Shave of the day 11th July

Pre-shave: Pure glycerine soap
Lather: RazoRock XXX
Brush: Turkish No7 horse hair
Razors: Merkur 25C open comb with a “Treet Platinum” blade, Racer Safety Razor with a “Racer Super Stainless” blade
Post-shave: Cold water rinse, alum block and Krampert’s Finest Experimental Menthol

On a whim tried a cold water shave today. Used a block of what was intended as a melt-and-pour from the local hobby store for the face wash, built up a good lather from the RozoRock and went to town. The cheap Racer razor keeps impressing me. Cold water rinse and Krampert’s Menthol was a cooling end to a damn fine cool shave. Worth doing again on a summer day!
