Prep:Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion Brush:Tony Forsyth P&C LE 2017 Platypus High Mountain White Badger Soap:A&E Grecian Horse Razor:Wolfman WR1 Blade:Vintage NOS Gillette French Brown (3) Post:Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Pitralon Classic Aftershave Splash Scent:Penhaligon's Endymion EdT
A wonderfully comforting BBS shave on a cold night (well, by Perth standards).
The Grecian Horse soap scent is rich and intoxicating, and the spicy woods of the Pitralon Classic and Pen's Endymion compliments both the soap and each other nicely.
Pre-shave: Hot shower Brush: WCS faux tortoise shell synthetic Soap/Cream: Razorock Sana Maria Del Fiore Firenze Razor: Razorock Hawk V3 OC' Blade: Feather Artist Club Professional (1) Post-shave: Fine Fresh Vetivar/ Geo F Trumper Sandlewood Skin Food
This was a lovely shave. Two pass and touchups BBS. The first pass was a DFS. I could easily stopped and be done, then what a waste of lather that would have been.
I much prefer these blades than the Super Professional blades. Straight out the dispenser they work very efficiently and are much sharper than any DE blade. The pro is also smoother thsn the super pro's which have a tendency to bite if your not using an extra soft touch using the razor. I think the super pro's are better suited to the Artist Club straight razors.
This particular soft soap is exceptional. This is by far the best soap Razorock produce that I have used. The scent is slightly smokey tobacco with vanilla, Eucalyptus, with a bit of menthol that activates post shave. Standout for the product is the residual slickness. No need to lather for the touchups pass.
