Saturday Morning Shaving Salutations

Empire Razor and GEM Blade both have 10 shaves. I increased the exposure a bit on the second
pass and ATG was better. Just loving this little synthetic brush. It has some amazing backbone.

Razor : Yaqi TFC adjustable 2 pc. Mfg 2021>, lots of different ranges. Well built and seems to give a decent shave most of the time. Even on setting #1 it has some blade feel, but not over the top by any means. The razor is designed after the 1930's Gibbs adjustable but has no blade tab overhang and takes standard Gillette blades.
Blade : Gillette Permasharp stainless(1) sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Ogallala Bayrum Sage and Cedarwood, nice Bayrum scent with great lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Moka Express" 26mm Husky knot. Excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. One of my favorite brushes in my Brush harem. Had a close comfortable stellar shave this morning.
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(1) + ATG(2) + pickups(3 setting).
Post shave :Ogallala Bayrum and Sandalwood + 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 Yaqi TFC adjustable with a Gillette Permasharp stainless blade.
