Proraso Green in tub loaded on to:
Razorock Plissoft 24mm brush
Schick Krona razor
Lord Super Chrome blade
Target witch hazel

Don't post to SOTD unless it's something new (to me) & different. The Lord Super Chrome is a marginal blade,
but for me the Krona razor can make such blades usable. The Proraso Green is quick, easy, and will be
my soap for the summer. It also helps with a marginal blade like the Super Chrome.

Shaving with a Snake

Yet another snake shave, yet another superbly smooth shave. I am so glad I took with me this Mastro Livi Snake Razor in my monthly business trip. I like everything about this straight razor, and I must admit the "snake point" - or "Mastro Livi Point", as it was conceived by him - is incredibly efficient and precise in shaving the hardest spots of my face. A very special mention to the Palmolive Shave Cream: a super cheap soap however delivering an excellent shave and performance. At least here in Italy it is very easy to get a tube for less than one euro and - at a such competitive price - it is one of the very best soap around, one you can trust for its reliability and smooth result.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Palmolive Shave Cream
  • Brush: Omega Professional Brush #48
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Travel Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi CarboInox Snake Razor, 8/8 Full Hollow, Snake Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla
