Shaver: Muhle R41
Blade: Feather (1)
Soap: Strike Gold Shave Hoover
Brush: AMACK 22mm
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Skin Bracer aftershave and Van Yulay Smokey Mountain Whiskey beard oil.

Today's shave is continuing with the R41 and I am convinced that it is possible to use this razor as my daily driver. Yes , this razor may make you give some thought to your preshave routine and post shave routine. As it goes for during the shave ... the pamphlet mentions gentle pressure and I believe that will be one of the keys to using this razor on a daily basis. This razor is a very efficient razor so ending up with a near baby smooth face has been almost effortless for me and I have been able to do this without irritation. My preshave routine is a hot towel applied to my face as well as the bloom water. I will say this has been the first razor that made me think seriously about a preshave oil or soap over concerns of my neck getting irritated but so far my neck is doing fine. Post shave routine ... if I was to use this as my daily driver I may consider using a balm with the aftershave. Well my time is up .. stay safe and smooth shaves.
