Monday, June 27, 2011

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Rapira Swedish SuperSteel
Brush: Vulfix 2006 Pure Badger
Cream: Cyril Salter Sublime Citrus
A/S: Thayer's Lemon Witch Hazel, TOBS No. 74 Victorian Lime Splash

Another fine shave with the Rapira blade. Further experience with it will determine its longevity. If I can consistently get 4 or 5 good shaves from the blade, I will induct it into my Hall of Favorites. :D The citrus combination of cream, WH, and splash provided a very refreshing shaving experience this cloudy morning.
