Wolfman WR2 (on loan)
Gillette Platinum
AP Shave Co SynBad
Moon Soaps Sorrento
Fine Accoutrements Italian Citrus aftershave

First time using Moon soaps.
Scent: Positives, no tallow smell. Negatives, next to no scent at all, to my nose anyway.
@Martini

Soap base: Excellent! Very easy to create a lather with a lovely gloss and very slick with good protection.

With the slickness and protection a great shave was had with the Wolfman on loan from @halvor .

Cheers
Rob

A quick kitchen sink shave (watching the Giro on tv)

PS-Soap Generic
Soap-ES Natural cream*
Brush- Big Jock
Blade-Rockwell*
Razor-Rockwell 6s
AS-Lea

Despite impersonating a spin drier didnt get a good lather and I'm wondering if its my slightly hard water? One of my neighbours farms has a spring which has (according to ancient locals) miraculous properties water into wine, liquid viagra, total immersion gives everlasting life etc. Apart from the latter extras its supposed to be amazingly soft water so might shave using it and put my theory to the test.

*I got hold of a 6S and using the 4 plate got a pleasant result. I'm usually wary of supplied blades after unfortunate results with Merkur but no complaints with these.

Schick Proline [ 8 ]
Jaguar Prestige A/S Lotion

Used the little Muhle again, it really can work out a quick copious lather out of these little pucks.Find it very hard not to get a good Shave with The ATT SE-1 , with a lather like today it was a doddle and quick too.

Hadn’t used the Prosaso in a while—it proved a good way to start my day. Me thinks, I’ll have to use it more frequently.

A very nice 2 pass shave for a DFS+ finish.
I know the original owner of this DS Cosmetics brush did not like it but for me it works a treat and will always be in the rotation, thank you Chris @Boycie83.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
How do the half blade and AC Shavettes compare Tony ?
