First Head and dome shave with my new Colonial Silversmith razor. In words of one syllable, WOW!! I had the opportunity to shave with this razor back in early September as part of a loan swap with a friend on another board (Karve for Silversmith). We each shaved with the others razor for two weeks and then returned them. I’d forgotten how smooth and efficient the razor is! It looks like it may become my favorite DE. Effortless BBS!

SOTD 11/05/19

RAZOR: Colonial Silversmith
BLADE: Voskhod
PRESHAVE: Cold water rinse followed by PAA’s Charcoal-Menthol Cube preshave soap
BRUSH: Omega Pro 48 Boar
SOAP: Alpinemade Unscented Goat Milk
POSTSHAVE: Wash with Goat Milk soap followed by Thayers Lavender Witch Hazel then Aqua Velva and finished with Lisa’s Post Shave Elixir

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Beehive Ivory Finest (24/50)
Hemingway Accoutrements shaving cream
Wolfman WR2-SB Mirror-Polished/Bob's Razor Works Bull Mastiff
Gillette Platinum 'Swede' (1)
Hemingway Accoutrements aftershave

I am disappointed in how short a time the cream is lasting. It is going much faster than any of my other creams or soaps, while the matching aftershave is lasting much longer. The WR2 0.95 seems to be as smooth as and significantly less aggressive than the WR1 0.61, even with a first-use blade, while still giving a BBS shave.

Broke out my Gem Micromatic Clogpruf this morning. It delivered a decent face shave. Did not use it for my daily dome shave. Rake style razors and the back of my head don’t tend to do so well. My Vector delivered its usual effortless, BBS noggin scrape.

BLADE: Pella SS PTFE Gem
PRESHAVE: Cold water rinse followed by PAA’s Charcoal-Menthol preshave soap

Saturday AM 2019-11-09

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 1/2 Ivory Finest (24/53)
Crabtree & Evelyn For Men shaving soap (vintage)
Wolfman WR2-SB 1.15/WRH2
Gillette Platinum 'Swede' (5)
Armani Acqua di Giò Profumo aftershave

Another excellent shave. The soap is gradually losing its love-it-or-leave-it scent but still makes great lather. The WR2 is just as efficient and perhaps a bit smoother than my WR1 razors. And the aftershave is quite good, although it seems not much different than the original AdG.
