Brush: "Roma" by Omega
Soap: Grooming Dept "Melody" (Janus base)
Razor: Smart-Helix "Apollo Light" (0.50 base-plate)
Blade: Super-max "Blue Diamond" (Platinum)
Aftershave: Rasozero "Spittero"

Weird shave I must admit, I had to change the blade in the middle of a shave to the Feather because super-max was tugging a little bit too much for my taste. Also, the soap lathers a little bit differently from everything I have so it took me like 10 minutes before I started actually shaving. Other than that it was a very nice shave. I love the smell of the soap and the aftershave.

For the sunday shave I tried a sample of Sapones Joserra Céfiro, croap and ASL. Very good stuff, creamy and protective lather, good slickness, great scent and good post-shave feeling. The ASL perfectly matches the scent and leaves the skin moisturized and in great condition. The razor is a Gillette Super Adjustable 109 from 1976 (W3). 7 O'Clock green blade and a Semogue badger brush. Have a nice Sunday.

SOTD SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 28, 2021

Here we are on the last morning of February. It’s raining and hopefully the white snow blanket on my property melts in the rainy 45°F temperature. Patina is defined “as a surface appearance of something grown beautiful with age”. Vintage item collectors differ on appreciating the degree of its presence or absence, but for certain things it just seems right.

My old Sheffield cast steel French Point H. Boker 5/8 is one of them. A bright shiny blade on this almost two century old masterpiece just wouldn’t seem right. The softer cast steel does require more frequent refreshes, but the refreshed edge is always buttery smooth and a joy to shave with. The three pass mug shave this morning put the baby to bed and confirmed why this particular straight resides in my favorite 7 day set.

My Ronson safety razor is another that never fails to please! Owners use modified DE blades or regular Schick injectors. The DE modification is similar to that required for the use of an original Gibbs #15 or #17 adjustable, and can be accomplished with metal nippers or grooming scissors, although continued use put the scissors option out of commission. I like Schick B-20 injector blades myself.

The weighted head in this little safety razor masterpiece always delivers a superb two pass dome shave as it did this morning. This morning’s noggin shave checked all the boxes. I like to hold the razor by the ring at the very bottom end of its short handle. It shaves almost as well as my GE Jones Shake Sharps. I feel refreshed, clean, and velveteen!

RAZOR: H. Boker French Point 5/8 (Mug), Ronson Safety Razor (Dome)
BLADE: Schick B-20 Proline Injector
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: Alpha Shaving T-400 with Hybrid Knot Ferrule
CREAM: Castle Forbes Lime
POSTSHAVE: Cold water rinse with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme AS Balm.
