    vostok.png diana_balsam.jpg Barber_Aftershave_Osage-Rub_LRG.jpg I'll get the thread off to an earlier start than usual because I'll be leaving the house very early in the morning. Ohhhhh, before I forget, we all know that every Monday is:

    Menthol Monday:

    Turkish Horsehair
    Super Speed/Shark day 6
    Queen Charlotte Soaps Vostok SC :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Diana Sport Menthol Balsam :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily::Animatedfrozensmily:
    Osage Rub AS Balsam :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Obsession for Men EDT

    We're having some really good and hot weather here in Montreal, so menthol, menthol, and more menthol is the order of the day. The Vostok cream is not for everyone - the menthol effect is so powerful that it gave my brother-in-law a lot of discomfort when he tried it. For me it's fabulous, but that's because I'm a menthol freak. The Diana balsam is about 20 times colder than 444, and I cannot seem to stay away from this Osage Rub which I recently bought! ;) :D

    Like you Jeff, I have a very early day. 4:30 AM comes too soon it seems.

    18 June Menthol Monday

    Busy day today, so I wanted to kick it off with the best I had to offer.
    TSD IcedSubZero Soap
    Simpons Berkley 46, face lather
    Gillette Milord, with Gillette 7O'Clock Super Platinum Blue
    TSD IcedSubZero Splash and Proraso ASB

    This was an extremely nice three pass BBS shave. I just relaxed, took my time, and it was an awesomely chilly and smooth shave.
    My daughter starts her new daycare this morning (wife is upset), and I am flying out to Chicage then heading over to Lake Geneva WI for a meeting.
    I got up early just to catch up, hope everyone has a great week.

    Result: A BBS (I think). Some neck hairs were stubborn. I think I got them all. Mid day will tell the real story.

    Nice, close shave. I picked this razor up on the "bay" for $15, real ivory scales and fine steel. It takes a very nice edge. I did get a piece of my earlobe but that's the way it goes, "live by the sword, die by the sword". Have a good day.

    Prep: Tepid Water Shower, Brush soaking in ice water.
    Razor: EJ DE89 head on iKon Handle
    Blade: Personna Super Platinuim
    Brush: 1950's Stanley Badger Hair Brush

    AS: Pinuad Clubam
    Post: Cold Water Rinse, Naturally Fresh Alum, Second Cold Water Rinse, Ice Cube Face Rub, Bath of Clubman.

    For the first time in 7 months I am out of shaving cream. I had ordered some product from TSD Store and thought that I would have enough KMF and Bigelow to last me until it arrived, but I guessed wrong. So for today shave and till it arrives, I am facing lathering with VDH only.

    I was able to build a nice lather, it actually felt good to work the brush that much into my whiskers. The shave itself was nothing more than what was expected with this combo. Three passes, some light buffing on the trouble spots under my jawline and neck, and a very close to BBS shave.

    Shave #2 with a vintage Marlin blade. It went nearly as well as shave #1, but I think I'd be pushing it for shave #3 in terms of sharpness.

    This was a especially freezing Menthol Monday,I dont know if it was the Vostok and scuttle combo, but wow it was more face numbing than usual.The Thayer's seemed to extend the freeze,I was going to use Alt-Innsbruck which is face numbing in it's own right.But nothing beats The Rub with some 444.Great BBS shave,great menthol blast,now I'm ready to chew bubble gum and kick butt,and I'm all outta chewing gum.

    Neither can my brother-in-law. We both have very tough beards, but my skin is sensitive like hell, and also I'm petrified to cut myself. The Super Speed is a a perfect razor for me. With it, I can shave fast if necessary without irritations or cuts. :)
