Nice refreshing shave today using the Arlington soap and also washed my hair with their matching shampoo bar, great stuff. I am running down my stock of DE blades as now favouring SE razors, especially the Feather AC. I will decide whether to hang onto my AS-D2 or pass it on, still a very nice comfortable shave.
Hang on to your AS-D2, I let my one go and ended up regretting it a couple of years later and had to buy another one, you may fancy a DE shave sometime down the line. :) P.

Friday's Shave

Razor: Dovo Master
Brush: Shavemac 24mm Synthetic Fan
Soap: Baume.be
Pre: African Black Soap
Aftershave: Aqua Velva
ASB: Bart's Bergamot and Vanilla
EDT: CK Obsession

What a lovely shave the Baume.be is a fantastic cream , it doesn't produce vast volumes of lather but it produces a lovely layer that is both Slick and Adds Cushion, the Dovo Master is really shaving well which pleases me as it is one I reset and honed myself.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Super Shave X Platinum blade
Signature Soaps Vectis

Have had shaves with four of @BrianH soaps and must say, that the performance is consistent between the range.
The soaps perferm very well indeed. And the scents I have tried are nice too.
My ususal soap is MdC and Signature Soaps performs at least on par with MdC - really impressive!

First time for me trying out Zingari Man. Good soap, pleasant lightly scented, nice lather, slick, very good conditioning feel on the face. I like it. The Outlaw razor gets better with every shave. Yaqi brush was great. Not a perfect shave but still, really enjoyable. Have a great weekend.​

The infamous fatboy pass around landed with me and the razor didn't disappoint. Started off on setting 8 for my first pass, knocked down to 4 for the 2nd pass and finally setting one for the final pass and touch ups. Hard to believe this razor is 60 odd years old!

Has a lovely weight to it and outperformed my expectations. I didnt want to own a vintage razor but I can see myself wanting one in the future.
While using it I was thinking I wonder how many hands this has been in and how many shaves it has completed. Amazing.

I'll try different blades in it while I have the razor and hope get to enjoy the shaves as much as I did this one. A happy shaver tonight and my new battle with the Merkur progress will just have to wait for another while!

Have a good weekend one and all.
