    I very rarely shave everyday, I have always had a good growth, but I like giving my skin that day off, so today was unusual given that I shaved yesterday, now onto the shave, well there's no surprise with this setup, you can almost guarantee a BBS shave. Until we meet again good day to you all gentlemen.

    Default Sunday morning

    I needed to give this razor a second chance today.
    I was not fully enjoying it yesterday, due to the events here in Oslo.

    Pre-Shave: Hot shower
    Brush: Rooney's Finest, 25mm
    Razor:Puma #90, 5/8
    Strop: Neil Miller Custom Shell Cordovan.
    Soap/Cream: Floris Elite Shaving Soap
    Scuttle:Schwarzweisskeramik, Large White
    Astringent: Alum
    After shave Balm: Floris Elite ASB
    EdT: Floris Elite Eau de Cologne
    Results: This new Puma was a pleasure to use. I have a few Puma's and they are all very fine razors with good steel. The Floris products are IMO very good, fully on par with the other traditional English houses. In fact, I'd go so far as to say even better than most of them

    Location: Coffs Harbour Australia
    Strop: MickR's Kangaroo Hide
    Brush: Premium Silvertip Badger in Cocobolo
    Soap: MDC (Thank you Glenn)
    Razor: John Hassal 6/8 Near Wedge
    Astringent: Thayer's Original Witch Hazel
    Balm: C.O. Bigelow Mentha
    A/S: Wahl Bay Rum
    After 3 days without a shave I was feeling a bit like a caveman. The Hassal wedge received 10 laps on the CrOx balsa strop just for the occasion. She did not disappoint. 3 days growth wiped away with 3 passes leaving me smooth as a baby's butt. It doesnt get much better than this.
