    Gillette Fatboy G2
    Nacet Stainless
    Osage Rub

    The Ingram Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Fatboy G2 with a Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    P&G almost killed it when they changed it. I don’t like their version too much.

    Menthol Monday:

    One hell of a Grand Freeze!

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/7 AM day 13
    Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
    Prep ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    This is a setup that requires a strong tolerance to intense menthol because otherwise it can be uncomfortable. The mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling is chilly but it feels warm if you compare it to the Glacial Electric Sheep soap which has such a beautiful lemony/citronella/eucalyptus scent as well as fabulous lather, the menthol kick feels like Siberia in midwinter, and the mutton tallow formula gives it such soothing skincare. The Prep and the Snake Bite aftershave were such a perfect finish. Three passes did the job superbly for me - what a brilliant BBS shave this was!

    Have a good week - be well and safe!

    Shave of the Week Starting 28 March 2022

    Pal razor (British & Aluminum)
    GSB blade
    Stirling Synthetic brush
    More For You SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Long time since I used this very lightweight (30 gr) razor but I should use it more. It gives me a great shave every time. I like it. The Turkish More For You SS is some pretty good stuff too, easy to lather and great protection. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Razor: Micromatic Flying wing(AKA, guiding eye, Micromatic bullet tip=MMBT) Excellent tame mid range, I can get DFS++ usually and that is a nice sweet spot for me, heaviest of the Micromatics and designed to last, well designed with the rack & pinion clamp.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE(7) excellent, very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap: Razorock Irish countryside, mild scent with excellent lather qualities. Excellent protection slickness.
    Brush: Yaqi Mountain lake 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, great scrub + great later painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash 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. Cold clams the skin.
    Post shave: Witch hazel beard cleanse + Proraso green with witch hazel .
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]excellent shave with my Micromatic Flying wing with a coated Gem blade.
