    • Brush: AP Shave Co Lemondrop 28mm SynBad

    • Razor: ERN 7/8 Full Hollow Round Point

    • Lather: Spearhead Shaving Company - Seaforth! Sea Spice Lime - Soap

    • Toner: Thayers - Rose - Toner

    2 passes. Face lather. Excellent shave.


    SSL is the perfect summer scent. Today’s shave was another test shave. This razor had a bunch of issues, and I was convinced that the shave would be lousy. Nope! Terrific shave from this razor. The video I made while working on the razor is quite long and will take me a while to cut down to size. I’ll update this comment when that’s done.

    Here is the video.

    Happy 4th to those of you who are Americans!

        SSL was such a stunner when it first came out, but Shawn has managed to make each Seaforth! scent unique and world-class.

    • Brush: Maggard 24mm Tuxedo Synthetic
    • Razor: Chiseled Face - Legacy Raw Titanium (#69)
    • Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (2)
    • Lather: Barrister & Mann - Lyssa - Soap
    • Post Shave: Southern Witchcrafts - Roman Spice - Aftershave

    Southern Witchcrafts Roman Spice?! Yes, well… I had unscented aftershave from SW from when I did AA using unscented stuff, and I had a sample of Roman Spice from Dennis, so I figured I see if it’d work.

    It did work, and it’s pretty great. The scent strength is just about perfect.

      a sample of Roman Spice from Dennis

      Was it a frag sample or splash?

        Frag. It was really strong, and just a tiny vial with a dipper, no atomizer. I sort of wonder if it was higher than EdP strength. Straight frag oil, even.

        Dennis sold a small amount on discord for $5 to cover shipping.

        I actually didn’t like the scent out of the vial, but I love it diluted in some aftershave.

    茉莉綠茶

    • Brush: Zenith 506B MB (27 mm × 51 mm Manchurian badger)
    • Razor: Zwilling J. A. Henckels Friodur 14 (8/8", extra hollow ground, stainless steel)
    • Lather: Noble Otter – 茉莉綠茶
    • Post Shave: Noble Otter – 茉莉綠茶
    • Fragrance: Imaginary Authors – Sundrunk

    Noble Otter did it again. I love how they do tea scents! This set also arrived during LG and had to wait until now to get tried.

    The upcoming $FriodomRiders challenge has me excited so I went with my big Frio today. Great shave.
