    Superior 70

    To celebrate 10 yrs of single edge shaving, I grabbed the same gear I used on July 1, 2011. I no longer have the brush so I used my mixed knot Semogue. There was no need for the alum as today was a fantastic 2 pass shave with a little blade buffing along the jaw line. Finished with some Superior 70 kicked up with TSD M-Bomb. Enjoy your day.

    My grandfather used to complain about getting old. Crap just happens after seven decades of walking this planet. After a two month absence from this forum in the hands of rehab pros, I’ve finally got the old carcass working again. I’ve needed to adapt my shaving routine a bit, but I’m back in the saddle. The question’s out as to whether I’ll be able to use my dominant left hand for straight shaving for a while, but I managed a one handed straight shave with my non-dominant right hand. The mug shave was acceptable with only two small nicks on my left side where I used to shave with my left hand. The dome shave was also a bit bumpy. The LeCoq Cagehead cleared away the dome stubble, but did take a great deal more focus to use my right hand. In any case It’s great to be back and looking forward to improving my shaves day by day again.

    RAZOR: Riga Razor 7/8 (Mug), LeCoq Cagehead (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather DE
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE Aluminum Handled Monster Tuxedo Synth
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Osage Rub.

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Cella Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    AutoStrop A2 Safety Razor
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lucky Tiger AS

    The Cella Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Silver Tip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A2 Safety Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Happy Canada Day!

    Here’s my shave report:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
    Master Soap Creations Cherry Freeze SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    There’s definitely a difference between the glycerine version of Cherry Freeze and the tallow one - the scent of the glycerine version is nice but somehow I prefer the tallow version’s scent. The lather of this one is not as slick as what you’d get from the tallow one but then again no glycerine soap can give you that kind of slickness. The skincare is pretty good, I must say and the menthol sensation is good. The Prep and the Aqua Velva aftershave were a great way to finish off. Today’s shave was excellent!

    Be well and safe!
