Fantastic performance from this soap. The excellent brush whips a creamy, slick lather and smells good + the splash...even better. This razor for today's shave was just super...after stroping on the Kangaroo leather...the edge was soft buttery smooth and very efficient. 3passes for a bbs-dfs finish...

Razor: CG Gen 1 Level 3
Blade: Wizamet (Z-1)
Post: A&E Snake Venom AS

Nice shave this morning, growth was slow back after yesterday's straight so the level 3 was a bit of overkill.

Otherwise not much else to report, nice kick off to the week and with luck it'll continue to go just as well.

Hope everyone has a cracking day.

Third day using the Mergress XL and Med Prep combo. Today’s brush is the AP Shaving Tuxedo synthetic. I have had this brush for some time and it responds nicely to loading the bush and making nice lather. The MdC is being used for the 56th time. A perfect shave. Have a great day and week, folks.

Razor : Gem Junior bar, Mfg 1907-11, mild to tame mid range, well made to last a few more generations with a little care, made from brass sheet stamped and pressed very accurately to form a beautiful looking and functional razor even to accurate standards of today IMO.

Soap : Razorock American Barber, sharp linear unique scent with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Red Zebra" 26mm snow leopard synthetic knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.

Have some great shaves!
Closing out the week with an insanely good shave.

Razor: Perfectwork Suzuki 66
Soap: MacDuff's Aspen Parkland unscented 🇨🇦
Brush: Parker badger
Post: MacDuff's Aspen Parkland unscented aftershave splash 🇨🇦

Three passes and as close to a perfect shave as you're gonna get. BBS almost everywhere and "only" DFS in the usual places.

I really really like this aftershave splash from MacDuff's. My only complaint is that it has a weird, off-putting smell when you first put it on, but that disappears in a few minutes. I’ve only ever used balms and moisturizers for post shave, so I didn’t have high hopes when a bottle of liquid arrived in the mail. As soon as I used it, my opinion changed!

Hello friends,

Cloudy Monday around here. Today, I opted for a classic shave: Edwin Jagger 89, Feather, Mitchell’s Wool Fat, Omega Jade and Lilac Vegetal.
It’s always good to remember what a wonderful razor the EJ89 is. The old-fashioned choice of a smooth razor and a sharp new blade always delivers enormous pleasure. Above all, comforted by the protection of MWF. And, well, as for Veggie, my friends, it looks like I'm one of the chosen. But, I must confess that now that I smell like cat pee, my dog is giving me the strangest look…

Accompanying this adventure, the great Bill Evans Trio.

Have a nice week and great shaves!
❤️ 🪒
