    This was a good shave. A couple very small weepers on the bottom of my neck from going too fast there. I like the Proraso Red Splash - it is soothing and has a cologne sandalwood scent that compliments the preshave, but does not linger long.

    I was really considering buying the Hawk V3 OC head pieces for use with one of my own handles, but both the cap and plate are out of stock as separate pieces - but they have in stock with one of their handles. I guess these come in sets and they don't want to break up the sets for the head pieces. A bummer. And a lost sale.

    Tet-A-Tet ASB. Just grand stuff! I would really love to know the thought process behind Unilever discontinuing the Tet-A-Tet line when they purchased the company. Was it not a good seller? Was it just a way to wipe out competition? So many questions... lol

    Razor:
    Razorock 2nd Gen Lupo 72- Mfg 2021, excellent mid range, very nice close smooth shave with this GSB. It does not get much better shaving IMO.
    Blade: GSB [​IMG] (3) Excellent blade, Sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity, top DE blade tier in my blade selection.
    Soap: Razorock Lavender, nice masculine scent, excellent lather qualities!
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Cashmere Dandelion synthetic, excellent lather generator, nice scrub + excellent lather painter. Cashmere knots are nice soft and break in nicely for even a better feel IMO.
    Pre shave: Brush was my 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: Razorock King Louis lavender with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my RR Lupo 72 with a GSB blade.

    Vintage Williams Wednesday SOTD

    Okay, okay - not everything is vintage, but the soap, mug, and aftershave are . With a little extra water, the Williams lathers up very nicely. The Ikon X3 / Permasharp paired well today. I’m smooth and smell great for the day.

    Happy Healthy Shaves all.
