C&E BBB
Dr. Dittmar soap
Late 40s Gillette Super Speed
The last Dorco 301 blade I'm going to use for a long time, maybe ever

Sometimes despite your best efforts you end up with a crappy shave. i need to remind myself to Really Load Up on this product. The lather was thin and simply wasn't providing the slickness necessary to make the Dorco usable. Not sure if anything could make that blade usable though. It felt more like the whiskers were being broken off rather than being sliced. Even 2.5 passes didn't eliminate all the stubble and I quit while I was ahead. Or at least while I had some face left. A painless application of Aqua Velva told me I had stopped in time.

I am Still Testing my Shaving Soap and Liking It Very Much!

On this sunny Sunday I am still using my shaving soap and I am liking it very much. The more I use it the more it seems to turn out as a super performing shaving soap. I am very happy with my new formula and I will certainly continue testing it for a while. I am also very impressed by this Mastro Livi RWL34 straight razor. It is now three years I bought it and still having the original Mastro Livi honing: it still has a very super cutting and super sharp edge. Absolutely amazing, just another good proof of how this RWL34 stainless steel is incredibly excellent in straight razor making. And it is also the proof of how excellently good is Mastro Livi at making straight razors from this steel. By the way: the day Mastro Livi made this straight razor, I wanted to film the whole process in one of my videos and - by watching it again - I can still remember the very good memories of that incredible day: it was the very first time for me to watch Mastro Livi making a straight razor from a raw steel bar to shave test. Memorable day, unforgettable experience!
