    NDC replated FrankenTech / RE repro handle
    Gillette Wilkinson Sword blade !4x!
    Zenith olivewood short-handle unbleached boar :taunt002:
    Fine’s 3x milled Snake Bite shave soap
    Snake Bite / Pitralon Pure aftershave splashup

    Two passes, bbs-was. A most remarkable thing to report is how wowed I was after using the same blade four shaves! I have previously only been able to do so with Med preps. Thanks to Stan (@Chappy_Stan) for the share. Much appreciated :) It’s in the bank now - not willing to risk irritation just to stretch the edge.

    The Zenith brush is one of my current faves. It makes me smile :D :D It’s really good looking, ergonomically pleasing in hand, and the knot is a joy to use.

    Wondering if anyone else here enjoys Pitralon aftershaves. I find the Pitralon Pure reminds me of Pinaud Clubman. It’s similarly scented, perhaps a bit more complex?

    Have a great weekend!

    Prep: Hot towel
    Razor: Weber ARC
    Blade: Astra SP
    Brush: Simpsons Duke 3 Best
    Soap: a new/ modified base sample soap from Alfredo..
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..

    So, Alfredo was kind enough to send me a sample of his new soap base, designed to handle hard water problems.. well, he has succeeded.. a faultless shave was had, with top notch performance in all departments.. so good in fact, that I was doing extra passes just for the enjoyment of it... Kudos to Alfredo for this new offering.
    I can't wait to get my hands on a full soap..

    Hi Friends,

    Here my Sunday Shave (30.07.2023)

    Razor: PILS 104 NE // Blade: KAI // Soap: MSC Frosted Lavender // Brush: Nightdiver´s Honeystick // Aftershave: Ach.Brito Lavanda // Post: Nivea Skin and Beardbalm

    I hope you all are doing alright. The shave was a joyful, calming 3 pass shave. The soap has a good amount of Menthol and the Lavender shines through perfectly. A nice herbal Lavender. Good lather but i prefer Synthetic brushes where i ALWAYS get perfect lather. The Lavenda Aftershave smells heavenly and minutes after that i applied the Nivea balm which is maybe THE best balm i have in my den,

    Take your time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Lather Catcher Sunday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    ARKO Shaving Cream
    Semogue Excelsior 1305 Boar
    Superior Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Clubman Pinaud After Shave

    The ARKO Shaving Cream lathered well with the Semogue Excelsior 1305 Boar brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher Razor and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Clubman Pinaud After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday morning with some new stuff:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 7
    Captain Nemo Explosion de Cedrat SS
    Prep ASB
    Captain Nemo Kaffir Limon AS Toner
    Pe Re Ja Lemon Cologne

    Yesterday I received a gigantic package from Captain Nemo Shaving Supplies in Kolkata, India and this Explosion de Cedrat soap and Kaffir Limon were two of the items. The soap has a beautiful lemony scent, it’s vegan based like all of Abir’s soaps, it’s a pleasure to lather up, I was very pleasantly surprised to feel a nice menthol sensation, and the skincare is excellent. The Prep delivered so generously on the postshave care, and the Kaffir Limon aftershave toner not only smells great, it’s also quite cooling. Last but not least the Pe Re Ja cologne from Turkey smells so lemony and beautiful not to mention how refreshing it is. Three passes gave me a dynamite BBS shave that was fit for a king. Thanks so much Abir for your wonderful products and awesome service!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and stay safe![​IMG]
