Long ignored soap & balm set. Superb lather qualities and a long-lasting strong scent...
This razor was long-ignored too because the edge was not satisfactory...couldn't even tree-top. Finally, have the time to put it through the full diamond balsa progression and finish on the HBA. The resulting shave was very nice...buttery smooth and crisply keen...

New Forest Tubby 1 in Super - RazoRock 'The Dead Sea' - DS-Legend/Feather Professional - 4711 Jasmine

First use of the Legend. Very little blade exposure and it was difficult to 'dial in'. On this outing certainly not a 1 or 2 pass razor.....I may have to move to a Super Pro.. The result was good enough...but I had to work at it.

Another rainy day. ☹ This is my 7th shave with the Feather AS-D2 razor and Feather blade. I’m curious how many more shaves I will get with this combo. Another smooth, close shave but the blade is not as sharp. Today’s brush is a synthetic made by Frank Shaving. It is not one of my favorite brushes because it has very little backbone. The Williams was used for the 39th time. A perfect shave. Have a great day and week, folks.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap Soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: D.R. Harris H3 Best Badger
Cream: Fitjar Islands Folgefonn (plus 5 menthol drops)
Razor: Blutt BR-1
Blade: Vintage NOS Gillette Aussie Spoiler (5)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel, Barrister and Mann Arctique Aftershave Lotion

Very hot weather here in Perth called for a cooling shave.

Have some great shaves!
Sunday Morning Shaving Salutations

By far my nicest Empire Razor. The Silver plating is hardly worn and it just looks almost new.
If you don't have a Palmolive Shave stick or cream in your repertoire you don't know what you're missing.
Sixth shave on the blade and it is still sharp and efficient. All in all a Great Shave !!
