Razor : Yaqi Excalibur 50mm AC with a Yaqi Milano 316 SS Polished- Mfg 2021>, tame mid range. Simple blade clamping and machining and finish are great for my shaving needs. This little razor head is just perfect for my shaving needs 95% + of the time and it will be in my den for a long time and I have some back ups also I bought on sale months ago on the cheap. Small head parts makes me want to assemble over a wash cloth & seems to work the best. Had a stellar shave this morning with no issues.
Blade : Schick Proline - sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Razorock Irish Countryside, nice rejuvenating interesting clean scented with excellent lather qualities. Hard to beat this soap for quality lather IMO.

Simply another excellent head and face shave. Nothing to complain about.
Maybe I went a wee heavy on my American Artisan Aftershave Blend of 50/50 Clubman Citrus Musk and Mennen Skin Bracer. Muskbracer-Citrus

🇺🇸 County Water District cold tap water
🇺🇸 Personna USA blade
🇺🇸 Blackland Blackbird Ti Lite
🇺🇸 Personna USA blades 1&1/2 (2)
Leaf Triple (head)
🇺🇸 V & E's Maine Made Crafts BLUE SUMMER SKY shave soap
🇺🇸 Dickinson's Witch Hazel
🇺🇸 Clubman Citrus Musk mixed 50/50 w/Mennen Skin Bracer, dropper bottle
Omega Boar Brush

The Personna 1/2 blades in the Leaf were on their second head shave today. They did fine, no issues.
The Personna single in the Blackbird was first use. Both sets were disposed of post shave.

Thanks for the thread theme OP!

Good shaves to all!
