    PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm

    The PSC Caffeinated Shave Cream lathered well with Jayaruh #30 Silvertip Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Fuzzy Catcher Lather Catcher Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday SE injector shave, OCtober 24th 2021

    Razor: Yaqi 50mm V2 Excalibur- Mfg 2021, great design for a tame mid range daily driver, easy to use, good results. The head parts are small and I like to work over a wash cloth to assemble head parts just in case I drop something(works well).
    Blade: Schick Proline P30 (5) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth + longevity reasonable(still testing longevity).
    Soap: Razorock Don Marco, nice citrus scent with excellent lather qualities. Trying different lather process with a water mister.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Sagrada Familia, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips + nice scrubber & great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Dedicated Brush(Cashmere 24mm syn)wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Italian barber Amici with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion balm + scentless. [​IMG]
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper = [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Yaqi Excalibur with a Schick proline.

    Not sure what the problem is but lately I can't seem to get my photo into my post on the first try. I hit the upload button and it acts like I'll get the box to choose the file I want and then it never pops up. I end up posting my reply and then going back in with the edit function and then it will let me add a photo. Maybe I'll try using Edge instead of Chrome.

    Anyhow, a nice shave this morning except I was in a hurry after neglecting to watch the clock. Starting to like this Badger PSO after using it a few times. It's very concentrated so you don't need very much.

    Have a great week fellow shavers!

    Today I shaved my mug with a Swedish Faux Frameback 4/8 that dates to between the 1880s- 1890s. These razors marked the point just prior to the appearance of Swedish hollow ground razors. The Faux frameback was a thin solid piece of steel to which an external spine was attached. I know a lot of folk like these razors, but I find the shave to be much less refined than the later hollow ground Swedish razors. Yes it gets the job done, but it is a much cruder shaving tool than a hollow ground straight IMHO. Three passes got the job done, but the shave just wasn’t as refined as say my Klas Tornblom 4/8 which is hollow ground and definitely provides a more comfortable, closer shave.

    A few years ago the 2011 Muhle R41 safety razor would be described as extremely aggressive and terms like “beast” were bandied about in describing it. Honestly, I believe the original handle the razor came with didn’t help matters. I was never happy with the grip it provided. My solution was to swap in a Weber Bulldog handle which made a great difference weight and balance-wise in hand for me. I find the razor to be an incredibly efficient dome shaver that when equipped with a sharp DE blade like a Feather leaves my dome velveteen smooth as it did this morning. In fact, my dome shave was without doubt closer and smoother than the mug shave this morning.

    RAZOR: CW Dahlgren 4/8 Faux Frameback (Mug), Muhle 2011 R41 Weber Bulldog Handle
    BLADE: Feather DE
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Rooney Ebony Pure Badger
    CREAM: PSC Caffeinated Shaving Cream
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with PSC Caffeinated AS Balm.
