    Close Shave Tabacstag
    Another good shave with the MMOC. I did get two weepers and my face was a little red for a short time, but no burning sensation. Tabac never fails to provide optimal lather, and I wrapped it up with PAA Gondolier balm.

    I really dig the Senator. Shaves every bit as close as my Aristocrats! Just need to get used to a slender handle...​

    Sunday's shave and back to the Bulldog. Paired up Viking Soap's Citron with Ginger's Garden's Luna for a citrusy mentholated blast of goodness! Scored a $1.00 flea market found shave bowl too! It was a miso bowl in a previous life and I'm tickled to have found it!

    This ABC set was the first full interior restoration that I ever did. It is also the first complete true ABC set I ever owned. If you had seen it when I first got it, you would have thought I am crazy for buying it. It had lain in a shed in Minnesota for what I suspect was 70 years or so. Under something that kept it wet the entire time. The inner trays had to be built from scratch. The hinges were nearly seized. The whole set was completely black from filth and corrosion.
    I took my time and rebuilt the trays from cardboard and balsa wood. I soaked the case in dawn/hot water for several days, then polished it all with mothers mag and aluminum polish. Once I did all that, I lined the new trays with velvet and put together the set you see now. It was a very satisfying project. And it shaves great too! It has the stamped brass/wide toothed baseplate, which makes it a super efficient shaver. Today's shave scored out as a two pass BBS! Thanks for letting me share. Have s great day all!

    Thank you very much Clint. It just took a little time, and effort. I'm pretty proud of it.
