    Rifuto #38, cream was AdP lathered with a lime Paladin Chief, and AdP Intensa finished off a great shave.

    My trusty Russian Paketa, celebrating the first human in space, gave a fantastic shave. It’s a lightweight razor and seems to like a flatter angle than most. It likes to make noise as well :happy036:

    Hot water preparation
    Argan Oil PSO
    T&H Wellington Super Badger
    Haslinger Aloe Vera Shave Soap
    1961 STIZ Paketa 5/8
    Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel

    Thanks Tom, I have 3 MK 31 and 4 Mk 30. The 30 has a special feeling due to the fact that I received one at my 20 birthday from my late father. However the 31 is something special! If you have not tried one, don’t waste your time Gents!

    Rifuto, cream was ‘XPEC 1913’, unscented XPEC scented with Domenico Caraceni 1913. A Razorock boar did the lathering and a bit of C&C 88 AS finished up.

    Let’s keep the W&B train chugging :)
    Brush: Shavemac
    Suds: Catie’s Bubbles for WCS
    Splash: Fine L’Orange Noir

    Had some fun recently with this one… rescaled in old horn, reshaped the tip and added the barber’s notch, and then put one of the small Okudo’s edges on it. Good fun.

    Wade and Butcher, probably early 1800s. Soap and balm were ABC and a Paladin Chief did the lathering.
