An uneventful but DFS, Shannons was just ok, it did produce a very slick lather, lime just not my thing. But it was a nice change of pace. I’ll probably go back to it on some hot summer days. No regrets with the purchase of 100 Silver Star Super Stainless blades. Think I’m set on blades for awhile. 100 Astra Superior Platinum, 100 Feather Hi-Stainless Platinum Coated, 100 Tatra Platinum Premium Stainless, 100 Shark Super Stainless, 100 Derby Premium Platinum Blades

It's always a great Fatip Friday when I shave with the mighty Piccolo & get a 2 pass BBS result. The prowess of Fatip razors are legendary & Wizamet blades are sharp & smooth winners. Debut of Aqua Velva Ice Sport A/S. I like it. Fresh aquatic scent. Not as much menthol as the Aqua Velva Ice Blue. Word on the streets is that it's a clone of Davidoff Cool Water. It's a good compliment to WTP Blue Barbershop shave soap, RazoRock's take on the discontinued Floid Blue. Overall, a Great Shave!


Razor: Fatip Piccolo Nickel Open Comb
Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium (4)
Brush: Van Der Hagen Pure Badger Brush
Pre-Shave: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar, Cremo Classic Shave Cream
Soap: RazoRock WTP Blue Barbershop
Aftershave: Aqua Velva Ice Sport, Duke Cannon A/S Balm
Growth: 22 hours
Passes: WTG, XTG
Rating: 10/10
Friday, May 13: MWF May

Supply 2.0 injector fitted with Open Comb SE plate; Supply Black Label injector blade (4th or 5h shave)
Jayaruh JR267 burled maple and 24mm boar brush
Lucky Tiger Face Tonic, then VIBR


I had a three-day stubble to mow this morning. My everlasting MWF puck (I am trying to finish it off this month) provided its usual slick lather. Two passes gave me a DFS. Alum was silent. A nice bay rum finish.

However, not a totally fabulous shave -- the Supply injector normally does an excellent job, but it was tuggy today on the first pass over my moustache and goatee area. Most injector blades are smooth for at least 10 shaves; this one wasn't. A user on another forum commented that he found the new Supply "black label" blades from Japan might be quite sharp for the first shave, but they degraded faster than most. This is the first one I have used. I think he might be right.

(Face & Head shave.)

(Parker InjRzr focus week)

A new shave set up to start the weekend...As i haven't gave much attention to the Parker InjRzr since it became a member of my humble injector razor collection, so i'll be doing a focus week.

The design of the injector razor is wonderful they are solidly built to hold the blade firm & rigid in the razor head with no movement making the shaving experience feel safe comfortable, and smooth with no blade chatter, and very easy to adjust to finding the right shaving angle....As i have mentioned before they are such comfortable smooth efficient shavers and are now my favourite shaving tools for head shaving.

As always the monsavon soap provided a luxurious protective slick lather...The monsavon au lait has to be one my favourite shaving soap to date. It's slick, protective and the post shave feeling it gives is superb making each shave a enjoyable pleasurable experience.

A close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Kick ASB.

My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.
