  4. No such thing as bad weather, just a bad choice of clothing! :) I expect Munnro Bagging is better though if you can see the peaks!

    Afternoon gents,

    Last night’s shave below and my 11th straight shave. This time using a Krahn pass around razor. It’s been around a week since my last disaster of a shave and there were still a couple of spots (ingrown hairs) that still hadn’t fully recovered. That last shave really dented my confidence in SR shaving, but with the pass around razors arriving I couldn’t NOT go at it again. Nishy recommended I use the Krahn first as it’s the smoothest razor of the lot. This was great advice. It struggled on a couple of spots as obviously had quite a bit of growth, but the majority of the shave was smooth. The razor never felt like it was going to bite or nick me, really pleasant shave and a full two passes on my entire mug resulted in a socially acceptable shave. Not smooth all over, but a decent result.

    It was my first use of my new (traded) Mervyn Cadman TGN two band Finest - 26x57mm brush and also my first use of 1912 Frankincense. The brush was great, it helped me create one of the thickest Wickham’s lather I’ve ever created and it picked up loads of soap. Generally soft on the face, a bit of scrub, a little scratch, but very little. A great brush and I love the resin, it looks like one of my guinea pigs :D. The soap, performance is classic 1912, the scent is a bit different, I don’t love it, I don’t dislike it, it was just pleasant. Nice relaxing scent for an evening shave though. I think I may be asking if anyone fancies trading it for an Irish Fern or Classic 24 at some point.

    Anyway, it’s Friday, enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to the weekend!

    Merkur Progress + GSB #22, TOBS Sandalwood + Commodore X3, moisturiser to finish. It has been a while since I used the Progress so took me a while to adjust to the angle. Great shave though.

    Brush:
    Vie Long 04503
    Razor: Merkur 34C HD w/ Shark Super Stainless (1)
    Soap: Phoenix and Beau Albion
    Post: Thayers Rose, Aloe Vera Gel & Dior Sauvage

    My first use of the newer 10 week cured soaps and what a difference it makes too. The performance is completely changed, lathers much better and now I can fully appreciate the scent of this soap. No muskiness like previous soaps, I was indifferent to the scent previously but today I have fallen in love with it. Very light and crisp. Can't wait for my next order of Imperial Rum!

    First use of a Shark razor blade in a while, don't think these blades are for me. NO irritation as such but when I applied post there was a slight tingle, could always be from the post and closeness of a shave but with so many blades that I enjoy. These won't be purchased again.

    All in all a great shave and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Flawless. Beard was dispatched with Feather AC Pro wielding MMOC, while the Hussy with fresh Personna cue balled the noggin effortlessly. Some say she's a bad girl... But ain't no way I'm letting her go.[​IMG]

    It was on FB and on ATG... and on TSR I believe! :D:D

    It's a lovely brush, really happy with it and thanks for the kind words! I'll be keeping at SR for sure... I'm too invested not to! It's just bloody disheartening when you have a crap shave
