    2021 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Shave Trek

    Still in. I've mostly been using my Henson AL13 with Zingari Man soap. I don't think I can improve that combination - it just works.

    Which Russian made blade is the best?

    Perma-Sharp Supers work really well for me. I enjoy most of the PPI blades, and will always have a few tucks of each on hand!

    Astra SS or SP?

    I recently used both back to back in my Henson AL13. The SP was more comfortable. The SS felt good, but it wasn't as smooth. I prefer the SS in my Fatip Piccolo OC. They're both great blades in the right razor.

    How Many Soaps?

    I have 9 creams/soaps at the moment. I'm aiming to 3017 my creams, then rotate 3/4 soaps as the seasons change.

    Soaps Used the Most in 2020

    Thanks! I've got two tubs of Sego soap to get through, but I'll have to try TGS at some point!

    Soaps Used the Most in 2020

    That's a nice looking line-up! How does the Goodfellas' Smile soap perform compared to Zingari Man?

    Zingari Man

    The Sego base is fantastic. It feels like you're applying a moisturiser! I've been shaving with The Magician for a few days now and I can't fault it. I think my face will really benefit using this soap regularly.

    Has Proraso Green changed?

    I recently bought a 400ml bottle with the old branding - I think it's the same as the stuff in the new shaped 100ml bottles, but I haven't compared ingredients.

    Ach. Brito Mogno, a new Old School classic

    That sounds like a good match! Shame I can't find it in the UK!

    Who here shaves every day?

    5-6 days a week if I'm working from the office. Every other day if I'm working from home.

    Ach. Brito Mogno, a new Old School classic

    Thanks for the review Marco! I've just received my bar of Mogno. The scent is fantastic! Does anybody know of a splash that would pair well with it?

    Cella Blue Bio Cream in the Tube Question

    I've just finished a tub. When I got it last December it was a cream, by the end it was quite firm, so I mixed some water into it and it went back to its original form. You might be able to do the same with the tube by sucking some water into it.

    I need a new grinder

    I recently bought a 1zpresso JX manual grinder. It's brilliant! Really consistent, fast, and well priced compared other high end hand grinders. I've used it for espresso, Aeropress and French press and had great results.
