That brush is so unique and attractive.  Goes well with the scales on the straight.

The Italian Shave

Sometimes I like to shave with Italian shaving products only. This Sunday was one of those times and for the occasion I used my homemade shave products, an Omega brush and a Mastro Livi straight razor. The pre-shave oil, shaving cream and aftershave were all made by me at home and I am sure many of you know I like to make my own shaving stuff at home as a hobby. I like experimenting and to test new recipes, something I am doing since more than ten years now. I believe shaving with your homemade products adds extra pleasure to the pleasure of shaving, a rite made of small however big things, something you slowly savor while avoiding the frenzy of our modern times. The shave was absolutely special thanks to the super smoothness of this Mastro Livi Stripes CarboInox straight razor, a superb BBS shave!

I went surfing at dawn, got some clean rides on my 7'11" Andreini Vaquero in 3-5' swell off Del Mar, CA, and then had an awesome hot shower shave using a King Cobra, Kai mild blade, and a mixture of B&M Taiga and Cryogen.  Finished off with Cryogen aftershave.  Woo hoo!!  What a great shave!

A flawless shave. I think my new favorite injector. No need for touch ups with this baby and damn she looks good too.

Beautiful photo, although beach scenes shouldn't be allowed while it's 24 degrees outside here, and everything is covered in ice from frozen rain.  Biggrin

Thanks. The stone brush handle was made for me by a fellow member on SRP, HARRYWALLY. He does beautiful work.

After Shave: Old Spice

Yesterday was my Grandmother's funeral, she was 87 years young. My Mom and Aunt went through her house this week and they found Grandpa's shaving brush (he passed 16 years ago) and gave it to me. I used her glass bowl as a shaving bowl and it worked well (and I will add it to my bowl rotation). I used Williams Mug because I figure that's what he would have used back in the day. I finished it off with Old Spice because "If Grandpa hadn't worn it, then I wouldn't exist" Wink

This is a horrible shave brush. The marble handle has little marble, and the knot is a disaster. I switched to a Ever Ready 100 T I had curing on top of the a cabinet for the final 2 passes.
