The last shave of this rotation with the B2 and what a shave it was. I started with a 3 pass cold-water shave.
The CR Salter is working a treat and i am going to push myself to keep using it, i have been overloading either the brush or the bowl just to make a dint in it. I am up to 45 shaves so far, it is the oldest (10 ish?) shaving product i have as i got it to use when i went through my Str8 faze.
The shave itself was as smooth as silk, i seem to have the angle dialed in and i had no issues whatsoever, a quick splash then straight in the shower. After a dry off, a splash of Witch Hazel and then carried on with my Normal post shave routine.
I am truly smooth, comfortable and feeling really good.
Now then " what am i going to do to spruce this razor up?"
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.

Update:-
a light clean with some Autosol.

Despite its weight the Hiram fits very comfortably in my hand, more so than my late King Cobra. Also it consistently delivers a better Shave too. I cannot help myself reaching for this inexpensive brush, the handle design makes it a delight to hold and use. plus of course the knot really works too.

Semogue 830 - Torino Forti Sensazioni - Focus R28 Slim Al - Yardley Gentleman Classic EDP

Something simple today. I think I have yet to find an Italian Barber Soap which doesn't deliver....and the more I use the Slim Al....the better it gets!
2 passes and a touch up for a 'Face Feeling ' result :)
