    Prep face wash L'Occitane vetiver soap
    Razor Filarmonica 13 Doble Temple 13/16
    Strop Kanayama cordovan #8000
    Brush Rooney Heritage stubby 2
    Mondial bergamot & neroli Italian soap
    Alum & Thayers toner
    Kiehl's aftershave balm
    Creed Tabarome Millesime Eau de parfum.


    This NOS Filarmonica 13 Doble Temple 13/16 landed on my doorstep a few days ago, with the original factory edge box and grease covered blade, well all I did was clean the grease off and gave it a light hone and stropping, a very good shave and no less than I expected.

    Maybe we get again more than 100 F today.
    It is the right temperature to go to a pool like the Furnace Creek Ranch has one. Hot Springs are using for the pool...

    Prep: Hot shower
    Brush: New Forest 2201
    Razor: Alexander Coppel, Solingen
    Soap: Nannys French Lavender
    AS: Proraso
    Edt: Penhaligon's Castile
    Strops: Neil Miller
    Result: Very, very clean

    This brush's all you really need and I always bring it for the holidays, which starts tomorrow in Barcelona . So today a medly from the week (that I never got around to post). This razor took a really nice bevel, but was a bit "raw" (early in the week)...


    ... but it only needed a good stropping (aorund 100 laps wasn't enough) and this shave was truly wonderful and it now performs like the very best Solingen razors out there:


    I had a two day stubble and I brought out one of the heavy guys, my C V Heljestrand no 9 ½, with a ½ to 1/4 grind. The Windsor cream truly has the loveliest scent (cheers to MR Magnus for the cream!):


    JBHoren, rum, baldy and 29 others like this.
