Parker Variant razor
Gillette Silver Blue blade
VDH/TGN Silver Tip franken brush
Taconic Mint&Eucalyptus SC
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
Skin Bracer A/S w/added menthol

Set the Parker at 2.75 for the Gillette blade and it worked very well. However, I think it would be better at 3. Regardless, it was a smooth, easy, comfortable shave with great results. The Taconic SC is very nice, lathered easily with a nice cooling sensation and good cushion and glide. I like it. And this week I will be using my badger/boars brushes as they have been looking forlorn on the shelf cuz I like synthetic's better and use them a lot more. Gonna be a rainy day here but I don't care cuz I look/smell/feel great. Now go enjoy your day folks.

Snake Shave

I am absolutely crazy for this masterpiece. This Mastro Livi CarboInox Snake razor is not only a super shaver, but it is also an incredible work of art. The Snake Razor was conceived by Mastro Livi and his son in 2007 and this one is very special. The blade is made from Mastro Livi CarboInox with carbon damascus steel dots inserts, shaded buckeye scales with onyx and white turquoise inserts, a stunning beauty to look at, an incredible smooth shaver giving the very best BBS shave ever! Today I wanted to use Antica Barbieria Colla Almond Oil Shaving Cream, a superlative shaving cream certainly one of the very best shaving soaps around giving a super slick and effective lather with an incredible post shave sensation. A special mention to Mastro Livi Super Silvertip Badger Shave Brush, a great caressing massage on the skin which easily mounted Colla shaving cream into a luxurious lather. The final touch was delivered by Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum aftershave with its "bay rum like" fragrance and I admit I don't like it very much, although good, I like a more genuine and authentic "Bay Rum" fragrance.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Antica Barbieria Colla Almond Oil Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Super Silvertip Badger, Padouk Handle, 24mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi CarboInox Snake, 8/8 Full Hollow, Snake Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum

Brush: Kent Silvertex
Cream: JM Fraser's Original
Razor: Razorock Chrome Hawk
Blade: Feather ProGuard (5)

I got a wonderful shave both Saturday and Sunday with the Chrome Hawk. It is relatively mild with the ProGuard Blades. I will try Kai Milds next which shipped to me from Japan after purchasing them on Amazon. I think the Feather Pro Blade would be too aggressive, and I am unwilling to try it in this razor. It works fine in the Colonial General.
