The soap is my number 1!! Amazing scent, super creamy and slick lather.
1st use with the famous Karve brass SB-D. Wow....feel so smooth and so comfortable wtg and xtg but atg is abit different. 1st 2 passes shave angle is easy to find but atg especially around the lips area was not easy. Went for 3+1 passes for a between bbs to dfs/ccf result. 1 weeper from just putting the razor to the adam apple incorrectly, otherwise was a good shave. Excellent aftershave. Rating 9.5/10
Must try another blade with razor and see how. Razor feels really good in hand.

Squirted some cream into the bottom of my Captains Choice Heavy Copper, filled the VdH bowl with Hot water, wet the brush, and built the lather you see below. Whipped right up.

Not a bad shave. Wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't bad. Pretty sure it would have been better if I didn't feel like I was in such a rush. Then again, you can't pick and choose your circumstances all of the time.
