Oumo 24mm SHD Manchurian - Stirling Sheep - RazoRock Hawk V3 OC/Proline P - 4711 AS

The first shave with my newly acquired Hawk V3....and what a shave it was!
2 passes with no weepers and a BBS finish......and the alum test was passed with flying colours. I am looking forward to getting to know this razor. Very impressed after only one outing!

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Shavemac 3-band Silvertip Badger
Soap: APR Bay City
Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: Vintage NOS Gillette Spoiler(1)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Bootleggers El Dorado Aftershave Splash
Scent: Portus Cale Black EdT

A very nice 3 pass shave with my favourite Bay Rum soap. The fresh Spoiler blade, inexorably clamped by the precise tolerances of the WR1, was as buttery smooth as it was deadly efficient.

Nice nice scent from the soap. Good enough lather. Shave with razor paired with new blade. Initial feel...smooth, sharpish and comfortable. Almost did not feel the blade. Another nice blade from Czech similar to the Tiger. 3 multiple passes enough for a real close result. Rating 9/10
