Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Paladin Lotus Select Badger
Soap: The Art of Shaving (NOS Tallow)
Razor: Feather AS-D2
Blade: Vintage NOS Wilkie Light Brigade (3)
Post: Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel, CRSW Alcohol-Free American Barbershop Moisturising Aftershave
Scent: Barrister & Mann Leviathan EdT

First use of the AOS soap. The performance was very good, and its characteristics seem to confirm that this soap was indeed made for AOS by Valobra (as are the Czech and Speake soaps). The scent was a gentle natural sandalwood; perhaps it has faded a little over time. Very thirsty, and intensely thick lubricious lather with excellent persistence. Three very comfortable passes for a DFS+; the Leviathan's sandalwood notes providing a nice match for the soap scent.

Awesome shave this morning. Staying at Lakes Entrance in VIC. Hired a boat this morning and putted around the inlets today. Was great. Even seen some dolphins!

Razor: Colonial General
Blade: Feather Pro Super (1)
What a combo to finish the shaving year! Not feeling 100% today and there's something therapeutic about Back Beet for me. Luxurious creamy lather applied with the big boar and the smooth cut of the Pro Super in the General left me feeling somewhat refreshed. :)
Happy New Year guys! Looking forward to sharing more shaves and talking all things shaving with you next year.
