A/S: Geo. F. Trumper Bay Rum
Balm: EAD Post Shave Balm​

A very enjoyable shave with the Yaqi heads and using some other products from the far east. The scalloped head is a terror!! I would rate it more aggressive than the Muhle R41, loads of blade feel and very aggressive. If I'd used this for 3 passes my face wouldn't have held up!
The mixed head on the other hand was really nice to use. The open comb side was very mild with the straight bar side having a little more efficiency to it.
The Cadwgawn soap from Thailand was excellent. Nice scent - along the lines of a sweet by rum - and the performance and post shave were really good.
