Rooney 2/1 Faux Horn Finest (22/52)
Penhaligon's English Fern shaving soap (tallow)
Paradigm 17-4
Wilkinson Chromium 'Light Brigade' (4)
Houbigant Fougère Royale aftershave (vintage)

Wonderful. I really like the variety of items in my monthly rotation, but in terms of overall experience plus final result, I can't imagine a better shave than today's.
Good evening all.

My little effort this evening consisted of:

Pre- Proraso Red
Cream- Ingrams (Egyptian)
Brush- Omega Bristle
Razor- Rockwell 6S (R3)
Blade- Astra SP (6)
Post- Myrsol Emulsion
Splash- Floïd Mentally Vigorous

Cracking shave this evening, very impressed with Ingrams Cream. Easy to lather and gives a nice tingle to the skin when applied.
The Astra SP blade was on its 6th outing and performed brilliantly,
I tried the R1 plate last night for the first time with 24 hours growth and it achieved absolutely nothing. The sink was bare. I think I'll stick to the R3 unless I leave shaving for more than a couple of days.

I hope you all have a great weekend, stay safe.

The weekend is upon us and not a minute too soon! Today I decided to visit with The Beast! The Muhle R41 was my second ever DE and I love it for what it is...a destroyer of stubble! I have taken to using it with an iKon 80mm bulldog handle as opposed to its stock handle which gives me great grip and better balance. Loaded up with a fresh Super-Max.

Today's soap is from the CBL soaps line of fine products, Fresh Vetiver. I have several CBL soaps but hadn't tried this one yet. Exceptional lather and a fine scent are staple of CBL and this one is no different! Excellent soap and of course I love Vetiver!

A wonderful three pass shave and even the dolphins would cry at this BBS punim! Topped it off with some Fine Fresh Vetiver AS and Bvlgari Man! Oh yes Friday you are my second favourite “f” word but I love you more today!

Take care, safe travels if you can travel and stay safe!

I swapped out the #2 plate for the #3 and was rewarded with a very smooth close shave, obviously my technique has improved and the Supply now delivers a shave on par with the Vintage injectors i have.
A nice face lather today with the Alpha Ti G4 working very well.
A nice post shave leaving me soft supple BBS and smelling real good.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All

That is one gorgeous looking brush. I've had my eye on that brush a few times, haven't pulled the trigger yet.
I was wondering how the knot in it, compares to a Tuxedo knot?
Why did this reply need to be on 3 different (also old) threads?

Because all the SOTD that were showing the brush, were from different people and I was wanting opinions from the different owners on it. I thought that would have went without saying.
