Yaqi R1605-S Tuxedo,
TFS Anniversary Italian Fern,
Merkur 38C HD Long Handle Barber Pole,
National Standard (carbon 0.10 mm) 1st x,
Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon,
Braukmann Sport Cream,
Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio .


Brush and soap:
Yaqi R1605-S Tuxedo and TFS Anniversary Italian Fern:
With the Yaqi R1605-S Tuxedo nicely sweet and mossy fern-like lather whipped from the TFS Anniversary Italian Fern. About the foam quality of the TFS I do not need to talk, just good.
Blade and razor:
Used the National Standard (carbon 0.10 mm) for the 1st time.
The National Standard (carbon 0.10 mm) is a 3-hole razor from the old box. Nice to use, but also very stiff and rough. Tomorrow I will use it again in another razor and then I hope for a little more comfort. The blade is sharp enough. The Merkur 38C HD Long Handle Barber Pole does not feel very comfortable with this National Standard (carbon 0.10 mm). Tomorrow again and then see if I continue with this. Result is good, but with the 38C it takes some effort.
Result: BBS.
Finally: with the Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon, Braukmann Sport Cream and Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio finished and a nice fougère shaving.

3P La Crema Prodigio,
J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad,
Le Père Lucièn - Rose de Pushkar,
Gem G Bar,
Gem Personna Pfte 4th x,
PeReJa Rose edc,
Kashmir Rose Lanna Oriental Spa Lotion,
Provence et Nature Rose Fernelle.


Brush and soap:
J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad and Le Père Lucièn - Rose de Pushkar:
After good smearing with 3P La Crema Prodigio and with the J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad nice foaming and brushing on the Le Père Lucièn - Rose de Pushkar it could start again.
Blade and razor:
Used the Gem Personna Pfte for the 4th time. Unfortunately, the National Standard (carbon 0.10 mm) immediately failed and went into the piggy bank, as it did not allow me to shave like I am used to. So I grabbed a Gem Personna Pfte, which had been used 4 times already and yes, it does shave. In the Gem G Bar gives this Gem Personna Pfte, that smooth nice shave feeling and not that pull of a museum blade. The remaining Nationals are going in the storage box for posterity. Result BBS.
Finally, nice floral finish with PeReJa Rose edc, Kashmir Rose Lanna Oriental Spa Lotion and Provence et Nature Rose Fernelle. Was another fine shave after all.
