Thank you Sir! The shave was great too.
That Barbasol! Can that still be purchased or is it discontinued?
Thank you sir. Sadly, I don't get more than three or four good shaves from the Fhs-10. And I find it harsh and not all that efficient. I need to try the Feather carbon steel version or maybe even a de-spined Gem.
No need to waste money on the feather carbon steel. Complete garbage. If you want to try one anyway let me know. I think I have some laying around.
The despined Gem rocks. I have several videos using them.
I think the Musk is gone. I have not seen it in awhile. It is close to AV mist but to me better smelling.

My second use of this soap, lathered up on the bar and got a nice enough lather. The problem is that it quickly dissipates during a Shave, so both the Brush And Face need constant refreshing. Rather a shame as the scent is long lasting and the lather does seem to facilitate a good Shave.
I'M breaking this post back out... Ive moved and I had to pack all my shaving stuff... I'M moving internationally so I really had to downsize.. Everything, not just shave stuff.
Long story short, unpacking I pulled this out and wanted a stroll down memory lane. Boom! This really is one of the all time BEST shavers! I've used it every day for the past 3 weeks.
Thank you again @Karl G!! This is my Highlander Razor, if there could be only one.
Thank you, Gary. I was uninspired with the photo, but the shave was awesome. Gatlinburg doesn't get much press, but this fragrance rivals Declaration Grooming's "Darkfall" as a quintessential Southern US autumn fragrance. Highly recommended.
Awesome setup! I've never seen that aftershave before.
Have to agree!

Travel and anniversary shave. Have a great day!
It had you written all over it from the day I got it - which is probably why I never used it and kept it in it’s NOS condition Sometimes you get what you deserve
Well thank you!! Not all do. Lmao
I am not sure when they stopped making it. It’s a shame they did though.
Moved did you say?
