Sunday Shave 12.03.23
RAZOR: Muhle Tortoise Shell R103
BLADE: Gillette Nacet
RAZOR: Dscosmetic Z0 316L stainless steel
BLADE: Gillette Nacet
BRUSH: Heritage Collection Ever-Ready 500E Gel Bulb
LATHER: Ach Brito Mogno Shaving Soap
POST: Floid Suave Aftershave Splash

For this shave, I compared two very different versions of the venerable R41. I shaved with the Muhle R103 on the right side of my face and the ZO 316L on the left side – I’m sure you know where this is going.
After two basic passes with the R103 (WTG and ATG), the left side was a respectable DFS. And with two very careful passes with the Chinese clone (both WTG), the right side was also DFS, with one weeper.
The Dscosmetic Z0 316L is not to be trifled with!

This soap is creamy and slick, and together with the splash, smells wonderful!
This razor is just awesome! It's already good with the diamond balsa 'laser' edge but my face prefers a natural edge nowadays so put it through the HBA. Wow! Feels more comfortable and yet still very keen...I like it even better now!

This is the third shave with the Wolfman WR2-SB – 1.05 loaded with a Wizamet blade. It was a smooth, close, and comfortable shave. I finally finished the MdC soap after 303 shaves. I have never gotten as many shaves with a puck or jar of soap. The soap was able to deliver a perfect lather with each shave. As you can see from the photo, the amount of soap I had to work with was small. In fact, the photo makes it appear there was more soap than actual. I had to remove the bit of soap and put it in the shaving bowl. Have a great day and week, folks.

Razor : Yaqi Excalibur SE AC type with a Milano SSP handle- Mfg 2021>, tame mid range. Simple clamping system + small head parts (I assemble on wash cloth, a lot easier!)

I have been experimenting with my Excalibur razor and my newest Romulus razor for peak performance. Had a stellar close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Schick proline P30 (2), sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Razorock Santa Maria del Fiore, nice vanilla light tobacco scent with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "coat tails"24 mm G5 synthetic. Excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. Closest synthetic feel to a 2 or 3 band badger I own.
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 : Santa Maria del Fiore with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 10 stellar.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a stellar close comfortable shave this morning with my Yaqi Excalibur AC type 50 mm razor with a Schick proline blade. Excellent shave this Sunday morning.

Have some great shaves!
Sunday Morning Salutations

Third shave with this Empire and the Schick Injector Blade. It has smoothed out a bit. I choked up on the handle a bit as the Empire has a somewhat of a wonky head heavy balance point. Short, light strokes produced a fine shave. Of course the slickness of the Tabac helped immensely.
