Brush: Simpson Wee Scot 13/39
Soap: Vitos Red
Razor: 1940s Knockout GT
Blade: Personna Red (5)
ASL: Clubman VIBR

A knockout shave! :laugh:

I'd forgotten what a great shaver the Knockout is, fab. I always love the way the waste lather runs between the baseplate and the blade to the other side. And just like me, it loves the GT handle. :biggrin:


Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Pre: Proraso Single Blade Wood&Spice
Brush: Mühle Kosmo Silvertip badger
Razor: Timeless Bronze 0.38 SB*
Blade: Voskhod (1)
Lather: Barrister&Mann Latha Taiga
Post: A&E Tertius splash + Proraso White balm

*This was the virgin journey for my brand new Timeless, so I went with "tried and trusted" soft- and hardware. And by Odin's beard, that's a smooth and gentle shaver!
 
Second time ever with a feather got DFS+ result and its was very smooth once again. We will see what its like on it's 3rd use tomorrow.

Razor: Rockwell 6C
Blade: Feather (2)
Brush: WildWestBrushworks 26mm Timberwolf
Soap: Stirling Executive Man
Aftershave: Stirling Executive Man
Fragrance: Al Haramain L' Aventure (I have not tried this in a couple of years thought I'd revisit and after acquiring the original Creed Aventus the clone is alot more tart or sour to my nose its just seems a bit more synthetic and not as fresh as the original but I have learned that their is an even better one from Armaf club de nuit intense eau de parfum i might check it out and its only 50 bucks maybe i'll give it a whirl along with their other called sillage a clone of silver mountain water)

Nacet (3)
Omega mixed midget
Captain's choice bowl
PAA Boomtown Bay Rum soap and AS

This little Omega makes amazing lather! Shave was so good I didn't need my usual 3rd pass, touch-ups would have been sufficient. But I had so much lather left i decided to go for BBS. Best shave I've had in a long time.

Test lathered my Eveready 200T boar with some Proraso white. It is starting to bloom nicely.
