    Salaam aleikum wa rahmat Allah al barakatu!

    An Egyptian barbershop type shave for Sunday:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Frank Mini Brush
    Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 12
    Ingram SC
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    This adorable little Frank mini brush is a hell of a great lather maker - it was sent to me as a gift by a friend of mine. The Ingram cream is from Egypt and it’s got the same nice minty/soapy scent as the discontinued UK version as well as the same great lather but it’s more mentholated. The Prep delivered beautifully on the postshave care, and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave gave me lots of additional menthol goodness as well as its lovely old school European scent that I love so much. Three passes got rid of my rough stubble and left me totally BBS!

    Have a good Sunday - be well and safe!

    J.A. Henckels Rapide

    The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #20 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Catcher Razor with a Henckels Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk Cologne. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    It seemed like a while since I’d picked up some Russian steel and this one called out to me. Today’s choice was very satisfying in every way :happy036:

    Normally most Russian razors are very utilitarian in their design which makes this one stand out all the more. Even though it is branded, “Moscow,” my understanding is that the shipyard shown is actually in St. Petersburg. The seller’s offhand speculation was that there was a disgruntled shop foreman who wanted to pay homage to his hometown in support of their ongoing rivalry with Moscow:)

    I see you are enjoying your Yaqi Tile razor, I got my replacement head so I call it V2 because they put out a much better QC machined head. I find mine mild and my testing on this razor head are indicating neutral blade exposure, but still enjoying the shave & end results regardless. Next week will do 2 shaves with it and the blades I will use are the Astra SP and the Kai SS extra wide blade for a little more blade feel. I bought the cavern lake brush also(still in the mail) and it sure looks good in your photo. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice post shower shave with "The Monster"...WCS 175 ss handle and Yaqi king clone head. Head courtesy of @IAmTheJody .
    Looks intimidating, but it's actually quite a mild shaver.
    Viking Revolution peppermint eucalyptus provided a great slick lather, with that cool memo feel I love. [​IMG]
