Brush - Razorock Big Bruce
Soap - B&M Reserve Cool sample
Razor - Rockwell 6s (4)
Blade - Voskhod (5)
Aftershave - AP Reserve Skye Fall

Very nice shave today with a pretty good lather. Loaded same as before but with a slightly more damp brush.
I think this is the most shaves from the same Voskhod blade I’ve had and while very comfortable to use, I think I’ve had closer shaves. Maybe 5 is too much for this blade?

As others have said and will continue to:

Mmmmm Skye Fall....

Great shave with my 6/8" Tanifuji. Smooth and sharp.
Brush tonight was my gigantic Turkish barber's brush and my soap. Great lather but I have to admit I'm getting bored with this one so will make a new one on the weekend.
Post shave was the Macadamia nut oil with Lemon Myrtle.

And .. my beer is ready to go across to the keg so all seems fine.

Good shave with this soap, razor and a Gillette Black blade. Normally I ride the cap quite a bit particularly on my neck, but today I tried to keep a normal angle and no buffing. Turned out ok but a small area just to the right of the jugular is a tad prickly. No one else would notice though.

All the usual gear this morning. Got the last shave out of reserve cool sample and still cant get along with the scent at all.im also not over impressed with the soap base. It can give a good shave but is overly fussy and takes to long to work the lather up. There are just so many other soaps on the market that work better and easier so I dont think I'll be buying a tub of any of the reserve soaps.out of all the ones I got fern is the only one I enjoyed scent wise and I hear someone local makes a good version of that in a terrific base.

Was on a Bay Rum run but had to interrupt the program with this. Packed a sample of Mirrors & Smoke for a mate yesterday and thought 'yep, that's on the menu for tomorrow', and I wasn't sorry..... fine shave.
