    TUESDAY'S SHAVE
    20170913_113938.jpg

    Prep: pre shave soap mix
    Razor: Wilkinson Sword Classic
    Blade: Pol-Silver
    Brush: Razorock BC Plissoft
    Soap: WTF 1k
    Post: Mickey Lee Kraken Milk


    2 pass shave yesterday afternoon. Decided to melt the pre shave soap scraps i had left and added some coconut oil,caster oil, shea butter and menthol crystals. The result was a big tub/puck that is super slick and has a nice menthol punch. To be honest I was a bit dissapointed with the scent of this soap, it is very light (about 3 or 4/10) but the performance of this WTF soap is excellent. Did get a few nicks and the blade was dragging a bit which is a bit surprising since there are not many shaves with this blade. Finished off with Kraken milk, what a refreshing A/S I wish Mickey Lee would bring the milks back because this is some very moisturizing stuff.


    WEDNESDAY'S SHAVE
    20170913_113800.jpg

    Prep: pre shave soap mix
    Razor: Icon X3, Maggard MRG handle

    Blade: GSB (1st shave)
    Brush: Razorock BC Plissoft
    Soap: T&S Himalaya
    Post: T&S Himalaya



    3 pass smooth shave this afternoon. Have grown to really like the scent of Himalaya, was not a big fan at first. Excellent lather quality that held a lot of water. The Icon X3 was mild but cut thru the stubble with no problem. Very happy with today's shave results and finished up with the matching aftershave. Hope everyone had a great shave!

    Micro_One_Pacific_ShaveCream_AVMusk.jpg
    Nice, close, quick 3-pass BBs shave.
    Bowl lathered the Pacific. In spit of the great, rich lather it produces, I always seem to feel that bowl lathering takes too much time. The Pacific is a very refreshing cream with good menthol feel.

    ParkerSR1_Marvy923_Erasmic_CARTOON.jpg
    Good 2-Pass BBS shave.
    Still developing my technique with the shave stick. Lather was good, but not exceptional. Need more practice.
    I'll figure it out.

    Clubman Vanilla has a unique scent for me- best described as lacking any warmth.
    It is somehow mildly chemical or artificial to my nose.
    I warmed it up with a final splash of Master Bay Rum. AH! THAT's BETTER.
