Danny, thanks for the Clubman shot. Looks nice!
ordered some vinyls a few days ago.
Over and Over has always been a favorite of mine.
Y'know, speakina the carbon footprint of a den-it's getting awfully tough to fit things in mine. My "backup" den is in the bedroom.With the arrival of my Royal Copenhagen yesterday, I decided to rotate RC with Aqua Velva for the Central Texas Soaps' Down By The River, this summer and fall. Gives the den some space.
It's my favorite song from Vinton.
Thank you Dave.
Tabac plus Clubman! Alabama awesome.
Wow! You picked all the pungent products for 1 shave. Great looking photo at least.
I always thought his name was pronounced "LEE-KNOW".
Beautiful shave and photo Joseph. The brush is just gorgeous.
If you cannot run with the big dogs.....stay on the porch.
Thanks Clint and have a great day.
Mayhem always "staaaaaats"(Mass. accent)with my birthday on the 1st.

Great day for a good shave with my Genco 35 5/8 and Colonial Silversmith. I’d forgotten what a great edge this little Genco has. Three slow careful mug passes put the baby to bed. This was my second straight razor. The jasper stone edge has never let me down. My dome shave featured one of only two modern artisan safety razors in my regular rotation, the other being the Christopher Bradley Karve razor I shaved with yesterday. The Silversmith works well with just about any DE blade. The Polsilver I loaded this morning easily cleared away my noggin stubble and left me refreshed, clean, and velveteen smooth.
RAZOR: Genco 35 5/8 (Mug), Colonial Silversmith (Dome)
BLADE: Polsilver DE
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: MrEE LE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot #007
SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
By "pungent" would it be safe to presume you weren't talkinabout Clubman????????
Divine shave all the way around, Barry. Take care
Terrific Tabac Thursday shave, Keith. Take care.
Tabac is good stuff.....appreciated around the world from Alabama to South Korea.
Getting close. Floors are done. Trim is done. Just some finishing touches and a little more painting and the furniture can be moved back into place. I'll be so happy when this is completely done.

Good morning guys!
Shavette shave #260
Personna Hairshaper Blade (9)
Semogue OC Super Badger Brush
Stirling Coconut Lime SS and AS
Dickinson's WH and Nivea ASB
Whiskers: 38 hrs
I am liking this Semogue brush a whole lot more. It is still a lather hog, but I overcome it by overloading the brush. It really performs well. The lather was slick and creamy as expected with any Stirling soap.
A two pass shave without any drama produced a BBS shave. Didn't need to do any pickups. I am surprised because this blade presently has 9 shaves on it. Finished the shave in my usual way. Have a nice day guys!
