Excellent BayRum soap! Love the scent and lather qualities. Creamy and slick.
Shave with favourite razor paired with this blade was extra smooth...extra comfortable for 3+1 passes. Quite efficient too for a BBS result. Great post & aftershave top-off an outstanding shave session. Rating 9.8/10

SOTD MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 12, 2020

I own three Japanese straight razors. I shaved with the Tanifuji Airi two days ago, the R. Saito SK3 yesterday. This morning I selected the Nichiri Tokusen by Diamond Hayashi. I really love its buttery soft edge, and today it didn’t disappoint. Just a whisker-meltingly two pass WTG, ATG) great mug shave. Last Monday was Monobilt Monday at TSD. The dome shave that day was excellent! So after my great face shave I pulled out the Cooper Monobilt, and experienced another excellent two pass (ATG, ATG) dome shave. Both shaves were facilitated by the slick Baume.Be lather carpet generated by my MrEE Knurled Aluminum brush! I feel smooth, clean and velveteen on this rainy Monday!

RAZOR: D.H. Nichiri Tokusen 6/8 (Mug), Cooper Monobilt (Dome)
BLADE: Polsilver (2)
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by Argan Oil
BRUSH: MrEE Knurled Aluminum Hybrid Knot #007
CREAM: Baume.Be
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with Glyce Glycerin Soap followed by Humphreys WH. Finished with Fine Accoutrements Lavender Pour Homme AS Splash.
