What was his SOTD set up?

What does he really think about Arko?
Hi Shubs

Being only 2 -1/2 he used an unloaded Ikon 102, and we shared the soap and brush

Both of us are yet to try Arko, I'm quite ashamed to say (although when in Turkey I've had barbers use it on me) - I've been meaning to but some Arko for years
I'm sure Alexander would approve of it too !

Genuinely love this razor even with a feather blade it produces a soft, smooth and effortless shave! The soap and splash pair smell great. A fab start to the day!

An Ikon's out of my comfort zone but a Yaqi synth's a good beginner for any newb.

I imagine he managed to get a DFS after one pass, maybe even BBS?

I'm surprised he doesn't already have an opinion regarding Arko, but if he enjoys using shaving soaps from Belarus there's no reason to change for now at least.

Just a terrific lather from this soap. Nice aromatic scent, very creamy and slick stuff...just love this...
Shave with razor paired with the excellent blade at setting 9-7-7 was smooth and comfortable in 3passes for a mostly bbs finish. Aftershaves were good as usual.
