This is my second shave with the ATT S-1 and Personna Medical Prep blade. It was another excellent shave. I can always count on this razor to give me a quality shave. Today’s brush is the 2023 Contributors’ brush made by Paladin. Another wonderful Paladin brush. The Williams is on its 106th use. The soap puck is showing its use. The shave was perfect. Have a wonderful day and week, folks.

SE SOTD, April 7th 2024

Razor : Yaqi Excalibur SE 50mm AC type with a Yaqi Milano 316SSP handle. Mfg 2021>, tame mid range. Simple clamping system with small head parts. I prefer to assemble on a wash cloth in case I drop a part. I seem to get nice results with this affordable razor head, Yaqi Romulus is slightly better for machining and finish IMO, had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Kai Captain titian mild (5) Sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity when using the Excalibur.
Soap : Speick stick. Nice mild herbal scented with lavender + excellent lather qualities. For a mass produced soap it works well.
Brush : Yaqi " Ferrari" 24mm bleached boar bristle. Excellent lather generator, soft split end boar bristles hairs, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. Works well and great boar brush, I bought it when it was on a damaged knot sale, lots of broken hairs but after that it is excellent IMO.
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 : Ach Brito Lavanda with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 9.jpg or CCS,DFS,BbS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my excellent shave with my Yaqi Excalibur SE razor with a Kai Titian mild blade.
