SOTD 25-Mar

Brush: C&H 'Eyespot' V18
Soap: Speakeasy
Razor: Koraat 6/8
Post: Speakeasy AS & EDP

Wonderful shave this morning after a brief refresh last night. Seemed to do the trick and bring it back, though I did get a bit of feedback from the AS, clearly out of practice.

Nice finish and ready for the weekend to kick off.

Hope everyone has a cracking day!


Sorry no Canadian again, but as most of today's gear is from the UK and Canada is part of the Commonwealth, I think it counts. BBS in 3, damn the streamline is just brilliant.


And the AS is superb too. I can't describe the scent just that it complements the Culmak really well. It's a flowery but really delicate scent and great on the freshly shaved skin.

Going to the next razor in my rotation: a Mergress XL. I loaded the Mergress with a fresh Personna Medical Prep blade. As usual, the combo worked. Today is the 54th shave with MdC. Another perfect shave. Have a good day and weekend, folks.

SOTD March 25th
SV Saturday
Semogue Saturdays

Hello friends,

Beautiful autumnal Saturday morning. Perfect to finish off a 3-day beard. In that sense, nothing better than get my tub of Saponificio Varesino and call the Fantastic Four: Merkur, Gillette, Semogue and Williams. What a team!
Aqua Velva Ice Blue paired surprisingly well with the aquatic aromas of the SV 70th Anniversary. Progress (5/4/3) was perfect with Nacet (2) and SOC Mistura my friends, it is an indescribable brush…

To accompany me on this journey towards Paradise, I invited my old friend Dexter.

Have a nice weekend and great shaves!
❤️ 🪒
