    The Big Shave 11th November 2017



    Todays big shave I am mixing it up a little. I have been using wedges and near wedges for a while BUT about a month ago I bought a beautiful 11/16” Custom Bellied Full Hollow from Victor Creazzi - his website details are included in the video and below. Victor’s razor was so sharp and comfortable that I did a 4-pass shave. ZERO razor burn - just wonderful.

    BTW De Vergulde Hand in Dutch translates to The Gilded Hand

    If you like this video please subscribe to my YouTube Channel!!

    Victor's blades can be found at Bluesman Blades :: Razors hand forged, ground, and honed by me in Colorado

    Chemicals

    PREP Pre-Shave Cream
    Portugal 4711 Eau De Cologne
    Razorock Alum Block
    De Vergulde Hand Puck Soap from Amsterdam

    Mechanicals

    Semogue Boar Brush
    Victor Creazzi 11/16” Bellied Full Hollow Custom
    Lathered in the pot - no shaving bowl!

    Herman, if you want to try a great boar brush, the Zenith 28 x 61mm is excellent. It probably has the best boar knot I have ever tried.
