Sunday morning shave...

It's been some time since I last used the The Chinese cologne soap which always provided me with a wonderful protective slick lather for the shave and excellent post shave feel.

Finishing the shave off a with a generous splash of Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic.

Using the next razor in my rotation: the RR Stealth Slant. I loaded the razor with a Personna Lab blade. The result was a smooth, close, and comfortable shave. Today’s brush is a 2023 Contributors’ brush by Paladin. Another excellent Paladin brush. The brush felt great on my face and head. The MdC soap is on its 296th use. The soap is on its end run and I don’t know if it will reach shave 300. Have a great day and week, folks.


Razor - Lambda Ares V2
Blade - Gillette Perma Sharp
Brush - Wald Shaving Calyx
Soap - Elysian Soaps Olympus

The Lambda Ares shaves as good as it looks. The Greek column handle is unique and functional. Both the Ares and Athena razors use a very effective lather channeling system that is on the sides of the razor head. Just rinse it with water on the side and it clears the channels with ease. Close shave and goes to show one doesn’t need a thick coarse beard to use an open comb razor. Did the job just fine with one day’s growth. The Calyx brush, which comes with a 27mm synthetic knot instead of the usual 29mm Wald normally uses, manages to remain just as soft as the larger knot and still have good backbone. Olympus has a strong scent profile and did a good job cushioning. Having a matching splash and balm are a plus.
