A superb shave. :biggrin:

My BRG plated FBT just pushed my NEW RFB off the Number One spot they were sharing… the BRG work and plating has definitely made it "better than new."
After a long rest my tiny butterscotch D01 was fab (feather soft but with good backbone, and a lather monster to boot).

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

(Face & Head Shave.)


New shave set up to start the weekend...I intend to carry on with my tribute month using the Gem Featherweight & the Schick Type G Injector but to feed my urges & need for variety with my SOTD set ups, for the rest of the month i will be adding an assortment of other shaving soaps/creams, ASL's & post shave balms & gels that i haven't used in a while. 'If the truth be told, to start using them up, because I've had some of them for a considerable amount of time, along with the Ever-Ready 1912 (US) "my first SE vintage ER, & the most recently added the Schick I1 Injector 1955-58, another two kindly gifted SE razors, and finally to further my appreciation & enjoyment of these remarkable vintage shaving tools, I'll also be adding my modern Supply V2, & Parker InjRzr to carry on with my eclectic shave set ups.

The P&B Citra Royale soap i haven't used for a while, which provided me with a excellent slick protective lather, with a really nice fragrance which reminds of lime opal fruits/starburst chew sweets, leaving a wonderful post shave feel.

With the mini heatwave we've had in the UK recently my cold water shaves have been refreshing & a great tonic for my mature skin type.

A comfortable face & head shave to start another weekend on a high note...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

My face & precious swede are feeling super smooth and smelling divine.😉

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

The lather whip-up from this soap is just awesome! Richly creamy and very slick with a pleasant sage/grass scent!
A very enjoyable shave with this razor. The edge is very smooth and crisp after putting it through the Kanayama strop. 3passes for a dfs-ccs category without any issues. The aftershave is very nice!

Shave of Day BB.jpg

Face wash with Neutrogena Liquid Face Soap
Seaforth Sea Spice Lime
T&H Silvertip
Captain’s Choice Copper
Wolfman WR 2 SB 1.05
Personna Medical Prep Blade
Thayers WH & Proraso ASB
Jimmy Choo Man Intense
Sticking with the Wolfman WR 2 loaded with a Personna Medical Prep blade. This razor performs great. The razor provided a smooth and efficient shave. I am continuing to use the Seaforth Sea Spice Lime soap. It is a perfect soap for these hot Arizona days. So far, I have used this soap 29 times. The brush is the first brush I bought after joining B&B: a T&H Silvertip. My usual four-pass shave resulted in a BBS shave. Have a good one and a good weekend B&Bers.
