Mastro Livi Hand Forged "Rasoio Italiano"

Luxurious shave! This morning I used this breathtaking Mastro Livi straight razor of which I have a very fond memory. It is in fact the straight razor Mastro Livi made for me and which is part of my "Italian Shave Set". I remember when Mastro Livi and I discussed about this set and how I wanted it to be, not to mention the excitement of seeing those ideas turning into reality thanks to the superlative Mastro Livi's craftsmanship and skill. I made a video that day - the link is below - and it was a wonderful day because for the first time shave brush, loom strop and straight razor were finally together and united. As for the shave, this extra full hollow blade gives an incredibly smooth shave and sings like an Italian tenore! To me it is absolutely incredible how Mastro Livi can ground a blade by hand and with his wheel grinders only while obtaining such a super thin grinding like onion skin with a very consistent precision and thickness all over the blade. Marvelous straight razor!


  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: RazorGuy Almond Oil Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Badger, Olive Wood, 22mm Knot
  • Bowl: Old Barber Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi Hand Forged Rasoio Italiano, 15/16 Extra Full Hollow, French Point, Olive Wood
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Oil
  • After Shave: RazorGuy Thyrrenus

Mastro Livi RWL34, 15/16 Full Hollow, Spanish Point, Olive Wood

There is something magic in this Mastro Livi RWL34 razor. This RWL34 stainless steel is simply amazing and gives both a very close shave and an irritation free smooth skin. I admit I am very fond about this straight razor - yes, I am very fond of all of Mastro Livi razors I have in my collection - also for the fact I personally watched its making and I also made a video of it. The edge is still very sharp and super performing - it still has the original Mastro Livi honing - and after four years it shaves like the first day. Just Mastro Livi loom strop and hand palm stropping and I was ready to experience the best shave. Amazing straight razor!


  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Dr. K Lime Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Super Silvertip Badger, Padouk, 24mm Knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi RWL34, 15/16 Full Hollow, Spanish Point, Olive Wood
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
