Mastro Livi Double Carbon Damascus San Mai, 15/16 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch

It is always hard for me to tell what of all the Mastro Livi razors I have in my collection is the one I like the most. Each one has its own character and personality, making it unique and special. What I know for sure, is that they all are superb shavers. This one is quite special for the fact it is a double carbon damascus san mai - personally crafted by Mastro Livi, of course - and especially "tailored" for my hand thanks to a special ergonomic grip. Not to mention the fact Mastro Livi wrote my name in the tang, giving this razor an absolutely special, unique and personal touch. I simply love it! I am also trying to compare my shaving soap to others in order to better understand how good is the one I make and what I should change or improve. This was also the occasion to use this lovely 4711 eau de cologne aftershave, a fragrance I really like and this one also proves to be a good aftershave.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
