    I will be using Route 66 Twisted Tweed for the first part of the month in an effort to finish off the tub. The scent to me is of a light green fougere which I find very pleasing. Route 66 soaps in general are very easy to lather and tolerant of various amounts of water. So as expected the CH2 Synthetic easily whipped up the Twisted Tweed into a wonderful rich slick lather. Three passes and touch ups with the Timeless OC left me with a smooth and close shave. I finished up the shave with a splash of Myrsol F/Extra. I hope everyone has a fantastic New Year's Day.

    After being laid up in bed for almost two days now, I just had to shave the growth off. Used my trusty Bostonian and Voskhod blade for a great three pass BBS shave.

    I recently got this Acevivi which is a dual-c0mb razor. It has open comb on one side and closed bar on the other.

    Good morning folks, here's my OC SOTD for today-

    Personna lab blue blade.
    Simpsons Duke 2 pure badger brush.
    RazoRock XXX shave soap.
    Nivea post shave balm.
    Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve as splash.
    4711 cologne.

    This was one of those shaves that I was lucky to finish. After a few strokes of the razor the hot water I was using caused a little expansion in the crack it has on the handle, and the the razor head and threaded tip popped off in mid stroke. Needless to say I got a little bloody. Then I put it all back together to finish the shave, and it slipped around on my face twice more. The darn thing got me three different times. But I'm ok. No major damage. It's not like I'm one of the worlds "Beautiful people ". I still got a DFS out of this shave, so I'm happy. I'll fix it later. Have a great day everyone!
