A new shave set up to start the weekend...I always look forward to using the Scottish Fine Classic shaving Soap, which i bloomed in some hot tap water for 5 minutes, before loading up the brush, and using the bloom water as a extra pre-shave, then additionally rubbing the puck directly into my stubble like a shave stick adding a small amount of water to the tips of the brush between each pass..Like MWF, Kent it's post shave feeling is fantastic, which always makes the shave a pleasurable experience...Superb shaving soap.

Another 3 pass + pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of aloe vera gel.

My face is feeling smooth, & smelling devine.

Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen.

Yesterday’s lime fragranced shave was so good that I went for a repeat, but used a Razorock brush and the fabulous Progress razor from Merkur. Once again a super, smooth shave was the result. Great stuff.

Three days after my ultra close Streamline result, I shaved with my favourite 1912, which gave me another superb shave.

Be well everyone.

This is rather a nice little Razor which I enjoy Shaving with, though being on the light side for me affects the
quality of the finished Shave. Though the Shave is smooth, because of my coarse beard I end up with a "Good going to Work" Shave, rather than a " Special Occassion" Shave. I reckon that it would be a superb daily shaver for those with lighter beard growth. Still not a bad result on a waning blade.

Hello Folks; hope everyone’s well.

RazoRock Plissoft 24mm
Phoenix and Beau Baskerville
ER 1914
Gem SS w/rubber band shim
Thayer’s Cucumber and Aloe Vera
Fine Fresh Vetiver after shave

3 day’s worth of bristles jettisoned with the 1914. Whilst I can’t hold it in the same esteem as my English 1912 and Streamline razors, it does the business.

Great performance as always from the P&B Baskerville and feeling very smooth. Cool, too; with the ever-dependable Fresh Vetiver.
