Soap - Extro Legno Di Sandalo
Brush - YaqI Chianti 24mm Synthetic
Razor - Rockwell 6C R4
Blade - RapIra Super Stainless (2)
Post - Extro Legno Di Sandalo ASL/EdT

I'm liking this Extro soap/croap. From the scent to post shave feel, it's very good.
The proto lather initially seems very light and airy, but soon works in to quite a dense protective lather.
It doesn't seem to need a lot of water, and is easy to whip up.
The matching ASL/EdT, at first, has a sort of synthetic whiff about it, but once settled it's a nice scent which is quite long lasting.

At the start of the week I had never used a feather blade. Now six shaves in, the blade has continued to deliver great shaves with a variety of my vintage razors. I am really impressed and will continue to use these blades for the rest of June. Then I can determine whether they are a permanent addition to my rotation. I will be looking for each blade to consistently deliver 5-7 comfortable shaves before being swapped out.

Good luck on the 5-7 shaves per blade with a Feather. I like them as a blade but if you can get more than 3 then you are doing well. It has always been one of the biggest minus points about Feathers.

I will say if you are 6 in at the moment then you are on the road to miracles
