Synchronise my week with the forum week, a start to use new things on sunday in stead of monday. The Hema blade is much better as expected i could use it 7 times. Today i noticed i have to say goodbay to it.
New things i used today, never used before, are Sweyn Forkbeard cream and the AP Shave CO 28mm Silksmoke Winter handle. The cream was much better then expected, some reviewers wrote that it don't created a good lather but i had a very rich and creamy lather and good glide. The fibers on the AP Silksmoke knot are much stiffer then earlier versions but still good.

Nivea Sensitive ASB
Razorock Don Donato AS Splash
These Gillette blades seem to perform very well although they’re not quite as smooth and comfortable as the Astras or Wilkinsons but I do find them better than the Sharks. The Bielita cream from Belarus has such a lovely scent, it gives great lather, and there’s a mild but nice menthol sensation. This Nivea Sensitive balm to me anyway, doesn’t smell so nice but it does give excellent postshave care and it’s very moisturizing as well as soothing. The Don Donato aftershave from Razorock is also mildly mentholated and I love its sporty scent. BBS from two quick passes - what more could I ask!

Brush and soap:
J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad and Proraso Wood and Spice:
As today is a travel day again, the morning ritual shouldn't take too long. 25 instead of 30 minutes. With carefree stuff that's no problem. So the J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad with Proraso Wood and Spice in the stainless steel dish. That's so foam and lubricate easily.
Blade and razor:
The Gem Personna Pfte for the 5th x used.
The Gem Personna Pfte knife is still extremely sharp after 4x and therefore does 5 easily. The Gem G Bar with this Gem Personna Pfte is a great combination to shave thoughtlessly and quickly smooth. Perfectly fits and so it went this morning.
Finally: Finishing with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün edc, Proraso Wood and Spice ASB and Proraso Wood and Spice cologne made it a pretty woody moment. Nice and smooth.
Meanwhile one the next campsite.
Third time around for the Joris, less blood this time, still red spots where my skin feels peeled. Two more rounds to go for a decision is made, i did feel the same about the Fatip Piccolo at first, but then again, this one is a lot more bloodthirsty, even more than the Timeless OC 0.95, and that's saying something, as i have that one barely under control.
The Evil Zebra is a great brush, very smooth and feeling like silk on the skin, the SDM is such a nice scent, and the soap is of the high standard expected from Stirling, th AS Balm has a 'darker' scent compared to the soap, a bit more heavy, and the top notes vary from what is top in the soap, still a great combination.
