Saturday:

Semogue 1250 brush
Vermont Country Store Apothecary soap in a mug w. the stub of an LEA Nueva Formula stick, laced w. KMF fragrance free
Lord Smart Razor
Treet Durasharp carbon blade
Target witch hazel

With the switch from Gillette adjustables to the Lord Merkur knockoff and more practice in technique,
have been able to manage a DFS with these Treet carbon blades, though they have shown spotty quality in the past.

Mastro Livi Grifetto 60, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point

Today's shave has been the good occasion for testing one of the two new Mastro Livi shave brushes I bought yesterday and this time I opted the Wild Silver Badger Double Band and I must say I am very impressed by its performance. It has a lovely backbone and the right compromise between stiffness and softness on the skin. I also used Mastro Livi Grifetto 60, the straight razor Mastro Livi wanted to make in order to celebrate his 60 years of experience and daily commitment on the shaving and straight razor business. Grifetto is a straight razor I truly like, always giving a very pleasing and smooth shave, not to mention, very close.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Cella Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Wild Silver Badger Double Band, Juniper Handle, 24 mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Grifetto 60, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbria Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Pinaud Clubman
