ASRazor shave, Saturday, April 6th 2024

Razor : Gem 1912, 1921 variant. Mfg 1912-1940's. ASR made millions of 1912 variants with different brand names because they where just that good a razor. They sold under Ever Ready and Star brands + Gem and some department stores most likely. USA armed forces also had lots of 1912 models during WW1 stamped army property. I find it a great tame mid range to mid range depending on operator technique. Had a close comfortable stellar shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (5). Very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle IMO.
Soap : Speick stick, nice mild herbal scent with some of the best lather qualities I have used.
Brush : Yaqi "Red Zebra" 26mm snow leopard synthetic knot. Excellent lather generator, luxury heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. One of my favorite brushes for some time.
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 :Razorock American barber + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 10 stellar.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable stellar shave this morning with my Gem 1912 with a coated Gem blade.

Semogue Saturdays!

Hello friends!

After recovering from a bad flu, I started shaving again after 6 days. And I took the chance to test the blade that my dear friend Paul @awk_m4 , with his immense generosity, gave me the opportunity to try: the Polsilver Vintage. What a treat, friends! I took advantage and gave her a baptism of fire. I put it on my Greencult 2.0 plate IV which, with its 1.05 gap and 0.20 mm exposure, put the blade to the test. It was spectacular. She was unforgiving to my long beard, but at the same time soft to my skin. It seemed thicker to me than current blades like Wizamet, for example. It looks like I was in a muscle car today. Maybe a Shelby Mustang or even a Dodge Challenger. There wasn't a single hair left or a cut or scratch.

MdC Fougère, Semogue SOC Boar and Brut completed the journey.

With us, a bass genius, the great Scott LaFaro.

Have a nice evening and great shaves!
