Mastro Livi Inox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point

In these days I like shaving with small Mastro Livi blades and I am using all of my 6/8 razors made by the revered and worldwide famous artisan from Perugia. It is the case of today's shave as I chose this stainless steel 6/8 full ground with a round point. Lovely shave, smooth and close as usual, Mastro Livi razors always deliver the excellence of shave. I also like lately using my Mastro Livi brushes as I believe the lofts he puts on these brushes are excellent and a joy to use. This bristle brush is absolutely amazing with a stiff backbone however soft enough to be pleasurable on the skin. Pinaud Clubman Classic did the rest with its round fragrance and good post shave action.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Tea Eucalyptus Chaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Bleached Boar Bristle, Padouk Handle, 26mm Knot
  • Bowl: Bamboo Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Inox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Round Point

Mastro Livi Carbon Damascus Kamisori 5/8, French Point

First shave of 2017 and I thought I should have used my homemade products to start the new year the right way. It was also quite a long time I was not using a kamisori made by Mastro Livi and today I chose the first one he made for me about three years and a half ago. The shave was smooth and comfortable with a very close result, it delivered a super keen shave like the first time. After all, it is a well known fact kamisoris can give a super close shave despite they are harder to use than western style razors, including symmetrical kamisoris. Here in Perugia we have the sun high in the sky but it is however quite cold so I thought the best choice to finish the shave was my Bay Rum aftershave with its warm and spicy notes seemed to be perfect to this great shave. Happy new year to all!

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: RazorGuy Shaving Soap
  • 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 Carbon Damascus Kamisori 5/8, French Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: RazorGuy Bay Rum
