MONDAY MORNING
PRE: QED French Red Clay face soap
SHAVE SOAP: AoS Tallow, unscented
BRUSH: Somerset Simpson Duke 2, best
RAZOR/BLADE: Gem MM Clog-Pruf with Gem PTFE SS (5)
POST SHAVE: styptic pencil .... Alum deo stick as post shave astringent ... Clubman A/S .... Simpson ASB
With my AoS Lavender tallow reduced to a pitiable tiny shell, I jumped at the chance to snag some unscented
tallow on B/S/T (thanks PhilC) and today it saw its first use. An how nice it was. I don't overweight fragrance
in my soap ratings, so an unscented soap isn't a negative at all and one that provides rich, slick, lather and a
great shave is particularly welcome.
So smooth and a shave with a Gem blade on its 5th outing is most unusual, but I won't push it any further!
Enjoying wet shaving, again.

-- Monday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankenrazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon bulldog handle
Blade: Perma-Sharp Super (2)
Brush: Semogue Owners Club 2012 SE mixed hair
Soap: GFT Rose
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze (used as brush scuttle)
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Simpson Aftershave Balm

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Good shave, but got a little razor burn not sure why. Nothing bad, but some redness on the nech, which I have not experienced in a long time. The amount of lather I got from GFT puck was a little scary using the SOC SE. I've been using Mike's lately and load that for about a minute to get lots of good Mike's lather. With GFT I got twice as much lather with a minute load. this brush is amazing.

C&E BBB
Cella
40s SuperSpeed
Gillette Yellow (3)

Cella never disappoints. The C&E brush takes it up and face lathers in no time. Blade and razor are among my best combinations. Perfect ten-minute shave with no dryness.

Vferdman,
As I am just now beginning a month-long(?) "test" of the Simpson ASB, please share how the Simpson
handled the mild irritation from today's shave1
Thanks,
Enjoying wet shaving, again.

Merkur 39C slant
Astra SP
Harris Lavender soap
Omega Bambino brush

Nice change of pace from a straight.
I think I will stick with the above for
a week. I will switch around on AS.

A gem of a razor. The Plisson lathers like crazy and is very BK4-ish.
