Razor: GEM Micromatic clog Pruf(Peerless model 17nib S.B)- MFG 1945, excellent mid range, I get great shaves with this razor, easy to manipulate around the face.
Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (9) excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
Soap: Speick- triple milled, very nice mild spicy scent, great lather qualities + great post shave feel.
Brush: Yaqi 24 mm boar brush, it shed hairs at first and still gives up 1 or 2 hairs once in a while but it is my best feeling boar brush of my 2, a joy to use with a great break in procedure I used.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar soap + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.

Monday, May 3rd

Late shave on my day off.
Pre- cold water and Nivea face wash
Brush- Ever-Ready 500 w/ THN Silvertip knot
Soap- Mitchell’s Wool Fat
Razor- plain Jane Dovo
Post- Thayers, B&M Spice AS then Nivea post balm

I don’t use the straight razor unless I have extra time to really enjoy the shave. It definitely gives the closest shave and Mitchell’s is one of my favorite soaps.
Have a great Monday everyone!
