Razor: Razorock Lupo .72 2nd Generation, Mfg 2021, Excellent mid range, carefree shave this morning, I just receive good results consistently with this well designed DE razor.
Blade: Gillette 7oClock SP(black), Excellent blade, sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity, very similar to my GSB IMO.
Soap: Razorock XXX, great fresh scent, excellent lather qualities, one of my favorites.
Brush: Yaqi Red Zebra 26mm one of my best buys on a whim, excellent lather generator, nice gentle scrubber, heavenly cloud like soft tips, great lather painter, feels so luxurious to my skin.
Pre shave: Dedicated (Yaqi Cashmere synthetic 24mm) brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera to cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Razorock XXX with witch hazel + a dollop of Neiva balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers = excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 2nd gen with a Gillette 7oClock.
Have some great shaves!
Thank you Gary

*In describing this, he writes about the fun he and his family had fishing, camping, and swimming "down at the river" growing up. I don't know how old Greg is, but these times must have been quite a few years ago.
**-Launched in the 1970's. Reviewers write that they have been wearing this for 40 years.
Beautiful brush! Mind providing information on it?

A very smooth & efficient shave was had in 2 passes and completely drama free. Started on IV and ended on II on the second and final pass. This thing is killer on the ATG pass and is one of the best that I’ve experienced. Maybe 2, perhaps 3 razors in my den can match it but, don’t know if they’re better though. I’m going to let a few days go by and turn this thing loose on 2-3 days growth. Wonderful evening and shaves to all….
