Pleasant lather from the soap. Good bayrum scent and performance.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was good and enjoyable. Smooth and comfortable for 3passes without issues for a bbs to dfs result. Good post & aftershaves. Rating 9.7/10. One of my best vintage open comb razors this RFB!

Thank you gentlemen!

I am on the Wolfman waitlist to get my last WR2 1.15SB/WRH1 hallow basic brushed. I just sold my basic polished in this configuration. Too high maintenance to keep it clean!

A couple more years of this nice view and then off to the great unknown!

Soap Catie's Bubbles Ocean Grove
Brush Yaqi 26mm Mysterious Space Tuxedo
Razor Gillette British RFB
Blade Glatz Super Platinum 1st (Replaced)
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Ice Blue
Thick creamy lather. Acceptable slickness and scent were just below mild.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was not good. The blade was tuggy and skipping. Replaced with a 5th used Personna Med prep before any incident. 3passes with no issues for a dfs+ to ccs result. Rating 9/10
