    Favorites Friday today. I’m headed to the dentist to have a tooth pulled and a bone graft to set up an implant. So, like a man condemned to the chair getting his favorite meal, I decided I deserved a spectacular shave. As expected, all my favorites delivered :happy036:

    Hot water preparation
    Argan Oil PSO
    Savile Row 3824
    Castle Forbes Lavender Shave Cream
    Lund 6/8
    Castle Forbes Lavender After Shave Balm

    Good luck at the dentist Karl!

    I’d buy another of those PW Shell in a heartbeat.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Colgate Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #47
    Russian Rocket 5/8
    CWR
    Granddad's Blend AS

    The Colgate Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #47 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Russian Rocket 5/8 gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    A superb but routine shave featuring all ‘the usual suspects’, Filly 14 Novodur user, SMN and Agua Balsamica. The gear may be routine, but familiar gear usually yields excellent results!

    Hayashi 8000, soap and splash were Floris 89 for a great Sunday morning shave. This razor, as best that I can tell, was part of a 2-razor set along with the 1072 which is a smaller razor. Not a pair as they were different razors, and were I believe, intended for the ladies’ use. You often see them separated, but I know of one other person who bought them as a set like I did.

    That's interesting. I bought the exact set, NOS, boxes and all, couple years ago from an expat living in Japan. Wonderful set.

    Hey @alex1921 - you were the one that I was thinking about - I think!

    Edit: yes, these were NOS also.

    Monday morning, CVH No. 7. Noticed that I have to hone it on higher grits. Not that smooth shave as it should be.

    That is cool!

    CVH M.K. 133 prototype in ivory, cream was T&H lavender lathered with a T&H brush, and a splash of SMN lavande AS finished up a BDBS shave.
