Yet Another RazorGuy Shave!

I am continuing testing my shaving soap which I like more and more at each single shave. I am still thinking I should change something in this recipe, but I am however very happy with the amazing and incredible performance of this soap. Also the pre-shave and after shave are part of my homemade production and this time I wanted to use my Bay Rum, as it was quite a long time I did not use it in favor of the fresher Thyrrenus. This time I used a vintage straight razor: a gorgeous Wostenholm "pipe razor", one of my favorite vintage razors, smooth and velvety, I could not be wrong. For this shave I also wanted an icing on the cake and used my father's very old Omega bristle brush 47: although it is about 40 years old, it is one of the finest, softest, super performing and very best shave brushes I have in my shave den.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: RazorGuy Shaving Soap
  • Brush: My Father's Omega 47
  • Bowl: Chinese Cheap Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: George Wostenholm & Sons Pipe Razor, 11/16 Half Hollow, Square Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: RazorGuy Bay Rum
