    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #217
    Custom Wood Handle Enders Speed Shaver
    Enders Speed Blade
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #217 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Custom Wood Handle Enders Speed Shaver with an Enders Speed Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 9
    Master Soap Creations Frosted Spearmint SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Frosted Spearmint AS Splash

    What made this shave a Grand Freeze was the Frosted Spearmint aftershave because although the matching soap is also well mentholated it’s nowhere near the aftershave in terms of menthol power. The scent of this soap and aftershave is gorgeous, the soap lathers like a bomb, and as I said - it’s got a very menthol sensation as well as soothing, moisturizing, comfortable postshave care. The Prep and the matching aftershave felt so heavenly. I’m really loving these Schick blades - this was my ninth day using this one and it helped give me a perfect BBS shave!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!

    Razor: Gem Micromatic (MMOC)-1st gen(buttonless) 1930-32,2nd gen (Button shims) 1933-41, excellent mid range> I like to use this razor when # of shaves on a blade gets higher because it has a little more blade feel. Built to last and looks it, nice weight also. Solid brass.
    1st razor made to "Twist to open" in the world, very advanced for its time period.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE(10) excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap: Italian barber Amici- mild positive citrus scent, excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi Red Zebra 26mm [​IMG] of all my synthetics brushes this one ticks all the boxes for my type of brush, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, just the right amount of backbone for a gentle scrub(no heavy pressure mashing will ruin any brush) + excellent lather painter which combines it to feel of high quality luxury feel when lathering.(it does not get much better for myself)
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Italian barber Amici with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =[​IMG]excellent shave with my MMOC buttonless with a coated blade.

    Have some great shaves!

    Leresche 77 (Kai), Le Coq Caged Head (Treet Plat). Bold experiments to be admired but neither is among my favorite shavers. The Leresche is smooth but very mild (aggressive ones are usually bent), the Le Coq 10/10 in aggression but gets very tuggy on my head.[​IMG]
