Apparently, winter came here, stayed for a couple of days, gave up and left. Another warm and sunny morning, in this part of the southern hemisphere.
So, I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip to the Virgin Islands. Stirling Bay Rum and Pinaud Clubman VIBR with Semogue SOC Mistura, Green Cult 2.0 plate II and Gillette Silver Blue (5). To finish in style, Guerlain Homme EdT.

I'm usually one of the Slantember early birds, but I just can't seem to drag myself away from my Blackbird. I aim to sharpen my willpower and get at least one slant shave in before the end of the month, Jim (@Chan Eil Whiskers).

5 out of 5 again tonight, the new Timeless Bronze was great only wish I had opted for a Feather blade, but I figured new razor I probably shouldn’t try that but during the shave it just felt like it was needed, the razor has a very different feel on the face than anything I’ve tried over the years and it just seems like a super sharp blade would make it perfect.

Last summer shave and the beginning of the 2023 autumn equinox.
A comfortable smooth shave to finish the summer off in style.
Throughout the week the Wilkinson Sword Classic blade has performed superbly throughout the week feeling smooth & efficient...I will carry on using them next week.
The Vie-Long shave stick/horsehair brush duo performed wonderfully providing a slick protective lather for the full shave without re-apply it to my face.
The performance & post shave feel from this shave stick is absolutely superb. A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave with no errors to report.

A wonderfully aromatic, rich, creamy, and slick lather whip-up by the excellent brush. Love the splash...wish the scent could last. A very enjoyable shave with this razor, the edge was buttery smooth and crisply keen...
