    Hi Friends,

    my Shave of the Day (05.06.2022)

    Razor: Razorine V2 Brass // Blade: Gillette Wilkinson India // Soap: Soap Commander Heritage // Brush: Deer horn Synthetic // Aftershave: Alt Innsbruck

    Good shave. The V2 is new and came in the last days. In comparison to V1 the handle is thicker and more grippy, the overall weight has increased which makes the V2 the better one.

    With the point you find the correct handling and the angle to shave with the Razorine, the shave is really good. But when you have not shaved with it for a long long time (in my case with V1) there is a slight learning curve. But it is a joyful experiment.

    The Razorine is gentle and smooth. The blade pairs very nice it. The gorgeous brush had no problems whipping up fantastic lather. The scent of the „Heritage“ is SO wonderful. Peaches, Apples and something „candy“-sweet in it. More for the Fall, but today it it rainy, cloudy and somewhat „cold“ here in Germany so the soap matches very good.

    One more thing which i did not use for a long time…Alt Innsbruck. Very cooling, very oldschool (scentwise) and the scent is not that bad when it comes to the pairing with the soap.

    It was a fun shave. Not the best, but far far away from being „bad“. Just average. I am not 100% BBS, but i am not a guy which needs a BBS shave. It happens, when it happens. If not, i am also absolutely fine with it.

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

    Sunday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Wilkinson Sword/Shark day 12
    Rockwell SS
    Rockwell ASB
    Brut AS Splash
    Brut EdT

    This Rockwell soap and balm were gifts from my father-in-law a couple of years ago and I think they’re both awesome. They’re made here in Canada and they have such a beautiful old school barbershop scent. The soap is glycerine based, it lathers so easily, and the skincare is excellent. The matching balm is so moisturizing as well as soothing, and I really enjoy the scent of Brut now and then - it pairs very well with the scent of this soap and balm. Two passes were good enough to achieve a terrific BBS shave!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe!

    Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Proraso Sandalwood Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #426 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday Schick Shave, June 5th 2022

    Razor : Schick E2 type, Canadian variant, Mfg 1930's 40's, excellent mid range, light touch works the best for stellar shaves, 1OZ weight, I like using this razor because of end results. A person just starting to use a E2 or any E & G type Schick razor might press a little, avoid that and you will have a excellent shave mostly IMO.
    Blade : Personna injector SS PTFE (10)- Very sharp, smooths out nicely, great longevity + predictable.
    Soap : Gillette Pure cream- nice mid range clean scent + excellent lather qualities. Makes excellent ubber lather(mixed in with left over soap.
    Brush : Yaqi 24mm Mountain lake 2 band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, very nice scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Fine Fresh Vetiver with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Schick E2 injector with a coated Personna blade.
