Mastro Livi Grifetto, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point

Ladies and gentlemen, Mastro Livi Grifetto! The stainless steel used for making this lovely Grifetto is just amazing! Smooth and velvety, with the right amount of aggressiveness, it is a superb shaver. Not to mention the touch of olive wood scales, a typical Italian wood - as well as Umbrian, of course - a magnificent tree not only providing the very best oil, but also a beautiful wood. This shave was also the occasion to test the Denim White Aftershave I bought yesterday, not the very best around, however worth the price I paid for it, and the smell is pleasing and fresh.
  • Pre-Shave: Roberts Distilled Rose Water
  • Soap: Aquagena
  • Brush: Mühle Travel 31 M 530 - 21 mm
  • Bowl: Chinese Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Grifetto, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Denim White

Kent BK4
Dr. Dittmar soap - review here
Z3 Gillette Super Speed
Polsilver blade

Second time for the soap and I'm still impressed. Works well when using sufficient product. First time with this blade. Also impressed. Somewhere between the Yellows (my favorite) and the Silver Blues (too sharp for me).

-- Saturday, April 4--

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 (3)
Brush: Semogue Owners Club 2012 Special Edition (mixed hair)
Soap: Mike's Naturals Rose and Cedarwood
Bowl: Fine blue/white
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Great shave! Mike's Rose and Cedarwood is amazing! More rose than cedarwood, but that's a good thing. Excellent scent and the performance... well, it's Mike's, so the performance is top notch. SOC 2012 SE is an amazing brush.
