    Friday morning shave I had an experimental setup today as I mixed a shaving cream (Balea Men Rasiercreme Sensitive) with Martin de Candre Agrumes shaving soap. It created a lot of lather with the SOC boar but the performance was not as good as with the MdC alone. I won’t repeat this experiment...

    Today’s shave was significantly better than yesterday. I used the SOC boar to lather Haslinger Sheep - luxurious lather, although it’s quality lessened in the third pass. The boar is really a fine brush now, I am happy to have bought it. scores a 9/10 Razor: Rockwell 6S, WTG/XTG R4, ATG and...

    Today I learnt something about shaving, two things, actually. One I knew already (but got reminded sharply), one I did not think about. Today I was looking forward to a nice shave with Haslinger Sheep lathered with the Yaqi Monster and a 3.5 pass shave with the Rockwell 6S and a new Personna...

    Tuesday morning shave - today using again the SOC boar that created lots of and great lather of a Haslinger Sheep soap. 3 passes reduced one day of growth to a clear DFS. In the third pass the blade started tugging and created some nicks - good bye, Personna Red. First and second pass were...

    So, now a belated post regarding my yesterday's saturday shave... I had time so I decided to give the Martin de Candre Agrumes a go with my easiest brush, the Yaqi Monster. As can be seen from the picture (hopefully the upload works) I have a tendency towards large brushes and the Monster is...

    The volcano drives my curiosity... I use this Haslinger soap for quite a while now. How does the added soap change its “latherability”? happy shaves!

    Yes, not the first time. In deed, I get along maximum three times with the Personna Red, five times with Feather and KAI blades. Perhaps not steel but pretty tough and quite a few of them!

    Today it was - again - time for the SOC boar to perform - and how well it did... I face lathered Haslinger Sheep and the SOC created an excellent lather. First pass with the Rockwell 6S was great, during the second pass the blade started to tug and the third pass was quite awful, despite the...
