    Today's shave:


    - Grooming Dept Voyage
    - Mühle "Gold"tip Badger
    - Mühle Rocca with custom handle and ASP blade
    - Brut Original aftershave


    The Mühle Badger, officially a silvertip, is an older brush with very yellow-ish hair (here is a direct comparison with a newer version: Picture 1, Picture 2). Apparently the colour is natural, probably due to less severe chemical treatment during the production of the brush. Aside from the colour, it behaves just like the more modern Mühle silvertip badger, meaning it's very soft and rather floppy.

    Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
    Razor: Souplex OC travel razor
    Blade: Astra SP (1)
    Brush: Vulfix Grosvenor 404 mixed
    Shave Soap: MWF
    Aftershave Balm: Rock Face Shave Butter
    Aftershave: Old Spice Original

    I didn't get the hydration right and ended up with a "ghost" lather, all foam in the pot, thin and wispy on the face. I loaded the brush again and managed a workable lather to achieve a BBS finish. Rounded off with Old Spice in readiness for meeting friends for lunch.

    Have a good weekend.

    Morning shave.

    Olive Oil Soap
    P&B Pall Mall
    Chubby 2 Best Badger
    Mongoose B3
    Feather Pro Super (1)
    Thayers Witch Hazel (unscented)
    OSP Lemon and Cedarwood Aftershave Tonic
    Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT

    Kevin (@Boru62) kindly sent me a couple of the Pro Super blades several months ago but today was the first time I worked up the courage to use one. Blimey it’ sharp. I was pretty much done after one very careful pass and I was certainly BB smooth after two. Not the smoothest shave but I presume that as with the Pro, the Super will become smoother on subsequent runs. Have a great weekend gents.

    Brush: Shavemac TSR 2015 2B
    Soap: WK Man From Mayfair
    Razor: Igor (on loan)
    Blade: Gem Blue Star
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, WK Man From Mayfair AST

    As it had only been about 15hrs since my last shave with I-gor (I can't stop thinking E-gor), I decided to try it on the lower setting.
    I face lathered with the dynamic duo of Shavemac and Wholly Kaw and set off.
    The mild setting was a good choice until I got to the grey hairs in the Van Dyke area and then it struggled but no more than a Pushbutton struggles in the same area.
    I dont know where others have found their ideal angle on Igor but I've found riding the cap on the front hump (Snoopy's nose, if you like) similar to the curve on the General is perfect for me.
    Have a great weekend.
