SOTD FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19, 2021

I’m definitely looking forward to nicer weather. Woke up to sleet this morning. So I decided to break out the Stirling Obsidian Glacial Soap and AS. Last night I touched up my A. Witte Copperhead 6/8 on my jasper stone with a series of successively diluted slurries and finished in water. It had begun to tug during my last shave with it. This morning’s mug shave following the touch up was glorious. Three lather sweeping passes easily put the baby to bed! Whenever I use this soap it reminds me of my grandmother’s anisette cookies. The noggin shave with my Karve E_OC finished the morning shave ablutions with two smooth ATG passes leaving me clean, cool, velveteen smooth, and quite refreshed. The Stirling Obsidian Glacial AS Splash set the tone for the day! I wish all my shave brothers and sisters a good day despite the stinky weather! Spring is just around the corner!

RAZOR: A. Witte Copperhead 6/8 (Mug), Karve E_OC Plate (Dome)
BLADE: Feather DE
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: MrEE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot #007
SOAP: Stirling Obsidian Glacial
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with Glyce Glycerin soap followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Stirling Obsidian Glacial AS Splash.

Preshave: frigid tap water.
Brush: WestCoastShaving Two Tone Tall 26/56
Soap: Stirling Soap ~ Executive Man
Razor: Razorock German 37
Blade: Gillette Wilkinson Sword China (19)
Postshave: frigid tap water, S'Oliver ~ Follow your Soul AS & EdT.

Shave #19 with the chinese made Gillette Wilkinson Sword.
Yesterday's shave wasn't pleasant at all (rough like sandpaper), but today the blade is back on track(switched razors today).

Had an excellent and smooth shave with a pleasant level of comfort. Just a tad of roughness. After having completed three passes and some minor touch ups, my face felt "oil on glas"-like. The German 37 basically never fails to meet my expectations, but today's shave even was better than expected.

Have a nice Friday!

Razor Yaqi DOC
Blade American Shave Platinum 3rd
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + Old Spice Original
Quite an interesting scent from the lather. Can't really place it except it's kinda heavy and rich like. Medium strength throughout. The quality is amazing...richly creamy and very slick from just a little. The post-shave feel is good too...
Shave with the razor and blade pairing is one of the best. Nicely smooth and comfortable for 3passes without any issues for a mostly BBS result!

Greetings,

(vintage SE razor Week)

A new shave set up to start the weekend....It's been a while since i last gave my vintage SE razors a run out starting the weekend off with my Ever-Ready 1914, as always it was a pleasure to shave with...The vintage Ever-Ready SE razors don't get the credit they so rightly deserve paired up with the Gem PTFE blade it mowed through my stubble with smooth efficiency...My fondness for the Eco Warrior shaving bar grows with each shave... A wonderful performing shaving soap that gives a superb post shave feel.

A very enjoyable 3 pass + pickups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Creightons Sensitive PSB.

My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
