Good Morning Gentlemen,

It's a sunny day in Antalya. A nice shower and a BBS shave is a great way to start the day. I listened to 'curb your enthusiasm OST' while shaving, it's an uplifting soundtrack.

Absolutely beautiful shave from this razor, one of two straights i own with full hollow ground blades, or singing blades as some people like to call them, and they are without doubt the sharpest razors i've ever owned for a traditional straight, the Feather AC - SS is another matter.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Thater Stout 2
Soap or Cream: Mitchell's Wool Fat
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Alt Innsbruck Splash

A typically close and smooth shave with the Futur/Astra/MWF combo. The Alt Innsbruck, in addition to its fragrance, added to the already good skin feel. From start to finish, this was a great shave!

Kolynos Regular SC
Hega AS
Brut Cologne

I was thinking of my 2nd "home away from home" which is Thessaloniki, Greece this morning and I wanted to take a nice "nostalgic shave" and this Kolynos Regular cream delivered fantastic lather with really good skincare. The scent is very flowery - in fact it's identical to C&E Almond, so it's very pleasant. The Hega aftershave is very neutrally-scented, so it won't disrupt the scent of any cologne or eau de toilette. Even though it has no menthol, it has a cooling effect.

No, unfortunetly it's not a new one. It's a vintage shaving cream made in former East Germany and it is at least more than 20 years old.

But the lather was good and it smells like cedarwood.

GEM Ted Pella 121-1
Gem SS ptfe (1)
Kramperts Finest Bay Rum

Blade test of another Ted Pella blade that I was sent, that is not the accepted blade for shaving. OK, so that didn't last long. It's a window scraper blade. I installed a good blade and I was off to the races.

Gentlemen, today's shave was a revelation:

That my Le Grelot in the black buffalo horn scales is about as sweet a razor in every way as I've had, and I've had some beauties.
That my handsome Muhle Stylo butterscotch DE must have been designed for me for absolute comfort and close shave.
That the matching Muhle Stylo butterscotch silver tip brush is a beauty in looks and an odd duck in function for being floppy with a handle that weighs a ton and is an ergonomic bust.
That the double edge blades Super Iridium and Gillette 7 O' Clock "SharpEdge" yellows share the crown in my humble shave den.
That Xpec original is an exquisite shave cream.
That Schwarzweisskeramik is the most perfect scuttle I have owned, and I have owned a series of scuttles.
And that today's shave was worthy of a king.

Razor: Le Grelot in the black buffalo horn scales
Razor: Muhle Stylo DE in the butterscotch handle
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Muhle Style silver tip in the butterscotch handle
Cream: Xpec original
Scuttle: Schwarzweisskeramik
Witch hazel
Balm: Coral Skin Food by Trumper
Aftershave: Zino by Davidoff
Music: Piano Concerto No. 3 by Rachmaninov
Finisher: Ethiopian Harrar coffee and the New York Times
