    Cold Water Wash
    CTAPT Shaving Cream
    Jayaruh #30
    Wilbert "Acme" 5/8
    CWR
    Granddad's AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The CTAPT Shaving Cream face lathered well with the Jayaruh #30 brush. I did two passes with the Wilbert "Acme" 5/8 Straight and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Granddad's AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Love the darkened look of the blade. Add some carbon fiber scales... nice!

    Today's shave was with a wonderful German made razor. I had a smooth 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. Zero issues. These are some of my favorite razors.

    Razor- George Wostenholm & Son's "Pipe Razor".
    Brush- JR#262, Birdseye Maple/Ebony. WD Silvertip Badger Knot.
    Soap- Arko/Sandalwood Scented
    Aftershave- Pinaud Lime Sec.
