    Trying to get BBS on the neck was turning into a scrapefest so I gave up. I think it's the razor more than the blade that couldn't get that area perfectly clean. Jaw and face came off smooth, however. Overall, an interesting vintage carbon shave (but carbon shaves are always interesting) that scratched the itch of curiosity.

    Lucky Tiger lotion.

    Razor : Gillette Fatboy, E4- Mfg 1959 4th qtr, well built to last for generations, I find this Gillette Fatboy one of their better razors from my shaving experiences, I get nice results and very few issues over the years of use + birthday yr razor.
    Blade : Personna red (3) sharp & smooth with great longevity. Top 5 tier blades.
    Soap : Yaqi Green, nice scented soap + excellent lather qualities. Yaqi commissioned M.S.Creations S.A for their line of soaps and aftershaves and did a nice job of it IMO. Green is one of my favorite scents.
    Brush : Yaqi "Lucky dice" 26mm Tuxedo knot, Excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, great splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. Nice big handle for large hands and a joy to use.
    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(7) + ATG(7) + pickups(8 setting).
    Post shave : Yaqi Green[​IMG]( similar to Lacoste green cologne) with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)2 template 10.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Gillette Fatboy with a Personna red blade.

    Omega 10108 Boar - Kent (? Palm) - Type 77 Barber Razor/Rhinoceros #4 - 4711 AS

    First use of this possibly mislabelled Soap. Despite being labelled as a tallow soap it is definitely different. My initial impressions are more floral with less residual slickness. It wasn't a bad soap but when you have used the previous incarnation you realise it is not as good.

    Menthol Monday:

    Today’s Grand Freeze is brought to you by,

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 8
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero SS
    Prep ASB
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero AS Toner
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    There’s another soap named Absolute Zero from WM Neumann but I have no idea what it’s like. All I know is that my dear friend Abir’s version is one of the COLDEST soaps I ever used - yes, it’s a match for any of the Stirling Glacials. It’s vegan based, it has a lovely aquatic/minty type of scent, it lathers beautifully with tons of slickness, and it gives such soothing, gentle skincare. The Prep has become my favourite balm for good reasons - it moisturizes, soothes, and cools my skin instantly, the Absolute Zero aftershave has the same awesome scent as the soap and it’s a menthol atom bomb - not only that, it does great things for my skin. Last but not least the Bleu de Chanel had me smelling gorgeous. Three passes delivered another perfect BBS shave that I enjoyed from start to finish!

    Wishing you all a good week - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Menthol Monday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #443 Synthetic
    TNNSER V.1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Osage Rub

    The TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #443 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER V.1 Razor and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shave of the Week Starting 6/5/2023

    Gillette New razor
    Astra SP blade
    JR #85 brush
    Seaforth SS (vintage)
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Truly love the vintage Seaforth. For me, the current Seaforth! offerings don't hold a candle to the Vintage Seaforth. Not that the current offerings are lacking, they're not. In fact, I have 4 of them and enjoy using them. Just a personal thing. At any rate, my face is very happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.
