Today I am using my U,K. Aristocrat razor with a Wizamet blade for the 4th day in a row. Today’s brush is my Paladin El Dorado, one of my favorite brushes. It never has a problem making great lather and feels great on my face. The MdC soap is on its 171st shave. My Proraso ASB has only a few more uses but I bought a replacement. Have a great day.

Razor : Yaqi TFC adjustable- Mfg 2021>, well made and works well for my shave needs + affordable. This razor is based off the the 1930's Gibbs adjustable design but takes regular Gillette blades where as the Gibbs had proprietary blades. I receive nice shaves from the TFC adjustable and that is all I want in a razor. This morning had a close shave with no issues.
Blade : GSB (1) sharp and smoooth with reasonable longevity. Top tier in my blades.
Soap : Ogallala Bayrum + sage & cedarwood- nice Bayrum scented soap + excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi " barber shop pole" 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, great splay scrubber + great lather painter. I enjoy this brush + has a nice big handle for large hands if needed.

Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG (3) + ATG(4) + pickups (4 settings).
