Razor: Fatip Piccolo
Blade: Shark Super Chrome (2nd use)
Brush: Omega S-Brush S10019
Soap: Proraso White
Aftershave: Proraso Green
EDT: Adidas Pure Game

Second go with the Super Chrome/Fatip (was in a rush and didn't want to faff around putting it in another razor). Ok comfort, no irritation or blood, but not very close result at all. Tried re-centring the blade after last shave, better but still not even, I think Lords/Sharks are a no-go in this Fatip in the future.

This is the second day I used my Henson: Henson AL+++ razor with a Personna Medical Prep blade. The shave with the more aggressive Henson was very close. No touch-ups were needed for a BBS shave. Today’s brush is another badger brush: the Paladin PK 47. The brush produced a nice rich lather. This was the 59th use of the Haslinger soap. The soap is nearing the end of its use. I posted a photo of the soap yesterday in the 3017 thread. Have a good day, folks.

I'm pleasantly surprised that the vintage Valet blade is still going strong after three uses.
Lothur Samber is a beautiful aromatic that never disappoints.

  • Blade: Gillette Nacet (10)
  • Lather: Wars cream (it's a Polish one, tried it recently, very good)
  • Brush: Proraso/Omega brush
