A nice and leisurely shave with excellent results. Another vouch for the made by Valobra soap.
A great subtle scent in a tremendous base. All good.

Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday chaps.

Soap & Aftershave Stirling Ozark Mountain
Brush Boti 24mm Lemon Candy
Razor Henkels & Friodur 472
Missed Stirlings & a straight so grab the 2 and head out for a short trip although just arrived home after 2 weeks at sea.
Outstanding lather & scent from the soap, brush, and splash combination.
Enjoyed a great shave with this excellent razor...the edge was buttery smooth and crisply keen...
Yesterday's shave:
These Winfield blades are new to me and I couldn't find anything about them online. They say made in Gt. Britain on the back of their plastic dispensers so could be from the Permasharp factory, as this is what they did on their blades. Sheffield-made or Cramlington-made blades would say made in England.
Based on one shave from one shave in one razor they are sharp and quite smooth, but I've had smoother. I'm looking forward to trying it in the Eclipse Red Ring.

I still love the scent of the Spartacus!

27 May

Geo F Trumper Eucris
Simpson Trafalgar T3
Rex Ambassador (3)
Treet Platinum
Geo F Trumper Eucris skin food
Geo F Trumper Eucris edt

Excellent. Two smooth, comfortable passes with the Rex set on 3. No sense of danger at all on this setting with this blade. The Trumper’s cream and skin food performed admirably, and the edt added more to plenty.
Ps. Missed Sunday too busy or too forgetful;


The Blackland Vector is a great little razor.
