Getting Ready to Go Back Home

I am about to get ready to go back home and before leaving it is always good to shave. I have been very happy about this shave, not only because of the stellar Mastro Livi razor I brought with me, but also for the awesome aftershave I used today, one of my favorite ones. Floïd Blue is certainly an excellent aftershave and it is so bad they quit production. Nevertheless I see so many wet shave lovers complaining about Floïd Blue not being in production anymore and I wonder whether Colomer - the producer of Floïd range - will ever read this and change their mind. This would certainly make a lot of people very happy.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: De Vergulde Hand
  • Brush: Omega Bristle 83
  • Bowl: Chinese Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Travel Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Stripes CarboInox Italy, 7/8 Full Hollow, Spanish Point

Mastro Livi RWL34, 8/8 Full Hollow, Snake Point

Whenever I shave with a RWL34 stainless steel straight razor made by Mastro Livi, I have always the same impression: I like this steel and I absolutely like the way Mastro Livi works this steel and turn it into the shaving paradise. This razor has everything I look for in a blade: superb shaving performance with a super smooth and close shave as well as the right balance between aggressiveness and smoothness. I also love the Mastro Livi eco-silvertip shave brush I used today, in my opinion one of the very best synthetic lofts around, a great performer in lathering and caressing the skin. Today I was in the mood for a special fragrance so I used the 4711 Original Eau de Cologne Aftershave - I love the 4711 fragrance - and, besides the lovely scent, it is also a good aftershave.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Mystic Water Marrakesh
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Perugia Eco-Silvertip, Stabilized Popal, 24mm Knot
  • Bowl: Old Barber Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi RWL34, 8/8 Full Hollow, Snake Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: 4711 Original Eau de Cologne Aftershave
