    Excellent start to the month.

    Great shave Perry. I would say you are set with American Blend.


    Sounds like a great plan for the month.

    Happy Friday everyone. The little Duke 3 effortlessly whipped up AOS Sandalwood into a rich slick lather. Three passes and touch ups ended with the baby just escaping. My lower right neck as usual was my nemesis. The result is more than acceptable. A splash of the Fine Santal and I am ready for the day. I hope everyone has a great Friday.

    That theory falls apart when you consider @BaylorGator. ;)

    Awesome shave this AM, fellas! GD Ambrisia is on my hit list, so I picked up an Everready handle restored with a Maggard badger and went to town on the tub. Picked up what I thought was the Damascus, but realized a few strokes in that it was the Hart Steel that was previously in @Keithmax’s den. One of my favorites, by the way. So off I go. 90% BBS with a couple of DFS patches on my neck. I’m experimenting with different angles of strokes in order to try and get as close to a true E-W,W-E stroke that is required for a BBS on my neck. Closing in on what works for me... Progress towards the unreachable goal of perfection...

    As I recall Joseph @Primotenore has half a dozen big bottles of Floid Blue kicking around, so I'm sure he can relate.

    A fine Focus. Glad you joined The 30 Day Crew!

    I've not tried those - Ice Tempered? They have been given less than complementary reviews by folks more knowledgeable than me. Neal @NCoxSTL might have an opinion...

    I believe you're correct. And a Floid Blue bottle is easily triple the size of a Fine bottle, if not more. Ah, I feel better already!
