Oh, my.  What can I say?  This was an incredible shave.  An absolutely fantastic shave.  It has been ages since shaving felt this good.  I was trepidatious, at first, about the Proraso.  I thought the parfum might cause me an allergic reaction.  I also thought the menthol would be too strong, as most mentholated products tend to be quite strong.  However, the fragrance works well with my skin.  And, I am pleased to report/confirm/acknowledge, the menthol is quite light.  Just the right amount to ease the burn of shaving, but, not enough to cause a cold burn of its own.  

So, this might be my one, and, only set-up, from now on.  

I would be fine with this, really.  

Happy Sunday, &, Happy Shaving!!

Mastro Livi Kamisori Simmetrico, 11/16 Full Hollow, French Point

In this springtime sunny Sunday I wanted to enjoy a shave by using this Mastro Livi Symmetrical Kamisori made of Damasteel Odin's eye pattern. This kamisori delivers an incredibly close shave also thanks to the well known Damasteel's aggressiveness, a very performing steel for razor's blades. The soap I used today is a very special one: Aguzzeria del Cavallo - a well known shop in Bologna, Italy - used to make this great shaving soap for decades and, as far as I know, they discontinued its production. Such a pity. The finishing touch was delivered by Lucky Tiger Bay Rum, an aftershave - in my opinion - having no Bay Rum fragrance at all despite the name.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Aguzzeria del Cavallo
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Badger, Olive Wood Handle, 22mm Knot
  • Bowl: Mastro Livi Olive Wood Bowl

  • Razor: Mastro Livi Kamisori Simmetrico, 11/16 Full Hollow, French Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Lucky Tiger Bay Rum
