    Razor : Yaqi "Top aggressive slant"- Mfg 2019>, aggressive, interesting torque type slant, lots of blade feel for fellows who enjoy that, I use a Steep approach(riding the bar) with a short handle for less leverage and weight. It does look a little mean for a razor and it can be if you plunk it to start a stroke. I find this razor very enjoyable change and the shaves can be very stellar. One of my closest shaving razor in my rotation and will always be there for a nice close shave. Removing the blade with the top cap side tabs in the way I use a Q-tip to lift it a bit to get my big fingers to grab it easier. Nice razor to use when a person knows it well.
    Blade : Personna red(4) sharp and smooth with great longevity.
    Soap : Razorock XXX Fresco, nice XXX clean scent with a little menthol + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Moka express" 26 mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber+ excellent lather painter. If a person like a big 2band badger this brush seems to work for most who own it.
    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 : Razorock XXX Fresco with witch hazel .
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2) 1 10.545 1.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent stellar shave that no issues with a Personna red blade. It does much better for a very close shave for myself.

    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 3
    Captain Nemo Blend 47 SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash

    This Blend 47 soap from Captain Nemo in Kolkata, India is really excellent stuff. Abir is a very nice young fellow and a terrific artisan who sure knows what he’s doing. This soap is vegan based with a really nice eucalyptus scent, it lathers beautifully with lots of slickness, there’s a pretty good dose of menthol, and it’s so skin friendly. The Prep delivered a wonderful moisturized, soothing postshave feeling, and the Aqua Velva aftershave completed the job superbly with a good, strong menthol kick. Three glorious passes gave me a dynamite BBS shave that was lotsa fun!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #426 Synthetic
    Parker Variant
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Lucky Tiger After Shave

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #426 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Parker Variant Razor and a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
