Got the timeless out for the first time in two weeks, i do love this razor.

The timeless has less blade feel (barely anything) resulting in a smoother feel than the R41 while shaving. I cant tell anything apart from the closeness of the shaves as both give me smooth irritation free BBS.

Both awesome razors that provide a different 'feel' while shaving.. good to have variety

Pre-shave: Hot Shower
Brush: Yaqi Mysterious Space
Soap: A&E Signature
Razor: Timeless 0.95 SS
Blade: Polsilver SI (1)
Post-shave: A&E Signature Splash

Very similar shave once again other than a change of excellent aftershave!

Then I come out to find this:



Don’t be for a second thinking it was Chloe who did this! She’s just happy to be warm!

No. It was this monster:



Mums not gonna be happy when she sees this.....
Don't blame the poor dog down the hallway, this shy dog is just bored and wanted to have a bit of fun, even it's winter cold or raining outside because this dog wants to play or go for a jolly long walk.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Omega Pro 48 Boar
Soap: Boellis Panama 1924
Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: NOS Super Iridium BN-76 (5)
Post: Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel, CRSW Alcohol-Free American Barbershop Moisturising Aftershave
Scent: Knize Ten EdT

Much better results second time out with the big boar. Whilst it splays well, I found that painting strokes seem to be its forte.
Wonderful lather and performance from perhaps my favourite shaving soap, Boellis Panama 1924.
Three passes for a DFS+ result.

Another shave with the R41 under the belt and i think i enjoy shaving with this more than my timeless. I really love this razor, no burn, no irritation, no nicks/weepers and a super close shave, cant ask for more

Might have one last shave left with the A&E Signature, that will make it 3 soaps down and might tackle the APR LaVioletta next

Got a new dropper bottle for my DIY oil. It's excellent, with a perfect pour speed for accurate dispensing.

Marvelous shave today. This would have to be my #1 combination for an easy, comfortable, dolphin skin shave!!
