    Razor : Star bar model #4 lather catcher, Mfg 1919-20, tame mid range, this razor works perfect with a new blade, not to many razors can even come close for results IMO. It seems to shave ever so slightly better than the Gem Jr bar for my self. Had a excellent comfortable shave this morning.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE(1) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
    Soap :Razorock Emperor, unique linear sharp scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi " Casino club" 26mm timber wolf knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. I like the face feel this brush offers!
    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 Emperor with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] stellar excellent shave with my Star bar #4 with a Gem coated blade.
    (It does not get much better a shave then this one today!)

    SOTD: 21st March 2023.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body + Face Wash.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Original Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Anbbas 24mm Tuxedo synthetic
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl : Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather:The body Shop Maca root & Aloe shaving cream.
    Blade: Shark Super Stainless. (D1)
    Frankenrazor: Muhle R41 bottom plate with Yaqi Mellon top cap + Schmidt R10 Handle. - Shark Super Stainless. (D1)

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./Alum Rub./Cold Water Rinse/Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. / Superdrug Forest Fresh ASL./Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.


    Early morning Shave,

    I have mentioned on many occasions that The Body Shop Maca Root & Aloe shaving cream never fails to provided me with a smooth protective slick lather in no time leaving a superb post shave feel....This cream gives the best protective slickness, and post shave feel that i have had from any shaving cream that i have tried to date...Superb Stuff!

    My newly experimented R41 frankenrazor continues to astound me on how efficient & smooth the Yaqi Mellon top cap & hefty Schmidt R10 Handle make. This is my new favourite frankenrazor, which will be added to my razor rotation on a regular basis.

    A comfortable BBS 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

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

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #437 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette New Improved and a Gillette Silver Blue SS Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
