It is vary rarely I use the same set up two days in a row but due to my newly acquired PAL Adjustable I was inspired to use it again.
I was not left disappointed.
Again a wonderful 3 pass BBS Shave. The balance is superb and the razor exceptionally well built. I find myself using the razor almost the same way as one would hold a dining knife, if that makes sense. Thumb and middle finger on the sides with the forefinger over the top. Glides through whiskers with ease and it is particularly good at the difficult areas such as under the nose. Thank you once again @Blackmass for providing me with this awesome piece of kit.
If you are yet to try the Yaqi brush then I strongly suggest you have a go of one. They really are amazing bang for buck. Super soft tips, loads of backbone and great flow through.
I would even go as far to say the handles are better quality than the Maseto but of cause YMMV.
The soap performed its magic and left a lovely post shave feel. Superb face lather with loads of cushion and brilliant Slick N Slide. The scent increases when lathering and I could smell Bay Rum throughout and beyond my shave.
Finished with the witch hazel as I did not feel the need for balm due to the quality of the post shave feel from the soap and applied a generous splash of the wonderful classic that is Joop.
Another Top Draw Shave, Enjoy yours!
Pants and socks, mate! Top draw! With a top draw pic to boot!
Also was it Denali you used or Imperial Rum?
Oops! Imperial Rum it Is.
Thanks for the heads up and your kind words may I add.

A great shave from the mildest of the Micromatics paired with a smooth carbon blade.
A reasonably priced razor and brush, a good blade and an excellent cheap soap, what more do you need?
A floral splash of Clubman, maybe.

Omega 10026 boar
Fitjar Slatteroy -- sample
Gem S/S [ 3 ]
Alum Rub/Rinse off
Pitralon Original A/S Lotion
Now having a Third Vintage SE Shave, after trialling the Sabre V1. Today used the ER 1914, which has a lot of blade feel so that you really feel the whiskers disappear, as it ploughs through them. Always quite surprised how I manage to shave with this quite small razor. The Razor quietens down once the majority of whiskers are eliminated. Am pleased that I had no trouble during the Shave, and the finish was very good. IMHO probably a little better than shaves I have had with a Sabre.
I used a sample cream today, which has a Spicy/ Bay rum scent an though quite pleasant, I do not see me lashing out on a full tub - a bit more than I am prepared to pay.
What’s your thoughts on the Pitralon, Mike?
I know you've ask Mike but I'd like to add my 2 penneth too.
I've only used the 'Classic' (green cap) but I love the stuff. The scent is great but does hang around. The face feel is top draw too.
I can't describe the scent but it's on the 'old skool' side. Citrus and even herbal maybe.
I think we have similar tastes in colognes and I can highly recommend it. Put it this way I've just bought another bottle.
@mpf9ret How do you rate The Original and does the scent last long?
Body Shop Maca Root
Wilkinson Sword old stock Made In England
Lime witch hazel
Yardley 1770 EdT
This blade and razor combo did the trick, helped along by the dependable Body Shop Maca Root Cream.
Very comfortable and relaxed three passes later and my face is svelte once more
Yardley 1770 is a quite complex scent for the price to my nose.

Am not too good on scents,got a hint of pear drops ! Not long lasting but no real sting.
I think this is an Eastern European version, took forever to come.
A hint of Pear drops,short lived scent was OKish.Prefer my Tuff Red.
