Soap Yaqi Green
Brush Yaqi 24mm Mountain Lake 2 Band Badger
Razor Kamisori Shavette
Blade Feather Professional 7th Use
Aftershave Yaqi Green Splash.
Nice enough soap and matching splash for the scent and lather qualities.
This razor is best for travel and paired with the blade provided a very nice, fast, easy, smooth, comfortable & efficient shave. 3passes for a mostly dfs finish. Super!
Karve brass with E plate (polished cap)
Yaqi 24mm synth
Cptn's choice bowl
Perma Sharps (Gillette)
Mammoth hygge soap and balm

Holy cow! First time breaking into my Perma sharp stash. I've had a 100 pack just stored for a while, and I'm sad I never got around to trying them! 3 pass BBS w/zero irritation. Amazing.

I think this fits, Gents

Martin Rubin
Razor: Executive #6
Blade: Van Der Hagen (4)
Brush: Shavemac 22/50
Soap: PdP 63
ASL: the "Veg"

I only shaved my cheeks with the Martin Rubin, as I didn't get the PdP 63 hydrated enough at first and the razor was sticking to my face more than it was cutting.

I also bumped the setting from #5 to #6 during the shave, as I think the VDH blade is starting to lose it's edge.

That or the lather just wasn't slick enough.

The Witch hazel had less of a sting than expected, the "Veg" burned a bit as usual, with Nivea balm a soothing finish.
