A good shave. :biggrin:

I got a very good shave on the first use of my Baili B3 (Open Comb side only). (Razor just landed pics etc HERE if you're interested.)
The handle is very nice and grippy. If only it were my favorite 75mm length (rather than 97mm [vaulting pole stuff]) I would be in love with it.
The only other gripe I have is the length of the baseplate and cap. They're 44.5mm. My blade being 42.7mm long, it was a bugger to remove (safely).
I'll be doing my usual "new razor" seven-shave trial with the B3.

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Semogue Saturdays!

Hello friends

Cold Saturday for our standards. Perfect for roses. MdC Rose and Penhalingon’s Hammam Bouquet inspired me. Greencult 2.0 IV, GSB (3) and Semogue Pegasus Mistura. What a team, friends! I finished with Floïd Mentolado Suave.

In this memorable event, the magnificent Etta Jones in an album for the desert island.

Soap: Proraso Green
Aftershave: Proraso Green
Fragrance: Swiss Arabian Jannet El Firdaus

Quick and passable shave today, found setting 6 a bit agressive ATG, but setting 3 was comfortable.
The Jannet El Firdaus is a green soapy spicy floral fougere, very clean, and worked well with general soapy freshness of Proraso Green. I get rose, jasmine, cinnamon, basil, and maybe some lemongrass or pandanus.
