    Inspired by @clint64 to reach for the L'Orange Noir and TdH earlier this morning. Always a good idea.
    I must say, I am not usually one who worries about razor/blade combos. If it is a Gillette from St. Petes, it always works in whatever shaver I throw it in. That being said, this Floating Head doesn't require a blade known for overt sharpness...the smooth Astra Green is a very nice compliment indeed.
    Have a great day all!

    Not many Strop Shoppe tallow tubs left out there, Jim. @Dave in KY has one as well, iirc, but they are pretty rare these days!

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Pomegranate & Apple Extract Shower Gel.

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face & head.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: APShave Co 24mm Cashmere Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Haslinger Aloe Vera Shaving Soap.
    Blade: Super Max Blue Diamond Titanium. (D1)
    Razor: Parker 98r.

    Post:
    Cold water Face & Head wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face & Head Rinse. /Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Nivea Men Fresh Kick ASB./Milton Lloyd The Man Cobalt EdT.

    Greetings,

    Cold water face & head shave.

    A new shave set up to start the weekend....Last week of my 'Focus on one razor month'. The Parker 98r/Super Max BDT duo was another great combo.....Out of all the subcontinent DE blades that i have paired together the parker 98r throughout the month the Super Max BDT, Treet 7DP & the Gillette 7'oClock SP have been my favourites...As a small christmas gift to myself i have placed an order for a 100 Sunny Superior Stainless blades to add to my growing modest subcontinent DE blades collection of which i look forward to trying out once they arrive.
    The inexpensive Pears Transparent Bar Soap makes a wonderful pre shave....Superb stuff!
    The Haslinger Aloe Vera soap provided is such a great performing nice mild fragranced shaving soap which my mature skin loves and creates an acceptable lather in a short space of time which doesn't dissipate or dry out in-between passes leaving a superb post shave feel.
    An invigorating cold water face and head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small squirts of Milton Lloyd The Man Cobalt EdT to the pulse points.

    My face and precious swede are both feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Saturday's Shave
    zcws.jpg

    Cold Water Rinse
    Strop Shoppe Unscented Shave Soap
    Jayaruh 287 Synthetic
    Stoll Jr. Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    CWR
    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    Day 27 of 3D Printed Razor Month

    The Strop Shoppe Unscented Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh 287 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Stoll Jr. 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 Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 4
    RVT Yuka Lyptik SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash

    There’s no way that I could ignore Mo’s soaps because they’re absolutely awesome - his Yuka Lyptik smells really nice - exactly like the Halls eucalyptus lozenges, the lather is such a pleasure to work up, the menthol sensation is wonderful, and the postshave feeling is very comfortable. The Prep, together with the Aqua Velva completed the job perfectly. Three passes gave me a brilliant BBS shave that I enjoyed so much!

    Enjoy your weekend and your shaves - be well and safe!

    Razor: Gillette British Rocket SS- MFG 1950's N.D.Codes, nice mild razor, it's nice to have a few mild razors in the my harem of razors I enjoy, well built and does a great job of shaving a little faster in which it was designed for this task for men on the go.
    Blade: Kai SS (7) sharp & smooth with great longevity, extra wide by 4.5/1000 of inch per side, great for mild razors IMO.
    Soap: Ogallala Bayrum sage & cedarwood, nice scent & a soap that is enjoyable to try to dial in, mister helps me a lot for this.(misted)
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Moka 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice scrubber + great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Witch hazel beard cleanse + Ogallala Bayrum & Sandal wood + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion(balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS, DFS, BbS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]Excellent shave with my British Gillette SS Rocket with a Kai SS blade.
