    Hi Friends,

    here is my „before Work“ shave (30.06.2021)

    C261F51F-8EAA-4C2B-9C74-67FDC4D7DAC6.jpeg
    Preshave: menthol Cube // Razor: PILS 104 NE // Blade: Rotbart Extra Dünn // Soap: Calani Oriental Plum // Brush: Nightdiver’s Honeystick // Aftershave: Tüff red

    Not much to say… a nearly perfect shave.

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Greetings
    Thorsten

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    ISKRA Safety Razor
    Personna Super (61)
    CWR
    Lucky Tiger AS

    This was my 61st shave with the Personna Super blade. It will go back in its wrapper for future use. The ISKRA has performed nicely this week. It is a Russian clone of the Schick Platinum from the early 70s.

    The shave: The Williams Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Silver Tip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the ISKRA Safety Razor with a Personna Super Blade (61) gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I could have easily skipped today after the fantastic shave yesterday, but am still dialing in my technique with the OC Hawk. Two passes and a little blade buffing along the jaw line for a fantastic result. Re-opened a small weeper under the nose from the other day, but it really didn't detract from the shave. Thank to @stingraysrock and @IAmTheJody for the Superior 70 and Tet-A-Tet which helped round out the shave. Enjoy your day.

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 3
    Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
    Prep ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Another hot, humid day means another all out menthol bombardment - the Glacial Electric Sheep soap has such a beautiful scent, (to me!) its lather is such a pleasure to work up, the menthol sensation is killer cold, and the mutton tallow formula promotes such perfection in slickness as well as skincare. After a good massage with the Prep the Snake Bite aftershave froze my face to smithereens some more. Am I ever BBS!

    Have a great day - stay healthy and safe!

    File under never say never. Swee-Do/trimmed Feather Super Pro, Clark Improved King/Gem PTFE+twin half Rockwell DE blades.

    The Swee-Do is an easy fit for an injector or trimmed AC blade, yields an excellent shave, a bit mild even with the sharp AC blade.

    The modern Gem blade won't fit under the cap as the proprietary Clark blade did, but it will kinda on top, a fit with not much exposure but lots of gap. A half DE blade will fit under the cap with some fiddling and in the spirit of two is better than one and what's the worst that could happen I used two under the cap plus the Gem on top. This actually worked well enough on my beard and for clean ups after using the Swee-Do on my head.

    Think I'll have a drink, it's five o'clock somewhere.
