Mastro Livi Inox, 8/8 Extra Full Hollow, Irish Point

Yesterday I received a phone call from Mastro Livi and he told me he finished making my straight razor so I could go there and pick up it. I am glad he could make my razor within this week, despite Mastro Livi is very busy in organizing his participation to the Culter Expo in Milan - the most important knife exhibition in Italy - where he will be showing a lot of new razors and products, not to mention a special barbershop where visitors can enjoy a free shave with Mastro Livi razors and brushes as well as the newest Cella shaving products. I will be there of course as this is something I do not want to miss. The latest Mastro Livi razor I added to my collection is a super marvelous shaver. It is made of stainless steel and I wanted the blade to have an Irish point and scales made of amaranth wood as I like its purple color. The razor is a superb shaver and, thanks to the extra full hollow grinding, it gives a super close and smooth shave. I am very happy with this new straight razor Mastro Livi made for me! Simply awesome!

Great shave tonight. I hadn't used my Darwin Deluxe in a while but it was a timely reminder of how smooth she is.

This afternoon I was going through my shaving drawer to retrieve a receptacle for the puck of Haslinger Schafmilch that should arrive tomorrow.  In the process I found a cork in the drawer that I put there some time ago to try running the razor blade through it to make it smoother.  So, I ran the Gillette 7 O’clock Super Stainless through the cork a few times and put the cork back into the drawer and the razor blade into the razor for this evening.


Later this evening, I whipped up some super rich, creamy lather with a combination of Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street that had been neglected for quite some time and just a bit a Cremo Cooling to add a touch of brisk freshness.  After painting the visage, the razor  did just glide through the three days of growth.  After two passes and a little cleanup I overshot the intended CCS and ended up with a DFS and my face feels great.

After showering …
Pre-shave: Shave Secret
Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89
Blade: Gillette 7 O’clock Super Stainless
Brush: Patriotic, Bi-centennial handle with a 24mm TGN Finest knot

Water: Cold
Alum Block: Yes, with no wincing.
Post Shave: Thayer's Witch Hazel with Aloe & Thayer’s
Aftershave Balm: Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street
