    Halloween Frankenrazor:

    I am trying to recreate the Titanium BBS-1 without actually buying one unless someone has one to sell.
    Did the Titanium BBS-1 have a Stainless steel handle?
    And the shave, phenomenal with the edge going to the LASSC BBS-1, the added weight of the stainless steel razor head adds something special.

    Razor Head: Titanium Wolfman WR2 .95 SB
    Handle: LASSC BBS-1
    Razor Blade: Personna 74 (1)

    Another neglected razor...inspired by quite a few Tech pics and mentions lately. This soap keeps hanging on, despite my best intentions.
    Have a great day all!

    Thanks, Gary. Jeeves of Hudson Street was one of my favourite artisans. The lather was top notch and a few of the scents are still some of my faves. The Tobacco Bay Leaf for sure.

    SOTD: 6th October 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Mandarin & Lemongrass Extract Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears with Mint Extracts Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Wilkinson Sword Boar.
    Face Lather.
    Lather: HWF Lanolin Shaving Soap (No.1) with Cedarwood & Patchouli.
    Blade: Dorco Prime Platinum. (D2)
    Razor: 1950's Gillette Ball End Tech. (US)

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. / Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. / Cien X-Bolt ASL. /L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.


    Early Morning Shave,

    A wonderful shave to finish my shaving week off and the focus run of the Dorco Prime Platinum blade which have been a joy to shave with throughout the focus run.
    Out of the three Dorco DE blades that i have revisited the Prime Platinum are my favourite. I find them smooth forgiving and efficient which for me is a great combination and are well suited to my skin type'.

    The WS boar brush was my first brush and still a work horse. Nothing fancy but nothing wrong with it either. It doesn't have much backbone and has shred a hair or two over the years, but it still does the job what more is required.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick- ups comfortable silky-smooth shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a few small dollops of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

    My face is feeling smooth cool & smelling divine. ;)

    Keep safe and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen. :cool:
