Maggard London Barbershop today. 20 seconds to load the Thater Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Vintage Gillette Platinum Plus still in the Gillette NEW SC. Excellent smooth, close shave. I finished with Fine American Blend aftershave.

Distinctive composition, Doug. Another SOC shows up in a SOTD! I really need to get one.
Thanks, Ron. I go back and forth on my SOC. I find it to be a bit difficult to use sometimes. It's a bit of a lather hog, IMO. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I don't. It sure does make a pretty picture though.

I've been gone too long, but back in the game today.

Inspired by Ron and his list of SE's, I purchased the RazoRock SE Black Hawk, and this is my first shave with it. This is my second SE. The asylum will be purchased soon.
Decided to go all Italian with as much RazoRock stuff as possible:

Pre: hot towel, proraso pre shave cream
Bowl: Hammered Turkish brass
Brush: B&B 10 yr anniversary boar
Soap: Razo Rock Santa Maria del Fiore Firenze
Razor: Razo Rock Black Hawk
Blade: Feather Pro Guard
post1: hot towel, alum, hot towel, Razo Rock Santa Maria del Fiore Firenze lotion
post2: Proraso aftershave balm

I really like the Razor. It did a very fine job at giving a close shave.
The "guard" part is new for me and I did find that it took extra strokes to make each pass clean as soap was left behind on many strokes.
I may try a SE without a guard to see how that works.
I was surprised at the very light weight of the razor.

Looking forward to move shaves with this SE.
