    Pre: Musgo Real Lime Oil soap, Myrsol Emulsion
    Brush: Tony Forsyth P&C LE 2017 Platypus

    Soap: Squadron Soaps Spitfire
    Razor: ATT Kronos R2
    Blade: Vintage Gillette Sword Super Silver (2)
    Post: Argo Neo Gold

    After the surgical exfoliation of my facial epidermis courtesy of the H2 plate, I eased back to the R2 plate. Still a lot of blade feel, but much more comfortable and limited irritation. Another very close shave.
    The Squadron Spitfire soap was a pleasure to use, as was the excellent and very affordable Bulgarian balm Argo Neo Gold.

    Brush: Vintage butterscotch Simpson
    Soap/Cream: le Père Lucien shaving soap
    Aftershave Splash: Secret splash sample 'L'

    Wanted a plain base to try this splash sample on. The sample was very nice face feel and lovely moisturising properties. The scent, 'Christmas' according to my wife and I'd have to agree,

    Back to week day shave. Think I have the brush dialled in now. Never thought it would be that hard! Plenty of lather and such a fine scent as well. This one does stick with you for a while after the shave and I am happy about that. One weeper but pretty sure that was a follow on from the feather a few days ago. Hopefully my shipment arrives in today. May be able to finally have some post shave entry to make apart from Dickensons and Thayers.

  7. Good stuff, Mate! I have re-discovered yellow 7 O'Clocks of late, while only using Russian blades for the past six weeks apart from 3 or 4 shaves with a Gem SE and Gem blades. I have found 7 OC blades give me an extremely good shave... I have used them with several razors... including 3 different OCs. My new Maggard synthetic brush has me well and truly won over to synths as well. I will still use a hog occasionally though. Really surprised by the 7OC blades.

    Proraso day today! A leisurely shave and a great 3 pass BBS to boot... there was nothing to complain about. Followed up with CK Obsession...

    Fantastic shave I can't fault it, I'm really honing in on making all combos of my current gear work, might have to sell some off in exchange for NEW items

    Great photo, @todras ! As a fellow DNA fan, would be interested in your thoughts on the "42" range.

    I like 42, it's a mixture of black pepper/petunias, tea and lemon notes. Quite mild and ideal for spring.
