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

It is always a pleasure to shave with Mastro Livi Grifetto - a 6/8 stainless steel straight razor - a super performing shaver always giving an incredible super smooth shave. In this period I am also experimenting with Bay Rum aftershaves quite a lot and I am trying to use as much as I can in order to compare them with my newest Bay Rum batch and see how they perform in regard to the one I make. I also used one of the very best Italian shaving soaps - Vitos "Rosso" (Red) - a tallow based shaving soap providing a very good slickness with its creamy, fatty and rich lather. I liked this shave quite a lot and, I must say, Mastro Livi Grifetto rocks!
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil

A great BBS shave with only 2 passes. The homemade MWF shave stick worked just great and I had enough lather for a third pass if I wished. Been awhile since I had a shave this close without really trying.
