Gem Clog Pruf w/Gem Blue Star blade
Simpson Special
TOBS Coconut cream
Osage Rub

Of the three non injector SE's I have, the Clog Pruf seems to be the most aggressive, with the 1912 Star second, and the Damaskeen last.
They are all good shavers, though, and cause me to wonder how they as a class were successfully displaced by the DE's.

-- Friday--

Prep: hot water wash with hand soap
Razor: RazoRock OC head on Ikon Bulldog
Blade: Derby (3)
Brush: Semogue 1800 boar
Soap: PannaCrema Namaste
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant stick and Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. I am loving the RR OC, AGAIN! Every time I come back to it I just can't be happier. I am now pairing it up with mild blades. Merkur, Derby, Dorco-ST300 (up comeing). Works great! PannaCrema is one of the very best shaving soaps I have used.

SOTN:

Pre-shave wash with Noxzema
Muhle R41 2013 thanks Germany, confirmed larger head
Feather Blade thanks Japan
Cella, Crema Sapone Extra Extra Purissima thanks Italy
Anthony Pre-Shave Oil
Omega 49 Boar Brush thanks Italy
Post-Shave Wash with Lubriderm Face Wash
Thayer's Rose Water Witch Hazel
Lubriderm 3 in 1 Aftershave
Bloc Osma Alum Block thanks France


I know Feather's and the R41 seem very aggressive. Well they are, in terms of being efficient. Even though I did have to use some Corn Huskers the first time I used this combo. I had 2 days growth but it was all gone in 1 pass. I did 3 passes only because Cella lathers so well with the Omega boar brush. I had a ton of product to spare. I honestly can't tell if the Thayer's is ever really doing anything, but I like it anyway.


I usually don't use Lubriderm. I will sometimes put it on after Nivea Shave Balm. But it was nice to use it solo, not bad stuff. It seems to leave my face feeling better longer than the Nivea, especially after the R41/Feather combo.

DFS after 2 passes.
BBS in 3 passes and a touch up.

Another EARLY morning shave
Saturday
Pre: QED French Red Clay soap
Shave Soap: MWF
Brush: Saville Row 22mm Silvertip
Razor: Gem Clog Pruf with Gem SS, PTFE (3)
Post: Thai Crystal deo
Clubman A/S
Clinique Post Shave Healer
Continuing with my current preoccupation with SE"s, I returned to the Clog Pruf and was reminded that this is a VERY efficient, and noisy, razor
Even with the great lather from the MWF, managed to inflict a few tiny weepers, easily managed with the Thai Crystal deo. 2 1/2 passes netted
me one DFS. The Saville Row is a fine brush to use with a soap like MWF, though I used a bit too much water to start and needed a bit more product
and plenty of face lathering to obtain optimal lather.

Enjoying wet shaving, again.
