Thank you, Ken!
Thank you, Dan! This time of year is killer for me. It stays busy until thevstufents let out in about a month. But, then there’s some breathing time!
Yes sir, great minds!
I shaved early this morning with Jeeves Bay Rum, Personna injector, Stirling Kong synthetic, and Speick to finish. Nice shave overall. No time for a pic or formal report. Just good and solid.
Easy flight down to Orlando and I’m off to the races. I’ll chime in when I can the next few days.
Great shaves and pictured and reports, everyone!
Zen shaves happen. Another name for getting a BBS without trying. It's not a result you actively seek, more of a destination arrived at without conscious effort.
That 1/4 turn upping the aggression tip was an official Gillette suggestion for a 1937 Sheraton. Not suggested or endorsed when using adjustables.

Great looking photo Jason. I would guess someone had to mover the TTO knob.
Love the brush Amigo.
Most people seem to love the Karve Razors. They sure look great. Wonderful photo as well Jim.
The colors look good to me. Great photo and report Andrew.
Have a great time Perry.
Thank you Guys. I am cheating a little this week. I had 3 pictures that I had taken, edited and saved but never used. Since I got back in late Monday and had a busy start to the week, the pictures came in handy.
It's amazing what a good product does to help achieve a good shave.
Wow. Beautiful lineup and photo.
Thank you Clint!
My super speed did this on the last week of my 30 day rule. Gouged my head pretty good . Wasnt backed off much either .
I like to think of myself as a renaissance man, Jason.
APRIL Adjustable Focus
Proraso Green Preshave
Palmolive Shave Stick
Semogue 1305 boar brush
Suribachi & cool water
'62 Gillette H2 Slim on 9
Feather Hi-Stainless blade
Alum, Osage Rub, Citrus Musk
I picked up this less than perfect Slim last week. Gave it the standard hot water/ Dawn cleaning but it didn't shine up. Flea bites and lost nickel put it firmly in the User category. Prepped my shave with known products in a new combination. Mentholated preshave felt good, and the Palmolive stick mushed into a tub delivered an acceptable surface to test a 56 year old new-to-me blade holder. Popped in a fresh Feather HS and got my 3.5 passes done in short order. Knocked the bump off a chin scab, and tried a Fat Boy maneuver on my jawline that left a little scraped skin. "Except for the blood, it was a great shave!" Alum confirmed the two errors but otherwise all good. A cooling splash of O-Rub carefully applied to face & scalp, followed by Pinaud EDC.
Good Shaves Y'all!
Love the color coordination

Rick do you have both the Citrus Musk and the Lime Sec ? If so can you compare ?
Another lovely 3 pass shave with the Merkur 34c. I must say... Big love for the Palmolive shave stick mashed into a mug!

Very nice looking razor, Ken. Congrats on a good shave today!
Those are words we should always remember in every aspect in life.
Excellent photo, Clint!
Sorry about the weepers, Jason. Great photo, however!
Another cool pic, Mark!
"Bolt head razor?" That sounds interesting....
Very nice set-up, Andrew! The razor looks in great shape.... was it NOS?
