    Cape 2000, soap was ABC lathered with a M&F Finest, and a splash of AdP finished up a fantastic shave.

    Toyo Scheön Burg, a light refurb and rescale by Stefan Stoianov (mainaman). Soap was SMN lathered with a Tulip 2 and a splash of Myrsol Agua Balsamica left me BBS.

    Testing out the new non-tallow Tabac today, it’s quite good, I actually prefer it over the old tallow version based on the scent and the better slickness. Razor was the old reliable Sub Cero and the AS was also Tabac. A Simpsons Tulip 2 did the lathering.

    That is such a gorgeous shape to that Riga Razor… love it.

    Went with an old Sheffield, all I can make is “…RT Son & Co.”
    Brush: Shavemac
    Suds: Oleo Soapworks Smoke On The Water

    I love this big Sheffield’s look and shave. I’m sure it has had a regrind or two in its day, but it feels perfect to me.
