ES Claymore V1-Ikon B/Dog handle & Kai CT Protouch MG [ 12 ]

Am rather pleased at how this Shave went, despite Two days growth thanks to the creaminess of the Tabac lather I had no problems getting a very good close all round finish. I am totally won over by the way this guarded blade works for me, 12 very good Shaves without the slightest hint of mishap.

Razor: GEM Micromatic MMOC (hold flat against face)
Blade: GEM (Personna) PTFE (1st)
Brush: Henri et Victoria - High Mountain White Badger 22mm
Pre-Shave: Innisfree - Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam
Lather: Stirling - Hipster
Aftershave: Stirling - Hipster (Splash)


Tragically Hip
I’ve been wanting to try this Hipster soap for a while. Unfortunately I’m so naturally hip in real life that the soap didn’t even have a chance to register on me. The aftershave was a little better. A pleasing scent that is extremely gentle and inoffensive.
It’s always nice to break out a brand new GEM PTFE blade. Luckily the shaving instruction were printed on the top of the razor, so I had no excuse for screwing up the shave. Ahhhh…that brand new blade BBS feel.

Razor: Yaqi Excalibur SE, excellent tame mid range, light weight and very easy to manipulate for a large wide 50mm blade IMO. Good daily driver for some folks.
Blade: Chinese blue 50 mm, sharp and smooth, longevity ??. received these with a Shavette ordered months back.
Soap: Razorock XXX, nice clean scent when it dry's down + excellent lather qualities.
Brush: Yaqi lucky dice 26mm tuxedo knot synthetic, excellent lather generator with cloud like soft tips, great scrub + excellent lather painter. This handle would be ideal for large hands & has good ergonomics IMO.
Pre Shave : Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Razorock XXX with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = :a17: Excellent shave with my Yaqi Excalibur SE + a Chinese blue blade.
