Razor : Ever-Ready, British 1912 model- Mfg 1936-53, tame mid range, excellent Mfg razor with excellent finish QC, this razor sold millions over the decades of production both in USA & Great Britain because it was just that good. Used a modern Gem SS PTFE blade and it works better than was offered back in the that era of shaving. Also used a RIGS shim to mimic the tilt of the older blades at that time period.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (3) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Gillette Pure cream, nice clean unique scent with excellent lather qualities. Makes excellent Ubber lather also.
Brush : Yaqi "Casino clubs" 26mm timer wolf knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. One of my favorite brushes to use.
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 Irish Countryside AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :1-10 dial - Copy (2) 1 10.545.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent stellar close shave this morning with my Ever-ready 1912 model with a coated Gem blade.(It don't get much better when shaving + no irritation!)

Hello friends

Today the birthday present that my beloved wife gave me arrived: MdC Fougere. To debut it, I put together a dream team: R41, Feather (2), SOC Finest and Brut. Accompanying me in this dream, perhaps the best piece of music ever recorded: Stella by Starlight with Miles, Coltrane, Bill Evans, Cannonball Adderley, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb.

My friends, at the moment of my death I will remember this afternoon and smile.

Have a great Sunday and wonderful shaves.
