    SOTD SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 18, 2020

    Well the jury’s out after three shaves, this French Point UK Sheffield Steel Manhattan Cutlery straight razor is an incredible razor. A true whisker-melting shaver that arrived ‘shave ready’ a month or so ago. After the first shave, I finished it on the UF side of my jasper stone with water, and the difference between the two shaves was notable. My relaxing three pass (WTG, ATG, XTG) mug shave this morning was to Debussy’s ‘Clair de Lune‘ ‘’. I then stropped the Feather FAS-10 in my Valet Auto Strop Model VC3 forty strokes. The dome shave was also a pleasure and left me this morning feeling very smooth, clean and velveteen.

    RAZOR: Manhattan Cutlery Sheffield 13/16 (Mug), Valet Auto Strop Model VC3 (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather FAS-10 Carbon Steel
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Viking Silvertip Badger
    CREAM: Lush Prince
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with Glyce Glycerin soap followed by Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Old Spice AS Splash.

    Monday's Shave

    Pre: Argan Oil Soap
    Brush: Wild West Brush Works 26mm Synbad
    Razor: Filarmonica 13 with Custom Scales by John June
    Soap: Saponificio Varesino Felce Aromatica
    Splash: Quorum
    Balm: Bart's Lavender Balm
    Scent: 401 E Amatrice

    This Razor came home from some work today , it has had new scales they are a smoky grey acrylic and see through , the wedge is done in Emerald coloured acrylic. The original scales had a warp in them that made them catch if you weren't careful. It now has a set scales that match how it shaves.
