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...

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.
I'll add here the ones from the weekend too...
