    Razor : Yaqi Slope slant, 316SS V2 - Mfg 2023>, mild range to mid range depending on blade used, machining and finish are adequate for my shaving needs. I always liked slant razors and this one is no exception. Kai SS blade with the Slope slant are a good combination for my shave.
    Blade : Kai SS extra wide(3) sharp & smooth with excellent longevity.
    Soap : Mitchell's wool fat, nice mild clean scent with excellent lather qualities. Makes great Ubber lather also.
    Brush : Yaqi "Robin" 24mm boar bristle, excellent lather generator, soft split end boar bristle tips, nice 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 : witch hazel beard cleanse + Nivea refreshing lotion + 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 Yaqi Slope slant with a Kai SS extra wide blade.

    Thanks Jeff! The soap is made by an Artisan soap maker in South Wales. They do have an online presence but I think they mainly visit markets and craft fairs. The soap is actually very good producing a great lather and it gives a great post shave will take an obscene amount of water. Folk Soap is their name

    Friday morning - my birthday shave:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 12
    Stirling Frozen Tundra SS
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash

    A year older today and hopefully a year wiser!

    This morning I wanted to show my brother Rod’s soaps some love so I selected the Frozen Tundra and I’m happy that I did. This soap has such a beautiful scent that’s a blend of peppermint, wintergreen, with earthy notes, the lather is such a pleasure to work up, there’s no shortage of menthol - in fact it’s the second coldest Stirling soap after the Glacials, and it has such soothing, gentle skincare. Needless to say the Prep and the Alt Innsbruck were a perfect finishing combo. Three passes gave me a helluva fine BBS shave that I enjoyed immensely!

    Have a great weekend - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Personna Injector Blade
    Cella After Shave Balm

    The De Vergulde Hand Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #277 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick M-2 Adjustable Razor and a Personna Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
