Preshave: shower, frigid tap water

Post shave: frigid tap water, Stirling Soap ~ Orange Chill AS and witch hazel.

Three side by side passes with a BBS result on both halfes of my face. One tiny nick with the Karve, none with the Mühle. The Karve shows a tad more smoothness whilst the Mühle R41 is heavier on the blade feel side. No tugging with these razors in the atg passes.

Have some great shaves, y'all!

Back to the cream today. The PK 47 did a fine job in making lather. Plus, it feels great on my face. A new razor today: the bronze Karve with the C plate. A nice, smooth shave.

Hey Jim, possible typo? Trumper's in image, Captains in spreadsheet? Or are you testing to see if we're paying attention? 😉

Nice lather from the soap...aromatic cigarish tobacco scent with good slickness too. Overdone it abit...hahaha
Shave with razor paired with this blade was an enjoyable, smooth and comfortable session. 3passes without any issues for a mostly bbs finish. Matching aftershave is good but abit mild...hmmm...
