    Monday's Shave

    Nivea Men Face Wash
    Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #168 (first shave)
    Rockwell 6C (first shave)
    Rockwell Swedish Stainless
    CWR, Asma Alum Block
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    This was my first shave with the JR#168 and the Rockwell 6C, and I must say that neither was a disappointment. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #168 Synthetic brush. Using the #4 plate (moderate), I did the first pass with the Rockwell 6C razor and Rockwell Swedish Stainless blade. Then I flipped the plate over to #2 (mild) for the second pass, and I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... It was a very successful first shave. The Rockwell 6C is a great success.

    Hey Friends,

    my belated shave from yesterday:

    Razor: iKon S3S w. Jürgen Hempel Handle // Blade: Astra SP // Soap: Saponificio Varesino Stella Alpina // Brush: Rubberset Replica // Aftershave: Meißner Tremonia Black

    WHAT A SHAVE!!! This razor rocks!!! The Head in combination with this handle is a beast. SO heavy...if this razor slips and begins to fall, the end is near. Tried the Astra Blade in it and enjoyed the shave very much. It was very thoroughly and it was absolutely gentle. I don´t think, that there is a razor, which is more gentle than this. Stunning!!! The soap performed outstanding as ever and my bathroom smelled like heaven. The lather was super slick and thick and made the shave even more enjoyable. At last i used my Meißner Black Aftershave, because they both complement each other very well. Even for my liking.

    You see, i enjoyed my shave a lot. It was great and a shave like this shows me, that the classic wetshaving is a thing, EVERY man should do. Treatment for your soul!!!

    This is it for now, enjoy your time, have a great start into the new week, have a great shave and take care.

    Cool Monday
    Today was my first use of B-M Reserve Cool soap. The scent matches the splash perfectly and is stronger to my nose. The lather is extremely thick and effective. I like it, and it provides plenty of residual slickness and a nice post shave feel. I'll have to use it more to decide if it's better than the glissant base, but it sure gets the job done. I want to try it with my other brushes, too. I realized I forgot to get more Cool splash, and this bottle is done. I also used CL Champes de Lavande for the first time, and it is truly excellent.
    Prep: Chattilon Lux Butter
    Soap: B-M Reserve Cool
    Brush: Slugger 159
    Razor: Futur

    WTG, touch-up

    Nice and easy menthol Monday shave. Great way to start the work week. Stirling is top notch and I love the chill from Glacial Lemon. Really cold but with tremendous skincare properties and all the good stuff you look for. The Pushbutton worked quite well and all came together nicely.

    Have a great day!

    My face is absolutely frozen-stiff from this menthol bombardment, as well as smooth as a dolphin. The Gatsby facial wash (almost finished) started the wheels in motion and three passes with the awesome, frigid lather from the Glacial Spearmint soap made easy work of my rough stubble. My Super Speed, loaded with a new Rapira did the job in fine style. The Glacial Spearmint balm and the Snake Bite aftershave splash put two more coats of ice in my face which felt heavenly! :happy088: :happy088:

    Wishing y'all a terrific week and great shaves! :)

    @ChiefShaver Thorsten, mein lieber - heute kann ich sagen mit sicherheit dass Du eine fantastisches Bild hast. Wie immer bin ich beeindruckt! :smiley respect:

    Merkur Futur- a real one :)
    Lab Blue [ 3 ]
    Alum Rub /Rinse off
    Bay Rum splash - made by a friend

    After a shave with a Hawk decided to try the Futur. Since embarking on SE/Injector shaves, have found that
    when I make the occasional return to DE shaving, the Shaves are very good. Found that the P&B s rich creamy
    lather, provided excellent cushion and glide for the shave.
    Finished off the Shave with my usual Alum Rub, followed by the Bay Rum Splash made by a friend on a UK Forum. Not too powerful but the scent still lingers nicely a few hours on.
