    Today's shave:


    - Mondial Mandarino e Spezie
    - YaQi Bristle
    - Tech with Tibam handle and Feather blade
    - Pitralon Pure aftershave


    (The YaQi Bristle is a bit of a bother, because it sheds a lot. I've done a test lather and used it for proper shaving five times now, and each time it has shed between five and fifteen bristles to a total number of about 70 by now. Besides that, it's basically fine, but European manufacturers of boar brushes really don't have to lose any sleep over this particular competitor.)

    Mandarin oranges were something of a Christmas time specialty in my youth, ubiquitous in December and hardly seen the rest of the year. No idea why. And speaking of my youth, another fond reminder of yonder days is 8-bit-music, as my first computer was a Commodore 64 (a hand-me-down my parents bought from a neighbour's kid older than me) and I got it for Christmas. :D

    Birch Tar Soap
    RSC Facial Scrub
    Vitos Preshave Cream
    De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap
    Omega 10065 Boar Brush
    Merkur Futur with a Treet Durasharp
    Alum Block and Rinse
    BBA PS Balm
    Benjamins Bay Rum with Pimento

    The Vergulde Hand is a cheap 'man on the street' shaving soap. It used to be seen being used in the shaving community years ago but seems to have been forgotten. I can't understand why. It works rather well and has a pleasant cologne scent.
    The Futur was my first 'proper ' razor and for me produces even better results now than it did all those years ago!

    Three passes for a wonderful BBS shave:)
