    7CCB53DF-2AD1-436A-B98B-D388C45E4352.jpeg So moving on down the line of Super Speeds and today was the 1956 Flare Tip. Love where this one sits on the efficiency scale. Loaded up with a Dorco Platinum and this razor is quite nice for a slow and rainy Sunday (yes it is Mother’s Day).

    Soap of the day Henri et Victoria Terre d’Henri. Very, very nice soap. The Simpson Special made quick work of lathering up and carried enough lather for three passes despite its small size.

    Lovely two pass shave was all that was required today and quite enjoyable it was. Hope everyone enjoyed some family time and most importantly honoured the woman who started it all...MOM! Happy shaves all!

    New DeLuxe
    GSB
    22mm Muhle synthetic silvertip
    Mikes Orange/Cedar/Black Pepper
    TSD Bourbon & Vanilla

    It's been a while since I've used Mikes, it's a pleasure using such a fine soap. Paired with the New DeLuxe, I enjoyed a wonderfully smooth, soothing shave.
