Nothing like a freshly honed blade.:) I'm a fan of TI's carbonsong, beautiful steel to hone.

Blade: Feather (3)
Pre: Shower
Bowl: Pereira Shavery Lathering Bowl
Soap: APR Suitably Attired Australian LE

My last 3 shaves = effortless, smooth and comfortable. Almost finished the soap but thankfully I still have a tub of the Suitably Attired Summer which is an equally pleasant scent. Finished off with some wonderful Serum... Looking forward to a head shave tomorrow using the trusty Leaf razor... Happy shaves!

Superlative shave.

Wolfman Guerilla with a non-OEM handle (fabulous CNC on the handle with a lovely weight). I just have to remember where the handle originated from. But a very generous member of this forum sold both to me (thank you). Always wanted a Guerilla.

Paired very well with Polsilver blade ; Rockwell synthetic brush & Sandalwood shaving cream

Soap: Pb Brazilian Bay Thyme
Brush: Omega 10083
Razor: Timeless Bronze
Blade: Ladas (3)
Another one bites the dust. I'd be sad Bay Thyme is finished if I couldn't replace it.......but I can.....and I will.:)
Just for the record @tim33z , I'm not snubbing your finished products thread, my soaps have been heavily sampled for family and friends so it's not all my own work and am not sure that I've actually finished anything on my own.:) Good thing is I'm reasonably shaveapocalypse proof. That's the important thing.....right?

No offence taken mate. Plenty of guys are starting to get in the “use this tub up” routine.
My real query is whether everyone else seems to “use one, buy 3 more?”
That’s what had me come unstuck. I used up around 8-9 full tubs in 2019, but bought well over 20 as well. This year is my year to turn that number around. I’ve used 1, binned 1 and 2 weeks away from finishing another (all within 2 months)

Prep: Hot Shower
Brush: Declaration Jeffo B7 Peach
Razor: Gillette NEW SC
Blade: GSB (3)
Lather: Declaration Grooming - Massacre of the Innocents - Soap
Post Shave: Australian Private Reserve - Fenchurch - Aftershave
Fragrance: PdM Herod

Once again, this NEW SC impresses me with an extremely close shave with very little irritation. One nick on the chin. 85% BBS after the usual 3 passes (WTG, XTG, ATG) + minor clean up.

This B7 is both beautiful to look at and is fantastic to use. More on this new acquisition soon.

Milksteak makes life easy and MOTI is an all star scent. I draw from this well frequently.

Fenchurch is also in a league of its own and deserves a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
