    The Hawk delivered another very fine shave. I did 3-passes just because it was so nice! WTG, ATG, XTG with minor cleanup. Left me BBS & smelling nice.

    Showered and bloomed the soap while warming the lather bowl & Simpson Commodore brush

    Pre-shave cream was Proraso Blue (nice and cool)
    Soap continues to be the MWF. Today I added a spoon of TOBS "Rose" cream
    Razor is the Hawk v3 standard plate with a Feather Professional blade (3)
    Thayers toner after shave & a dab of Geo F Trumper skin food "Sandalwood"

    The Rose cream took over much of the scent and was a nice blend with the MWF. Tons of rich cream for my 3-pass shave. The Rose scent is VERY nice! Cold water temper of the razor after rinsing it off. Cool water rinse of face between applications of cream to the face. Very pleasant shaving with the Hawk. No cuts, nicks, or weepers. Alum bar raised minimal feedback. Very pleasant! Thayers feels nice on my face as does the Skin Food.

    Tomorrow I am trying the open comb base plate with a fresh Feather ProGuard blade.

    The last shave was with perhaps my best shaving razor. This one with my best looking one. Near wedges are always a challenge for me. Sometimes very smooth and sometimes they leave stubble behind. Today was a bit of both. But the end result was face rubbing worthy :happy036:

    Romera Wengue Chubby Manchurian Badger

    Happy shaving - Karl

    Wednesday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/new Wilkinson Sword
    MSC Vintage Spice SS
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

    For those of you who love the scent of the discontinued Shulton Old Spice soap and aftershave this Vintage Spice is a perfect substitute and it’s an EXACT copy. This soap is so precious and so special to me because I’m a Shulton Old Spice lover from the first time I ever used it. The soap is tallow based so you’re guaranteed to get magnificent lather, the scent is so delightful, and it’s so skin friendly. The CutiBase moisturizer is so soothing, and the Vintage Spice aftershave is witch hazel based so there’s no burning or stinging, it has the same gorgeous scent as the soap, and it has great staying power. Another super duper easy peasy three pass BBS shave which I enjoyed so much - thanks so much Fernando for these two treasures!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with Bunny B-400 Badger Brush by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Tech Slant Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Mitchell's Wool Fat Wednesday. Blended with a spoon of TOBS Almond. Great thick lather!

    Hawk v3 OC plate with a fresh ProGuard blade.

    I rode the cap and got a nice shave with this blade. I did have to work a little bit harder to get close so, the alum bar did raise a little feedback. No cuts, nicks, or weepers.
