Mastro Livi RWL-34, 15/16 Full Hollow, Spanish Point

Happy new year! May this 2015 bring you all a very prosperous and magnificent year! I started the new year in the very best way possible: a Mastro Livi straight razor, Mastro Livi Brush, Martin De Candre Soap and my humble Bay Rum Aftershave. I could not ask for more and I got the best shave ever. Not to mention, how sharp this magnificent RWL34 straight razor is! It is now one year and a half I own it and, so far, it never needed any touch up or honing, just Mastro Livi loom strop and hand palm. It truly is a superior razor, it still shaves like the first day. Happy new year and wishing you all the greatest satisfactions and joys for this 2015, rich in memorable razors and shaves!
  • Pre-Shave: Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Pre-Shave Oil
