- Martin de Candre, shaving soap.
- Lijun finest DB 24.
- Slant bakelite.
- Astra superior platinum.
- Floïd mentolado vigoroso, after shave lotion.

Good shaving. Easy and good leather with the MdC and the softness of the lijun two bands tips. Too much backbone but using the tips only, it's nice.
The slant-bakelite, soft and effective.
Strong scents wich are in my particular shaving olympus.

Have a nice day.

Prep: Tepid shower
Lather: RazoRock XXX - face lather
Brush: Muhle Black Fibre
Razor: Gem OCMM
Blade: Treet Carbon (1); 3 passes
Post: Cold water rinse; Osage Rub; Finest Menthol of Krampert

Carbon blades definitely seem sharper to start than their SS counterpart. Once I learn if I can prevent early onset rust then I will know if a bulk buy is in order or not.

Blade: Treet DuraSharp
Brush: Omega 31025 "Scarlatti" Boar
Soap or Cream: Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Taylor’s Sandalwood Splash

An excellent shave on this beautiful Sunday morning. MWF is great stuff and one of my favorite soaps, always leaving my face feeling relaxed and refreshed. The Taylor’s Sandalwood splash provided a fine, fragrant finish and I’m ready for the day.

Super Speed/Rapira day 4
Super Max SC
Svoboda AS Balsam
Floid Classic AS

What can I say - another very enjoyable shave, and this time with a new cream from Bulgaria which is apparently sold all over Europe. Lots of lather with a beautiful scent which is identical to another cream called Solo Menthol. This Super Max cream however has no cooling sensation although menthol is listed as an ingredient. I received great cooling from the Svoboda balsam and Floid aftershave, and I'll need it, because it is hot here again today. Sorry for the lack of photos - I'll make up for it tomorrow, I promise!

First time with the OSMA soap! I really can't understand why this soap don't get more attention in the international forums. The lather is easy to obtain, with a really good glide (perhaps its best characteristic) and an excellent protection, well above the average. My skin doesn't react very well to alum blocks, but reacts very well with this soap. A keeper, and an excellent addition to my rotation. Smile
