  • Razorock Gamechanger .84p Bulldog grip
  • Persona Blue (4)
  • DSC Marble 30mm Tuxedo
  • Noble Otter - Monarch
The Persona and the Razorock do not match very well, a good shave, not a great, the Lord en Rapira perform better in this head.
The Bulldog grip is a nice combination, it makes the whole more maneuverable. The soap is a star, it smells simply heavenly, and no aftershave needed, as this scent will stay for several hours.

Brush and soap:
LiJüN silvertip 3 band and Mama Bear Ice:
Nice fresh shave this morning with the LiJüN silvertip 3 band and Mama Bear Ice. Although the weather doesn't really call for cooling down, a beautiful Bear Ice foam is not to be sneezed at to get the head clear. In this case also nice and smooth.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) for the 2nd time used.
Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) was the weapon for this morning. Turn 2, because yesterday it was also used. In the RazoRock Game Changer 0.84-P the Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) is pretty tame. Shaves absolutely safe.
Result: BBS.
Finally: To stay in the fresh line Green Freeze Lemon (Osage/Mennen/Cajuputi/Menthol/Lemon) on it, that opens the eyes further! Mennen Baume Energisant slowed this down nicely and the Loris E-048 Cool Water gave an extra nice scent.

We often look (and I almost always look to the west) at the new generation of safety razors, mostly American, because they combine comfort with efficiency, but I sometimes forget about the gems of the past.

One of those gems is the Karl Engels, who proves time and again to be a top size safety razor. :daumenhoch

I got this cream from @The King recently. A nice interpretation of Lavender. The shaving properties are good, especialy the post shave feel. Have a good day!

Brush and soap:
Luyixian Synth-24x68 and Stirling Wintergreen:
Yesterday evening a beautiful game dinner consumed in a renowned establishment accompanied by delicious wines..... here in the area. Then recorded Formula 1 and late in bed, so this morning we woke up calmly and for that the Luyixian Synth-24x68 brush with the Stirling Wintergreen was waiting for me. Well that was the loud bell. Nice foam whipped in the Polish bowl. Head all around in the froth and yes it cools, stimulates and awakens the spirit to life. Nice start of the week.
Blade and scraper:
The Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) for the 3rd x used.
The Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) did a great job. Cutting smooth hairs. In the Qshave, the Gillette-Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel (India) is perfectly in place. Nice cut with this combination, which I had quite mildly at 2.5. That was enough for a good billiard ball result.
Result: BBS.
Finally: A nice shot of Stirling Wintergreen AS gave a pretty refreshing finish. Some Weleda Aftershave Balsam to make things supple and smooth again, after which the Loris E-108 Hugo gives off a nice scent, which goes well with the wintergreen.
