Still my number 1 soap (especially matched with the AS)! Love the aromatic scent and thick creamy slick lather.
Shave with my 1st DE razor and the blade (end May 2019) was somehow not as smooth nor comfortable going atg on chin and lips area. Managed a bbs/dfs/ccf result. Excellent aftershave. Today's lead role is the Soap & AS. Rating 9/10

Really like your blade caddy. Is that it's original purpose?
William,
I'm glad you like it. I do not know the original purpose of my blade caddy, however it was likely to have been used for either salt and pepper packets, or sugar packets, or possibly toothpicks. It was one of those cheep thrift store finds that found a new home. If the blade fits, use it.

Pre:-
Razor: pre war Gold Tech
Brush: G3 Pure
Blade: Minora Platinum 1st use
Soap: Colonel Conk Bay Rum
Post: generic Witch Hazel, TOBS Bay Rum
Result: DFS+ no nicks/weepers/irritations

Hmm I feel a bit let down. I anticipated a WOW as when I used the Polsilver but the first shave felt just nice and not exceptional. To much bias and expectations on my side I guess. Let’s see how the next shaves are going. It’s smooth and sharp but so are many other PPI blades.

Soap: Ach Brito Mogno shaving cream
Brush: Yaqi Sagrada Familia 24mm
Razor: Merkur 41c 1904 open comb
Blade: Shark stainless steel #3
After: Humphrey's Witch Hazel + Agua Brava

I'm loving the Mogno, it's very easy to make a great lather with this shaving cream, providing good cushion and slickness. Besides that, I love the smell, if only Ach Brito made an ASL to go with it... Anyway, I find it to go very well with Agua Brava. This razor + blade combo works like a charm IMO. 9.5/10.
