SE SOTD, Sat, June 2nd 2022

Razor : Yaqi Katana- Mfg 2019> mid range, takes 1/2 DE blade and works well, loading a blade I keep it lose and bump the blade to the stops gently with a carboard blade tuck box and then lightly torque and check for final tightening. Blade installation is a challenge some times but once you do it a few times it becomes easier IMO. 1/2 DE blade is more a Gimmick possibly but great for the budget minded compared when buying SE blades IMO!
Blade : Gillette Astra SP (2) sharp & smooth with excellent longevity.
Soap : Razorock Lavender- nice lavender scent with excellent lather qualities. (discontinued.)
Brush : Yaqi Chianti's 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentile scrub+ excellent lather painter.
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 : Ach Brito Lavanda aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: excellent shave with my Yaqi Katana SE with a Astra SP blade.
