Kent BK4
Tabac soap
Gillette Red Tip
Treet Dura Sharp

Haven't used the Red Tip in a few years (you read that right). Owing to confidence in my improved technique, I took the razor down and loaded it with carbon steel. 2.5 problem-free passes later, I'm impressively smooth. I could have stopped after only one pass but went all the way to BBS.

Finished with Krampert's Finest Bay Rum. Very nice shave.

-- Saturday--

Prep: hot water wash with hand soap
Razor: Frankenrazor made with Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon Bulldog handle
Blade: Dorco ST-300 (3)
Brush: N. S Y. handle restored with TGN two band finest.
Soap: Stirling Lavender Sage
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant stick and Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Great shave, with great Stirling lather. Lavender Sage is a great scent. I think this may be it for the Dorco ST300 (3). But a good shave.

Sunday

Prep: Hot Shower
Soap: Stirling Coniferous
Razor: ’66 Gillette Slim
Blade: Perma-Sharp Super (4)
Brush: Omega 6192 Badger
Aftershave: Krampert’s Bay Rum

WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angle for my beard a bit)


4th shave with the Perma-Sharp and my 2nd shave with the Stirling Coniferous today. They did the job very well again giving a thick cushioned lather and a great shave: close, smooth, nick & burn free. I finished with Krampert’s Bay Rum.

I am ready for some football……..
