Tony, very kindly, put a Thuringian edge on this razor. Shaves very comfortable!

I once had the Amber shaving soap from Petal Pusher and to this day it is one of the most fragrant soaps I have owned.

As far as I know it's no longer available and I think that's a real shortcoming. :(

I had the Amber. To be honest I could not really care for the scent, so I gave it to my father who still enjoys the soap very much. They are large tins and go a long way.

Tonights instruments for a fabulous shave, if I may say so myself.
All day I was contemplating on what Stirling to use (I just have three...) but then I noticed the MWF on the topshelf. It had been a while so the Stirling will have to wait. Must have been divine intervention.
Anyhow, MWF loaded sideways never disappoints, Combined with this excellent razor resulted in a more than enjoyable shave.
Finished with my recently acquired vintage bottle of aftershave Mennen Wild Moss.

The Mamba always gives me a pleasant shave, it might not be the most efficient but my face feels smooth and stubblefree!

Didb some work on the Grelot yesterday as it is warped, but I'm not satisfied. The shave was passable, but it's not where I want is. Back to the stones.

January is generally a meaningless month so I leave it to him to make up some products. rasierensmilie

As there are the Extro Arancia Italiana this smell is too strong and too one-dimensional.
In that respect I must say that the Extro shaving soap and after shaves are good but absolutely not top. :augenroll1

The Harris Eucalyptus is a more than fantastic cream but oh well I have several soaps of this scent that also combined with Tea Tree and menthol are even better smell. :yes_nicken

Such a nice razor this, comfortable and efficient, 3 rounds and smooth, and such a nice soap to use, great foam, and great smell. This is the third shave of the new year, the other two fell trough the cracks ;-)
