Pre-Shave: Kiss my Face Olive Oil Soap, cold water
Razor: Hoffritz Travel Slant
Blade: Voskhod (1)
Brush: Doug Korn D7V
Lather: Mystic Water Lime
Post-Shave: Alum, Thayers Original Alcohol Free Witch Hazel, South Australian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil​

Very satisfying shave after 6 days growth. This razor is truly magnificent - what a shame nobody has cloned it yet in a more durable material...

The wonderful Mystic Water lather just added to the perfect shave.

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday (y)

Wonderful BBS!
It's so similar to the Karve that for all the Karve lovers, the marvel would be the ideal travel razor. It'll definitely be for me.

The finishing on a US$40 is poor though so keep that in mind.

The bath house soap is a delight! I just love the zingy scent!!

Barrister & March SOTD....



Pre: Hot Shower, Truefitt & Hill Oil....
Razor: Wolfman WR1-SB....
Blade: Feather....
Brush: Paladin El Dorado....
Soap: B&M Seville....
Post: B&M Seville Aftershave and EDT....


It’s somewhat fitting that I get my first use of the Wolfman WR1 on Grand Prix Weekend in Melbourne....
I can’t think of another item that has attracted so much of my attention as this razor has....
It is a marvel, it is beautiful, it is a sculpture, it is functional....

Wonderful three pass shave this morning for our first outing together....
Is the WR1 worth the money/time/effort to get - like blades, worth is subjective but for me after just one dance the answer is absolutely....
