    Bill, that is one of my favorite brushes. Both my brother and I use one.. so sweet! I just used one and wanted to capture the SOTD, but camera was out of juice.

    Sigi Solingen, Theater 2 band, and P160. Followed by proraso lotion. Refreshing shave.

    Pre Art of Shaving Unscented Oil + Cyril R. Salter shaving soap + Semogue SOC + Weber Bulldog with Merkur head and Filomatic #1 + Ach. Brito Lavanda colgone with Proraso balm


    An excellent shave! Fortunately I got enough lather with this SOC boar for my usual three passes without much problem (other Semogue are really foam hunger), and this Filomatic blade is wonderful! A shame that it was discontinnued...


    Cheers!
    Please, excuse my written English, I'm Spanish and still learning... ;-)

    Shave of the Day (SOTD) Merkur/Menthol Monday January 7, 2013
    Prep: Brush soaked in warm water, face washed with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cleanser, luke warm shower
    Razor: Merkur Mergress XL
    Blade: Gillette Super Thin (2)
    Brush: GDCarrington Custom Maple Apple Brush with Ace Shaving 22mm High Density Silvertip
    Cream: Ingram Lather Shave Cream (UK Version)
    AS: Mennen Skin Bracer Original with added Menthol
    Post: Cold Water Rinse, Double Splash of Aftershave


    Although I just used it yesterday, I had to use the Mergress XL again today. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this razor? Although I like to mix things up with my rotation, if I had to pick only ONE, this would be it. I am pretty sure this ha stopped my RAD (until the new line of German razors are released).

    First use of the Ingram Lather Shave Cream, which is sort of a mixed bag for me. The latherability I would only rate a C+ at best, as it takes far too much product to get the right consistency. The scent reminds of me of Ivory soap, so clean but also institutional. The menthol level grows after applying the lather. At first I did not think it had much menthol and that I would need to add some menthol to it, but it ended up giving a nice cooling sensation. It is does not provide as much cushion or slickness that I would prefer, and although it is inexpensive, you can find much better quality creams in the same price point.

    The shave itself was fantastic. The combo of the Gillette Super Thin blade and the Mergress was able to provide a BBS in three passes with minor touch up.
