- Soap : Van Yulay Smoking Hot Pineapple
- Razor : Tatara Masamune Base + Nodachi Cap w/Feather Blade
- Post Shave : Floid Black
Well, with Vetiver and Vodka thrown into the mix as well.
Scent is a very dark smoky pineapple with that hint of booze, the vetiver note in this soap is more woody, less hemp / grass so its almost like birch.
Lather’s up well, though loading heavier helps.
Really loving the hard puck version, which generates a lather that has a more body than the croap version.
Went with Zero Zero Masamune with a Feather.
Now we’re talking!
Smooth with very little resistance from the growth mowed down.
Easy, damn comfortable, zero irritation true glass BBS shave.
I am not sure if my bristles has toughened, but once, where the Personna Platinum blades were good, and I rated them just below the Feathers, its now like these very same blades dropped two or so notches in shearing power compared to the Feathers. Goes to show, how blades can change in feel due to changes from your own body.
Finished up with Floid Black for more of that Pineapple and I smell fruity. In a good way.
