It's been a while since I last used my the Baili BD191. The long hefty teardrop handle makes the razor 'Bottom heavy' which for personal preferences is a bonus as the weight of the razor does all the work with no for added pressure needed when shaving, especially for head shaving I also like the "closed head design" which reduces the risk of catching my ear lobes or under my nose from the blade ends when shaving... All in all a good razor, apart from the slippery teardrop handle which I rub with my alum block to give it extra adhesion.

Finishing the shave off with a few small squirts of Milton Lloyd The Man Silver EdT to the pulse points.

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

Keep safe and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Face wash with Cera Ve Face Soap
Haslinger Sandelholz Rasierseife Beruhigend (tallow formula)
Maggards 28mm Synthetic
Captains Choice Copper
Henson AL13++
Thayers WH & TOBS ASB
Jimmy Choo, Man Intense.
This was the second consecutive shave with my Henson AL I3 ++ and Feather blade. The shave was close and smooth. It seems that Feather blades work well in milder razors. Today I used a large synthetic brush: Maggards 28mm. This is a very soft and large brush. Because of its size, it makes plenty of lather. Unlike some of the smaller synthetic brushes, this one easily loads soap. The Haslinger tallow soap made excellent lather. This was the 21st consecutive day I used the soap. The shave was perfect. Have a wonderful day and week, folks.

Sunday SE shave, May 19th 2024

Razor : Yaqi Excalibur SE 50mm AC type with a Yaqi Milano 316 SSP handle. Mfg 2021>, tame mid range. Simple blade clamping system that works well + small head parts that make it nimble to wield on the beard area. Had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Schick proline(4) sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity for a AC blade.
Soap : Razorock XXX, nice unique scent that usually puts a smile on my face + excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Ever helpful" 22 mm 2band badger. Excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, firm nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. If a person likes a nice scrub this brush is worth taking a look at IMO, Yaqi shortened the loft + has dense knot.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Razorock XXX splash with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 10.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Yaqi Excalibur SE with a Schick proline blade.(forgot to sure the proline box)

Have some great shaves!

Sunday 19th of May

Razor: Fatip Piccolo
Blade: Astra SP (1)
Brush: Omega 10098
Cream: Shave (formerly Fauldings shave)
A/S: Wavol bay rum.

My periodical revisit of a cheap local cream, the one I started with, and the best smelling I've tried. It's not very slick, but the trick is to use heaps and have a well shaken out brush (The first ingredient is water, it's cheap after all)
The cream is a lavender scent, strong enough that I could still smell it after the bay rum faded.
Shave used to be made by Sanofi-Aventis (The tubes I have), but they've since changed the formula and the tubes I've seen on shelves most recently are made by some other Pharma company I've never hear of.
Sunday Morning Shave Salutations

Great shave using the Century No. 3 Brush and Le Pere Lucien. The Durham Duplex Razor
although technically a DE, given the head and handle geometry, it can only be used as a
Single Edge. I tried to use the other side and it was like shaving backwards and upside down.

Personna Lab Specimen Blade (1X)
Le Pere Lucien Cologne-Fougere Soap
Vintage Century No. 3 Boar Brush
Citrus Musk Splash On
