Mastro Livi Carbon Damascus. Again.

Mastro Livi Twisted Carbon Damascus, again. The smoothness of this blade is amazing and the feel it gives to the skin is both pleasing and round while delivering a very close shave. As for the shave brush, the Omega Professional 48 is - in my opinion - one of the best bristle brush around with a good compromise between stiffness and softness. The finishing touch was provided by Aqua Velva Ice Blue, a classic and among my favorite ones.

Grifetto Rules!

Mastro Livi Grifetto is an outstanding straight razor. The more I use it, the more I like it. It gives a super smooth and close shave for an outstanding BBS! The more I use Grifetto, the more I am convinced this is a great straight razor both for beginners and experienced shavers alike. Not to mention the fact it the "Grifetto" name is a tribute to Perugia - the city where I live in - and its coat of arms (the mighty Gryphon!) and, of course, it is also the city where Mastro Livi lives in. I also wanted to use the beautiful Mastro Livi Club 2016 Shave Brush to celebrate the new "Mastro Livi Club Straight Razor 2017" initiative. I am sure this year too Mastro Livi will surprise us with another beautiful and magnificent straight razor! What a great shave!
