    Here’s yesterday and today’s shave with the Blackland Dart. It’s an excellently made razor that commands your respect. I found that using even less pressure than usual when using this razor is necessary to achieve a good shave. I would recommend this razor for those who like an aggressive razor. There’s a good amount of blade feel with this bad boy. A7EAAAB5-C06E-40B6-9107-B2E6680F5370.jpeg 629DF216-2352-4201-9452-E75845EE0EBD.jpeg

    I’m liking my Dart; it’s just taking a little getting used to.

    The Blackbird Ti is very light at 1.9 oz and the shave is super great. It is really fun using this razor.

    Christmas Season keeps going. I went with Cella. For me it is a Christmas scent, but for others it might not.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Cella
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (1)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (1)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    AS: Cella
    ASB: Captain's Choice 45th Parallel
    EdC: Polo Supreme Oud

    The lather was creamy and slick, as it should be. Just wonderful.

    We all know what Cella smells like. It smells like my mother's baking at this time of year. I hope everyone's Holiday Season is going great.

    Christmas Season, Day 3. Spicy Sunday for the win. Old Spice is another fragrance that reminds me of Christmas.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Stirling Spice
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (2)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (2)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    AS: Old Spice (US)
    ASB: Stirling Spice
    EdC: Old Spice (US)

    Just a rich and thick lather that is the signature of Stirling was in the bowl today. I couldn't get enough. I was actually contemplating a 4th and 5th pass.

    I hope everyone is keeping an eye out for fat men in red and white suites.

    Any BVBers (Blackland Vector Brotherhood)?
    I was one for a month, back in 2018.

    Even a BDBer for a couple of days, in 2019.

    Christmas Season, Day 4.

    Marzipan Shave Soap with Menthol Monday!

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: M. A. Space Soap Cow in Space
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (3)
    Brush: VdH Green Boar
    AS: AAFES Brisk
    ASB: Duke Cannon Ice Cold
    EdC: Polo Supreme Leather

    If you have never tried M. A. Space Soaps, I'd give it a whirl if you can get a hold of any. The owner, Mr. Robert Harding and his son make it in small batches in his house. His production has been down because he is working to help fight the CV-19 at his full time job. I think his company was one of the companies that helped make the current coming vaccines.

    Anyway, his soaps are all great. Be warned, he likes menthol. He made one called Ice Planet that is great for the summer months.

    Christmas Season, Day 5.

    Full Tabac for Tabac Tuesday!

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Tabac Original
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (4)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (4)
    Brush: VdH Black Boar
    AS: Tabac Original
    ASB: Tabac Original
    EdC: Tabac Original

    Kind of screwed up the lather for the first pass. Not enough soap, too much water. Remedied that quick, fast, and in a hurry. I'll just continue to overload like I usually do in the future.

    Besides the first pass misstep, fantastic shave. I couldn't be happier. Of course how can you not be happy with Tabac?
