    Wickham 1912 Citrus Musk
    RazoRock 400 Plissoft Noir
    Merkur 39c/Astra SP (3)
    Wickham 1912 Irish Fern balm
    Fendi Di Fendi Absoluto EDT

    Three passes for a BBS finish.
    It's always a pleasure to use Wickham soaps. The balm is a good performer too.
    One small weeper above my top lip, nothing a final cold rinse couldn't control.
    A few sprays of Fendi left me smelling good.

    Wednesday evening

    Cream - Proraso M & E
    Brush - RazoRock BC 24mm Silvertip
    Bowl - Proraso
    Razor - Feather Artist Club Kamisori
    Blade - Feather Professional
    Post - Alum and BBA post shave balm

    Nice shave tonight. I tried the razor with a slightly shallower angle to my face (not quite at right angle, but a bit more than the recommended thirty degrees) and it worked well. One tiny weeper, but cold water and alum did the trick. 2 passes (with and across) and a third against, but only on the chops.

    I love the RazoRock Acrylic Silvertip. A lovely brush. Whilst I wouldn't give up my boars, I really dig the synths.

    By the way, the BBA post shave balm is a bit of a revelation, what?

    Razor: Alumigoose w/ Custom made Aluminum Handle Britian
    Blade: KAI Captain Titan (6)
    Brush: DFS LE Nathan Clark Envy White Handle Aluminum Color, Anodized Dark Bronze. #41/150
    Soap: Reef Point Soap Admiralty
    A/S: Lucky Tiger, Old Spice
    Decanter: Old Spice Ship's Flask Flying Cloud 1985 ID #3630
    Bowl: TDG Maple Cherry Ribbed #8

    The razor only weighs a total of 54.6 grams so I was a little worried it wouldn't have the weight to give a close shave. Wrong again. The handle was 37.8 grams and felt smooth. It was not slippery at all. The brush and TDG bowl whipped up the Reef Point Soap Admiralty soap in no time into and beautiful lather. I can safely say that this is a buy again soap. The Flying Cloud is one of my favorite Old Spice decanters. A little photo heavy. :)

    Prep....Shower ~ Oilive Oil soap
    Razor....Cobra Classic. (On loan from @culcreuch )
    Blade....Schick Proline P-20/30
    Soap....Saponifico Varesino ~ Felce Aromatica
    Brush....Razorock silvertip Sythetic
    Post....BBA Post Shave Balm
    Scent....Tabacco Vanelle , Tom Ford copy oil Mr Perfume

    Blade monkey wanted me to face lather this morning so I did, I never used to but it makes a change and is one less thing to carry into the bathroom!
    The Felce Aromatica was soon whipped up into a lovely creamy lather and applied with the super soft Razorock Silvertip .
    The shave again was faultless , BB smooth with no irritation, it's fair to say I'm loving this razor , not only the shave it gives but it's weight , the way it feels in my hand and of course it's fantastic looks. It is on my must have list of razors and it's at the top of that list too!
    BBA post shave Balm applied and I was ready to face the world once I had applied the Tabacco Vanelle perfume oil here and there that is!

    Wishing you all a great day whatever you may be doing but let's be careful out there! :)

    Funny enough, I came across that band yesterday afternoon. The song I heard was called Tommy Walsh's Eco House.
    Excellent lyrics in their songs, I'll be listening to more for sure.

    If I hold the tin upside down and tap the base the soap moves forward towards the rim.It doesn't spin around in the tin when building a lather,if that's what you mean.
  16. Waylander


    Ah, mine 'rattles' around in the tin (maybe because its new), so may lather and dry outside the tin. Cannot wait to use it, smells divine :cool:

    Thanks again

    The SV soaps are superb, I'm sure you'll enjoy ;)

    Nice first outing with this SE, certainly a different feel to the R41 that I've been using exclusively for the last 6 months plus
