Tabac Tuesday's Shave
Cold Water Rinse
Tabac Shave Soap
Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
TARMAX SE by Tom
Personna GEM SS PTFE
The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TARMAX SE Razor by Tom (set on 8) with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
The Personna GEM SS PTFE blade was at the end of its life, so I am switching to a Treet CS blade for tomorrow's shave.

Blackland/ The Blackbird double-edge razor with open comb base plate. Aggressiveness: 6.5/10 Blade gap: 0.58mm, Ideal shaving angle: 18-35°, Weight: 98g, Handle length: 85mm, Material: 303 Stainless Steel, Machining: Illinois, Finishing: Ohio. (new).
The Blackbird is a modern, double-edge safety razor designed, machined, and finished in the United States. With looks inspired by the iconic SR-71 "Blackbird" reconnaissance aircraft, the Blackbird razor is as visually striking as it is functional. Each of the Blackbird's three pieces is machined from solid 303 stainless steel to astoundingly tight tolerances, delivering exceptionally close and consistent shaves.
The machined finish Blackbird proudly shows off the markings created during the process of machining each razor. The intricate, carefully-planned patterns left in the surface tell the story of the Blackbird's journey from solid steel to finished product.
I call my razor Bluebird.
