    Good afternoon.

    Mühle R102
    Assured for Men DE Blade (2,3)
    MrEE Tuxedo Brush
    PAA K Rex Emporium SS
    Pinaud-Clubman Classic AS
    Stirling Alum Block
    Modessa Witch Hazel
    Beard Growth: 24 hrs
    Dome Turf: 4 days

    I decided to go with the R102 because I needed an aggressive razor to take down my 4 day growth on my head and of course a face shave was also warranted. The PAA K Rex Emporium soap was chosen because it's super slick; smells nice and very easy to lather. Here's my lather:

    20231129_162433.jpg

    Did 3 passes all around for an error-free BBS shave without incidents. That's kind of a miracle because this blade was not smooth going on my dome. It's a Dollar Tree blade and its quality is on the low side. This is the last blade and it will never grace my den because you have to buy a Dollar Tree razor to get the blades and frankly, that's not happening. These blades were fine in the Dollar Tree razor, but I wouldn't use them in aggressive razors. Of course, I like challenges and did it anyway. Lol! I think that I may just have one more shave with this blade and it will be pitched.

    The alum feedback was minimal on the neck and dome. Splashed on the witch hazel to soothe my skin and ended with the Pinaud-Clubman Classic aftershave. Take care.

    Still working the lather bowl game and getting more consistent. Just have to keep practicing I suppose.

    Prep: Shower and face wash
    Lather: Arko
    Brush: RazoRock Plissoft
    Razor: Gillette Toggle
    Blade: Personna (2)
    Post: Alum and CC Bay Rum

    2 passes on the neck and touch up on the upper cheeks and I was good to go.

    One of my 6th grade students told me that I need to "fade" my beard. I'll have research that!

    Nice setup and shave Troy. Your lather is a good lather if you get a nice shave from it.

    Sorry to hear you are sick Joe. Travel is such a PITA that way.
    Wonderful looking shave though!. How do you like that Atomic Pumpkin? I’m always looking for Bay Rum options….

    Great, so testing DE blades is perfect. I think I’m going to stick with one DE razor for the entire month as well. That will be in the spirit of the focus theme, and allow me a good base to test blades.

    Looks like a great Arko shave…

    I want to do some more bowl lathering as well. I used to be quite good at it, but time is always an issue for me on weekday mornings…

    Fine first outing with the Dovo, Joe. It gets better the more you use it. Hope you get well quickly.
