    3D AC-Matic Razor
    Feather Artist Club Blade
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D AC-Matic Razor and the Feather Artist Club Blade gave me a close, comfortable and awesome shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Great shave my friend!

    I thought that version of Gillette cream was discontinued a long time ago!

    Tuesday morning:

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 14 (last day)
    MSC Vintage Spice SS
    Aveeno Moisturizer
    MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

    These Astra Green blades are in my honest and unbiased opinion the best for me because they’re very sharp, smooth, as well as forgiving, and they have excellent longevity in spite of my hard beard. Fernando’s Vintage Spice soap and aftershave gave me such joy - the magnificent scent which is Shulton Old Spice all the way was ever present, the soap gave me a boatload of thick, rich, mega SLICK lather, and such a comfortable postshave feeling. The Aveeno moisturizer is unscented so it doesn’t ruin the delightful scent of the Vintage Spice aftershave that I love so much. Although the Astra Green blade was very tired it still worked well enough to help me get a superb two pass BBS shave that was so much fun!

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

    ASRazor shave, Tuesday, November 22nd 2022

    Razor : Ever-Ready 1914 (AKA-LLC)-Mfg 1914-17, Excellent mid range, really enjoy the audio feedback from this razor, I do not recall ever having a bad shave with razor, built to last with some care. One for my favorite ASR razors of many.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (4) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle IMO.
    Soap : Mitchell's wool fat, nice mild clean scent with excellent lather qualities, scent seems to go up a notch when wet, easy bowl lathering. Using a synthetic brush works well with this soap also.
    Brush : Yaqi "Luck dice" 26mm Tuxedo knot, Excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, gentle 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 : Razorock Irish Countryside AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my ER 1914 LLC with a coated Gem blade.
    Have some great shaves!

    Tomorrow will be a no-shave day for me. Gotta cut up the last windfall tree to finish my firewood! It will be so nice to finally be done! It may be a couple days before I shave again.
    Thanksgiving dinner at my brother's house. At least the weather is going to be nice!
