Semogue 740 Badger - MWF - Kasho Kai Captain R7/Proline-P #2 - 4711 Rose
Beauticone Rosewood handle w/Crown blade
Ordered this off the great river and it came yesterday evening . I did a quick shave with it then. Thus the 2nd use blade.
I'll post my impressions of it in the straight section.
Did not know this thread existed. I will have to visit it now and post my shavette shaves here.

Zenith 200 C XSE Unbleached - Arko - RIRON AC type/Feather Pro - 4711 EDC
Now that Fat February has finished time to chose something else.....Arko! I do have rather a lot to use!
No complaints about the excellent result
Gorgeous handle on that shavette!
I've never seen a handle like that. Was it custom?
It is an AC type razor which is readily available on Aliexpress

Vie-Long/AP Shave Faux Horse - Nivea Sensitive Pro Cream - Kasho Kai R7/Feather ProSuper #12 - Denim Musk AS
got a question for you?
The aftershave in your pic , what is the scent?
Is it tobacco flower or pipe tobacco or cigar-ish scent.
I like tobacco scent and wouldn't mind picking up an a/s in that vein.
Warm water face wash and rub
Nox rub as a preshave
Yushu cream applied once and let it sit a few minutes and then reapplied,nice and light meringue type foam
Beauticone Shavette w/ 2nd use Crown stainless blade
1st pass n-s
2nd pass opposite hand diagonal
warm water rinse
cold wash cloth followup
A hi DFS result
Lustray Spice a/s with Vit E oil and Sweet Almond oil added and rubbed thru the hair and beard and shaved areas
I tend to add the oil mix to my aftershave and rub it into my hair.I have long hair and it will frizz around the temples and etc without it.
then out the door for jury duty.
It's a tobacco flower scent. Hope that helps!
