SE Sunday shave, January 28th 2024

Razor : Yaqi SE Excalibur with a Yaqi Milano 316 SSP- Mfg 2021>, mild to tame mid range. Small head parts make it interesting to assemble, I assemble on a wash seems to be safest. Simple clamping system make for a great secure blade. One of my favorite SE razors.
Blade : Schick proline(2) sharp and smooth + reasonable longevity.
Soap : Ogallala Bayrum sage and cedar, nice Bayrum scent with great lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger. Excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. One of my better badgers that I enjoy + great handle.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Ogallala Bayrum + Saddle wood splash :001_wub: some clove scent + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Yaqi Excalibur with a Schick proline blade.

1st use of this rare & unique soap & splash. Can't seem to find any info on the set even at The Club site. The lather was terrific and the scent... citrusy-ale-like. Love it...especially the bottle...!!
This razor provided an excellent shave. Refreshed on the 0.1um balsa and HBA...the edge was smooth and crisply keen...
