SE SOTD- What was your tool of choice today?

Razor: Yaqi 50 Light Weight Head and Custom Handle
Blade: Blade that came with it [1]
First shave with razor and the blade that ships with it.
A full week of stubble and it mowed right through.
Two pass BBS
I didn't like the feel of the handle so I chose one that I like to match it.

Interesting soap. Quite easy to load, very light pleasant scent, kinda airy type but wow...the lather is really slick...
Shave with razor paired with another Proline blade this time from another kind member in the UK forum. Quite good...smooth and comfortable for 3passes without any issues resulting in a mostly bbs finish. Somehow I still prefer the guarded AC blades. The Stirling Witchhazel as AS is terrific! Rating 9.6/10
There will be blood 🩸!
Razor: Blackland Vector SB
Blade: Kai Captain Titan Mild Pink (1)
Brush:pAA Amber Aerolite
Soap: VITOS Extra Super
Post: Thayers WH Aloe
Aftershave: Captain’s Choice Nor’Easter

The shave: 2 WTG and an ATG for face and neck. First shave with an unguarded blade. JK about the blood, just 1 small pinprick on chin that closed up before the post shave routine. Very smooth DFS shave. Wanted to see how the neck did irritation wise on my 2 trouble spots, no issues...looks very promising. Loving the VITOS Extra Super, going to use it for the rest of the week.
Stay safe & have fun.
