2nd of RazoRock Soap used. Now this is a better scent...much better than yesterday's Blue BarberShop. Still...scent is too mild..wish it was stronger. The lather created however was WOW! Took some time and much water but the result was terrific...super thick & creamy! Slick too!
Shave with razor paired with blade was nice, smooth and comfortable...auto-cruise. Not as efficient but enjoyable. 3+1 multiple passes without issues and DFS++ results. Face felt nicely moisturized after all the post & aftershaves. Rating 9.5/10

Todays's shave starts off with Big Shave Southwest soap made by PAA. The CK-formula of this soap does not contain tallow but provides a superior lather and shave. The brush was made by Rudy Vey and contains a Shavemac D01 two-band knot. The razor is a Wolfman SS SB WR 2 with a Wizamet Super Iridium blade. The aftershave was Thayers Rose Petal WH followed by Neutrogena Triple Protect. The fragrance was GFT Sandalwood which I will have to replace soon.
 
Parker Variant razor
Super Max Diamond Edge blade (1)
PAA Scentsless pre-shave
PAA The Beach soap
TNS Chess 25mm Boss synthetic brush
Doug Smith Pottery shave mug
Osma alum block
Nivea Sensitive aftershave balm
Captains Choice Lime aftershave

First time lathering with the brush, and it was a stellar lather and a great, close shave.
