    AHH Sunday morning shave.

    Star DE
    VDH Blade
    Burma Shave soap
    Burma Shave Boar
    WH
    THE VEG

    This is another Military style set I have. Bakelight handle and base plate. Very nice shaving razor. THE VEG finished things off on a very hi note. Another outstanding shave to start the day. Headed to the range soon to kill some paper with a couple of .22s.

    Dove Men Face Wash
    TSD Lime
    Jayaruh #157
    Dorco PL 602
    Dorco Stainless
    CWR, Asma Alum Block
    Thayer's Lemon WH

    The TSD Lime Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #157 synthetic brush. I did two passes the Dorco PL 602 razor and Dorco Stainless blade, and I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    As expected, the Lab Blue paired very well with the Wikinson Sticky.

    This is my rig for next week (shave weeks start on Monday for me).

    I was in a hurry this morning, so I used my VDH DE instead of an SR. I loaded in an Astra blade and was rewarded with a close comfortable shave. I don't use this razor enough and it deserves better than to collect dust in the back of the closet. The VDH was my first DE and is what got me started on wet shaving.

    ABG!

    No Idea, its the only Cooper I have used. Is the handle on the Stereo hollow ? This baby is brass and fairly heavy.

    Yes, the handle is hollow. I was thinking some tungsten putty could be put to use there

    Well, I regret to say I have fallen off the non-Gillette wagon. I shaved with two old German 4 pc travel razors, with my Fatip Grande, and for the last 9 days with my Schick Krona. Then this morning I absentmindedly pulled out my Canadian pre-War Gillette fathandled Tech with the triangle slots...

    The real problem is, I got such a good shave from it today that I think I will continue using it as my test razor as I continue trying my different creams and soaps. So it looks like it will be an Anything But Gillette DE two weeks instead of month for me.

    It's been fun though, and I will continue watching your different razors and may drop back in with the Fatip or my Rockwell 6s now and then.
