    Pushbutton again today. Traditional Fat Friday software setup worked well again. Nice, smooth shave. Tomorrow or Sunday (I generally don't shave on one of the weekend days) I'll go back to one of my injectors, but don't know which one yet.

    Have a great day!

    The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #144 finest badger brush. I did two passes the Schick C3 and Ted Pella Injector blade, I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with T.N. Dickinson's WH and then Pinaud Vegetal AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I can't help but feel that the madness aspect is getting lost here. Holding up my end. Permasharp blade in the Shovelhead.

    Not from the spectator point of view! What blade is in that Shovelhead?

    WTG, WTG, touch-up

    Not a good shave today. Two passes with touch-up and only at a decent CCS. Not sure if the blade was bad or what. I haven't had much success with a PAL Adjustable. I'll give it some more tries down the road but the next shave will be with something dependable as this one just wasn't the best.

    Have a great weekend!

    First because I can. Second it actually gives a great close shave. I've been disappointed with the number of good shaves I've been getting with Gem blades. This expands my options .

    The Reef Point Dragon's Blood was easily whipped into a rich slick lather. Two Passes and with touch ups let me catch the baby. Finished off with a splash of witch hazel followed by Floid Blue. I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

    Personna injector today. Smooth, easy, and mild but quite effective. I really enjoyed the shave this morning with it and the Fine Platinum products. Also used the JR #60 brush. That brush barely needs any water to whip up exceptional lather. Nice shave in the end.

    Have a great day!
