Probably the wrong place to ask, but I noticed in your SOTD you used a Bolzano blade. I've always been curious about them, care to provide a quick review?

A lovely morning after the dreadful two weeks of rain, followed with a lovely two pass shave, and minor touch up.

This morning:

- Veleiro Pre-Shave Soap
- 66-60 Hautnähröl
- GZD Shaving Stick
- Vie-Long 2-Band Foroafeitado Edition 2012
- Feather Artist Club RG with Feather Professional Super
- Dior Eau Sauvage After Shave Lotion
- The Handmade Soap Company After Shave Soothing Cream

The GZD shaving stick is definetely too soft to use as a stick. But it worked very well, if you like a scent very close to the Arko stick.

Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS
Pe Re Ja Cologne

What a shave, what a shave, what a shave - this new brush I have is awesome. It really whipped the Derbylux cream into rich, fragrant, cooling lather. My Super Speed/Rapira combination cleaned me up so well, and the Aqua Velva added a good menthol bonus. The Pe Re Ja cologne is very refreshing and enjoyable.
