    Thanks, Joe! I’m looking forward to hearing and possibly seeing you wield your new whisker cleaver! Regardless, Kravchenko apparently builds one heck of a razor! I know you’ll enjoy yours! :)

    April Focus
    XPEC~~Simpson CH2 Synthetic~~Fatip Lo Storto Originale/Gillette Spoiler~~Creed Green Irish Tweed
    For the final shave of April, I finished with the Fatip/Gillette combination.

    Binned the blade, even though I could have eked out another few shaves with it.
    New (to me) shave cream. I know I said I was ridding my den of creams, and except for the SMN, I have.
    Saw a buddy of mine on another forum was selling this almost-full tub of XPEC original for 1/2 retail,
    when you can find it. It has been sold out for a long time. Having never tried the brand,
    I pulled the trigger.
    "The Original Scent is a masculine blend of wild thyme, lemon, tuberose, fennel, pepper, ginger, cedar wood, and oak musk"
    I was very pleased with this product. Excellent slickness; superior protection and
    The scent is stunning. It reminds me of something, that I have yet to identify.
    Results of the shave were terrific.
    Finished with one of Creed's best creations:

    Thanks, gentlemen!
    I'll probably start May trying to finish off the Astra Planeta. Not sure where I'll go from there. I may focus on another blade that I found uncomfortable in the past, Bolzano.

    Actually, you read my mind. I had a nice long entry post into the month, and just near the end most of it got cut off due to something I did on with the "keyboard". I had declared I would do just as you said as a "focus". I'll get that going beginning tomorrow-thanks.

    A great shave and great juice will have that effect. :D

    Thanks, Jason.

    Awesome shave and I'll be praying that the doctors can help you out. Take care, John.

    Sorry the razor was not where it needs to be but I know you will get it there. Still a beautiful shave. If you don't mind please put in a large sauna. The 30DC will bring the cartel jet over and visit for a while when it is finished up. :D

    Take care, Keith.

    Great shave even with the slight blood loss, Joe. Take care.

    The retirement choo choo is still chugging.

    Take care, Dave.
