SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 8th - March 14th, 2021

Saturday shave


Prep: Cleansing Story White Clay foam
Cream: ToBS Jermyn Street
Brush: EJ Best Badger
Razor: RazoRock Mamba 70, #4
Blade: Astra SP, #4 and binned
Post: alum -> hyaluronic acid -> Stirling Blu aftershave

Two passes for DFS on my face and SAS on my neck. Some feedback and irritation on my neck. An okay shave but nothing to write home about.
Sunday shave


Prep: Curology Cleanser
Soap: NO BarrBarr
Brush: Omega Mixed Midget
Razor: RazoRock Mamba on titanium halo handle, #4
Blade: Astra SP, #4 and binned
Post: alum -> hyaluronic acid -> NO BarrBarr aftershave

Two passes + neck touch ups for DFS on my face and CCS on my neck. Zero feedback and irritation. A very pleasant shave indeed. I swapped in the titanium handle from the Mamba 70, but it didn’t seem to make a noticeable difference.


You are a lucky man Jeff. Lucky to not have had a stroke, and lucky to have a wife who knows the sumptoms. My btother at the same age had the same symptoms and he had suffered a mild stroke.
On a brighrer note, that's a great pic. Phone or camera?
Thanks, Jim! I always use my phone.

Result: BBS

Great shave today I pushed a bit for BBS and got it - this time even without a weeper!
The brush is very approachable: soft tips, nice scrub, good density without hogging lather, medium backbone and splays easy. Whereas the D01 Two Band can be a bit overwhelming in regards to backbone and scrub, this one works so fine and uncomplicated that it is borderline boring in a good way. I have a feeling that I will grab this brush in the future when I want to focus on other parts of the setup and just want a brush that offers near effortless excellent results. In this regards it is a lot like my Semogue Mistura with a bit less backbone. Lookwise it’s an absolute stunner :c9: and I’m very happy with it.
