Whiskers: 25 hrs
I still looked presentable, but I decided to shave tonight because I am 99% sure I will be in school tomorrow. I basically dryloaded (very little water on tips) the Cella because there really isn't any room to prevent the lather to go over the lip of the container. It took my longer than usual to lather because I was adding water in small doses, but I did get a great lather. I love the scent, but it doesn't linger while face-lathering. It's the only negative thing that I can say about Cella. However, it is very slick and provides great protection. I only needed a full pass and a half, instead of two and a half passes because my beard stubble was slightly over 24 hrs. Did not get any boo-boos and irritation was non-existent. I would say it was a BBS shave, but would not pass the cotton ball test. So some would say it really is a near BBS or a BBS- grade. It's my shave so I will grade it my way. Lol! Suffice it to say it was a very close, smooth and comfortable shave. Splashed my Old Spice afterhave to end this very satisfying shave. Have a nice evening guys.
That's a hard one Danny. They both have colors that belong on Christmas ornaments. Tough choice.
Great setup Joe. Nice results. Cella rocks.
Or maybe we just plan pranks really far in advance.

Awesomeness Joe! Great shave and report. Number 290 is purdy.
True and I still have not decided.
Thanks Dave ! I'll probably be less nervous when I make another MAYhem vid next year, depending upon how many "razors" I build this time .
Thanks Blair. I sometimes don't know what I am going to use until the very last second. I am very happy with Cella.
Thanks Danny! I am very fortunate to have 2 of JR's brushes.
Cool hardware and great shave Evan.
Beautiful shave and wonderful looking brush Jason.
True, but I will pass on the mask.
Excellent vintage shave Cliff
Awesome shave Blair. The scales on the DD are amazing.
I will be reaching out to him. I have another razor for him to work on as well. The only thing preventing me from sending it to him is my PayPal account has been locked until April due to that POS that hacked my account in October.
Sounds like a nice combo, Andrew. Is that the RR ‘super tallow’ formula, the lanolin base or the vegan?
Morning shave, evening post? We’ve all had days like that, Joe. Hope the weather isn’t too bad.
Congrats on the Hawks, Danny. Some fine shavers. Are you doctoring them?
Small tubs with no extra room are one of my biggest peeves, Joe. Transplant it, perhaps?
I am ok with the Cella tub. I just have to continue dry loading until the soap is at such a lower level that I can load in my usual way. Good night Jason.
Kent, Blue Beard's Revenge, & MWF are all exactly the same soap. The only difference is the packaging for selling purposes. MWF is the most well-known for its packaging and ceramic bowl. KENT and BBR just have a "no frills' cover. Kent you'll find costs less too.
