Twenty-first shave with the Sharp Star Platinum blade #1
Razor: Fatip Lo Storto Originale (aka FOCS)
Brush: Yaqi Aqua 24mm Tuxedo
Soap: Pré de Provence Bergamot and Thyme
All aspects of today's outing were fantastic!
The FOCS/Sharp Star combo was superb, today, as I enjoyed an extremely quick and easy autopilot shave. Frankly, I'm astonished by how quickly it was over. In no time at all, my face was Baby Butt Smooth and surprisingly refreshed. This is profoundly gratifying considering the abuse that my face took from the Silver Stars previously!
I've mentioned before that this blade glides well over my skin and feels very efficient to me. Therefore, I don't have to spend as much time scraping away at my beard. Most importantly, it helps to minimize how much buffing I need to do to get to the closeness that I prefer. This definitely increases the overall comfort level (which was top-notch, today).
Meanwhile, the performance of the Yaqi Aqua Tuxedo/PdP B&T duo was far superior to that of yesterday's brush/soap pairing. This undoubtedly played a major role in today's outstanding outcome. In my opinion, it would be hard to improve on this shave. So, if I was scoring my shaves, I'd have to give this a 10 out of 10.
