Weber DLC razor
Gillette 365 blade
Shave Revolution Evo brush
TSD Lemongrass SS w/2x menthol
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
TSD Lemongrass A/S w/2x menthol

A face freezer shave to start the day and I liked it. Surprised by the 365 blade in a good way. Smooth, sharp and comfortable giving me a fantastic shave. I have 2 of these blades and will use them in different razors to see how much I like them and how long they last. Now go enjoy your day folks

Tuesday night:

Razor: Razorock Quick-Change TTO
Blade: Tíz (from Iran)

Brush: Semogue 1305
Soap: Tim's Soap

Lather made on top of the soap
Two-and-a-half passes

Aftershave: Cold water rinse and Thayer's Peach Witch Hazel


Very mild razor, though it gets "under" the whiskers to cut them down better than a Tech. Since everything irritates my skin, this is probably about as good as I'm going to find for me. Its construction is just different enough from that of a Super Speed to make it quite a bit easier to clean than most TTOs. The mechanism isn't as smooth as that of a Super Speed, but the chrome finish is very good. This is a very good razor for $9.95.

Parker 94r razor
Gillette 365 blade
Maggard Synthetic brush
Dr. Selby 3x SC w/added menthol
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
Skin Bracer A/S w/added menthol

Another nice shave from the 365 blade but I think it's done. This is shave #3 with it and I usually only use a blade for 3 shaves so it's OK. Going to use my second one tomorrow, not sure with which razor tho. When you have 33 DE's it can get hard to choose. Now go enjoy your day folks.

Mastro Livi Inox "Grifone", 9/8 Full Hollow, Livi Snake Point

What a razor! Although the blade is quite big - this is a 9/8 straight razor - you have the total control of the shaving also thanks to Mastro Livi's snake point. This straight razor is made of forged stainless steel and it proves - once again - Mastro Livi's impeccable craftsmanship in making stainless steel straight razors. I bought this razor two years ago and it still shaves like the first day, it never needed any touch up, not even in chromium oxide paste. I just used, as usual, Mastro Livi loom strop and hand palm in order to achieve a perfect ordinary maintenance of the edge. This morning I used Mitchell's Wool Fat soap again and I like it, easy to lather while ensuring a good moisturizing effect. As for the aftershave, my beloved Floïd Blue did an impeccable job. And I am ready to face the day with an extraordinarily super BBS shave!

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
  • Brush: Vie-Long Horse 13061, 24mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Inox "Grifone", 9/8 Full Hollow, Livi Snake Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Floïd Blue
