Mastro Livi Double Damascus San Mai

A luxury shave. A superior shaving soap, an impeccable brush and a superlative straight razor. And, by the way, my humble Bay Rum aftershave. Mastro Livi Damascus has an absolutely super smooth touch, velvety yet effective, not to mention the superior slickness and performance of the excellent Boellis Panama 1924 shaving soap: the result is memorable. A generous splash of my Bay Rum and, ladies and gentlemen, here it is my very luxurious shave!
  • Pre-Shave: Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Boellis Panama 1924 Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Silvertip Badger, Madagascar Ebony Handle, 26 mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Double Damascus San Mai, 15/16 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: RazorGuy Bay Rum Aftershave

SOTD: 25/xii/2014

Merry Christmas!!!

Mongoose B1 (94)
Dub Legend B1 (37)
Feather Professional (1)
Edwin Jagger XL Synth
Saponificio Varesino - Felce Aromatica (1)
Barrister & Mann Tonique - Fougère Classique
Azzaro Pour Homme EdT


Not the best of shaves but I did a no-no by using a fresh Feather Pro blade while also using a new brush and soap for the first time. I didn't have my usual UltraLather so the cushion and slickness wasn't to my standards; mostly user error IMO at this point. Further use is warranted before I know for sure.

On this special day the Legend handle was a must. The larger brush also seemed appropriate. It may be too large for my tastes but I must admit that it is much better than any other STF brush I have used. Not sure if it is the better V2 fibres or the larger XL knot, 25mm. What I do know though, is that my wife will love it to lather her legs.

One thing is undeniable, I smell fantastic. Thanks to William Carius for recommending the Azzaro Pour Homme as it worked perfectly with the rest of my fougère shave; especially when paired with the Classique aftershave.

Merry Christmas!!!

Shave On & God Bless!!!
