Prep: Shower with PAA cube menthol.

Pre: PAA cube unscented.

Soap: Stirling Orange Chill.

Brush: PAA Phantom Aerolite Synthetic Shaving Brush.

Razor: Hone 15a.

Blade: Astra SP.

Post: Alum and Baxter’s aftershave balm.

I recently picked up another Stirling soap, and I prefer this to citron version I have already, but it might be a seasonal thing. Regardless another great scent and shave from Stirling and hone 15a combo!
Love the brush!

So, are you preferring the H15a or it’s brass elder brother?❓

Razor = Feather AS-D2
Blade = London Bridge ( 3 )
Brush = Turn n Shave 28mm Boar
Soap = The Watchman By Zingari Man with matching Splash & balm.

Absolutely first class shave tonight
The weather in Norway hs been pretty stormy with a lot of rain over the past couple of days so i opted for the appropriate The Watchman.
A Cold Water shave and first cold water shave in a while & it turned out fantastic.
Every time i have a cold water shave i absolutely love it then i forget all about it and go for a warm shave next time around.
i guess i’m a creature of habit.
Third & last use for me on the London Bridge but i reckon i could get another 2 possibly 3 shaves no problem.
I’m looking forward to the next couple of days i have two colleagues arriving in norway with contraband for me
namely some shaving soaps lol
My wife made the effort and went to their houses with my parcel.

It’s like trying to choose between your kids! The 15a is ideal for a quick, less time and less to think about shave, the weight of the brass 15 marginally gives a slightly closer shave I’d say, but your need to take slightly more care! Basically 15a for speed and 15 for efficiency and more time to enjoy the shave. I love them both! I’m not sure if @Hone did different length handles but my brass is much longer than the 15a handle. I think if they did a shorter one it would suit me even more, if that were possible! Neither will leave the den that’s for sure and I will be getting the steel when it’s out too!

Razor • ATT SE1 Aluminium
Blade • Kai Protouch MG (1)
Post • Lynx Dark Temptation ASL

My first shave with a new to me ATT SE1 fresh from The Emporium, thank you @Boycie83
A fresh Protouch MG on board, It was immediately apparent that this razor is very smooth.
Given that it's a relatively light razor, I was surprised that I didn't feel the need to apply any real pressure which could lead to irritation.
First pass seemed to be over in a trice, and it was apparent that this is an efficient razor.
Second pass ATG (my usual routine) again, was a fleeting affair. BBS finish - even on the neck area (multiple growth direction sometimes takes a little extra work)
First impression after one shave is that I will get on well with this capable lightweight SE.
