-- Saturday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankerazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon Bulldog handle
Blade: Perma-Sharp Super (2)
Brush: Semogue Owners' Club 2012 Special Edition (mixed hair)
Soap: Savon du Midi Orient
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant stick and Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Second shave with SOC SE and it is a fantastically powerful brush. It loaded huge amount of product and generated tremendous lather. The scrub from it is excellent. I face lather (scuttle is used as brush warmer) and scrubbing down the growth is part of my prep, so this is very important to me. The feel of this brush is excellent and is already softer than the first time.

Saturday P.M.
PRE: Mystic Waters Tea Tree and Oatmeal soap
SOAP: Haslinger Honey
BRUSH: QED Saville Row 22 mm Silvertip
RAZOR: GEM JR., w GEM PTFE SS (2)
POST: Crystal deo stick as alum block
GFT Eau de Portugal EdT pour
Clinique Skin Supplies for Men Post Shave Healer
This GEM JR is quite a nice little razor. DFS shave in 2 passes with nary a nick and no burn.
The Haslinger soap is slick and rich and protective.
Clive was right... the GFT Portugal's scent is fine, but with the pour bottle it's difficult to
dispense the right amount.
Enjoying wet shaving, again.
