Rating: 9.5/10 Excellent 3 pass BBS shave. Four weepers, no cuts or irritation. Again needed two touch ups on neck, no ill effects. Guess I am out of practice using a GEM razor. Happy with the outcome of the shave, upset on the weepers and am sure they are my fault.
Correction: Should be GEM G-Bar
Prep : Warm Water Splashes + Glycerin Face Wash

Close and buttery smooth BBS in 3 passes ! :001_wub:
What did I use yesterday on my 36-hour beard? A razor -- and a flashlight!

Gillette postwar fat-handled Tech in champagne gold; new Feather blade

Stirling Texas on Fire soap

AP Shave Co. synthetic brush

Fine Platinum aftershave

Earlier on Sunday I'd cleaned the Tech and replaced the blade, which I do with all the razors at the first of each month, so it was ready to go. The plan was to shave at 4 pm or so. Well, the power went out at my place at 2:30! I decided to shave to kill some time as I waited for the power company to correct the outage. I set my bigger LED flashlight on end; the beam bounced off the white ceiling tiles and made the room almost bright enough to read by. Pass 1, WTG; pass 2, throat only, no skin stretching, ATG, with a little bit of XTG cleanup, and then aftershave to finish. (The power issue turned out to be the central breaker for my apartment block, which had kicked off oddly before the rain storm which providentially kept the temps down while I sat and read by daylight.)

Verdict: 9.4.

This cream has been long-ignored and wow it was dang nice. Pleasant fresh scent and woooo, what a lovely creamy slick lather...some cooling sensation too!
Shave with the razor was uneventful but still not satisfied with the efficiency. The edge was still smooth and comfortable in 3passes+ for a between ccs to sas result without any weepers. Aftershaves were always good. Rating 9.3/10!

An absolutely perfect shave. No stubble, nicks or weepers.

Razor: Razorock Lupo 72
Blade: Wizamet (5)
Brush: Omega Jade
Soap: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
Aftershave: Chiseled Face Santa Paula

Good morning! A very nice shave. I love face lathering MWF with a boar brush. The Wizamet blade was very smooth, might be slowing down a little. I may start a new blade tomorrow, but could certainly go a couple more. Finished with Santa Paula.

Pre-Shave: Cold water splash - Cremo Shave Cream Bourbon Vanilla scent (Brushless - applied by hand.)
Soap: La Toja Shave Cream (tube)
Brush: Pinaud Clubman synthetic
Razor: RazoRock Lupo SS SB .72
Blade: Sharp Titanium (3)
Post-Shave: Cold water splash - Stirling Bay Rum-scented Witch Hazel - Lucky Tiger face tonic
AS: Oleo Soapworks El Caballero splash (skin food formula)

Very good shave. Had on weeper...that turned into a decent bleeder on the lower left of my neck. Took a whole point off for that. It's been coming on I think and this morning it finally let loose. All good. La Toja is a little light and airy, but nice...I like the scent, fresh and clean with a very mild spice. Paired it with El Caballero which is Bay Rum with some spice in it. Seems to work.

No picture today...pressed for time.

Happy Shaves, Everyone!

Today I am using my favorite slant razor: the ATT S-1. It is loaded with a Wizamet blade, a nice combination. I was planning to use a different soap this month but decided to keep going with the Haslinger Coconut/GFT Sandalwood Cream but may add another soap. The Haslinger with the tallow formula does a nice job. I can’t detect any scent, but its performance is excellent. A very nice, BBS shave. Have a good one, guys.
