My second outing with my revamped ATT SE-G, as was to be expected I concentrated on the neckline where it did not go that well yesterday. Today the Shave was smooth and comfortable and the overall finish
was very good, I noted that the Shave Time was about average for any SE shaves made by me.

Morning SOTD:
Washed with warm water and olive soap
Hot towel compress for 1 minute
Quickly beat the foam in the bowl with a shaving brush pre-soaked in hot water
Shave, Rex Ambassador razor with Feather blade: WTG on # 3, XTG on # 3.5, ATG on # 4
Then I rinsed with cold water, soaked my face with a towel, and after waiting for about a minute I applied a balm.

A high-performing Russian shaving cream, from the good old TSR days and the two plus years I spent in Riga, Latvia. Very poor scent profile, clearly lags behind in slickness (as we now know slickness thanks to so many artisan soaps) - but cushion is tops and the lather is old fashioned style ultra-stable.

An indulgent Saturday morning shave. The brush was acquired from @Sid James and is beautiful. Thanks Steve, you’re a gent. Three very leisurely passes for as smooth as you like. Great this hobby of ours isn’t it? Have a lovely weekend gents.
