wow! That is one beautiful Especial. The second one I've seen now with silver metal Lyre. They are getting harder and harder to come by in this condition. Holy Mole, congratulations!

Thanks. It's a 1st generation Especial, pre 1940's and in outstanding condition. Jamie was kind enough to sell it to me. He's a master at finding NOS razors.

I thought it looked familiar "Kind" for sure. Use it in good health. It's a museum piece, no doubt.

Mastro Livi Damasteel Ladder, 6/8 Full Hollow, French Point

I ordered my Mastro Livi Club Shave Brush 2016 Edition and, while I am waiting for this exclusive and beautiful brush to be made by Mastro Livi - as well as for all the other members of Google+ Mastro Livi Club - for today's shave I used the very first Mastro Livi shave brush I ordered to him. As for the razor, I opted for a beautiful Damasteel Ladder pattern blade which delivered, as usual, a comfortable and close shave, although somewhat aggressive, something common to all Damasteel blades, as far as I can tell. Satisfactory shave for a smooth BBS, while dreaming of using my Mastro Livi Club Shave Brush 2016 Edition. I can't wait and, of course, I am counting each minute to the day Mastro Livi will give me this exclusive and beautiful shave brush.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Weleda Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Silvertip Badger, Makassar Handle, 26mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Damasteel Ladder, 6/8 Full Hollow, French Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Felce Azzurra
