A very good scent from the soap. The performance was satisfactory...
Shave with razor paired with the blade was good but somehow less efficient. Nicely smooth and comfortable for 3passes without any issues for between dfs to ccs result. Super post & aftershaves. Rating 9.5/10

(Vintage DE Week.)

Another new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend.

I haven't gave my vintage DE razors a run out for a while. Starting the weekend of in style with my 1940's flat bottom tech paired together with the Gillette NOS 94 blades which i have infrequently used made a smooth non-aggressive yet efficient, vintage duo.

A very comfortable shave 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable /near BBS shave with no errors to report...The vintage Gillette 'NOS 94' SSP blade performance was brilliant slicing through my stubble with effortless ease...Finishing the shave off with small dollop of Morrisons ~ Fresh Aloe Moisture Lotion.

Shave of the day 9th January 2021.

Razor - Karve SS C
Blade - Polsilver Stainless - Lodz Poland
Soap - Eufros - Rosa -Oud - Tallow
Brush - Synthetic from Steven Jagger
Post - Thayer's Astringent
Frag - Floris of London - A Rose For..... EdP

A good smooth shave was had, the lovely Synthetic brush was made by our very own Steven Jagger - @Steven_Jagger , the handle is out of this world, lovely warm rich colours and very comfortable in the hand, perfect! It easily whipped up a luxurious lather from the equally wonderful Shave soap from Manuel Garcia Ferrer who is world famous for his Eufros soaps, this one being the Rosa-oud.
The stainless steel Karve Razor from Christopher Bradley of Karve Shaving in Canada was paired with an old favourite of mine the Polsilver Stainless from the old factory in Lodz Poland and this pairing works so well for me.
You could say it was the perfect shave!
A splash of Thayer's Astringent as an aftershave and I was done.
Although in lockdown and the chances are I will not see anyone today will not put me off from wearing a little EdP from Floris of London and smelling great, this one is a lovely Rose scent called " A Rose For......"
Well, for me of course! :)
Take good care of yourselves and keep safe.
Until the next time.......
