Severe IBS cramps this morning, a touch of gout, and, back pain, but, this shave made it all go away.  This was truly enjoyable.  I want to go back to Suave lotion, though.  Also, I may change mugs, again, soon.  I am planning, on it, actually, for today, or, tomorrow.  Happy Sunday, and, Happy Shaving!

Himalaya is dominated by Amber with bright notes. Performance was excellent- slick cushioning lather with great post shave feel. Another winner (are we tired of winning yet?).

Getting Ready to Go Back Home

This month's trip is over and I am getting ready to go back home. Before leaving, as usual, it is good to shave and to do that the best possible way. This Mastro Livi RWL34 certainly is the very best way and this straight razor gave me superb and excellent shaves during this trip. The edge a RWL34 straight razor can take is something incredible in terms of shaving performance and excellence. It is not so hard to put a very good edge on a RWL34 blade and it always delivers a luxurious, super close and smooth shave. Mastro Livi RWL34 razors certainly are among my favorite ones - it is not by chance I have three of them - and they all are amazing shavers. My almond oil shaving cream and the Aqua Velva Ice Blue aftershave have been the perfect companion to this great shave. Now I am ready to pack and heading home.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil

I have not used Arko for a long time so I brought out the stick and rubbed it into my beard and beat up some great lather with the Vulfix 660 Super Badger. The Schick M2 Adjustable made short work of the stubble and I am clean and smooth with zero irritation. The Chick blade still working wonders on its 8th outing. Finished with Nivea, Clubman, and a splash of 4711 and I am ready for the day. Have a blessed day gentlemen. [Image: 621a23d2294f70cc197e0762847107a9.jpg]

Hard to beat pairing, Rockwell-6/Permasharp for the beard, Shake Sharp 1.5/ twin turbocharged Silver Blues for head shave. Rockwell is smoother but efficient as Rocky is the screaming Shake Sharp beats it, no buffing on the back of my head necessary for BBS.[Image: 70e724063c752ae07c3f354788b6d307.jpg]

Shave of the Day:  Sunday Afternoon, 11 June 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Timor 1322 Double Edge Safety Razor
Fresh Tradition Razor Blade
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Proraso Shaving Cream (Hand Lather)
Pitralon Classic Aftershave Tonic
Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave Balm
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream

That was an amazing shave.  I really like the blade.  I will need to test the aftershave tonic, again, though.  I am too hot, and, dehydrated to fully appreciate it.

Took a chance on this razor with lots of surface rust, however some honing on oil and water stones and voila - super sharp for a one pass shave (somewhat surprisingly). Probably old stock poorly stored, or the sharpening process is improving. The DeLuxe brush is massive, and interesting to load as takes large amounts of product to lather (no small containers need apply) and offers a soft experience.

That's a beautiful early Filarmonica. I have an Especial and it's a fantastic shaver. I'm glad that you were able to clean her up and enjoy her lovely shaves.

Nice photo, Phil. And thanks for creating Royal Fougere, a fantastic scent and a top performing soap. It wins my new soap of the year award.
