A lovely weekend BBS shave with the Rocca and a revisit to the GSB blade, which I haven’t had the chance to try in the R95. An outstanding blade; smooth and efficient.

The Seville soap lathered great with the Silvertip badger and played a crucial role in today‘s achievement of a BBS.

A little feedback from the Alum on the neck and a bit of stinging when applying the 4711 Eau de Cologne.

Today‘s shave was completed with Boss The Scent Intense.

Using the Rocca after using the Pearl L-55 feels like I have traveled to the future. :c4:

(Face & Head Shave)

A new eclectic shave set up to start the Weekend.

A great performance from the Yaqi DOC Mellon/Astra SP duo providing me with an acceptable smooth near BBS combined face & head shave. The in-expensive Yaqi Mellon DOC razor head pairs together with the weighty Schmidt R10 handle wonderfully making a well balanced Frankenrazor which feels solid and comfortable to use.

The Astra SP was a joy to use mowing down my face & head stubble with effortless ease. I can't believe that I haven't added to my DE blade rotation for such a long time

A close efficient face & head shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Ard Al Zafran Dirham Oud EDP to the pulse points.

My face & precious swede are both feeling smooth and smelling divine.;)

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

I am ending the week with a different razor and blade combination: the ATT-S1 slant razor with a Personna Medical Prep blade. This combination always gives me a nice, smooth shave. Rudy Vey made the brush I am using today: the 2022 Contributors’ brush. The brush looks and performs nicely. The Williams is on its 105th use. The soap puck is showing its use. The result was a perfect shave. Have a wonderful day, folks.

Saturday Morning Sample Shave

The sample popped out of the container so I just rubbed it on my wet face and Voila - Lather.
Even with the little Mighty Midget, I got two passes and a bit of clean up.
It's a nice berry scent that's just perfect for early Spring.
