Week 1 Day 7

I was thinking that pretty much any Soap can be a daily Soap. But Cella and few others are the one, are elected by goodness.

The fatty rich lather, lubrication and scent are simply unbelievable for a soap of this price. I think it’s simply unbeatable.
Fatip as Steve says requires respect and dedication. It’s not perfect it’s not the best. Sometimes it’s a miss or a hit. But it’s a lovely razor, well hand made, for the job to be done. It can’t be easy at the first stages but you need to know it.

Its dangerous character especially for the ATG it’s coped with an exceptional handling IMO.

It needs to be handled gently: no pressure, consistent angle (the head won’t help so rely on your wrist) and follow your face map first. Couple with a good Soap lathered on your face, done!

Can you find a better razor for that price of a Fatip on the old world? Probably not.

The Omega brush is the elegant Italian dresses brother of the Mythical Omega 48. What can I say more on a mythic brush? Nothing more than… Use it!
Bolzano Blades are incredible! To me they last minimum 7 shaves. They reach the optimum after 2/3 shaves, after then they become better!!
 Today I had the the best shave so far: again they are going to be not close as the first day but they are simply good. I don’t see any reason to toss the blade today but I will do it. Next shave off new blade!
