    Razors: Heritage Gibbs / Original Gibbs
    Blades: Gillette 7oclock Blues / ming shi
    Brush: ever ready reknotted
    Soap: Fine American Blend
    Post: Medicated witch hazel
    A/S : Brut clone from Dollar General

    So my first shave with the Heritage Gibbs that @gwsmallwood let me borrow and it didnt disappoint. I did a side by side shave with OG and its close. In my head, i can tell which is which. To me there is something different about the the heritage. More shaves are required and im more than happy to do so!

    The soap is really good and Im diggin it. The aftershave is pretty close to the original brut and it does last a couple of hours with a powdery scent at the end which is really nice.

    A relaxing Sunday morning shave..

    I love the simple Gillette tech design they are such mild smooth efficient shavers especially the earlier models it would be hard for me to choose a favourite because each one that i own is a joy to shave with...However, i find the 40's & 50's models are slightly more assertive with the right blade choice.

    An enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups comfortable silky smooth shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 14
    Master Soap Creations Frosted Lavender SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Citrus Melody AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    What a cracking good shave this was and what a monstrous menthol sensation I had from Fernando’s Frosted Lavender soap and his Citrus Melody aftershave. A special thanks to my beautiful Yaqi Barber Pole for whipping up such great lather and to my 1950s Super Speed with this faithful Astra Green blade for helping me to get so BBS and also to the Prep for its wonderful postshave care!

    Have a nice Sunday - be healthy and safe!

    The Proraso Red Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #277 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Kampfe Brothers/Star Lather Catcher with a Star Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    49 Milord v 47 Aristo for the beard, H&SN075-Lupo head shave, BICs. Although I can tell the difference beween the Milord and Artisto in audible feedback and feel the difference in performance is not huge, the Aristo a bit smoother ATG on my chin perhaps. It will go back to Dave tomorrow. I like it a lot, one of the easiest razors with which to get an excellent shave I've used.

    The Lupo cap on the H&S increases exposure quite a bit but it's still a very easy shaver. A very few pickups with the much more aggressive (in my setting) Enders Speed.
