    Razor – Vasili Thalis – Black Diamond
    Brush – Vintage HESS #5
    Soap – Mike’s natural – Orange, cedar wood & black pepper
    AST – OSMA ALUM
    AS – Myrsol Agua Balsamica
    Talcum – Caswell Massey, Jockey Club on Vintage HESS neck brush

    This blade was final finished on a Nakayama Mizu Asagi pictured below. Full shave tested WTG & ATG un-stropped. A good way to apply talcum is to find an old Barbers neck brush and sprinkle some talc on it. Tap out excess over the sink. Daub on your face and neck for a nice drying effect. Have a nice day!

    The song came into my mind as I looked at the razor and the cream searching for something connecting them: Proraso AS gave me the answer.
    For me the shave is like an art masterpiece: without a proper title it losts half of the magic...

    Found this at a local antique store yesterday. Stropped it and had a great shave. I couldn't find any information on this blade though.

    I'm really starting to enjoy my Sunday morning "Daddy Time" shaves. Since my hair doesn't grow in any particular direction I'm doing N-S, Chin-Ear, S-N, and today I added an additional N-S pass. Results, one of my smoothest shaves to date which got the response of "You are getting better" from SWMBO.

    It is a great shave cream. I did a review of it on another forum but I don't think it is okay for me to link to that. If I get permission I will be glad to do so.
