Sunday’s Shave

Going with GD RC Mallard Soap today. The brush was my Uomo da Vinci 290 Silvertip badger – one nice brush. The razor was my RR Aluminum Stealth Slant loaded with a Wizamet Super Iridium blade. After a four-pass shave, I used cool water to remove any excess lather. I then applied Thayers Rose Petal WH followed by Clubman. The fragrance today was GFT Sandalwood.

Razor - Mergress Adjustable
Blade - Astra SS
Brush - Paladin PK-47 "Graphite" 26mm 2-band select badger
Soap - Catie's Bubbles Waterlyptus
A/S - Hawaiian Shaving Co Lemon Lavender

Excellent! I am loving this Mergress! Such a smooth adjustable. It shaves so well. I started off loading the brush a good deal; CB loads really easily. Ended up with the best lather I've gotten from Catie's; creamy, shiny, thick stuff, great glide and residual. Brush felt great, firm, good splay, lovely scrub. The Astra in the razor went to work with super smooth action. Started at setting 3, second pass 2.5, and these settings were just about perfect for me. And boy does this razor sing! It is loud. I actually really enjoyed the audio feedback, it really added to the experience. I ended up with more redness on part of my neck, probably because I wasn't being careful enough with the new method I've been using. But the shave was really close and smooth, and my face feels awesome.
