New Year's Day's Shave
[Image: zcws.jpg]

Cold Water Rinse
De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #395 Badger
Triceratops 3D Printed Razor
Personna GEM SS PTFE
CWR
Pinaud Citrus Musk EdC

Today: Triceratops with black top, black handle.

The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #395 Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the Triceratops 3D Printed Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EdC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Sorry guys, i have not been posting as much lately as i have been using some of my unmentionable collection, However, this month i am running a vintage month, again though there will be some SE unmentionables and unmentionable unmentionables - if you know what i mean.
So, 
I decided to use the original wedge today to keep the razor in its full vintage mode.
Apparently today is the anniversary of the Henckels Rapide patent.
I bowl lathered the Signature soap using the wall of badger that is the Silver Birch Brushes, 26mm Cocobolo, plenty of lovely lather for the shave.
I completed my Unmentionable SE 2 pass routine and the blade performed well enough, although i noticed ATG it was tugging a little, i may need to get it on the hones.
The finish is easily a DFS++ and my skin is comfortable and soft, no real indication from the Alum rub finishing with the Proraso post shave and splash.
All in All very happy with that shave.

This was my first shave of the new year. I went with the Gem Bullet tip with guiding eye. I don't use this razor often because it's a milder razor. But with a little extra work it delivers a great shave.
