Have A Great Day!
Great picture under a gray sky!
Today I used a cream that had been lying forgotten for a long time: P160, without tallow.
I do not know since how long it is out of production, but has maintained its excellent characteristics and also its delicate fragrance.
It is a great product, just like its harder brother, with high smoothness and good post shave; lathers easily, thanks also to the efficient brush!
The task of the razor was a sinecure.
From the picture it may look like the sun is shining, but it's impossible: the forecast said it's raining!

The Eufros Sandalo Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #417 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Tourqued Slant razor by Tom White with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Razor: Gillette old type with tech fat handle-MFG 1920's,upper mid range, this razor was very much enjoyed by previous owner-s? it has a very brassed top cap , it came from a person with minimum means is what I thought when I observed the handle how he jammed paper in around threaded insert and barrel area of handle . He must of had a very good hand technique to shave with a wobbly cracked round ball type handle. He had to squeeze handle and stroke at the same time to make it work.
Blade: Gillette silver blue (3) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth.
Soap: Taylor of old Bond street Sandal wood(tobs)- very enjoyable scent with good lather qualities.
Brush: Yaqi dice, Tuxedo knot 26 mm syn- Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips, newly purchased.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = Excellent shave with my well used Gillette Old type.(Can understand why previous owner liked this razor so much!)
Have some great shaves! Stay and think safe in these times!

Gem Contour II mk2, gem stainless ptfe blade, shave 5
Results are in the Mk1 and Mk2 Contour II razors are identical far as I can tell shave wise. Finish still falls short but close to a BBS finish. There shouldn't be any difference with the mk3 but I will be using that one next for completeness sake.
Here are the 3 styles of Contour II razors
mk1 on the left
mk2 in the middle
mk3 on the right

Thank you, Sergio! No, it's a synthetic knot.
