Mastro Livi Inox Extra Full Hollow

I love the smell of juniper wood. Not only it has a lovely Mediterranean scent, it also has a beautiful texture I truly like. That's why today I used this Mastro Livi shave brush, having a handle in juniper wood, because I wanted to smell that fragrance. Not to mention the fact the loft of this brush has a magnificent performance: a two band silver wild badger providing a good backbone while giving a lovely caress on the skin. A perfect combination with the amazing P.160 shaving cream with a luxurious wealth of soft and moisturizing lather. As for the straight razor, I used this Mastro Livi Inox Extra Full Hollow, a straight razor with a stainless steel blade delivering a super smooth and close shave. Floïd Blue provided the finishing touch - in my opinion one of the very best aftershaves around - for a super satisfying and velvety smooth shave.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Nuova Elberel P.160 Professional
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Double Band Silver Wild Badger, Juniper Handle, 24mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Inox, 6/8 Extra Full Hollow, Round Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Floïd Blue

Saturday: 24 Dec 2016 ~* SOTD *~

Brush: ... Proraso Boar
Lather: ... C.O. Bigelow Cream (Proraso Green)
Razor: ... Gillette #58
Blade: ... Personna Super Stainless Steel "For Hospital Use" (2nd shave)
A/S ....... Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba (green)

A bit of a rush shave as I was running late for work, but it still went well. This is a nice blade.

Sunday: 25 Dec 2016 ~* SOTD *~

Brush: ... Kent BK4 :D (1st use)
Lather: ... Geo F. Trumper GFT cream (1st use)
Razor: ... Edwin Jagger DE89 (barley) (1st use)
Blade: ... Personna Super Stainless Steel "For Hospital Use" (3rd shave)
A/S ....... Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba (green)

I put my blade trials using the Proraso set-up on hold. I wanted to use some of my new items for Christmas Day

First, my Kent BK4 (thank you again Dr. Moss). Awesome brush!!

I tried the GFT cream for the first time. It lathered well, and is a more a subtle version of the GFT cologne.

The EJ DE89 seems to me to be somewhere between my Gillette 1958 TV Razor and 1955 Superspeed Red-tip.

Again the Personna "HU" blade performed well.
