Brush: Omega 10018 Boar
Shaving Soap: Wickham 1912 Magnum
Aftershave Balm: Baylis & Harding Black Pepper & Ginseng

A very satisfying shave. Near BBS finish with no cuts, nicks or weepers, I'd call that a result.

Enjoy your shaves, gents.

Using the DIY soap by @Sid James and loving every second. It’s perrorming more solidly now it’s a week or so old and I’m sure it’ll improve a little further. Plenty of slickness and a decent heft of scent from some Baccarat Rouge 540 duplicate oil. I don’t think I’d need anything else as this is ticking all the boxes for me right now. Good work big S.
This is interesting ... if you make soap for yourself it can be frangranced with a copy oil. I feel some investigation brewing. :woot:

RazoRock Plissoft - Speick soap (grated) - GEM Junior (baton handle) - GEM S/S Coated #3 - Alum - Speick A/S - Dove Instant Hydration cream

The baton handle may look unwieldy to some. In fact when I first saw it I thought it looked weird. Boy, I was so wrong. It is wonderful to shave with. Comfortable and easy to manoeuvre round the face. Plus it gave me an excellent result today.

A great way to end the week. The tallow and lanolin WS shave stick is streets ahead of the unworkable (for me) blue bowl.
Happy Shaving one and all.
