Sharko Week is officially over, but, as I
neglected my tonsorial duties these past
two days, I thought it fitting to risk one
last swim in Sharko's bloody waters.

Thanks, BigJ, for getting this whole week
organized and ginning up the excitement
and the all-important participation.

Stay healthy, everyone!

SOTD #184/2021


Preshave: frigid tap water, PAA The Cube 2.0
Brush: Razorock Big Bruce
Soap: Eleven ~ Orange
Razor: Mühle R41 GS
Blade: Polsilver Stainless (vintage)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Stirling Soap ~ Orange Chill AS/ witch hazel.

Survived Shark Week without further wounds. So today's shave finally was dedicated to the vintage Polsilver Stainless. 2 days worth of growth called for an efficient razor.

Overall, a very nice first outing, I hope the blade will retain its sharpness for a bunch of shaves... I like it thus far.

Happy shaves, y'all!

Switched over to the Wolfman. This time I am using a Personna Lab blade. The Kent BK8 did a nice job of making lather and feels so soft on my face. A wonderful BBS shave. Have a great day, gents.

Brush: Shavemac 20/47 Silvertip 2-Band
Soap: Bignoli Liquirizia e Menta
Razor: RazoRock Lupo 95 GT Special
Blade: Shark Super Chrome (5)
ASL: Licorice and Mint SHOCKER [home brew]

An excellent shave. :biggrin:

The soap's fab, but the licorice thing is only an occasional special treat (daily would be OTT for me).

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
BRUSH: Omega 31064 (same as 81064) boar (25/59 mm)
SOAP: Proraso green, cream
RAZOR: Merkur 34 G (Derby Extra)
A/S: Alun, Epsilon Blue Mediterranian
COMMENT: I think the Omega 31064 (81064) boar is a bit overlooked -- I rarely see other mention it, but I find it to be an outstanding brush..!! You don't get the backbone that otherwise distinguishes boar bristle. Instead, you get a super soft "boar hug" type brush, with a fantastic acrylic octagonal handle, and this brush comes with a really good stand too. I usually don't deal much with very soft brushes, but this one is really brilliant. I like using it with creams, which I don't use very often either. Today with Proraso green, a menthol-head shave, topped off with Epsilon Blue Mediteranian, loaded with menthol too ... it's summer, alright...!

Today is a travel shave. It was supposed to be fast and pleasant, in this case I don't have to use very efficient razors. But a good shave anyway ... I only had 15 minutes.

As always, shave the head and face.
