@Kamp you must have a better honing session then me. The razor was usable, but it missed the smoothness you described. But your experience means that I will try again. The razor was totally silent. No audible feedback.

As after shave balsem I used a calendula cream by de tuinen. It is possibly a foot cream, but the ingrediënt list looks like you van use it as an as balm as well.

Mulcuto humpback razor + ASP #5

Dickinsons witch hazel
Tüff Herb, vdh balsem

After a beautifull and very nice bike ride I arrived at work. The office was in lockdown tough.

Today shave was very good. After seeing all those mulcuto's in the SOTD I decided also to use one. This one is straight, but with a hump in the cap so in the end it shaves like a schrägschnitt. The cap is metal. The handle and baseplate are bakelite.

The blade went to the blade bank.

Today the cap of the Williams menthol / ice fresh was taken off for the first time.
A good cream with a fresh scent and a reasonable cooling of the menthol actually nothing wrong with it. daumenh!

Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and TDS "Cream: evergreen juniper":
The foam was back in order with the J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and the TDS ""Cream: evergreen juniper"". Although, I didn't feel like juniper bushes in a nice piece of Twente nature with small streams and stuff. No more raw Russian odorless tundra. That's a pity, because the technical quality of the TDS soaps isn't wrong, but it clearly remains a challenge to put nice fragrances in shaving soaps, which are promised with the label.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Blue Super stainless for the 1st x used.
To still defy fate, used a Gillette Blue Super Super stainless. One of those Gillette in a blue wrapper from Shanghai. Well wasn't something and won't be something. Could have known better. But still with confidence in advancing technology, other razors etc. done, and look. I could shave with it, but that's all. In the RazoRock Game Changer 0.84-P the Gillette Blue Super Super stainless was not in stat to really good performance. Tomorrow no once to be sure in The Qshave try but think that this definitely to the department note more use, but remember, moves.
Result: DFS.
Finally: Refreshed and taken care of with the Green Freeze Lemon (Osage/Men/Cajuputi/Menthol/Lemon), Weleda Aftershave Balsam and Loris E-108 Hugo again a good feeling.
