Merkur Progress set on 2 gave a very aggressive close shave, but after 3 passes wasn't BBS. So will really need to learn the razor. Simply design, built like a tank and very different to the Gillette adjustables that I'm used to. Very impressed with it so far.

The Brushguy has a very deep set knot, compensating well for the soft synthetic. I bought it for the handle, but think I'll keep the knot in for now. The Cryogen soap was a bit much for me, and with tears streaming down my face after the first pass I was regretting using it. But the post shave feel is remarkable and the base is a world class soap.
Shaving in the dark...lol.

Nice one Jegreen!

Nice weekend shave gents

Prep
RVT - The Cabin
Wild West - Mantle
Gibbs with Long Handle

I had two days worth of growth and intended using an open comb but this handle is leaving for the land of the free and I just had to use it before
it left.

What a fabulous menthol escapade and a great shave I had just before - the Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap started the ball rolling with its nice cooling sensation, the Glacial Black Cherry lathered up rich with its bone-chilling freeze, and the Glacial Unscented balm prolonged that iciness. Finally, the Arctique gave me its own special overwhelming frigid punch which I love so much. I changed up my technique a little - instead of going ATG on my second pass I went XTG and it cleaned me up BBS.

Nice one Thug. This looks like more of a Kamisori style blade.

This shave was exactly the same as the one I had yesterday but with a different scent. The Glacial Spearmint soap churned up into magnificent, frigid, delightfully-scented lather and my Goodfella knocked off the rough stubble with ease. The matching balm felt equally cold as well as very soothing and the Alcolado Glacial really made me shiver. BBS in two passes!
