Combined with the sharp & smooth Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow SharpEdge achieved a DFS+ result. PdP No. 63, triple milled long lasting shave soap, lathers easily producing peaky, slick, moist lather. Warm & spicy scent. Good post shave skin feel, moisturized. Good performer. Aqua Velva is a nice cooling & spicy compliment to the soap. Very Good Shave.

Soap Southern Witchcraft Samhain
Brush Spiffo Manchurian
Razor Wade & Butcher 7/8 Steamship Wedge
Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Southern Witchcraft Samhain Splash
Beautiful lather from this soap! It was rich creamy slick with a nice delicious scent...whipped up easily by the super soft badger!
The shave with this razor after stropping on the Kanayama was very nice! Buttery smooth and comfortable. Some say a wedge is like shaving with an axe but this axe is really gentle 😄 I just love hefty razors. 3 enjoyable passes without any issues for a dfs/ccs result. The matching aftershave was super...

P/S: My cat is admiring my shave den and wondering what the fuss is all about...😆😆

As I was going through my DE blade collection, I found these oldies but goodies circa 2012. Sharp Star blades, as the name implies, are sharp and incredibly smooth. Not in the same league as Feather, but no slouch either. They mated with Madame Barbasol for a magnificent noggin shave. Nothing need be said about the Wade & Butcher 13/16 mug shave, every bit as good….

RAZOR: Wade & Butcher 13/16 (Mug), Barbasol Floating Head (Dome)
BLADE: Sharp Star
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a heavy scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: Viking Silvertip Badger
CREAM: A&E Shaving Butter
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with A&E Post-Shave Serum.

Face wash with Cera Ve Hydrating Facial Cleaner
Ethos Unscented
Paladin Lotus.
Captain’s Choice Copper
Henson Ti22 - Medium
Personna Lab
Thayers WH & Everyman Jack Face Lotion
GFT Sandalwood
I ditched the RK blade and replaced it with a Personna Lab. The shave improved 100%! A nice, smooth BBS shave. 51st shave with the Ethos soap. It is showing a significant hole in the middle. I really like this soap.
I’m getting used to the Everyman Jack Lotion but don’t think I will replace it when it is finished. Have a good one, gents.

Razor : Yaqi V2 Tile 316 SS head- Mfg 2021> mild range razor, I use a extra wide Kai blade to knock it up a notch for slightly more blade feel, well built on this version for QC, looks similar to a Henson razor. I seem to get excellent shaves with this razor.
Blade : Kai SS (10) excellent blade, wider by 9/1000 of a inch or 4.5/1000" per side. Sharp & smooth with excellent longevity.
Soap : Razorock XXX- one of my favorite scents with excellent lather qualities.

Have some great shaves!

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Morris & Forndran Brad Sears L7 Tigris Finest Badger
Soap: Czech and Speake No 88
Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: Vintage NOS Personna P74 (3)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel, Pitralon Classic Aftershave Lotion
Scent: Floris Elite EdT

The forte of this M&F Tigris brush is triple milled hard soaps, thanks to its dense knot and strong backbone. And they don't come much harder (or better) than the Valobra tallow base used by Czech & Speake.
A luxurious shave.

■ Adjustable April ■

My final shave of this year's Adjustable April was a stunning one, the month couldn't ended better. Three passes with the Rex Ambassador made my skin feel like the one of a young dolphin.

Enjoy your weekend, y'all!
