Razor - Above the Tie Atlas R1
Blade - Gillette 7 O'clock Green
Brush - Mojo Handcrafts 26mm tuxedo
Soap - PAA Space Nog
A/S - Brickell unscented

I had to use Space Nog again because, so good. I love this rich scent, and the lather was shiny, wet, and fantastic. The razor cruised through it, blade performed very well and my face is so smooth and comfortable. Terrific shave.

Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: WestCoastShaving Two Tone Tall Synthetic 26/56
Soap: Tcheon Fung Sing ~ Danidevile Revolution
Razor: Razorock GC .84 Jaws
Blade: Rapira Platinum Lux(2)
Postshave: frigid tap water, Majestät AS.

TFS is quite under the radar on this site, but given today's performance TFS deserves more attention. At least Danidevil Revolution provided a rock solid performance today. Had a lovely shave... and a damn close one.

Enjoy your Sunday!

My youngest grandson, Nate (age 3), is coming over to make Kifli, an Austrian-Hungarian killer pastry cookie, with his grandfather and grandmother this afternoon. So, despite the gloomy weather, I pulled out two of my favorite shavers, my Eclipse Red Ring safety razor for the dome, and my R. Saito SK3 7/8 smiling straight razor for the mug! After building my two usual MWF lathers, I launched right into a slow, leisurely three pass (WTG, ATG, XTG) mug shave. The Saito is such a great razor to shave with. It always feels like I’m just scooping away the lather with this razor. I took my time, and ended up with a velveteen smooth face. The Red Ring is an incredibly efficient safety razor as well. It is easily the equivalent of my R41 without the same blade feel. Two pleasant passes (ATG, ATG) left my dome exactly the way I like it. This was such a great shave I may repeat it tomorrow with my lime software. I feel clean, velveteen and refreshed.

RAZOR: R. Saito SK3 7/8 (Mug), Eclipse Red Ring (Dome)
BLADE: Feather DE
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: Alpha Shaving T-400 Tribute with 26mm Two Band Badger Ferrule
SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme Balm.
