Razor : Yaqi Telstar (Zamak version) with a Yaqi Rocket 316 SS handle. Mfg 2022>, upper mid aggressive. If a person likes some blade feel this razor will work well. I have shaved ridding the cap and ridding the bar works well with a short handle well on most aggressive razors. It's appearance is similar to a Razorock Lupo but it is not the same, the Lupo is a smoother shave IMO for similar results because I have shaved & own both razors. I bought the Telstar on sale on the cheap to try. I had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Gillette 7oClock SP(1) sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Yaqi "The Green" nice natural scented like walking in spring time forest with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Sagrada Familia" 22mm 2band badger. Excellent lather painter, pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. Very enjoyable small badger brush that works well for my shaving needs.
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 : Yaqi "the green" 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 Telstar razor with a Gillette 7oClock SP blade.

SV Saturday
Semogue Saturdays!

Hello friends

Another beautiful tropical winter evening. I called my usual Saturday friends. Saponificio Varesino, Semogue, Greencult 2.0 and Gillette Silver Blue (4).

GC2.0 plate IV gave me a deep shave without a single scratch. GSB has something that I can't quite define, but it leaves the surface of my skin smooth as marble. It's the only blade that gives me this indescribable feeling. SV provides the best post shave among all my soaps. And the might Pegasus Mistura…my favorite brush. I finished with Malizia Uomo, a fresh vetiver.

With us, my new generation friends, Gabrielle Cavassa and Joshua Redman.
