    I received my Royal Copenhagen A.S. from The Perfume Spot yesterday. Haven't yet used it, but upon first few sniffs, it could be Aqua Velva on steroids. So happy to get this classic! I plan to rotate it with the aforementioned Aqua Velva as I use my Central Texas Soaps' Down By The River this summer and fall.(Course I might include late Spring to that, but there isn't much Spring here...seems we go right into summer.

    Thursday's Shave

    RazoRock Lupo 72
    Voskhod (1)
    Omega 49 Boar
    Soap Commander Endurance Shaving Soap
    T.N. Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Soap Commander Endurance Aftershave

    Day three with the Lupo 72 and I paired it with a Voskhod blade this morning. I'll continue to rotate different blade brands after two uses, just as I had done with the Game Changer, to see if there are any blades that just don't pair well with the Lupo.

    After two passes today, I ended with a very comfortable and efficient shave with no irritation or mishaps.

    Joe, I just wanted to send condolences to you and your family re the passing of your Dad. I hope you can hook up with a Bereavement Support Group, if that is something you believe you need, that is.

    Razor: Wade & Butcher 13/16 “Bow”
    Brush: Silver Blue
    Lather: Van Yulay SotG British Fern
    Aftershave: B & M Reserve Fern
    Additional Care:
    Stirling Alum Block
    Thayer's Witch Hazel - Aloe Vera
    Stirling Unscented Glacial Balm
    Today I decided to finish up the sample of the Van Yulay sample, British Fern. I am not sure what an actual British fern may smell like but this soap has a nice subtle scent.

    My usual three pass shave delivered the desired results, smooth and comfortable. I am off today as I had to reschedule my 2nd COVID vaccine appoint due to the situation involving my father. I had been on the fence regarding getting g the vaccine, I am healthy without any metabolic issues. Give. That I just viewed what this virus did to my father, who was a very healthy 85, I am glad I did.
    Hopefully I will not have any of the known side effects following the 2nd dose.

    Have a great day gentlemen.

    Thanks Clint. I watched some videos last night and the razor is getting some great comments. A few are even saying it is a tad smoother than the Gamechanger. We shall see. The head has a lot of similarities with the Gamechanger and a WR1 Wolfman.
