    Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap
    Brush:- Maseto 2 Band Finest Badger Horn 30/54mm knot
    Soap/Cream:- Wickham 1912 ~ Shamrock Tweed (sample)
    Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
    Razor:- Muhle Rocca R96
    Blade:- Gillette Nacet #1
    Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel / Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic
    Fragrance:- YSL L’Homme

    Holy Rocca. This beast is right in between the Muhle R89 (EJ DE89) and the R41, just above or more on the Merkur 34C aggressive rate and is much safer to shave the Rocca by riding the cap with some blade feel. The Rocca is very smooth IMHO using a smooth blade as possible and I've chosen the Gillette Nacet blade, I'm overwhelmed the Rocca has some extra weight because the whole head and the handle is fully stainless steel with some kind of black rubber grippy feel attached to the handle. Beside is way too early for me to give you my full judgement on the Rocca, all I can say at the moment the Rocca is very smooth IMHO as YMMV depending on your shaving techniques and your stubble because you can nick yourself very easy. This razor is a keeper in my den, I'm so glad I got myself a Muhle Rocca.

    Today's shave:


    - Barrister & Mann Sinfonia
    - Zenith Synt Dark
    - Edwin Jagger DE81 with ASP blade
    - Isana Free Space aftershave


    The soap has a very flowery scent which reminds me of the Rhapsody, only more focused on the single Jasmin blossom note. There's a slight bitterness or tartness creeping in as well, but it's not bothersome as I feel it enhances the otherwise
    sweet flowery impression. Maybe that's the Apricot part, as I haven't noticed anything else I'd attribute to the fruit.

    Cyril R. Salter (tallow)
    RR 400 Aluminium Polished - MS ED Finest Reknot
    Wolfman WR1 (Loan) - Pol Silver SI
    First lather for my reknotted RR Aluminium 400. Following a long soak the MS knot performed really well. It'll need time to fully break in but I'm happy.:)

    The Wolfman WR1 ...woof woof! Fabulous fit and finish. No doubt I was holding a quality razor but as much as I enjoyed the shave I was constantly thinking how come these are so expensive? :scratchhead:

    I'm very grateful to Tom @Tomhstorey for the opportunity to try one but I very much doubt I'll be owning one soon. That's unless of course Wolfman cut the price by 50%. Yeah right, dream on. :wink:

    Proraso Sensitive Pre Shave
    P&B Imperial Rum Soap

    Gem Micromatic Clog-Pruf with a Gem SS Blade

    Not a lot of time for shaving related fun this weekend I am afraid. Chrissie (my partner) has her first dressage event of the year tomorrow. The Horse lorry was picked up this morning after an MOT and much of today will be spent refilling it with all her 'essentials'. and preparing the horse for tomorrow.

    3 passes for an uncomplicated super smooth shave:)

    Enjoy your weekend everyone!

    Pre: Warm water face wash
    Brush: Anbbas Boar
    Soap: TOBS Sandalwood
    Razor: Treet SE
    Blade: Gem SS
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, TOBS Sandalwood

    With less than a days growth I opted for the mild but effective Treet.
    I never know what to call this razor, at first glance it looks like a 1912 but on further inspection the safety bar looks more like a Clog Pruf.
    I find it a milder shave than both the 1912 and the Clog Pruf.
    If anyone knows what Treet called this model I'd love to know.
    Have a great weekend everyone.

    Vulfix 404 mixed
    Vitos Super Red
    Schick E2 [ Canada ]
    Schick Proline [ 4 ]
    Pitralon Classic A/S lotion

    I have Two E2 Razors, one from USA and Canadian one, and it is the latter I have chosen to use based
    on previous Shaves.
    Unlike its American cousin, this E2 has lots of blade feel but is not all harsh and the Shave was quite smooth, with the finish on the upper parts of my face being uber shorn. Not so good along lower jawline
    but that is always a difficult area for me. I think I would be quite happy to use this for back to back Shaves,
    which is saying something for an E2.

    Morning shave.

    BBA Face Wash
    SV Manna di Sicilia
    Shavemac 2 Band Silvertip
    Tatara Masamune (pass around)
    Polsilver SI (1)
    Thayers Witch Hazel (unscented)
    RazoRock XXX Aftershave
    ADP Colonia EDC

    The sun is shining and there’s the promise of some warmth in the air so the perfect opportunity to go Mediterranean today. A lovely 3 pass shave for BB smooth. The razor performed admirably but I’ll use it for a week before casting judgement. Have a great weekend chaps.
