SV Saturday

Razor:
Muhle Rocca R94
Blade: Perma Sharp (1)
Brush: Muhle Rocca R94 STF
Soap: SV Desert Vetiver
A/S: Davidoff Cool Water
Post Shave: Nivea Hyaluron Gel

Tonight for SV Saturday I got to work on the Desert Vetiver. Another use of the Rocca set which is now proving to be my favourite setup, not just because of the great shaves, but also due to it's simply stunning looks. I started my last Perma Sharp blade after binning my last one after 14 shaves and was rewarded with a BBS finish, so much so that when wet my face squeaked when I ran a finger over it.

Saturday 22nd June, shave #174

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Saponificio Varesino Opuntia
Brush: Yaqi 24mm synthetic cashmere
Razor: Rockwell 6S R5, Ti Handle, Astra #2
Bowl: Turkish copper
Post-shave: Nivea Balm

I chose Opuntia for SV Saturday. Used the Rockwell for a change, and got a very comfortable near-BBS. The run-in blade probably helped.

Razor:
Muhle Rocca R94
Blade: Perma Sharp (2)
Brush: Muhle Rocca R94 STF
Soap: ZM Explorer
A/S: Davidoff Cool Water
Post Shave: Nivea Hyaluron Gel

Tonight it was back to 3017ing Explorer and I did rush a little tonight so instead of getting a BBS all over I had a little rough patch left on my neck.i am still enjoying the soap and Rocca set and this bodes well when I am just down to my best soaps I will probably find it easier to 3017 them than harder.
 
Sunday 23rd June, shave #175

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Palmolive Stick, made into a puck
Brush: Yaqi 24mm synthetic cashmere
Razor: Rockwell 6S R5, Ti Handle, Astra #2
Bowl: Turkish copper
Post-shave: Nivea Balm

Stayed with the Rockwell for Palmolive day. An easy near-BBS again, despite the effects of hay fever.

It competes well with Game Changers on shaving comfort.
