    2 passes. Face lather. Excellent shave.

I’m just under 450 straight razor shaves since July 2022. You would think that I’d have figured it out by now, but in the last two to three weeks I seem to have found another level. It’s a little like learning what xyzzy does in the Colossal Cave. Fascinating.

Monday, January 29, 2024: Haslinger Hétfö

It is Monday again, and I used my trusted Haslinger (with a widening ring of death). I have the impression that the TI is the straight razor that most vibes with me – smaller than the Koraat, and shinier than the Parker (yes, you are right: I am that superficial).

Schafmilch’s ring(ish) of death

Have a good evening!

I think you show good taste. Now this qualifies as superficial :)

Yes, still a thing. At least for me

  • Brush: Yaqi 26mm Synthetic
  • Razor: Karve CB SB D
  • Blade: Gillette Winner [2]
  • Lather: Spearhead - Sea Spice Lime - Soap
  • Post Shave: Spearhead - Sea Spice Lime - Aftershave

Good shave. Lime-tastic morning coffee with above average temperatures outside. This blade is not great in this razor I’ll likely swap it out next shave, it’s a bit harsh.

Mammoth × Goose

  • Brush: Zenith r/Wetshaving exclusive MOAR BOAR (31 mm × 57 mm bleached boar)
  • Razor: Mongoose Razors Alumigoose
  • Blade: Feather Professional
  • Lather: House of Mammoth Almond Leather
  • Aftershave: Declaration Grooming Fake Yellow Light
  • Fragrance: Chatillon Lux Gratiot League Square
  • Talc: Pinaud Clubman Finest Powder


My first try with u/wallygator88’s Alumigoose on loan (Thanks Wally! ☺️). I like the build quality of the goose a lot.



It was fairly straight forward to find the right angle, and the first shave with it was already a nice one. I’m looking forward to trying this razor some more during this week.

  • Razor: Mergress “Bling”
  • Blade: Lord Classic
  • Brush: Semogue TSN LE 2012
  • Pre-Shave: Proraso Pre Shave Cream
  • Lather: Brutalt Bra TSN LE / Norwegian Wood
  • Aftershave: Barber No3 Marmara
  • Additional Care: Alum Block


Another week, another shave. Both the brush and the lather are Limited Edition items made for the sadly defunct Shave Nook forum, and the Mergress was a gift from Phil who ran the Nook.


Cool stuff. I never spent much time at TSN and forgot that it shut down. Was that the one associated with a shaving store? Bullgoose, maybe? I’m just making stuff up at this point probably.


Yeah, BullGoose. Although Phil never pushed his store terrible hard at the 'Nook, and often offered pretty good deals.
