SE SOTD, Saturday, February 25th 2024

Razor : Ever-Ready 1914 (AKA=LLC) model with 1st generation blade stops- Mfg 1914-17, mid range. Excellent manufactured razor for that time ERA when stamping parts where the way companies mainly mfg. razors for the mass needs IMO. This razor still functions and looks good many generations later and should still last generations with some care. Had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (6) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest razor blade to handle.
Soap : Ogallala Bayrum, sage and cedar- interesting Bayrum lather to whip up in a bowl I found, good scent with great lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Orbital ring" 24mm boar bristle hair brush. Excellent lather generator, soft split end bristle hairs, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter.
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 & Sandalwood (some clove)splash + 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 Ever-Ready 1914 razor with a coated Gem blade.

Have some great shaves!
Sunday Morning Shave Soiree

ER 1914 is a monster shave. Two pass with a bit of clean up netted one great result.
TOBS Lime Zest with plenty of Pinaud Citrus Musk poured on left me refreshed.

Hello friends

Sunny Sunday here. I chose Ogallala Bay Rum for today's shave, a soap with a spectacular aroma and with the Semogue SOC Boar it produced a fantastic lather. Thanks to the generosity of my dear friend @Tanuki, I used the classic Pre-War Tech with a Gillette Nacet (12) which, after a dozen uses for OBIF, became a real feather (with a tiny f…). I finished with Pinaud Clubman VIBR. A splendid shave.

With us, Ben Webster meets Oscar Peterson.

Rating: 10

Have a nice week and great shaves!
