Friday's Shave

Cold Water Rinse
Arko Stick
Tom's 3D Printed Brush
AutoStrop A1
Gem Blue Star
CWR
Clubman Pinaud AS

The Arko Shave Soap Stick face-lathered well with Tom's 3D Printed Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 with a Gem Blue Star SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Clubman Pinaud AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Its been a while since i have used the Occam's Classic V1, she is an odd looking duck, however, she does not half deliver, it is basically a single piece razor (once you have selected and fitted your plate preference), there is a small "Key" to fit the blade, although i do not use it, i just slide the blade in from the back until it clicks onto the location nubs, the blade sort of "Floats" and is not clamped in any way really, in fact it can even rattle in there.

A really nice lather from the Arlington scented DR Harris, i am going to run with it all this week. Today whipped up in the 3D printed bowl by a kind member of another forum, i find it works really well.

2 passes left a DFS+ finish and as i had the lather i decided to complete an full ATG pass instead of buffing, i am as smooth as a new Billiard ball.

A nice post shave routine finishing with the Vintage 4711.

BBS, Feeling and smelling really good.

Stay safe and enjoy your day All

Strange looking but it just works so well.

I completed 3 passes for an easy BBS finish, i could have got away with 2 passes and a bit buffing but had the lather so - hey ho.

No too close but close to too close, if you know what i mean.

I used the alum today and got some indication which disappeared quickly.

A very nice post shave sorting everything out.

Feeling and smelling tip top.

Stay Safe and enjoy your Day
