Yesterday’s shave with Ach Brito Mogno reminded me so much of TGS Abysso, I thought I’d use Abysso today to gauge the similarity or difference...

Pre-shave: Hot waffle towel | Ach Brito Glyce Lime soap
Shaving soap: TGS Abysso (face lathered)
Brush: Razorock ‘Atomic Rocket’ synthetic (First use of my newest brush)
Razor: Barbarossa Brothers gold razor head (thanks @Tony'schin) | Rainbow fibre handle | Gillette Nacet blade
Post-shave: Cold waffle towel | Alum | Cold water rinse | Dry waffle towel | TGS Abysso AS splash

Overall: A very similar sensory experience to yesterday’s shave, so thoroughly enjoyable. I do find the Abysso and Mogno soaps similar in scent and performance so, for me, the Mogno wins out simply because of its price.

Yet another superb Razorock synthetic brush and a very cool traditional design.

The Barbarossa Brothers razor head was comparable to the EJDE89, maybe a tad more aggressive but not uncomfortably so. Also …it’s gold ffs!…what’s not to like?

Have a great evening all (y) ;):)

The thanks should go to @Boycie83 who originally PIF'd it to me.
Looks good on that handle, I would not have gotten around to using it.
Glad it worked well.
