Excellent! I used a T3 today as well. How’s the new razor working for you, Ricardo?

The T3 is an excellent value among synthetic brushes.  Simpson quality at a price competitive with the Chinese imports.  The 1941 Ranger Tech is one of my favorite TTO's, and the LPL Oud Santal is one of my favorite scenes.   So, yes, an excellent shave.

Gillette English Tech
Crystal razor blade
A. Simpson T3 brush
DRH Arlington cream
Fine’s Snake Bite splash 
Shannon’s Aussie Ice splash 

Two and a half passes today. I was having fun,and that’s a great commodity so I went for it. Wth, right? I’m digging the two splash combo. The Snake Bite is just crisp and clean, and the Aussie Ice from Shannon is delightfully cold and adds another level of olfactory enjoyment. And did I mention Aussie Ice is cold? Shok 

Today’s Tech was rocking the Crystal blade on day two. Tossed that baby right out during clean up. It served it’s function superbly. I wasn’t about to push my luck next time out. Crystals, for those who have not had the pleasure, are imo a tad sharper than their IP counterparts. They also feel like a thicker gauge of steel. I have no way of quantifying that, but it sure does feel so. But back to the Tech. The basketweave handle is unusual. Definitely not aluminum. Depending upon the lighting, the threads appear to be stainless, or plated brass. The experts at ATG tell me it’s plated brass.

The T3 was a pleasure with the Arlington cream. I’m trying to power through it so I can open something new. With the hot week coming up however I may resort to Snake Bite soap. We shall see.

Sunday morning:

L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Wilkinson Sword/Shark day 5
Proraso White SS
Proraso White Crema Pre/Dopo Barba
Henri et Victoria Bergamot Vetiver AS Splash

The White is definitely my favourite Proraso soap - the scent is so nice, it’s so easy to lather, it’s very slick, there’s a bit of a menthol sensation, and it’s so soothing as well as moisturizing. The matching pre/after cream works so well as a balm, and the Bergamot Vetiver aftershave from Henri et Victoria is very mentholated, and it smells great. Two passes were enough for a lovely BBS shave that was so enjoyable!

Have a good Sunday - be well and safe!

Charlie, you're layering aftershaves!   The Aussie Ice is alcohol free, so I can see using it after the Snake Bite.

You got that right, Ricardo Thumbsup The scent fades after 20 minutes, and another excellent thing is the cold lasts longer!

Sunday evening shave, May 29, 2022 -- MWF May

Razor: Henson Medium DE / Israeli Personna Super Platinum (2)
Brush: JR #267 burled maple with Omega Pro 49 boar knot
Soap: MWF
Post: alum, cold water rinse, Portland General Store Black Willow Bark Toner

The IP blade works very well in the Henson Medium DE. On its second outing, it mowed down three or so days of stubble with two passes. Near BBS. The alum stung a bit in a couple places, but no nicks, blood or visible razor burn. Overall a DFS.
