Traveling with a Mastro Livi Grifetto Mother of Pearl

Every time I travel and I take with me one of my three Mastro Livi Grifetto razors, I always end up thinking Grifetto is a great solution for traveling. Not to mention Mastro Livi loom strop which perfectly fits to my luggage. Grifetto has a super sharp and long lasting edge, you simply need to strop it with your hand palm and the razor is ready to give you a luxurious shave. I am very happy to own three of them and this time I took with me the one with mother of pearl scales, so beautiful to look at. Another good performing shave tool is Omega Professional 48 shave brush, in my opinion one of the very best bristle shave brush around. As for the soap, the super classic Tcheon Fung Sing "Barbe Rosse" proves to be a very good, yet very cheap, shaving soap providing a super luxurious lather and excellent glide to the razor. The finishing touch has been given by Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla aftershave, although I do not like its fragrance that much, it however is a very good aftershave and you can tell it has more alcohol than most of the other aftershave lotions.
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Tcheon Fung Sing Barbe Rosse
  • Brush: Omega Professional 48
  • Bowl: Chinese Stainless Steel Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Travel Loom Strop 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: Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla
