to break in the MdC. This is a great smelling and great performing soap. I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger. Paired it with the EJ DE89 JR 191, and Lavander pour Homme from Fine. Decided to use bergamot lavender soap and shampoo bars from Stirling. [​IMG]

    Razor: Gillette Fatboy E4- MFG 1959 4th qtr , excellent razor, l enjoy this a little more than the Gillette slim which is a also a good adjustable. The fatboy seems smoother because of the larger top cap possibly.
    Blade: Gillette silver blue(2) excellent blade, Sharp & smoooth , top tier IMO.
    Soap: Cyril R Salter Sandal wood, nice scent with good lather qualities at a reasonable price.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm tuxedo knot with black marble handle-great lather generator, cloud like soft tips + nice gentle scrub and lather painter.
    Preshave: 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: Ogallala Bayrum & sandal wood [​IMG] + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =[​IMG]excellent shave with my Gillette Fatboy + GSB blade.

    ***EDIT - 2-pass + clean up pass. Excellent result. A very minor weeper cut that was totally my fault for not keeping the blade moving and resting it on my skin for a split second. The styptic pencil sealed that up neatly.

    This shaving set just feels like I'm a billionaire shaving. "Sir, your shave is ready". "Thank you Jeeves."

    Razor - english valet razor
    Blade - modified se blade
    Brush - cut down omega 48
    Soap - C&E Maraccan Myrrh
    Post - Lavender witch hazel
    A/S - C&E maraccan myrrh balm

    Just an awesome shave. I hated this brush do to the stiffness and loft height, so i cut it down and its more manageable to me. The stiffness is still there but soaking in hot water for about 20 mins softens it up some. I used all my hard pucks like shave sticks.. i rub it on my face instead of bowl lathering and it works awesome. Better results for me vs bowl latering.

    Schick Canadian Type E3 injector, vintage schick platinum plus blade, shave 3
    [​IMG]

    Blade is a 1990 NOS from a 7 blade key in an unopened box. I switched in a good blade after the last shave since it turned out that blade was a dud. Much better shave and with this shave was able to figure out finally that a Canadian Type E3 is a different shaver than a Canadian marked G1. What was suprising is the Canadian Type G is a closer and smoother shaver than this razor. End result BBS finish achieved.

    SOTD : 31st January 2021.

    Shaving Recipe For the day.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Lemon ~ Flower Transparent Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Chinese Unbranded Silvertip Fibre.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather: The body Shop ~ Maca root & Aloe shaving cream.
    Blade: Derby Premium. (2)
    Razor: Mühle r89.

    Post:
    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) peppermint lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Giorgio Beverly Hills ~ Ocean Dream ASL./Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

    Greetings,
    I've mentioned before if i had to have only one DE Razor the Muhle R89 would be a very strong contender up until i added the Parker 55SL Semi-Slant razor to my humble collection which is now on equal par to my beloved Muhle r89.. I will always have a soft spot for the Muhle r89 & Merkur 34c as both razors helped me to develop my technique and gain my shaving confidence, for that reason alone i will never part with either razor.

    A relaxing 3 pass + pick ups Close comfortable Sunday morning shave with no errors to report...Finishing the last shave of the month off with a small dollop of Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

    My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
