Day 3 of Signature September

Razor- Rex Ambassador
Blade- Voskhod
Brush- Chubby2 Best Badger
Soap- Signature Hibernia
Post- Thayers Cucumber & Ebocorum splash

No shave yesterday so started the Rex on setting 3 for the first pass.
The Voskhod wasn't as smooth as the Personna and gave a lot more audible feedback. In a few areas I could feel some tugging so its maybe not the blade for me in this particular razor. Down to setting 1 for the other 2 passes.

Soap is a nice citrus scent, can really smell the lemongrass through it but I went overboard with the water and had to go back to the tin to top up. Lost 3 hairs off the chubby as well but we live to fight another day.

Have a good night one and all.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: P&C LE 2020 Matilda Rhodium 2-band Silvertip
Soap: Speick
Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: Vintage NOS Gillette Swede (5)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Aqua Velva Ice Blue Aftershave Splash
Scent: Halston Z-14 EdC

This is right up there with the closest shave I have had the pleasure to experience this year. The Vintage Gillette Swede blade is super sharp, but also very smooth.

Rooney 1/2 Ivory Finest (24/53)
I Coloniali shaving soap
Haircut & Shave P076-SB Titanium
Personna Titanium (12)
Barrister & Mann Cologne Russe aftershave

First use of the razor, and I couldn't be more pleased. Even with a blade at the end of its life, it gave me a smooth, close shave to rival those of my Paradigm 17-4 and Wolfman WR2. Definitely superior to a Paradigm Titanium II and my WR1 titanium. If I didn't value the variety of my daily shaving experiences so much, I would be happy selling off all my other razors and just keeping this one. No doubt the great I Coloniali lather contributed too on this warm Indian Summer morning...
Good evening everyone, I hope you’re all well.

Pre- Barts Grapefruit and Pink Pepper ASL
Brush- Yaqi 26mm Werewolf
Soap- PAA Gondolier
Razor- Yaqi DOC
Blade- Astra SP #9
Balm- Barts Rosemary and Sandlewood

Fairly happy with tonight’s effort. I think the blade has ran its course now so I’m going to keep the Yaqi going for a few more shaves with a different blade, unsure which yet.

Stay safe everyone, keep smiling.
