Mastro Livi Razor Club 2017, Again

Saturday I am going to return this Club Razor 2017 prototype to Mastro Livi after having had the privilege of testing it for about two weeks. By the way: tomorrow will be the last day for ordering this Mastro Livi Club Razor 2017 and after this date there will be no way to order this razor anymore. I have to say this has been a very luxurious and enjoyable testing, the quality of this razor is stellar having a super smooth and cutting edge delivering a superb close shave. I also like the overall balance of the razor, making it very comfortable to use. The look of this Mastro Livi Club Razor 2017 is terrific: the three semi-precious stone inserts make the blade very elegant and exclusive, very classy adding an artistic pleasure to the joy of shaving. The cocobolo scales perfectly match the shiny blade with its majestically mirror finish. Shaving with this prototype Club Razor was really a joy and I cannot wait to have mine. It simply and certainly is yet another fine masterpiece from Mastro Livi, a real master in craftsmanship.

Mastro Livi RWL34, 9/8 Full Hollow, French Point, Black African Ebony

After having shaved for about two weeks with the prototype of Mastro Livi Club Razor 2017 - and, of course, after having returned to the legitimate owner, that is Mastro Livi - this Sunday I opted for this RWL34 razor. First of all, differences between the two razors: while the Club Razor 2017 gives a very close shave with a velvety touch, the RWL34 blade too provides a very close shave however with a more aggressive feeling. They certainly are two superb shavers, two different ways of experiencing shaving, however both giving impeccable and magnificent results. Today was also the occasion to use one of my favorite aftershave brands - Floïd - in this case the Spanish Mentolado Suave. Although I like the "Vigoroso" better, this one certainly is a very good lotion. Mastro Livi Best Badger shave brush had no problem at all in mounting a super rich and creamy lather from my homemade shaving soap. Not to mention how happy I am for the quality and performance of my "kitchen experiments" in making soaps.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: RazorGuy Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Best Badger, Black African Ebony, 24mm Knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi RWL34, 9/8 Full Hollow, French Point, Black African Ebony
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Floïd Mentolado Suave
