Mastro Livi K720, 7/8 Full Hollow, Square Point

Sunny day here in Umbria, it is cold, of course - it is winter after all - and I wanted to shave with a razor having a pretty "warm" and round touch on the skin. So I opted for a Mastro Livi carbon steel razor and I chose this K720 blade with boxwood scales with chequered inserts. The more I use Mastro Livi synthetic brushes the more I think they are among the very best synthetic ones I have ever used. They have the right smoothness yet having a proper backbone for a beautiful feedback on the skin, mounting lather to perfection. As for the soap, Martin De Candre is always a very good choice, not to mention the Fougère fragrance which smells absolutely great, lovely and balanced. Myrsol F./Extra aftershave provided the finishing touch to this absolutely BBS shave.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Martin De Candre Fougère
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Perugia Eco-Silvertip, Bois De Rose, 26mm knot
  • Bowl: Bamboo Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi K720, 7/8 Full Hollow, Square Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Myrsol F./Extra

Mastro Livi CarboInox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch

CarboInox time! This Sunday I wanted to use my very first Mastro Livi CarboInox razor which made me think about the beauty of this straight razor, both the blade and scales. The blade reminds me of the sea - blue like water, golden like a beach - and the two color cocobolo scales with its light-dark pattern is a perfect match to the blade. I also wanted to use two of the products I recently bought in my last trip in the Netherland: De Vergulde Hand Extra Fris shaving soap and Mennen Blue aftershave. It is now a very long time I use De Vergulde Hand soap and I have always wanted to try the "Extra Fris" version, a soap that seems to be harder to get and less popular than the "classic-yellow" one. It is not so bad, although I expected it to really be "extra fris" like they said. The Mennen Blue aftershave proved to be a good lotion and I like its "classic" fragrance quite a lot.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: De Vergulde Hand Extra Fris
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Best Badger, Black African Ebony Handle, 24mm Knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi CarboInox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Mennen Blue
