' November Focus on one razor Month'

A new shave set up to start the Weekend....I haven't gave my Parker 98r a run out for a while, so for the remaining two days of October and the whole of November i will focus on using it pairing it up with a variety of subcontinent DE blades.

Maiden shave with the Willy's Premium which paired together with the Parker 98r very nicely with no issues making an efficiently smooth duo Indian razor & blade duo.

The Parker 98r was my first proper DE razor that i bought when i introduced myself to the wonderful world of traditional wet shaving... Not long after that in the same month i bought the Muhle R89 and the Merkur 34C HD...However, since then i have infrequently used the 98r, so it will be good to reacquaint myself to this hefty efficient Indian made DE razor and give it some attention it rightly deserves.

After recently re reacquainting myself to the Cella Crema Da Barba shave cream my intention was to use it again today....However, after noticing the Vitos Vegetal shaving soap i went for the Vitos Vegetal another equally wonderfully 'Full On' vibrant sweet almond scented shaving soap to start my weekend off in style. If you like almond scented shaving products this soap will blow you always with it's fragrance performance and post shave feel...Superb stuff!

A very enjoyable close comfortable face and head shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of The Real Shaving Company PSSB.

My face & precious swede are both feeling silky smooth & smelling divine. ;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen. :cool:
Great write up. Happy Shaves.

A relaxing Halloween Sunday morning shave.

Since i was kid, Halloween night has always been something i've looked forward to having the usual mass visiting Trick-orTreating presence from Wolverines, Michael Myers, Witches, Werewolfs, Mother-In Laws, Zombies, Vampires, Frankensteins, Mummys & Daddys, Beatlejuices, Batmans, Batwomen, Jokers, Freddy Kruegers,Chuckys,Jason Voorhees knocking on the door queuing up for the boat load of goodies people normally have for them around the world to mark this 'spooky Halloween Trick-or Treating event'.

As like last year with the Covid-19 pandemic I've had to modify the normal Trick-or Treating activities for this evening and will be leaving some spooky goodies near the front door for the usual Halloween suspects to share & enjoy.

A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Cien Sensitive ASB.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your 'Spooky Halloween Sunday' ladies & gentlemen. 😎

>> SOCTOBER / OCtober <<

Preshave: shower, frigid tap water
Brush: Semogue Owners Club Mistura Taj
Soap: Stirling Soap ~ Pharaoh's Dreamsiecle
Razor: Mühle R41 Twist
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (1)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Stirling Soap ~ Pharaoh's Dreamsiecle, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Aqua Creme.

Today's shave marked the final shave of SOCTOBER 2021. Unfortunately I didn't manage to shave more days, but the shaves which took place were highly enjoyable. Every single time. The SOC brush series is really a great value - with the Mistura being the star in the line up.

Enjoy your Sunday, y'all!
