    Thank you Terry. The knot on this brush is so dense it takes forever to dry. I use a plisson type synthetic know when I travel.

    I will give them a go. Interesting to see how the Feather performs in the Russian rocket.

    Last week went into a station, at the counter to pay for gas, I use cash. The older lady at the counter asks if I had one of their rewards card. I said no, she said that makes me want to cry, jokingly of course. I said, Now lets have none of that snowflake stuff here, our generation have to have some sort of standards.
    The young lady behind her almost fell down laughing. I was being serious.
    Well.....

    I grew up one hill over from Green Mountain. Ardmore straddles the TN line about an hour drive north.

    And BBQ....

    Keith,

    Our chats over cigars in STL was both a comfort and a pep talk for me. You and I had more fun doing nothing than I've ever had in my life. Thanks for being a true friend.

    Bill, Satsuma truly is a wonderful scent that I would use it all year round despite what some might say that it is a summer scent. Frankly, I would use all my soaps all year round, including my Proraso Green.

    Rick,

    Can't tell you how many times I've run as fast as I can, only to be unable to outrun myself! Thanks for all the Slack you've picked up for me as a mod. You're a champ!

    As I was inserting this Feather blade into my obscenely wide gapped Russian razor, I was thinking to myself " Are you nuts?". But then again this isn't the first time that thought crossed my mind before a shave .
    I chose the BoS as it would be quite fitting considering this combination but am happy to report the results were excellent and no blood loss today. The feedback off the blade was so loud the neighbors dog stopped barking when he heard it .
    Thanks to @Terry for suggesting I try this blade/razor combo.

    Good afternoon gents.
    I endeavored to cleanup my act and space. This month, or whats left, adjustable arko (blah!). Well ok, 20190825_135152_resized.jpg these are my adjustables, unless I forgot some. Of this bunch, I'm going with my birthyear/quarter slim. Mostly because I get mostly just ok shaves from it, and we should all strive to get better, right?
    Three passes at my newly cleaned up station was nice. Slim made good, maybe knowing that this is my razor for a while, inspired concentration. My love for synthetic has dramatically increased, I'm sure sure this one is of genetic origins. It whipped up some nice suds though.
    I finished with iced atomized Lavender florida Water, a nice finishing scent to the industrial lemon of arko.
    I'm really digging the empty space,
    Hope y'all did as well, or better. 20190825_135108_resized.jpg
