    Hi Friends,

    Here my Sunday Shave (19.11.2023)

    Pre: Furbo Sansdolor // Razor: Schick Type E // Blade: Personna Injector // Soap: Soap Commander Endurance // Brush: Shavemac // Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve

    I have not used an Injector for…yeah…decades…so i thought it would be time again to give it a go.

    It is quite a bit „tricky“ go get and hold the correct angle during the shave so now and then the shave felt a bit „scratchy“. But not uncomfortable in any means.

    The Soap did (again) a fantastic job. Thick, slick and very cushiony so the shave was definitely a good one.

    The Special Reserve is a well matching Aftershave. I love this „sweet“, leathery scent. Wonderful.

    An 8 out of 10

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Thanks my friend!

    Fernando wasn’t kidding when he told me about how this soap and aftershave were a perfect match to the Shulton Old Spice!

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Derby day 7
    MSC Frosted Bay Rum SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Frosted Bay Rum AS Splash

    Ach du lieber - bay rum with menthol - a marriage made in heaven, especially if it’s made by my dear brother Fernando in Johannesburg, South Africa. This Frosted Bay Rum soap and aftershave have the most GORGEOUS bay rum scent I’ve ever experienced, the soap is a tallow based treasure with such awesome lather that’s so thick, rich, creamy, SUPER SLICK as well as protective, the menthol sensation hits hard especially during the second and third passes, and it’s chock full of soothing skincare. I enjoyed my massage with the Prep so much, and the Frosted Bay Rum aftershave went on with its delightful long lasting scent along with a lulu of a menthol kick. Three glorious passes gave me a most delightful BBS shave that was such a pleasure!

    Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Star Wedge Blade
    Hendrick's Witch Hazel
    Pinaud Clubman AS

    The START Shaving Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #41 two-band badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Kampfe Brothers/Star Lather Catcher and a Star Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Hendrick's Witch Hazel and then Pinaud Clubman After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shave #17 on this Spanish Beauty, since last honed. I had a very smooth 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. Zero issues, no tugging, just a smooth shave from this post JMP razor. There is nothing better to shave with, than a sharp Straight Razor.

    Razor- Filarmonica 13 "Doble Temple" "Muleta Sello Oro"
    Brush- @oscar11 Special. Synthetic knot.
    Soap- Art Of Shaving "Kingsman Bourbon". Wonderful.
    Aftershave- Vintage Shulton Old Spice. "Magic 1870" decanter.

    The Hawk V3 is one of my favorite razors. Really nice with Feather blade. I also have the open comb head for it. LOVE them single edge razors!
