-- Friday, February 13--

Prep: Face wash with bath soap and water
Razor: 1922 Gillette Big Fellow with New Improved head
Blade: Lord Platinum Series (6)
Brush: Semogue Il Rasoio LE (#14/100)
Soap: Dapper Dragon Signature Vegan
Scuttle: None
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Great shave. Sixth shave on Lord Platinum Class was respectable, but the blade was retired after today's shave. I could have made it work for shave 7, but I have no need to prove a point. This was my very first shave with the Il Rasoio LE brush. I have a BS LE Mistura and absolutely love it, so I decided to acquire the Il Rasoio and TSN LE. Still looking for the TSN LE (if you have one and want to sell or trade give me a PM), but scored this lovely barely used Il Rasoio. Absolutely fantastic brush. I think it is ever so slightly scritchy, but not more than would bother me and it is still getting broken in. The handle is gorgeous. That green and clear are beautiful and the shape is very interesting and not dysfunctional at all. I love it and am proud to own it. Thanks, Andi!
