The soap and splash arrived from Kearney, Nebraska. The home of the magnificent summer-jump-in-a-pool and cooling Cannonball! Fantastic shave today and a long cool finish.

(Face & head Shave.)

(Chinese Razor & Blade Week.)

A new shave set up to start the weekend...It's been a long time since i used my Ming Shi 2000s. Maiden shave with the Ming Shi MP-063 blade, which came free with the razor....The verdict?....I will be honest and say when ever i get free blades with a razor i normally avoid them like the plague but i was curious to try them out however i did have another tried & tested Chinese made blade on standby just in case the Ming Shi MP-063 felt below the grade and not up to the standard that i require .. After i had done my usual hand-stropping to remove any burrs or imaginary ones from the blade edges, as i do with any new blade before i pair it together with the razor the Ming Shi 2000s razor & blade duo paired together really well they are not the sharpest of blades, but felt smooth and efficient, and most importantly caused no 'blood sport' to the shave performance.

The Ming Shi 2000s razor alone, like most of my more assertive razor's has improved my shaving confidence and technique multitude.

I never thought in a million years I would use such an efficient razor especially for a head shave...practicing my technique has gave me the shaving confidence to do so.

An enjoyable acceptable close face & head shave with errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

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

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

Semogue 2020 Badger - HWF #1 - RazoRock V2/Proshave S - Yardley Classic EDP

My last weekend scheduled shift before I retire....though that may change as COVID is decimating the staff numbers.
The Proshave blades are not the sharpest in the box....but they are adequate.

3 passes for a very smooth and close shave:)
