The Mambo 0.7 (modified Tjebbe ;)) used for the second time. Am I madly excited no, why not now everyone will be wondering?

Well it shaves very comfortably only the efficiency is way too low for me or I think it shaves way too mildly.

Let's say that in terms of comfort it's reminiscent of the Gamechanger 0.84 only it's much more efficient.

One question to everyone due to private circumstances I am not able to follow the Grand Prix live this afternoon. :eek:
Doesn't anyone here want to betray the results otherwise there's so little point in watching the recordings tonight. :kommnurher1

The post shave feeling of this soap is one of the best! Many of the nowadays hyped soaps by far don’t reach that!

Brush and soap:
Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm and Dead Sea Shave - Tempest:
If you like a tight brush that brushes nicely into the face with firm foam, then this Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm is absolutely not your thing. No, this brush has a certain class, which can only be experienced if you want to rub a lot of foam on your head and then shave the entire head with plenty of strokes. Let that just be my approach and so I'm quite happy with this Oumo, which I received, because the previous owner (Jan Zoethout) didn't like this type of tie at all. The brush makes the Dead Sea Shave - Tempest a nice full foam. It disappears completely in the bun, but then I have enough to soak myself 3 times.
Blade and razor:
The Astra Superior Platinium for the 3rd time used.
The Astra Superior Platinium is the 3rd x better than the previous 2. Clearly a case of running in. I found these blades for little on the Albert Cuyp in Amsterdam. Read somewhere, that the new batches were experienced as less than the older ones. Well judging from the packaging (the overbox) this is a newer one, compared to the others I have. I don't experience any difference, the older blades of this kind always had to catch up as well. This morning I was smooth again. Decisive for this result was finally the Mulcuto Schrägschnitt (metal), that really allows the Astra Superior Platinium to pass through the beard accurately to the skin. You guessed it, a successful shave again.
Result: BBS.
Finally: this party ended with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon, Mennen Baume Energisant and Pinaud-Clubman Special Reserve. Well what else can I say about it. Just fine!

I misser a spot here and there but not bad. The weather in the Netherlands has been quite grey the last data. It almost did me reach to the Tabac. In the end I could restrain myself. I'm trying to finish the speick. It is still not gone. Finished with a lot of pitralon. The advantage of having to work from home.
