Béla, another classic shave to start our week. I especially like the scales on that razor.

My friend Luke sent me this sample of the MdC soap and does it ever lather like a maniac and smell nice, however it also irritated my skin quite a bit - in fact I started to feel an uncomfortable tingle as soon as I was ready to begin the first pass, and I was debating washing it off right away, but I decided to go through with the shave anyway. The results were awesome - I'm as smooth as a baby's tukhis, and the Hega aftershave got rid of the irritation in no time, but that soap is not for me. It's a good thing I found out now instead of buying a whole container of it.

Soap- RR Zi Peppino
Brush- 23mm FS Portland Butterscotch handle
Blade- Polsilver SI (1)

This was my first time using a razor that I know nothing about. It is OC, the underside of the base plate is stamped "James Davis Chicago" and "Germany". The handle is plated brass and in an unusual shape, kinda tapered towards the head.

More aggro than the 11c but not ripping skin off.

Post- Cold splash, Alum, Cold splash, AS
ASB- RR Zi Peppino
