SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 15th - March 21st, 2021



Brush: Semogue Torga-C3 Finest Mistura 22/49
Soap: TFS Mandarino Tachibana
Razor: Wolfman WR2-SB 1.25 head on a "Worlds Finest" handle
Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (6)
ASL: Clubman

A Zen shave. :sorcerer:

Everything went well. I was paying attention but not concentrating. :smartass:

Clubman ASL is becoming my favorite. I would like it more if it had some chill, but I'm wary of adding menthol to my tiny bottle as it might upset its strange but addictive scent. Decisions, decisions. :001_rolle

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

• Some feedback with the alum
- Weeper on lip. Nicked mole on neck but due to its size, I nick it regularly so no real deduction

First shave with Silver Star blade. Great blade that is smooth and sharp, can see why it gets so much love on B&B. Quite the difference between this blade and the Kai blades I’ve used last 8 shaves, the Kai felt noticeable less sharp and tugged constantly.

Always love my Murphy and McNeil sets, there’s a reason they are my favourite brand and bases. My wife and I love Garda Siochana, fantastic aquatic scent!
