    Razor: Tatara Muramasa
    Blade: Gillette Nacet (2)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    Pre-shave: PAA Cube
    Soap: Noble Otter Orbit
    Stirling Unscented Witch Hazel
    B&M Unscented Balm
    AS: Noble Otter Orbit

    Good morning!

    Another wonderful shave with the Muramasa! Setting 2 today. More of a difference than expected. Just a whisper of blade feel but I didn't feel the need to be as disciplined with the angle as setting 1. Actually no discipline at all, pretty mindless shave. Easy three passes with just a tickle from the alum at my adams apple.

    Razor: Gem Micromatic Flying wing, Guiding eye, MMBT......(8) excellent tame mid range, heaviest of all the Micromatics, the razor is designed for mild side shaving of the Micromatics. I enjoy using this razor, but I don't expect BBS either & that is great.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE(8) Very sharp, Great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap: Speick stick, mild spicy scent with excellent lather qualities. (Misted)Excellent looking lather.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Ferrari boar brush, excellent lather generator, soft split end tips, nice scrub, 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: Razorock King Louis Lavender with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion(balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS ,DFS,BbS+ no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Micromatic bullet tip with a coated Gem blade.

    A bit of a catch up post. 2 very nice 3 pass shaves. I don't usually enjoy TTO shaves as much as 3 piece shaves with vintage Gillettes, but these were two quality shaves.

    Have a great day all!
