    The Rigas making the scene the past few days were too much and I succumbed to temptation without a fight. This is such a great razor. Although today was a little less smooth than the last few shaves it was still excellent. There’s something about that much steel and heft that makes it that much more enjoyable. :happy036:

    SOTD : 3rd October 2020.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Simple ~ Sensitive Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: APShave Co. ~ 24mm Cashmere Synthetic.
    Face Lather.
    Soap : Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime Shaving Bar.
    Blade: Personna Gem PTFE. (1)
    Razor: Ever Ready 1914. (Brass) (US)


    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Selin ~ Lemon Cologne./Aloe Vera Gel.


    A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend...Maiden shave with the Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime Shaving Bar.

    I used the soap like a shave stick rubbing it directly into my stubble then started to build up a lather with my wet brush adding more water to the tips of the brush continued building the lather until i got it to the consistency i like, adding more water to the tips of brush in-between each pass.It's a thirsty soap and can take a good amount of water when building up a lather without fear of it drying out. The soap has a wonderful scent, a good texture it's protective, slick and most importantly the lather didn't dissipate or dry out on my face in between each pass, leaving an impressive post shave feel to my face. An excellent Shaving soap of which i look forward to use again.

    A pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

    My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Family Dollar Old Spice

    The Speick Shaving Cream face-lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gebr. Becker 5/8 razor gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Old Spice. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
