Mastro Livi CarboInox Kamisori, 7/8

Traveling with a Mastro Livi razor is always a joy, not to mention with a beautiful and gorgeous kamisori like this one. I absolutely love the idea of CarboInox in this kamisori: compared to a classic kamisori - usually made of carbon steel and having a opaque finish - the look of stainless steel with its shiny mirror finish is absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention the elegant touch of Mastro Livi damascus steel in the edge: a breathtaking masterpiece. I love it! As for the shave, the blade is simply impeccable, giving a deep and close shave and the refreshing and spicy touch of my Bay Rum is simply great.
  • Pre-Shave: Roberts Distilled Rose Water

-- Thursday, April 2--


Prep: Face wash with bath soap and water
Razor: Frankenrazor made with Hallmark top plate, FaTip base plate and Ikon Bulldog handle
Blade: Astra SP (2)
Brush: Semogue Il Rasoio LE (#14/100)
Soap: Mike's Naturals Lemongrass and Eucalyptus
Scuttle: None
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. I am quickly finishing my tin of Mike's Lemongrass & Eucalyptus. I have more on the way, though. The Il Rasoio brush is just amazing and every time I use it I can't help but smile. The Frankenrazor that I've been using in this configuration for over a year now is just about perfect combination of aggressiveness, smoothness and handling.
