Viva l'Italia!

Viva l'Italia! Today is the Italian National Day or, like we properly call it, "Festa della Repubblica", that is our "Republic Day". We are in fact celebrating the 71st anniversary of our Republic. Long live Italy! To celebrate our National Day I shaved with Italian products only, including the ones made by me, certainly and proudly made in Italy. As for the razor, I used this Mastro Livi RWL34, a stainless steel having - and I am sure about this - superior quality and performance in shaving. I must say this is the only Mastro Livi razor I have ever honed (I own 31 of them, none of them ever needed honing) and not because it needed honing, indeed because of a challenge. I have read from time to time many people complained about Mastro Livi RWL34 razors and in their opinion it was a stainless steel impossible to hone and it could not take any edge or however a good edge. I have three RWL34 razors and I decided to accept the risk of honing one of them and I decided to sacrifice this one. Let me say this clear: this razor had a great edge (just like any Mastro Livi razor) but I wanted to try myself to hone it from scratch and see whether those complaining about RWL34 razors were right. I removed the original Mastro Livi edge by severely dulling it on a stone, then I started making a new bevel from scratch. It took about 15 minutes to get a fabulous edge and I can tell (and prove) what people say about Mastro Livi RWL34 is absolutely false. I used a 3K to make a new bevel, a Belgian coticule and then Mastro Livi chromium oxide paste and his loom strop. Since that day, I used this razor to shave dozens of times and it still has a very sharp and super cutting edge. Mastro Livi RWL34 straight razors are magnificently amazing shavers, giving a super close and very effective shave. Viva l'Italia!

Mastro Livi RWL34: a Stellar Fabulous Edge!

The more I use a Mastro Livi RWL34 razor, the more I know how great are the straight razor made with this fabulous stainless steel. They simply take an incredible edge that, coupled with the superior Mastro Livi's craftsmanship in creating extra full hollow blades by hand and by using his wheel grinders only, give a super smooth and close shave. I am so happy I took this Mastro Livi RWL34 with me for this month's trip and it is giving me the very best shaves. As for the rest of the today's shave setup, I used an Omega bristle brush which easily mounted a rich lather from Cella shaving soap, ended with the very cool and refreshing touch of the magnificent Floïd Blue aftershave. A perfect Mastro Livi RWL34 shave!
