Happy Birthday Mastro Livi!

Happy Birthday Mastro Livi! I want to dedicate today's shave to Mastro Livi who turns 76 today. Seventy-one years dedicated to cutlery and cutting tools, sixty-two years committed with passion to straight razor making and maintenance. I want to send my wishes to a dear friend and a real Master, to the most incredible artisan and straight razor maker I have ever known, the one who has taught me an incredible amount of shaving and straight razor things, the one who has changed my knowledge and approach both about shaving and straight razor maintenance. It has been four incredible years in which everything in my shaving habits have changed and changed forever for the better. Today is Mastro Livi's birthday and I am glad to see he is celebrating his special day with all of his clients by offering a very special discount on the e-shop available at his website. A lovely way to celebrate all together. Happy birthday Mastro Livi! May today be a happy day for you with many more to come. Thank you, Maestro!

Mastro Livi Kamisori Simmetrico, 11/16 Full Hollow, French Point

In this springtime sunny Sunday I wanted to enjoy a shave by using this Mastro Livi Symmetrical Kamisori made of Damasteel Odin's eye pattern. This kamisori delivers an incredibly close shave also thanks to the well known Damasteel's aggressiveness, a very performing steel for razor's blades. The soap I used today is a very special one: Aguzzeria del Cavallo - a well known shop in Bologna, Italy - used to make this great shaving soap for decades and, as far as I know, they discontinued its production. Such a pity. The finishing touch was delivered by Lucky Tiger Bay Rum, an aftershave - in my opinion - having no Bay Rum fragrance at all despite the name.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Aguzzeria del Cavallo
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Badger, Olive Wood Handle, 22mm Knot
  • Bowl: Mastro Livi Olive Wood Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Kamisori Simmetrico, 11/16 Full Hollow, French Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Lucky Tiger Bay Rum
