14 July 2018

Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
Razor: PAL Injecto-Matic
Blade: Chick (23)
Brush: Omega 10018 Boar
Shaving Soap: MWF
Aftershave Balm: Rock Face Shave Butter
Aftershave: Brut Original

I thought I may have detected a hint of blade tug this morning but the combo went on to deliver a near BBS and survive another day. I finished with Brut Orignal AS and topped up with a dash of Brut Body Splash, for old times' sake.

Have a good weekend.

Stefan, the Tatara is a very smooth razor and with a Wizamet IS, very mild. I'd certainly rate the Karve on a D plate more aggressive. Interestingly, the razor is supplied with Feather blades. I know they work exceptionally well in the EJ89 so I hope tomorrow with a Feather will be more to my liking. Early days.

This is my first Stirling soap and I am very impressed on first use. The pineapple scent is lovely although the menthol could be a tad stronger for my taste. Lather generation is simple, is stable and has good slickness. I'd put the post-shave slightly below my favourites, but nothing unacceptable. I'll find out soon if the Orange Chill has more menthol.
The glacial range David is heavily mentholated. MITA and executive man (Green Irish Tweed replica) are my favourite scents. A soap that punches well above its price point. Cushion isn't overly impressive but slickness is excellent.

Out with a bang. My last shave with this razor before it goes to it's next victim, and what a cracker! Once the angle is dialled in, a super shave is guaranteed!

A quick comment on the soap, again rather poor. Enough slip for the shave, but no residual slickness. Nice post shave feel, soft with no greasiness. Zero scent.

An early morning shave today as it was the local agricultural show.
Two passes and just a little touch up gave a lovely shave and to top it off...I had a couple of seconds in the horticultural section!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

First go with the borrowed CJB. Seems to fit me much better than folding straights or feather ones. A bit irritated but pretty smooth after 3 passes.
