What can only be described, in my opinion, as a flawless shave. Cold water prep, cold soap, cold water rinse. Done. No issues, about 10 days' worth of growth mown down (yes, I did look somewhat 'shaggy'), so I'm clean for the next few days. Close and comfortable, can't ask for more than that!
Pre: Warm water face wash
Brush: Anbbas Boar

Razor: Gibbs No.15 on 4

That was an excellent start to the week.
The Italians know a thing or two about budget software, skin's smooth and feeling great.
Happy Shaving one and all.

New brush from Vig Shaving makes its debut today. I just love this handle style.
Jabonman ‘Orange, Ylang Ylang ‘
Envy Shave ‘8 Ball’
Timeless .95 SB dimpled handle
Biotherme Aquapower moisturiser
Cracking shave with the great smelling soap on a sunny morning which lifts the spirits for the day ahead, find the Jabonman best leathered up using a synthetic brush to eliminate air bubbles.

Razor Master "Ari".

Stirling margaritas in the arctic arrived, thought I would give it a go. Worked really well, I was not sure how I would like it as I was not impressed with a sample of Mountain Man I tried. Loads of lather, so much slickness. A really good shave today, the Personal Barber cheapo razor worked great. I seem to get a better shave from it than my Edwin Jagger DE89.
I just wish I had ordered the matching Witch Hazel to go with the soap as the smell is wonderful, will be great when the UK finally starts to get some sun.

Omega Via Barberia Aquae
Nivea Balm & Davidoff Cool Water
A great shave, the blade can reach 10 uses at least and maybe push a handful more out of it. Been a while since I used both the Aquae and Davidoff, they complement each other very well in my opinion, glad the Aquae never sold in my listing.
A slight mishap after loading the brush I dropped it in a full sink, a few shakes and a lot of work gave a very good lather, slightly wetter than normal but it did a cracking job.
Blade: Schick #3
Razor: PAL Adjustable
Soap: Nuavia Blu
Brush: Black Anvil Custom 2 band finest
Post: D R Harris Arlington Splash
EDC: D R Harris Arlington
A great three pass shave achieve with the brilliant well balanced PAL set on "R" Most Aggressive.
Brush and soap combo worked up a beautiful slick lather with loads of cushion.
A little sunshine today so I went for one of my summer favourites "Arlington." I just wish the fragrance had more longevity on me.
Enjoy your shaves!

Stirling Syn. 26mm
Stirling Baker Street
PAL S/S Adjustable
Schick Proline [ 5 ]
Tuff Green A/S lotion
Today`s Shave confirmed to me why I rate the PAL as one of my Top Injectors. Last Time out I varied the blade settings, and as a result had a rather unsatisfactory shave in terms of comfort/ efficiency.
Today with an excellent Lather and the Razor on a mid setting, it felt good in terms of nice blade feel and efficient whisker removal. Near the end of the Shave by using a light touch to do the polishing up strokes, obtained a superb all round finish.It looks like this and the Type F may well be vying for my top spot in the Injector rankings.
"PAL as one of my Top Injectors"
They say great minds think alike Mike.
I couldn't agree with you more. The PAL is an awesome bit of kit.
Razor - Lord L6
Blade - Voskhod (8)
Brush - Zenith B07
Soap - Arko
Post - RSC Balm
AS - Eyup Sabri Lemon
I generally get around 3 or 4 shaves with a Vosk, but this one seems to have gone much further - I think it was down to using it with 2 very mild heads for the majority of the shaves.
I have used my Zenith B07 for a few soaps and so far I have found it has worked the best with the Arko puck.

Mongoose B3 / Feather Super (8)
Aloe Vera Gel
Picked up this old Merkur to see how it rated against the Legendary Slim, a decent finish on 5, prefer the blade feel & manoverability of the Slim, the Merkur handle is also a touch slippery. Slim wins..
