1914 Patent Anniversary
Jayaruh #289 - Vintage Old Spice - Ever Ready 1914 - Gem SSC #2 - Alum - Old Spice A/S - Dove Nourishing Cream

It was a celebration, so why not an extra pass. I had enough lovely soap on the brush, so it would've been a shame to waste it.
Happy Anniversary !!!!

Yesterday's SOTD...


Razorock Game Changer 0.84
Saponificio Varesino V.2
Saponificio Varesino Stella Alpina bath soap and shaving soap
Lùcido aftershave
Acqua Di Parma Ambra EDCC

Shave report: Stella!

Fantastic shave with my very own Razorock Game Changer. Yes after just one shave with the on loan GC I bought one.

I changed blades from the Gillette Silver Blue to the Polsilver to see if it could amp up the efficiency. Did it? Yes. Three passes and a couple of very minor touch ups and I was done. Very impressed with the GC so far.

The SV soaps were top draw as per usual. I finished off with the Lùcido aftershave (excellent stuff) and seen as I was going "out-out" I topped off the shave with ADP Ambra, which is just bloody gorgeous.

Had a very enjoyable night and more importantly kept off the cigarettes.

Have a good week Gents.




Get the blade to this stage;

Then pull it towards you whilst carefully moving it down and you'll feel it lock in.

Thanks for the explanation and pictures Kevin........I sacrificed a few shaves on the installed blade (Ballymena Upbringing!) and reinstalled with a fresh one. It took a little more pressure than I would have used without your guidance.....but it works!

  • Straight Razor: Schild - 15/16 O2 Micarta
  • Shaving Brush: Dogwood Handcrafts - Malachor Hybrid - 26mm Fan (Silvertip Badger)
  • Shaving Soap: PannaCrema - Nuàvia ?
  • After-Shave: Declaration Grooming - Unscented Liniment
Question to fellow Pannacrema users...which one would you pick? And why?
I have had samples of all of them and settled on purchasing the blue mainly due to its gorgeous complex scent. Second would be the red again solely due to scent. All are fantastic performers.

Great pic as usual Chris. :okay:

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Emillion 1 Porcelain Finest (24/51)
Houbigant Fougère Royale shaving soap (vintage)
Wolfman WR1-SB Titanium/UFO Little Titan
Polsilver Super Iridium (4)
Houbigant Fougère Royale aftershave (vintage)

The old soap makes wonderful lather, and its fragrance is subtle but still present. The razor head and handle make a great combination.
