Double maiden shave with the Proraso Sandalwood Shaving Cream and the Indian Sunny Supreme Stainless blade.
During the Christmas break i had a sort out in my shaving den and picked out various assortments that i have infrequently used in the past some i have yet to try out...Over the next month or even longer, i will be be using a variety of subcontinent DE blades along with an array of new shaving assortments that i got from myself family,& friends as Christmas presents.
Starting with the Sunny supreme stainless a new addition to my growing DE blade collection... Like a lot of the subcontinent DE blades they are not the sharpest of blades but are super smooth which is something i prefer over excessive sharpness in a blade...I was curious to pair the Sunny SS with my FaTip Grande the verdict?...A great razor and blade duo, which in all honesty i wasn't sure if it would have worked but it did wonderfully, feeling comfortably smooth and efficient.
The Proraso Sandalwood Shaving cream provided a wonderful slick protective lather in a short space of time....I enjoy the fragrance of the cream which like the soap sibling isn't a 'In Your Face' scent but lingers during and after the shave.
A close comfortable 2 pass + pick ups new year's day shave to start the year off in style...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Fresh Kick ASB.
My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine.
Stay safe, and have a wonderful new years day ladies & gentlemen.
Hopefully things will get better with the COVID madness...Enough said. Yours-Barry.
happy new year

Happy new year my friends!
Saturday morning’s custom made Grand Freeze:
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 11
MSC Wintergreen SS
Stirling Glacial Wintergreen ASB
MSC Wintergreen AS Splash
Guys, if you’ll notice in this photo the soap and aftershave are unlabelled because they were custom made for me by my dear friend Fernando. His Wintergreen soap is EXACTLY the same type of hyper mentholated tallow based soap as Rod’s Glacial Wintergreen soap with the identical beautiful scent, great lather, and super intense menthol sensation that hits you like a sledgehammer. The Glacial Wintergreen balm is so soothing, moisturizing, and frigid, while Fernando’s Wintergreen aftershave is a witch hazel based menthol atom bomb with a gorgeous scent - exactly like the Glacial Wintergreen one. My first shave of 2022 was so BBS and lots of fun!
Have a great weekend - may this new year bring you all good health, happiness, and wealth!

Quick 2 passer this morning, awesome results, an almost auto-pilot shave for me, with one of my favorite open edge razor shaped objects.
DE SOTD, Jan 1st 2022- the start of the New Year, I'm going to try and stay optimistic this year more if possible.
Razor: American Gillette super speed Rocket X1- Mfg 1952 1st qtr, very nice mild razor, I like using the Kai SS blade in this razor because it slightly wider and gives a little blade feel and works well. Well built and brings back memories of a different simpler time.
Blade: Kai SS(9) excellent blade, sharp and smooth with excellent longevity, 9/1000 thousands inch wider than a standard Astra SP. Great for my mild razors IMO.
Soap: Razorock Irish country side- different mild freshness scent + excellent lather qualities.
Brush: Yaqi 24mm high mountain silver tip, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice scrub, great painter.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
Post shave: Pinaud Clubman with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion + scentless.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = Excellent shave with my Gillette SS Rocket with a Kai blade.
Have some great shaves!
Happy & Healthy New Year Guys & Gals
