Mon 5th SR SOTD
Soap Arko Stick
Brush Yaqi 28mm Tuxedo
Razor Dorko Solingen 7/8 Near Wedge
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel Orange Chill + Hyaluronic + Old Spice Original
The ever-reliable soap! Nice pleasant scent, creamy and slick lather perfect for SR...
Should have been a GEM Monday but ever since my straight razors are honed up...I am like a kid just learning how to cycle...can't get enough...hahaha
The shave with this Dorko was uneventful and managed to get 3passes for a ccs to sas result without any issues within 30mins (morning workday rush). Hmmm...strangely, somehow I prefer that ZY430 yesterday...hahaha!
Aftershaves were awesome.

Using Haslinger Coconut, tallow formula soap for the second day in a row. The Red Tip did a nice job of knocking down the whiskers. A very comfortable, BBS shave. Have a good week, gents.

Pre-shave: Truefit & Hill
Soap: A&E, Asian Pear
Brush: Maison Lambert 100% Silvertip Badger, Faux Horn
Razor: ATT Windsor, SSR1, Satin/Matte
Blade: Personna Red, Israeli
Post shave: Jack Black

Result: Excellent shave (close to BBS)

Comments: A new combination of razor and blade. I like the blades and the razor, but despite the quality of the shave, I wasn’t fond of this combination. It was more efficient than some others, but not as smooth as I like. I can feel some slight irritation (not surprising). I doubt I will try this combination again.

Blades: Feather ProGuard (1) and
