    Trick or Treat week, daily double, Saturday, October 29th 2022

    Razor : Yaqi Excalibur SE 50mm, Yaqi Milano handle, Mfg 2021> excellent tame mid range, interesting clamping design, small head parts. I always receive excellent shaves with this razor 95%> of the time.
    Razor : Yaqi Telstar DE head with a Micromatic handle - Mfg head 2022>,mid range, good finish on Zamak head with positive blade feel.
    Blade : Schick Proline p30, sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity. I enjoy this blade a lot.
    Blade: Treet black beauty carbon steel (2 .33) sharp & smooth for 2 shaves . Its a 2 shave blade for myself with my beard type. The first 2 shaves where great!
    Soap : Mitchell's wool fat, mild clean scent when puck is dry, when lathered scent is more noticeable, good lather qualities. Triple milled, I cut some slivers off with my pocket knife and press into bowl and start with a squeezed damp brush(2 flicks will work) and just start until the paste starts and just add drops of water by hand or a spray mister and repeat...... until desired lather reached and it produces a nice lather. Too much water at first will make your lather bubbly & will make you chase your preferred lather is my conclusion. Easy soap to use in 1-2 minutes of lathering then apply to a wet face.
    Brush : Yaqi "orbital ring"24mm boar bristle, excellent lather generator, soft split end bristles, excellent splay scrubber + good lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : witch hazel beard cleanse + Nivea refreshing AS(nice scent)+ a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] I started out with the Treet blade but it was not performing well so went with my Yaqi Excalibur 50mm with a Schick proline p30 blade with the normal excellent results.

    Have some great shaves!

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/ Astra Green day 5
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill ASB
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill AS Splash
    Christian Dior Eau Sauvage EdT

    Lemony scented icicles in my face this morning from the delightful Glacial Lemon Chill trio - the soap is something else - wow, do I ever friggin LOVE it. The tallow formula gives it such awesome lather that’s so rich, creamy, SUPER SLICK as well as protective, the menthol sensation was pummelling my face right from the get-go, and the postshave feeling was so wonderful. The matching balm and aftershave have that same beautiful scent not to mention how frigid they are, and the Eau Sauvage is also lemony based in a lovely old school way. Three passes cleaned me up perfectly - what a cracking good BBS shave this was!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse

    Jayaruh #432 Synthetic
    Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Cella After Shave Balm

    The Cella Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #432 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher and the Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    SOTD 10-30-22:
    Preshave: Corn Husker lotion and the water that sat on the soap while I showered
    Soap: Strike Gold Ike
    Razor: Gillette Red Tip
    Blade: Van der Hagen
    Brush: Echolly synthetic
    Post shave: Alum block followed by Nivea Soothing Post Shave balm.
    Since this is my last shave of the month, this marks the end of my use of one razor and one soap. I’m glad I found a brush and blade to go along with them. This was a fairly comfortable shave, although I believe the blade had probably reached its end as it wasn’t quite as smooth as before.
    My next soap will be Tabac. Not sure about the razor. I have a Yaqi Mellon SLOC head arriving within the next 10 days and want to try that out.
