It can’t be that smooth, can it?

  • Prep: Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements – Cube 2.0 Scentless – Pre-shave
  • Brush: The Stray Whisker – 452/24 Synthetic
  • Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89
  • Blade: Parker Premium Platinum (2)
  • Lather: Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements – Clubguy – Soap
  • Post Shave: Alum Block
  • Post Shave: Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol Refresh Pre-Shave Cream

An absolutely amazing shave this evening. After starting with a hot, hot shower and the Unscented Cube 2.0 initially as a facewash, and then a pre-shave application against the grain, I moved on to create a smooth, creamy lather from the Clubguy soap.

In three passes, with a lovely face lather between each pass, the result is an ultra BBS shave. I’m not sure I have ever achieved a shave that smooth before. I feel it is a combination of the pre-shave wash, shave soap and the multiple uses of the Parker blade.
