Monday shave

Brush: Simpsons Chubby 2 best badger
Razor: Gem Micromatic Open Comb, shave #10
Blade: Gem Carbon, #1
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid-> Clubman Pinaud Reserve Whiskey Woods aftershave

Two-passes, mostly DFS, with moderate feedback from the alum. The Gem Carbon is miles better than the Gem Stainless, but not as good as the Gem PTFE so far. It is definitely usable so I'll keep on with it and see if I can finish out my time with the MMOC with it installed.

Man, what a soap. Such an unusual scent, and so excellent. Tremendous lather, and the shave was wicked close. The splash lasted well throughout the day too.

Brush Yaqi 26mm Moka Express
Razor Karve Brass SB-D
Blade PearlMax Super Platinum (turns out to be Super Stainless)
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + Clubman Whisky Wood
Superb lather performance from the soap. Thickly creamy and slick. The scent is unique too.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was just ok. The blade is not as smooth nor comfortable but can be used to complete 3passes without any issues for a dfs+ to ccs result. Excellent post & aftershaves. Rating 9/10
