    Good morning friends,

    Tatara Masamune & Astra Superior Platinum (#2 and out)
    APShave Co. uBrush SilkSmoke 24mm
    Saponificio Bignoli 'Violet', face lather
    Epsilon Blue Mediterranean
    Room temp water spray


    Second shave with the Masamune solid bar. This could easily be my travel razor. The kind of small handle diameter, the overall compactness of the set, and the terrific machining + finish make it a good choice for a 'second' razor. Shave-wise I do not think it is something exceptional. It does the job, the angle of approach (to the face) could be broader, it is not very efficient but it is effective.

    The Bignoli soaps arrived y'day. I gave this soft soap a go just after received, bowl but also face lather, and it is pretty dense - a small quantity goes a long way (in CF style). The Violet appears a tad softer in constitution when compared to the Agrumi, so today I was careful with the brush and decided to load directly from the tub. The Violet scent is slightly on the feminine side, and while it is described as "sweet" I dare say that to me it is just a bit on the 'dark' side. Think of something like C&S O&C style, and personally I do find it interesting to discover a violet variant like that in a shaving soap.

    The Bignioli are really excellent soaps. How do you compare them with Abbate Y La Mantia?

    Also, does the Masamune worth the 200 euro?
