    Alu. Claymore + S/S Handle
    Schick Proline [ 1 ]
    Lea After Shave Balsam

    Need to get out this morning , as we both need some reading material so a visit to the Public Library is called for.
    A really nice Shave this morning with a really nice close all round finish.I find that as I have slowed down and shortened my strokes whilst Shaving, I have been getting consistency good Shaves with no problems. I used a balm today rather than an A/S lotion,as my skin felt a bit itchy during the night, and it worked no itch now.

    Pre: Warm water splash
    Brush: Semogue 1470 Boar
    Soap: Stirling Sandalwood
    Razor: Merkur 41c
    Blade: Polsilver Łódź
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, Proraso Red ASL

    The 1904 is a very mild razor but more effective than it lets on.
    The 1470 is my favourite Semogue brush, soft but with plenty of backbone, just right for face lathering.
    The Stirling soap doesn't have four numbers but it rates more than four out of five in my book.
    So, all in all, a smasher of a super smooth Saturday shave.

    Schick E2 Injector - Proline #2
    Morning all,
    It's been a while since I last used the E2 injector. Compared to the more common G type the E2 has a nice amount of bite. :)

    Morning shave

    Olive Oil Soap
    Oleo Soapworks Windy City Barbershop
    Saponificio Varesino 2.0 Cocobolo
    Christopher Bradley Karve D Plate
    Aussie Spoiler (1)
    Fine American Blend Aftershave
    Rive Gauche Pour Homme EDT

    It was nice to have the Karve back after its visits to those discerning gentlemen @Boru62 and @Blademonkey. I’m pleased that they both agree with me. It’s a great razor. The soap was purchased as a result of one of those quite afternoons at work when I think to myself “I’ll have a little browse at Maggards”. Fatal really. My initial assessment of the soap is very favourable, and it’s a good match for the aftershave/EDT combo. Have a great weekend gents.

    Heno Pravia Glycerine Soap
    Proraso Green Tea and Oat Pre Shave
    Nanny's Warm Spice Traditional (Tallow) Soap
    Yaqi 24mm 2 Band Badger Brush
    Muhle R41 (2011) Razor with a 7 O'Clock Permasharp
    Alum and Rinse
    Witch Hazel
    Aloe Vera Gel
    Old Spice AS

    2 passes for a BBS finish. It would have been tempting fate and totally unnecessary to have attempted a third.
    The shave passed the alum test and I am very pleased with the result.

    Enjoy your weekend!
