    Razor : Yaqi TFC adjustable: excellent all range shaving, great design that takes regular blades, 2 pc razor and installing blade is easy, finish is excellent and very affordable IMO. I'm glade I bought this model, designed similar to the Gibbs razor of the 1930's but takes Gillette standard blades. A joy to use!
    Blade : Gillette silver blue (3) sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap : Razorock XXX Fresco- similar to the XXX scent with a mild dose of menthol, excellent lather qualities. Very nice soap. Great post shave face feel.
    Brush : Yaqi barber pole,24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, great scrubber, great lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG 3 + ATG 3 + pickups 3.5 settings.
    Post shave : Witch hazel face cleanse + Razorock XXX Fresco aftershave, slight burn and then some cooling. [​IMG] nice clean unique scent of regular XXX.
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG]excellent shave with my Yaqi TFC with a GSB blade.(does not get much better!)

    Have some great shaves!

    Friday's Shave


    Cold Water Rinse
    Pharoah's Dreamsicle
    Jayaruh #30
    Gillette Double Ring 1905
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Pharoah's Dreamsicle AS

    We spent the night in Pigeon Forge with son David's family. So this shave is an away shave.

    The Pharoah's Dreamsicle Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #30 badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with Gillette Double Ring Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pharoah's Dreamsicle AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Friday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 10
    Bundubeard Kameelperd’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash
    Brut Deodorant Spray
    Brut EdT

    Wow, this Kameelperd puck was sent to me almost four years ago and it’s still going strong - it’s a 250 gram puck with a glycerine base, a most delightful coffee/peppermint scent, tons of thick, rich, mega slick lather, an INTENSE menthol sensation which compares to any of the Stirling Glacials, and very good skincare. The Prep and the Rubby Dubby Doo as I affectionately call the Osage Rub aftershave completed the job perfectly. I’m really enjoying the beautiful old school scent of the Brut. Three passes gave me a wing dinger of a BBS shave!

    Enjoy your weekend - be well and safe!

    Hi Friends,

    Here is my Wednesday Shave (27.07.2022)

    Razor: Rockwell 6S // Blade: Gillette Wilkinson India // Soap: SV Tundra Artica // Brush: Olivewood with Black Synthetic Fibre // Aftershave: Pitralon Classic

    Fantastic…Razor, Blade, Soap, Brush and Aftershave worked so very well together. This Aftershave in combination with this soap is a match made in heaven. It was a pure joy.

    Enjoy your shaves, take your time and stay safe and healthy.

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...It's been a while since i last added the fine fresh vetiver soap to my soap rotation ..The soap doesn't have a strong scent, which isn't a big issue for me personally, but it's lathering performance & post shave feel are wonderful.

    Finishing to the shave off with a few small squirts of Milton Lloyd The Man EdT to the chest & pulse points.
