New brush handle feels good in hand and a pleasure for face lathering with the soft bristles.

Shaving recipe for today.

Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.


Cold wet flannel to my face.

Simple ~ Sensitive Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.

Brush : Turkish Unbranded Boar.

Face Lather.

Frankensoap : (Grated) Arko Shave stick + Dettol Original Anti Bacterial Bar Soap & Palmolive Classic Shave Stick.

Blade: Personna Gem PTFE. (4)

Razor: Ever Ready 1924.


Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint Lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Arko ~ Cool ASL/Cologne + Aftershave Balm.

Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.


The Every Ready 1924 i find the most assertive of all the Ever ready SE razors which took a few shaves adjusting to it's assertiveness. The 1924 holds quite a lot of water in the cap head when rinsing but a quick shake removes it instantly. Just like my other SE razors this vintage lady provides a pleasurable irritation-free comfortable shave, today was no exception.

An enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Arko ~ Cool Aftershave Balm.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
