    An unplanned Shave this morning but need to pass some time while waiting for phone line to be sorted. Historically cart blades never lasted me a long time, and though this shave was comfortable enough, the finish shows that the blade is past its best,

    Menthol Monday:

    A relatively mild dose of menthol because I had to hurry up and shave. I have a follow up appointment with my doctor who operated on my hip.

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Rapira
    Lyko SC
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    I love the shaves I get from this Canadian Tech - even though this razor is very mild it performs really efficiently. Smooth as silk from two passes!

    Have a good week - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Ingram Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #437 Silvertip Badger
    Gillette Tech Slant Razor
    Gillette Nacet Stainless
    Osage Rub

    The Ingram Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #437 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Tech Slant Razor and a Gillette 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...

    I am doing a week of slants, and I am starting off with the Gillette Tech Slant, a razor made with a jig created by @twhite and modified by Ryan Foster. Read more here => Gillette Tech Slant

    Razor : Micromatic Clog Pruf, Peerless model- Mfg 1945, mid range, well designed and built to last many generations. This is one of favorite Micromatics of the 3 Micromatic base models that where produced for decades. Had a close comfortable no issues shave this morning with a historical excellent razor .
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE(8) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade for handling.
    Soap : La Toja stick, very mild scent with great lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi " Artic sky" 24mm 3band silvertip badger, excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    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 Amici splash with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : [​IMG] or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my MMCP with a coated Gem blade.

    Shave of the Week Starting 1 May 2023

    Weber DLC razor
    Gillette 365 blade
    Whipped Dog Synthetic brush
    Williams Mug Soap
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Various A/S

    Can't beat a shave with Williams SS, at least that's the way I feel about it. All the parts liked each other and a fine shave was had. The Weber DLC seems to be a rare thing now. I like mine and think I'll keep it. Now go enjoy your day folks.
