Birthday SOTD:

If you get a new razor you have to use it 😀


Rockwell 6s
Shark stainless
B&M Seville soap and splash
Yaqi Snow Leopard synth.

First shave with the brand new big boy razor Rockwell 6s = a 4 pass monster shave.

Wtg on base 1 to play it safe felt like there was no blade in the razor at all.

Kicked it up to base 3 and did a three pass shave for a DFS. At no point did I feel like I was overdoing the shave. Zero nicks or cuts. This razor just oozes reliability.

Coupled with the fantastic Seville resulted in the lowest irritation I've ever had for a 3 pass, let alone 4 pass shave.

Fantastic razor, the shaves are going to be stepped up a notch from here on.
Again all the best for your special day @Ckoerntjes (y)

Karve C plate w/Polsilver
Yaqi barber pole synthetic
Pbgoose The GreenMac
Gaia ASB

The C plate is ultra smooth but not efficient enough for me as the post shave shadow was still dark for my liking.
Back to the D plate tomorrow.

Try the C plate again with a Feather blade ;)

Date: 23 February 2019

Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap
Brush:- RazoRock Plissoft Synth. 24/57mm knot
Soap/Cream:- Arko (4 shaving sticks grated into a 250ml plastic tub)
Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
Razor/Blade:- Gillette Rocket HD500 made in England 1950's / Vintage NOS Schick Plus Platinum #1
Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel & Tea Tree Oil / WAHL Bay Rum Aftershave Splash

5 more days to go for the whole month of Arko February shave.

The vintage Schick Plus Platinum blade feels like a bloody Feather blade which is very sharp and harsh on my skin...... CRIKEY!! :wideyed:
