  6. Monday shave:


    [​IMG]


    Ogallala Bay Rum Limes&Peppercorns shaving stick + Vie&Long 16910 "two bands edition" + Rotbart 15 wotj Gillette Platinum + GBellini Ebony (Lidl) lotion with Proraso balm


    Today I have tested this Ogallala soap: it smells very well, like limes&rum but it seemed me a very average soap, not hydrating definitely... a shame! I'll use several times more before getting a veredict anyway.


    And after many days using different Techs I still believe that this Rotbart is the best closed comb razor I have tested: as smooth as a Tech but it shaves much better without irritation! I think that this head design is far better than Merkur and Muhle/E&J closed comb designs and this razor is from 1930's!!! Why didn't they "copy" it?


    Cheers!
