Weber DLC razor
7 a.m. Hi Platinum blade
Satin Tip Purist brush
CO Bigelow SC
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
M&L Florida Water cologne w/added menthol

1st use of a 7 am blade and it wasn't bad at all. 1st pass was a tiny bit tuggy but after that it smoothed out and a fine shave was had. Love the Florida Water, just wished the scent lasted longer. It only stays about 15 minutes on me.. Oh well. At any rate, I feel dapper and ready to go. It's county fair day! Now go enjoy you day folks.

Mastro Livi Grifetto Mother of Pearl, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point

Today's shave was simply superb. Mastro Livi Grifetto coupled to my Bay Rum aftershave gave me a velvety smooth and irritation free result. Mastro Livi Grifetto proved to be - once again - an incredible straight razor with a super sharp edge providing an incredible super performing shave. I also have to say the super cheap Palmolive stick is an excellent soap giving a very good slickness as well as a comfortable and moisturizing effect. The soothing final touch provided by my Bay Rum aftershave gave me the best shave ever. What a shave!

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Palmolive Stick
  • Brush: Omega Bristle 10275
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Grifetto Mother of Pearl, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: RazorGuy Bay Rum
