Brush and soap:
Vie-Long Epsilon White Horse Hair "Fan Shape" 27mm and Chiseled Face Trade Winds:
The horse, Vie-Long Epsilon White Horse Hair "Fan Shape" 27mm, again brought out of the stable. Galloped well over the Chiseled Face Trade Winds with this, until the lather was on the brush. Nice full firm lather, with a pleasant spiced, tarred sails, really one of those old sailboat scents.
Blade and razor:
Used the Ladas Super stainless for the 4th time.
The Ladas Super stainless is performing well for the 4th turn. In the Paradigm Diamondback this Ladas Super stainless feels quite pleasant. Although they roll off the same belt as the Rapira Platinum Lux, the latter still has my preference. Having said that, I must also admit that this Ladas does a fine job.
Result: BBS.
Finally: the Trade Winds is extended nicely with the Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün, Toco-Tholin Lavender ASB and Pinaud-Clubman Special Reserve.

Brush and soap:
Luyixian Synth-24x68 and TDS Cosmetics Cream: evergreen juniper:
The TDS Cosmetics Cream: evergreen juniper is a sturdy juniper soap with the typical resin component of the TDS soaps. This resin gives the soap a masculine base, which I had to get used to at first, but I am starting to appreciate it more and more. With the simple syntheet Luyixian Synth-24x68, stuck in an old Vero handle, this really hard soap lathers up easily and then gives a thick liquid lather, with good gliding properties.
Blade and razor:
Used the Ladas Super stainless for the 5th time.
The Ladas Super stainless has met my 5 standard. In the Apollo OC the Ladas Super stainless is still on the cutting edge and the result is again super smooth.
Result: BBS.
Finally: finished with Abzehk Olive edc, Abzehk Olive oil cream and the matching TDS Cosmetics Juniper ASL. Feels well cared for, but the green colour was actually more the motivation for this choice, than the scent palette, which is otherwise fine.

Vintage boar brush
Haslinger Schafmilch shaving soap
Matador + astra sp #5
Proraso alum
TFS witch hazel
Pitralon original as, MWF body lotion

First use of the vintage brush. It whipped up a nice lather. The brush has a nice amount of splay to paint the lather on the face.

The matador precision is a really great razor. Comfortable but also efficient.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm and Chiseled Face Ghost Town Barber:
A fresh fragrant start for the day with Proraso Crema Pre Barba and fine lather whipped with the J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm from the Chiseled Face Ghost Town Barber. This soap really has that solid scent of barbershop and gunpowder fumes. Really nice masculine.
Blade and razor:
Used the Ladas Super stainless for the 6th time. The Ladas Super stainless holds up quite well. In the Timeless Solid Bar scalloped 0.95 the Ladas Super stainless is still efficient and yet comfortable. Tomorrow another time. Result BBS.
Finally: nice with worn scents of Abzehk Tütün (Tabac), Naturlife Krem Vazelin Argan Ve Aloevera Özlü care and Pinaud-Clubman After shave lotion Original, which I like very much finished. Satisfied again.
