    AS: Noble Otter Monarch

    Good morning!

    Fantastic first shave with the Muramasa! I decided to start at the lowest setting. Little to no blade feel but enough audible feedback to maintain the small yet effective cutting angle. I did my usual three passes and found one little patch of sandpaper along my right jawline that required a light touch up. The alum had absolutely nothing to report.

    Fantastic photo and shave Jim. I see you got the Muramasa. I used mine this morning as well. I absolutely love mine.

    Is that Irish Spring soap bar good for a deodorant soap still??

    Thanks, Clint!
    I bit on the sale. Ordered it Wednesday evening and had it in hand yesterday afternoon. Quick trip from Portugal. I'm looking forward to getting to know each of the settings.

    They have the quickest shipping. I really like the presentation of the razor in the packaging. All the settings work well for me but I keep coming back to 3 or 4.

    Breaking in this little fingerling of a brush I picked up for kicks. Perfect finger grips and a wonderful knot. It put together a luxurious face lather with the Dragon’s Blood soap. Yes this soap scent is the incense, just great stuff. The phenomenally sharp Filarmonica transformed 3 days of graying wire stubble into a perfect sheet of smooth glass.
    The post shave with this soap goes on for miles.

    Sunday Schick shave, Nov 28th 2021

    Razor: Schick Golden 500 with hydro magic- Mfg 1957-64,longest of all my razors 5 3/8 inches, unisex razor(?) nice mild injector, easy to clean with hydro magic(good idea IMO).
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE (2) Very sharp, good longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap: Ogallala Bayrum with sandal wood, nice scent with great lather qualities(misted), misting seems I'm able to dial in this soap better IMO, seemed thirsty this morning.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Tuxedo knot with black marble handle, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, great scrub, great painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash 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 with sandal wood + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(Balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Golden 500 injector with hydro magic + a Personna coated injector blade.

    I wash my hands these days with Creed Adventus soap...kinda, that is. Doc Ezlovan flipped in a free Xecutive Man hand soap with my last order.
