    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Tom's Brush B-3 Badger
    Tourqued Slant Razor by Tom
    Nacet Stainless
    Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with Tom's Brush B-3 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Tourqued Slant Razor by Tom with a Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    It's a "Smiling Razor Day". This is one I restored, a while back, and decided to put it back in rotation. I had a super smooth 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. Just a couple of little weepers. This Tungsteel sure can get sharp.

    Razor- Shumate "Tungsteel" St Louis Missouri. USA.
    Brush- Rubberset 400 #4. Original Boar knot.
    Soap- Tobac. Super slick and thick. Nice scent.
    Aftershave- Florida Water. Perfect for a hot summer day.

    You have me confused, Paul. Not a hard thing to do, by the way.
    1917 and 1925 qualify for Throwback Thursday, but right in between those years is 1920, and you say that doesn't qualify?

    SOTD : 23rd June 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Lynx Africa Body Wash.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Omega 10077.
    Bowl Lather.
    Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Erasmic Shaving soap bowl.
    Blade: Ming Shi MP-063. (D2)
    Razor: Baili BD 191.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./P&G Old Spice Hawkridge ASL./L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.


    Early Morning Shave,

    A wonderful shave to finish my shaving week off in style.

    The Baili BD 191... is on offer from many different shaving companies, at various prices 'Vikings Blade' & Razorock are just some that comes to mind.
    The razor is made in china, like a vast majority of Shaving products these days.

    The weight of the teardrop shaped handle makes it 'bottom heavy' of which for me i don't mind, because the hefty weight does all the work with no pressure needed when shaving...It's a mild razor which would be good for someone who is curious about trying out traditional wet shaving as the "Tech closed head design" gives extra protection and no risk of catching your ear lobes or under my nose from the blade ends when shaving. A great safety design feature, especially when doing a head shave.

    My only gripe with the razor is the handle is slippery, but i rub my fingertips with alum, which gives it a more firmer grip.
    The Baili BD 191 paired together superbly with the Ming Shi MP-063 blade wonderfully making a smooth non-aggressive yet efficient enough razor & blade duo.

    Another enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a few small dollops of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Thursday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Wilkinson Sword day 2
    RVT Yuka Lyptik SS
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    My brother Mo also has some wonderful soaps and his Yuka Lyptik is one of them. If I’m not mistaken it’s a vegan based soap which has a very nice scent that’s exactly like the Halls eucalyptus lozenges, the lather is so easy to work up - does it ever get thick, rich, slick, and protective, there’s a good amount of menthol in it, and the skincare is gentle as well as soothing. I enjoyed my massage with the Prep so much, and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave went on icy cold along with its beautiful old school barbershop scent that I love so much. Another tip top BBS shave!

    Enjoy your day - be well and safe!
