    Pre Art of Shaving Unscented Oil + Speick shaving cream + Semogue 1335 + Merkur Futur at 2.5 with Astra azul #1 + Thayers Lavender "alum" + "Prof. B Green Ginger" sample with The Real Shaving balm

    A good shave although with some itching in my neck... this Green Ginger liked me more than the other, because it doesn't smell so sweet than the others and has an interesting woody scent. But I had to use double dose of balm to compensate the skin irritation...

    As you can see, this 1335 is starting to loose its painting after some months of sporadic use. It's a fault that happens to many Semgogue wood colour painted handles but considering that this concrete model is so cheap it doesn't worry me much...

    28mm TGN 2 band in Butterscotch
    MWF-"The Fat"
    1st pass: 9/16 Clauss honed on my La Grise, Charlie Lewis Custom (thx Paul) honed on my La Dressante, and 5/8 Spanish point Puma honed on my La Dressante.
    2nd, 3rd and cleanup passes: 5/8 Spanish point Puma (New aquisition for me, in the pic)
    Thayer's Lavender

    I had to test 3 razors I had honed over the weekend. No Shave since Friday last week, so the man hair was nice and thick. First Pass I started with the little Clauss from Shakin_Jake. Did the right cheek. Started the left cheek with the charlie lewis, and finished with the Puma. 2nd and 3rd passes were sublime! All three razors handled the beard flawlessy. They just plowed through it with no effort at all.

    New Puck of MWF was welcome. I had been out for a while, and it was like an old Friend had come home. The shaves just keep getting better, and this was my best to date!

    Good Shaving my Friends!
