    Pre: Warm water face wash
    Brush: Semogue 1470 Boar
    Soap: Stirling Sandalwood
    Razor: Cobra Classic
    Blade: Feather Pro
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, Stirling Sandalwood PSB

    I was curious to see how smooth the combination of Cobra/Feather was on less than 24hrs growth.
    With the slickness and cushion of Stirling as the Cobra's ally, the stubble stood no chance and my skin feels smooth and soft.
    Have a great weekend everyone,

    Rocca R96
    Astra SP - #2
    Stirling Lemon Chill
    YaQi 2-band fan

    Shaving two days after the last, the Rocca mowed down all in its path (within reason). Base of my neck I didn’t want to push but one pass and a couple of touch ups later and I’m pretty smooth. One of the briskest soaps with a cold-water shave on this wintry Welsh day made for a bracing shave! Give it a go, I dare you! :D

    Greetings All,

    Saturday pm shave.

    Two days’ growth and warm shave

    Preparation – showered, then face washed with Clique Liquid facial soap (mild)

    Soap: P&B – Oberon
    Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable (Setting 5)
    Blade: Astra SP (1st)
    Brush: RazoRock 400

    Post Shave: Hot and cold water rinse, then Nivea 2 Phase and Nivea Original Balm.

    Firstly, new soap today – P&B Oberon. Like the last two P&B soaps I have tried, being Whitechapel and Baskerville, this soap will be added directly to my KEEPERS pile. Everything about this soap was what I liked from the scent (could be stronger) but was pleasant and made the shave more enjoyable. And as usual with P&B soaps, the cushioning and slickness were second to none – another great product.

    Secondly, tried the Astra SP in my Gillette Slim Adjustable. I must admit I had a good shave (a lot down to the soap) but like my overall blade grading would put the Gillette Nacet a notch higher in terms of overall comfort (this is also bearing in mind I had a used Gillette Nacet and a new Astra SP).

    Back on Monday testing the Perma-Sharp Super.

    Have a great weekend.

    Saturday 13th January


    Olive Oil Soap and RSC Facial Scrub
    Proraso Sensitive Preshave
    OSP Bay Rum Soap
    Yaqi Mysterious Space 26mm Tuxedo Brush
    Muhle R41 (2011) Razor
    Gilette Super Thin Blade
    Alum Block and Rinse
    BBA PS Balm
    Brian's Homemade Bay Rum

    Today's shave with the R41 felt much better. I was more confident and there was only minimal sting at the spot I always have to touch up when shaving.

    2 passes and the aforementioned touch up for a BBS shave:)

    Enjoy your weekend everyone!

    Have a great weekend everyone!
  14. Morning shave.

    Baxters of California Face Wash
    Shavemac 2 Band Silvertip (face lather)
    Gibbs No.15 (on loan)
    Astra SP (1)
    Fine Green Vetiver Aftershave
    Guerlain Vetiver EDT

    Although Iain’s (@Digimonkey) brushes seem to get along very well with each other, even to the extent of forming their own choral society, the same can’t be said for his razors. Never a month goes by without one of them being sent in to exile. I’m more than happy to give the Gibbs safe harbour for a week or so. And what a fantastic razor it is. I used it on the N setting and was rewarded with a remarkably smooth and efficient shave. I tend to think of the Rockwell 6C as my smoothest DE razor and the Gibbs is at least a match for that. I will definately be tracking one of these down in 2019 but with the proviso that I buy a metal punch too. Trying to put the notches in a blade with kitchen scissors is not ideal. Especially for someone like me who struggles to change a lightbulb. Cheers Iain.

    Thanks! The handle was supposedly made by @RedHorseman. (I've contacted him to ask, but haven't heard back yet.) It's surprisingly comfortable to hold, too, once you get used to gripping it at the very end.
  18. Sorry i dodnt come on here very often anymore, busy life. Yes it is one of my handles.

  20. image.jpg ~SOTD~ Saturday 13th Jan 08

    Prep ~ Shower, Birch Tar Soap
    Razor ~ Tartara Masamune (Open Comb)
    Blade ~ Lodz Poland Polsilver Stainless
    Soap ~ Haslinger Sheep's Milk Soap (Tallow)
    Brush ~ Omega Boar 011829
    Post ~ Thayers Rose Petal
    Scent ~ Serge Lutens - Chergui

    A good close shave from the OC razor and blade no doubt helped along by the outstanding Haslinger Soap. (Tallow)
    A mistake in my opinion to change what is a good and well regarded soap to tallow free! I'm sure I'm not the only customer that Haslinger will lose!!!

    Have a great weekend people.
