Shave of the day, 25th October 2020, A WTF Vintage Barbershop Shave

  • Pre-Shave : Shower, PAA Cube
  • Bowl : $2 Stainless Steel mixing bowl
  • Brush : Oumo 24mm ACE SHD Dual Band Manchurian Badger
  • Soap : WTF Vintage Barbershop (with menthol)
  • Razor : OREN-Occam Razor Enhanced Nano-3Dot Plate w/Feather Pro Blades
  • Post Shave : WTF Vintage Barbershop Aftershave (with menthol)
  • Others : Menthol in salt grinder

It’s been a while since I had this one back in rotation, and man do I miss it!
Its scent of cloves, myrrh, lavender, patchouli, and musk is pretty unique and very aromatic.
Though I understand that some people are more sensitive to the cloves and may experience discomfort.
Sample before you buy a full tub.
The light menthol is just icing on the cake.
I did add more menthol though. It was a goddamn warm and humid tropical night.

Lathering up a WTF soap is always fun, and easy, though I’d recommend using a little more soap (about a thumb nail worth, generates about 4 to 6 pass worth of lather) and always start with less water to get that thick creamy yogurt foam, you can always slowly add in more, than have too much water at the start.
Lather Porn included.

And today I went with the OREN, can’t call it a WTF shave without using the OREN.
It still gives one of the most comfortable shaves, even with a 3 DOT plate. The best I can describe how this razor feels is “single blade Cartridge Razor”, as the Floating Blade design of the razor lends to a “soft” shave.

Make no mistake though, them Feather Blades will bite if you disrespect the blade but for the most part, while you do need to use a little more pressure than with a regular DE / SE razor, it’s one of those razors that usually won’t bite unless you aren’t paying attention, press down too hard because you aren’t feeling the blade or just do something weird like moving the razor sideways while shaving.

Very easy, comfortable, true glass “I keep touching myself” BBS shave.

Stay safe
Stay sane
Stay happy
