Maggard London Barbershop today. 20 seconds to load the Honey Farm/TGN Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Vintage Schick Plus Platinum still in the Gillette NEW SC. Excellent smooth, close shave. I finished with Fine American Blend (Original Blend) aftershave.

Prep - Hot towel

Razor – Merkur 34C HD
Blade – Gillette 7 O'clock S/P Black
Brush - ‘Il Cinghiale’ (Zenith EURO/RX)
Soap – Lebelle Soaps: Tobac Vanille 
Post - Cold water rinse / Wholly Kaw: King of Oud Aftershave Toner

At first, I thought The Black Ninja felt a little tuggy with the Merkur 34C HD, but it soon settled down, and with Tobac Vanille laying down the foundation, produced a BBS, irritation free shave... Superb shave.

Thanks to Billy's good work I finally got back to the Rolls. Good shave until I got to my chin where going XTG I couldn't seem to get it right. Takes some practice I guess. For the head shave I used the new Apollo. At about 20g lighter than my version 2 It feels quite different, but with a new Supermax Platinum served up a nice BBS in two passes +.

Sometimes something magical happens when lathering like today - SMN contributed to that and is awesome as is this brush - warm badger lather on a cool autumn day . . . and the weeks badgering disappears

Beautiful, pure lavender scent from the soap and its inspiration (Caldey Island Lavender EdT). Looking forward to the release of the Reserve Lavender splash. Frugal shaves makes the really cool "razor blade" drawer, it has 4 compartments and it's kinda like a filing cabinet.
