    Mastro Livi CarboInox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch

    A memorable shave. A stunning beautiful straight razor, a magnificent soap, a fabulous brush, a luxurious aftershave. I wanted the best for the first shave in which I used this superior, stunning, amazing and beautiful Mastro Livi CarboInox straight razor. I love Mastro Livi Carbon Damascus touch and thanks to this razor, which point is made of stainless steel, I discovered a new pleasure in shaving. The blade is velvety and smooth - like every Mastro Livi carbon damascus steel is - while the point becomes a little more aggressive - because of stainless steel - very effective is some particular spots of the face. A superior straight razor, just another proof of the craftsmanship, talent, art and skill of this remarkable Italian artisan, a genius in making straight razors, both in performance and beauty!

    • Pre-Shave: Myrsol Emulsión
    • Soap: Elberel P.160
    • Brush: Mastro Livi Silvertip, Makassar Ebony Handle, 26mm knot
    • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
    • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
    • Razor: Mastro Livi CarboInox, 6/8 Full Hollow, Barber's Notch
    • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extra Virgin Oil
    • After Shave: Floïd Blue

    First shave with this razor which was part of a 3 razor deal. It worked, but truthfully, I don't like anything about this blade and it is retired already.
    Some of you may have seen this odd clown in the razor section of the Bay. It came from an old barber shop in the Ozarks in MO that closed in the early 1960's and was on a shelf to hold candy for the little guys after a haircut.

    I touched up the edge of the Joseph Elliott on the Norton 8k and Shapton 16k hones; ten laps on each with a light slurry and ten without. The edge turned out excellent.
