Another early morning start for me, yet again i have to do another weekend shift at the mill, to bring the work schedule up to date..As always, needs must unfortunately.
A new shave set up to start the weekend...A excellent citrus/menthol themed shave to start the weekend off with a kick to my face sensors.
The Omega Mixed Midget brush is wonderful brush, it's size is very deceiving,as the handle is the midget not the mixed bristles..If your on the fence about buying one of these beauties, go for it, you won't regret it.My only crit with them, is they shread a few hairs on the first couple of outings, which is slightly off-putting, but apart from that it's a excellent brush especially for face lathering.
Earlier this year i was introduced to SE vintage razors by @patw who kindly gifted me a Ever Ready 1912 (USA) along with Gem blades & an assortment of shaving soap samples which i'm eternally grateful for.
After that, i got a very extreme bout of RAD, i aquired a Every Ready 1912 (UK) Ever Ready 1914 (Brass) and a Every Ready 1924.
After i bought the ER 1914 off Ebay UK i received a private message on my TSR home page from Paul (AKA: @Blademonkey) telling me he was the seller of the 1914, which pleased me even more, because i knew the razor would have been cared for with him having a fond passion for traditional wet shaving, and like myself has great respect for his his razors takes care of his kit
If i had known how wonderfully smooth & efficient the Every Ready SE razors where,when i first ventured into the wonderful world of traditional wet shaving i probably wouldn't have bought a DE razor as these wonderful vintage ladies give such a wonderfully comfortable close shave, fitted with the Gem PTFE blades...Thanks again Pat, for introducing me to the wonderful world of Vintage SE razors.
Everything worked with the shave set up, resulting in a 2 pass +pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of aloe vera gel.
My face is feeling smooth, & smelling devine.
Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen.
