An excellent shave. :biggrin:

The Postie brought me a few small parcels today; a book, a shaving cream, a shaving soap (just used), and a razor (just used). I've always wanted to try the YUMA razor but could never find one. At last I found one and that's the one that landed today, all the way from sunny Turkey (at incredible expense, £7.42 shipped).

The fit and finish are as rough as a badger's tadger... but the shave was brilliant (one shave in, could it get even better than this?). (Although the fit and finish are shoddy, the blade aligns perfectly.) The whole unit, loaded, weighs in at 26.5g and the handle length is 71mm (wonderful [for me]).
The Cannabliss Santal soap and Whiskey Woods ASL mix is quite something. I'm still enjoying it now, two hours on. :letterk1:

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Result: Fantastic 3 pass shave that resulted in BBS with zero issues! 10 / 10, but would rate it higher if I could, one of the best shaves I’ve had. My wife commented on how BBS my face and neck was.

Thanks. I rarely cut myself but thats because I follow my own rules and I know to never try to get BBS on the lower portion of my neck but I had a good soap and felt like superman and whoops. 🤪
Yeah that is my problem, i get aggitated when feeling the slightest stump, then i go completely havoc :lol: Of course that is a ******* idea, as the only one suffering from that, will be myself :p Anyway, keep at it, keep the love for shaving :)

Soap Ariana & Evans Kaizen
Brush Yaqi 24mm Ruby Tuxedo
Razor Yaqi AC Brass
Blade KAI CT ProTouch MG 2nd (hmmm...this blade is somehow smoother & more efficient than the Feather Proguard)
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Hyaluronic + Bvlgari AS Balm & Edt
Gorgeous lather from the soap! Perfect today. Beautifully strong scent, thickly creamy, and very slick!
Perfect shave with this blade paired with the razor despite the alignment issue. Super silky-smooth and very comfortable in 3passes with some pickup without any issues for a BBS result. These KAI & Feather guarded blades are giving me the best shaves now...hahaha. I have yet to try the Feather Professional which is still waiting to bat. Marvelous aftershaves! Rating 10/10!
