    A Very Spicy Sunday shave with Stirling Spice, Old Spice, and my Rockwell 6S Matte Black.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Stirling Soaps Stirling Spice
    Razor: Rockwell Razors 6S Matte Black(R5, R4, and R3)
    Blade: Personna Med Prep (3)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    AS: Old Spice (US)
    ASB: Stirling Spice
    EdC: Old Spice (US)

    I look forward to shaves like this. It brings me back to when I was a kid. My father, grandfather, and uncle used this magic fragrance. It was my first AS and EdC when I was 11. It reminds me of good food, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, and every day in between. To me, this is what family love smells like on the male side.

    Greetings,

    A relaxing Boots Shaving product trio Sunday morning shave.

    After the close shave with my parker variant yesterday the mild, yet efficient enough Ming Shi 3000s made my Sunday morning shave a pleasurable experience.
    The humble Boots shave stick provided a slick protective lather in a short space of time leaving a superb post shave feel to my face.
    Another wonderful 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Boots ~ Freshwood ASB.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Hey Friends,

    here my Shave of the Day (15.11.2020)

    1605436947156.jpg
    Razor: Koraat 8/8 Wedge // Brush: custom made Synthetic // Soap: Tallow and Steel Boreal // Aftershave 1: Humphreys Grape Fruit Witch Hazel // Aftershave 2: Tüff Green // Music: Tom Waits-Asylum Years

    It is some "work" to get Info Straight Razor shaving but it makes fun, so that's the most important point.

    Stay safe and stay healthy

    Have a great Sunday

    Greetings
    Thorsten

    2020-11-15, Sunday

    Since today is a holiday, we are stuck at home and I am retired, there was plenty of time to do a test, after yesterday's one of pairing two soaps, I wanted to add the 3P to the De Vergulde Hand, but I proceeded in a different way.
    I used the DVH as a stick, comme d'habitude, and I started to lather the 3P in the bowl, ending up in the face.

    The shave came out very well which did not surprise me: both soaps had given each one good results, but my hopes were dashed. I was hoping that the scent of Dutch soap could be felt much more...

    The gray day allowed me to enjoy the saudade of Chet Baker: a very decent beginning of the day...

    The Arko Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #220 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Superior Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    As good as good can be. Excellent performing soap and scent with a splash that works wonderfully together. The edp is the virtual cherry on top with a dark oriental & fougere type vibe with a tinge of sweetness. As Manly as a Man can get with class and sophistication. The KAI & Merica razor were superb in performance with just a nice little bump in feel and efficiency. Great, great shave. A wonderful day and shaves to all...
