    Stirling Sandpiper today. 20 seconds to load the Cowboy Classic/Whipped Dog Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Gillette “Spoiler” SS still in the Gillette Fat Boy. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Stirling Sandpiper aftershave.

    AAFE999F-CAD7-443F-A021-48EAAE23E0B2.jpeg Love the Super Speeds! Today is a true favourite in the 1956 Red Tip SS. This completes the SS trio and what a way to do it. Some state that this razor is aggressive however, I find it quite efficient and just about perfect for my beard and face. I really enjoyed the Dorco Platinum so I decided to throw it in the Red Tip for today’s go.

    Today’s soap choice fell to Stirling Tuscany with the matching AS. Performance is all Stirling so excellent to say the least. Scent is quite nice and light to medium strength off the tub. The Simpson 59 made quick work of creating a lather indeed. Lovely stuff.

    Two pass shave was all that was required to hit DFS levels and topped everything off with the matching AS and a shot of English Laundry Windsor EDP with the matching deodorant. Almost Supermodel quality! Happy shaves all!

    Brush: Omega boar
    Cream: Williams
    Razor: Star 1912
    Blade: Feather

    Mug: Hugely expensive custom made shaving mug? Or did I steal my girlfriends morning coffee mug? You decide.

  11. The Mark Cross with the Proline is milder than the Enders (or Dehaven) but the easiest handling IMG_20190514_082850-01.jpg

    My farewell/test shave with the crown & sword peacock razor. I’ve had both of these literally for five years plus and never noticed that they matched until today
