Badgerary Shave 27. I skipped a day yesterday so I used my M7 Manchurian today. This brush is more comfortable if my face has had a day off from shaving.

Badger OTD + SE SOTD, Saturday, January 28th 2023

Razor : Ever-Ready Streamline, 2nd generation- Mfg 1949-53, upper mid range, well built and it is eye candy to myself, it was one of the high end Ever-Ready razors they built. excellent shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE(10) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Razorock Classic, nice cherry almond scent with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Sagrada Familia"22mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent splay scrubber, great lather painter. Small handle might not be for large hands + great knot and one of my favorite badger brushes to use .
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + slight irritation + no weepers=:a17: excellent shave on my Ever-Ready streamline razor with a coated Gem blade. I toss the Gem blade after 10 uses regardless how well it is cutting because I averaged this blade years ago and this one needed to be tossed.

Have some great shaves!
Twenty eighth day using a badger in January and completing four weeks and four times through each of my badgers. I'll use the remaining three days of the month to use my favorites. Today the APShave Mistura. Nice little brush. A bit on the small side for my tastes. Will make a good give-away brush next time I have opportunity to do so.

Ask me about shaving naked!
Badgerary 28th: Hardware was a Wee Scotty in lemon drop. Scott @life2short1971 sent me this pretty little handle to try out a knot, and its found a home. A perfect travel brush, small and with a 2-band knot that will lather a brick and blooms like an umbrella. I named it after its creator. A C.V. Hejestrand No 10 did the chopping, and the cream was Acca Kappa 1869 pre-reformulation. Think of Cella brick with lanolin. Harris Arlington finished up.
