Brush: AP Shave Co with 26mm Titanium synthetic knot
Preshave: Proraso Blue Preshave

(If this is too long for your reading you can skip of course or even if it was shorter you can always skip, this is just my thoughts after a shave )
First time using the Woflman WR2 SB 1.55 with the Darwin handle. I really enjoyed the Darwin handle! I thought I would need to get a hollow handle like a WRH1 or WRH2 hollow handle just to have something different with it the Woflman but there is no need for the hollow handle, the Darwin worked really well. It was comfortable in my hand, I could hold the end in my ringer finger or pinky without issue, went back and forth, mostly ended up on pinky but really easy to hold, gave a more nimble feel to the WR2, more weight towards the razor head but still overall a nice weight. I really did enjoy it so it looks nice and functions well.
The Nacet, only my 2nd time using this blade and it was good, sharp, smooth, no issues especially with this razor, so definitely keeping the 100 a bought, which is good.
My first time using a synthetic brush, one I got a on BST a while ago as a throw in with a razor as I was not sure about synthetics or even cared about brushes for that matter. I am use to badger so this was definitely different but I enjoyed using it. This know has a lot of backbone, like alot so that was good for me, I was able to generate very good lather without any issues took me a few minutes to adjust. It definitely is different than a badger or boar for sure as many have mentioned and the feedback I have gotten but this brush did work out for me, glad I tried it.
Proraso Blue I haven't used in about 1 year now so I did enjoy using it, preshave was good, lather from the tube was good, post shave balm was good, just like I remember it when I was just starting out on wetshaving.
Floid the Genuine, it was great as always but I did something different this time. That small bottle next to it as a glass bottle loaded up with more menthol, crushed menthol crystals and 10 drops of Stirling menthol drops. I first but on the Floid The Genuine then right after the Floid the Genuine with menthol, it was great! I love menthol and it really gave it a kicked, quite a kick but I liked it.
Overall great shave I enjoyed it., 1st pass WTG, 2nd pass WTG/XTG with touch ups, 3rd pass ATG leaving me a very nice DFS+/BBS with no cuts, nicks, weepers or irritation or I should say very little to the point where I call it zero.

I really love the AON base performance wise but this particular scent is meh.
It's supposed to be a classic barbershop scent but all I get is a musty aroma.
Like going down your basement after it hasn't been opened in a long time.
Very unfortunate but it is what it is.
