    The ALUMI-TAR has arrived. I will be using it over the next three days and then sending it back to Tom for tweaking. Then it will be on to the World Tour.

    It weighed in at about 56g, and it feels really great.

    Tabac Shave Soap

    The ALUMI-TAR by Tom
    Gillette Silver Blue
    CWS
    Tabac ASB

    This is one great razor. I started on 1 and went through 3. It was an excellent shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... I did a video and it is being uploaded now. Will post when ready.

    I did the right side of my face on 4 and the left on 5. I did the second pass and touch ups on 6. All settings worked great. This is one fine razor. Tomorrow, I am going 6 all the way.

    Getting brave I see. You weren't sure about going up to 6 in the video yesterday. Glad to hear you are liking the shaves.

    Thursday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Vintage Life's Morning TOST
    Oscar11 synthetic
    The ALUMI-TAR by Tom
    Gillette Silver Blue
    CWS
    PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm

    The Vintage Life's Morning TOST Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Oscar11 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with The ALUMI-TAR by Tom razor with a Gillette Silver Blue DE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. I started out on the equivalent of 6, but halfway through, I took off a little skin on my chin. I was too confident. I backed it of to 4 and finished easily. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thanks, Tom, for the opportunity to try out these razors. There is plenty of range on the ALUMI-TAR for just about anyone I would think. I have the razors cleaned and packed for return home. It won't be long, Fellow TAR Fans.

    It looks pretty cool with the brass top on the black razor. Did you notice much difference with the weight?

    I forgot to mention the weight. No, I didn't notice any difference. It is only 12-13g difference. I guess I forgot because I didn't notice anything. Great shaver though.

    Ok. I modified the brass. It is now really close to the Alumi TAR. When I get home I will paint the alignment mark and get it out tonight.

    There were 2 bent teeth on the brass that is all good now also.
