This was an incredible shave: Rooney, Timeless Bronze OC .78, B&M Bay Rum (Omnibus base), and Atomic Age Bay Rum. This was my first time using the Omnibus base and it is outstanding.

SOTD - Sunday - Jan 9, 2022

Razor:
Edwin Jagger Kelvin - mild but effcient, short handle and maneuverable
Blade: Gillette Nacet (3) - sharp & smooth winner
Brush: Frank Shaving G4 Synthetic 24mm - soft tips, dense high backbone, lather monster
Pre-Shave: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar, VDH Shave Butter - super slick razor glide
Soap: Mike's Barber Shop - smells good, lathers easily, stable, creamy lather, the hype is real
Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman A/S - classic barber shop scent, great finish
Growth: 54 hours
Passes: WTG, XTG, ATG, touchup
Rating: 9.7/10

Results: The Edwin Jagger Kelvin is an excellent razor. It's #3 on my Top 5 DE razors. 2nd shave with the OG Artisan. Mike's been making quality shaving soap since 2011. Relaxing Sunday afternoon shave with Mike's Natural Shaving Soap. Fresh and clean Barber Shop scent. Beef Tallow and Kokum Butter make a creamy lather with good cushion. Shea Butter and Lanolin give excellent post shave feel. Outstanding performer. Sharp blade, mild razor and great soap delivers a BBS result. Great shave!

Gem and MdC Monday SOTD a luxury shave, two and 1/2 passes with some clean up to get to BBS-, very close, very smooth, just a tiny bit of stubble I missed, and no mishaps:

Pre-shave: nice hot shower
Razors: ER Streamline- a marvelous shaver, just right for Monday morning; I forget how nice these razors shave- easy, smooth, fairly mild, but feels solid and very effective
Blade: GEM PTFE (5)- what's to say- these blades just work well, especially after a few shaves
Brush: Shavemac Beagle
Soap: MdC Oroginal- a fine preforming soap that made a great lather
Post-shave: cold rinse, then TOBS Luxury Herbal AS cream- smooth, soft and great feeling face and neck

Have a great week!
