Mastro Livi RWL34, 9/8 Full Hollow, French Point

I always try to keep in rotation all the straight razors in my collection and it is not an easy task. I admit I use Mastro Livi straight razors the most and the reason it is obvious to me: they simply are the very best shavers I own and nothing compares to each of them. I usually shave three or four times a week and in just one of them I use one of the many vintage razors of my collection, whereas the other times it is always a Mastro Livi straight razor. Including Sunday shave in which I always use a Mastro Livi. Today I opted for this stellar Mastro Livi RWL34, simply superb, reliable and always giving a super smooth shave. I coupled this RWL34 razor to my latest Mastro Livi "Pennello Italiano" brush which confirmed to be a great brush: it easily mounted the XPEC shaving cream while giving a smooth and delicate massage to my face.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: XPEC Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Silvertip Badger "Pennello Italiano", 24mm Knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi RWL34, 9/8 Full Hollow, French Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Geo F. Trumper Sandalwood Cologne

For my Sunday morning shivering session:

Neutrogena Men Facial Wash
Large Horsehair Barbershop
Super Speed/Derby day 7
Stirling Glacial Spearmint SS
Stirling Glacial Wintergreen AS Balm
Stirling Glacial Wintergreen WH
Old Spice Cologne

Damn, just before I showered with the Glacial Spearmint bath soap and let me say this - it can FREEZE you to Kingdom Come and then some. The shaving soap version is BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-Cold and beautiful with such awesome lather and that delicious, bathroom-filling scent. The Stirling products I've tried are all so skin-friendly. I wish that I wouldn't have waited so long to get the Glacial Spearmint balm and witch hazel because they're both sold out, but the Glacial Wintergreen versions are also magnificent. A super-nice BBS and frigid shave awaits me!
