Tikified!

• Pre: Tiki Bar Soap -- Dead Sea Facial
• Razor: EverReady 1924
• Blade: GEM PTFE (2)
• Brush: RV Arabian Knight Black Fibre
• Soap: Tiki Bar Vegan "Woodsy"
• AS: Krampert's Finest Bay Rum

Image

This 1924 razor is an odd bird for me. The shave results are great but it does have that hint of harshness. Now that I've found the ER'14 Little Lather Catcher I don't see myself reaching for the '24 often. The '14 is just as efficient without any harshness. I don't quite see how the '24 is supposed to be an improvement over the '14.

The Tiki soap performs amazingly well even though I haven't fully dialed in the best ratio for me. The bay has toned down & I'm really enjoying the ozone coming through now. This soap is super slick and has helped to deliver 2 great shaves even with one of the more aggressive & harsh SEs I've used.

-- Monday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankerazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon Bulldog handle
Blade: Personna Super (lab prep) (2)
Brush: Barbear Classico 2013 LE Mistura (mixed hair) No. 18
Soap: GFT Rose
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant stick and Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Second shave with #18/100 Semogue Barbear Classico Mistura. What a great brush! I dusted off my GFT Rose after not using it for over a year just to see how the Mistura will deal with it. Predictably, it ate it up and created a superb lather. I actually like GFT Rose, just needed to take a break from too much rose scent, but now I welcome it again.
