August 'Adjustable' week.

After my weekly 'no guard' buzzcut with my wahl hair clippers it was that time again for my monthly head shave.

Maiden face & head shave with the Mers SuperShave X Platinum blade which are manufactured in china made of swedish steel and paired together admirably with the ming shi 2000s making a smooth efficient chinese produced Razor & blade duo.

My monthly head shaves have vastly improved both my shaving confidence and technique multitude.

Another smooth effortless performance from the Ming Shi 2000s resulting in a wonderful BBS face & head shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Boots ~ Moisturising Lotion.

My face & precious swede are feeling super smooth and smelling divine.😉

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.😎

Preshave - Proraso Green
Soap - P&B Star Noir
Razor - Karve Stainless D plate
Blade - Bolzano (3)
Brush - Zenith Boar&Badger Mix
AS - Good old Floïd

I am happy I didn’t give up and sold the Karve after my first weeks with it.
After many months of waiting plus customs charges I decided to stick with it and learn its tricks.
Now I am satisfied with the shaves and with a so called modern razor in my den.
