    I love learning that what I'm assuming is aftershave is labeled in that straightforward German way, as 'razor water' and with 'razor soap' to match.

    Looks like it's a Tondeo. Did a bit of searching around, and it looks like while they still make straight razors, they don't produce this nifty flip top DE anymore. Can't seem to find what they named that beauty though.

    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    Jayaruh #206 2-band badger
    AutoStrop A1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Pinaud Vanilla AS

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #206 two-band Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 with a Personna GEM SS PTFE gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Vanilla After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 8
    MSC Citrus Melody SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Citrus Melody AS Splash

    Brrrrrrrrrr cold and beautiful - my man Fernando is a true soap and aftershave master. His Citrus Melody soap has such a gorgeous scent, the tallow formula gives it such awesome lather with great slickness, the menthol sensation is so strong that it’s almost (but not quite!) competition for the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep and the Citrus Melody aftershave left me so soothed, moisturized, and FROZEN STIFF. Three passes gave me a perfect BBS shave!

    Wishing you all a good day - be well and safe!
