Does vintage soap and splash count?

I said it in my last shave - I love injectors. If I was alive (and a man of shaving age) in the 70s, these Schicks would have been my tool of choice.

Sex Panther would have been my scent of choice!

I'm going to start participating here at My first full face shave for a while as I hacked off my beard today. I'll finish the month with a few vintage razors.

Here's my SOTD

*****

13/1/21

Brush - Omega 11819
Soap - Vitos Red Coco
Razor - Gillette New OC
Blade - Gillette 7 Yellow
Post - Cien Aqua
AS - Brut Oceans

It seemed like for a vintage themed month it would be right to use a boar brush, and gave my well broken in and favourite brush the Omega 11819 a go today, and even though it's not a vintage soap - Vitos Red seems like a very old fashioned tallow shaving soap.

Now onto the shave, last night I hacked my 3 month old beard to Grade 1 with clippers, and today I cleared the remaining stubble/stragglers the Gillette New OC paired with a 7 Yellow in 3 passes. I'm really impressed with the Gillette New OC, it's the most efficient vintage Gillette I own, and it was very smooth paired with the 7 Yellow, a blade I find to be a bit too much in some razors but worked a delight with the New OC.

Apologies for the picture quality. The razor handle, brush and soap are all from a Boots Monogram gift set, the bowl etc. possibly being gold coloured brass. The handle is a Contour/Atra type but markedly shorter (an inch or so) than the Gillette original. The brush is declared to be pure bristle; the soap may very well be a Yardley. Teamed with a Wilkinson (non-lube strip) Profile blade. All, probably, late 70s or early 80s. The reason for the Schick blades is that the cart couldn't cope with 3 days' growth - the blades are too close together - so I had to resort to my slant :D

Gillette New Standard 1328024 Patent Anniversary 13/01/1920

Wash with French Pink Clay & Charcoal soap
Lather up with Wickham's 1912 Gothic Revival & RazoRock 400 (Limited Edition) w/Plissoft Noir 24mm
Shave with Gillette 1920s New Improved & Gillette London Bridge Super Stainless (2)
Hot rinse, cold rinse & Wickham's Gothic Revival Aftershave​

The more keen-eyed amongst you will notice the screw in key is not original. I got the razor as part of a mixed box of bits and broken. The razor itself cleaned up really nicely and seemed worth commissioning a replacement key. It's solid stainless, so heavier in the tail and lightening what is otherwise quite a heavy head.
