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

A fabulous shave, super smooth and velvety, this Mastro Livi Grifone proves to be an incredible shaver as well as proving the superior craftsmanship and talent of Mastro Livi in forging steel and making straight razors. Not to mention his sixty-years expertise in honing to perfection any blade, something you can tell thanks to the velvety, close and irritation free shave you get. I am also proud of this razor because it was named after the coat of arms of Perugia - the city where I was born and live, the same where Mastro Livi works and makes his masterpieces - having an extra full hollow grinding and making the blade singing while shaving. Absolutely beautiful and awesome. I also used my beloved Mastro Livi "Pennello Italiano" (Italian brush) a super silvertip badger shave brush having the Italian flag insert in the handle. A special mention for both the Vitos verde shaving soap - very popular among professional barbers - as well as the after shave Edelstein Evolution Ice Line, a lotion destined to professional barbers and very effective, doing a very good job with a pleasing "barbershop" fragrance. Great shave!
