    Excellent shave tonight!
    The soap is an old sample I had hardly used. Great stuff.. all that tallow in Stirling gives such an awesome lather and post shave feel. I’d forgotten what a high quality soap it truly is. No AS product needed tonight. This razor and blade combo is stellar, the razor handle is plastic and there’s a knob underneath the head to open it. A TTO of course.
    I assume that the blade gap is similar to many Super speeds...
    With a sharp blade it cuts nice and cleanly! I need to learn how to post photos. That’s why my posts have been just all text!
    It would be nice to show off some of the razors that I own...

    Soap: Stirling Lemon Chill
    Razor:Feather AS-D2
    Blade: Vintage NOS Wilkie Light Brigade (4)
    Post: Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel
    Scent: APR Festivus P&C 2018 LE Splash

    Pre Paste & Cut Perth Meet-up shave.
    Lovely cooling mentholated lather from the Stirling soap. I am falling back in love with my AS-D2 - it is such a precise instrument, and with a sharp blade like the Light Brigade makes shaving so simple.
    Three super-comfortable passes for a DFS+.
    But no doubt, the star of the show was the APR Limited Edition P&C Festivus Splash. Made for the warm festive season in the Southern Hemisphere, and simply glorious! And the citrus notes matched the soap nicely.
