I just couldn’t decide which razor to use today…either the steampunk predatory Leaf with its multiple weapons, or the slick, smooth curve and flexibility of the dangerous Supply SE.

I decided that they would have to decide amongst themselves, but as you can see …it cost me one of my favourite brushes:eek:

The actual shave involved the Supply for a first pass (on plate 2) and the Leaf to finish off (Nacet in slots 1 and 2) with the Yaqi 'Heavy Metal' brush, Proraso Green shaving soap, Proraso Green AS and balm.

There was no blood loss during the shave and no brushes were harmed in the making of the photo;)

Have a great evening all(y):)

Hump Day and the middle of the week has arrived. I don’t mind Wednesday as I treat it as the tipping point...all down hill to the weekend! AS-D2 again today loaded up with a Precision SS on its second use. Really want to see how this polymer coated beauty will do. Last shave with it in the AS-D2 was stellar!

Soap today Ariana & Evans Cafe au Lait. What a great scent filled with rich milk chocolate and coffee goodness. Not the new base but this soap lathers so easily, is super slick and just makes the shave so good. The matching AS carries the same great scent and is great skin food post shave.

Slow and leisurely was the shave all the while enjoying that chocolate & coffee scent. Four passes (why not?) and a beautiful BBS finish. Again the Precision (off brand Personna) performed admirably. No issues noted from the alum block and smooth and comfortable as can be. I don’t know if I would say they are any better or worse than other Personna Blades or that you could find them in numbers large enough or at a cheap enough price to buy in bulk but I got these two tucks of 10 at a thrift store and they have been very good so far.

Now to finish it all off I reached for D&G The One. I believe the tobacco and ambergris in the base notes allows it to go so well with the soap and AS. Just a great match for me.

So there you go a great mid-week shave! Hope you all enjoy the day and stay safe!
