    Iwasaki Swedish steel kamisori with a kiita edge, software was AdP wannabees, SV Asylum Colonia beta 4.3 and Fine Italian Citrus AS. The SV Colonia is great soap, and the scent is good but lacks some of the more delicate or nuanced notes that AdP cream scent has, but still an excellent scent. The Fine IC surprised me, it’s quite close to AdP. A Semogue Galahad did the lathering.

    AdP Colonia type scents are great any time of the year, but it’s particularly nice in summer I think.

    Let’s use “Thursday” :)
    Brush: Sparrow Shaving
    Suds: Stirling
    This was the 3rd blade of the 7 so far, and the last JNat edge. Those little Okudo stones are precious. Saturday will be a shift to a Coticule edge, and still up in the air on what to do with the last 3 edges.

    I hadn't touched this razor in a while. Excellent shave, even if the soap was mediocre. I had a smooth 2 pass shave, with BBS results. Zero issues for the razor. The soap wants to dry out fast, and a rather thin lather. But, slick when overly wet. What can you expect, for $1.25.

    Razor- Wade & Butcher "Special"
    Brush- Rubberset 400. #4
    Soap- B-Pure. Made in China.
    Aftershave- Florida Water.

    6/8 Gemco up today for the maiden shave off the new kiita that arrived yesterday. It’s excellent! Soap was La Toja lathered with a SOC boar, and a splash of Myrsol Blue finished up a superb shave.

    Newly acquired, somewhat restored, and freshly honed. This little Swede delivered a very smooth 2 pass shave, that was BDBS. Nice razor, without issues. It is a near wedge, so, it is a little stiff.

    Razor- CVH B.K.41. Eskilstuna Seden
    Brush- @oscar11 Special
    Soap- Arko/Avon Spicy scented
    Aftershave- Vintage Avon Spicy.
