    Looking forward to seeing the new razor. I’m certainly a BMS 2021 member in good standing.

    We all own razors, either safety or straight, that while not particularly valuable, hold a special meaning for us. This little Lord 5/8 was selected by me for that very reason. It's the first razor whose edge I set from bevel tho finish. In those days I set the bevel on a Naniwa Chosera 1k and finished it with a series of successively diluted slurries on my jasper stone. I now finish on the Naniwa 12k with final polish on the extra fine side of the jasper with just water and no slurry. This little razor holds a great edge and delivered a velveteen smooth three pass mug shave. The Supply V2 with a fresh twinjector blade I loaded in the three dot plate did the same for my dome in two pleasant ATG passes. One more great shave in the books leaving me refreshed, clean, velveteen and ready to face the day!

    RAZOR: Lord 5/8 (Mug), SS Supply V2 (Dome)
    BLADE: Schick Injector II
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Omega Pro48 Boar
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac. Finished with Cremo Cooling Post Shave Balm.

    SMN Tobacco Toscano Aftershave

    Happy Friday Everyone. I decided to forego the Fat Friday shave in favor of using my recent Santa Maria Novella purchases. Following @Primotenore advise, I removed a small amount of the Crema da Barba and smushed it into the bottom of my shave bowl. The big Zenith boar did a wonderful job whipping up a huge bowl of rich slick lather. The scent was more menthol than tobacco. Perhaps that will change with more use. Three passes and touch ups with the Henson left me just short of catching the baby. A 4th pass on my lower neck proved just the ticket to apprehend the little guy. A splash of SMN Tobacco Toscano aftershave left me smelling and feeling great. The aftershave opens up with tobacco leaf and vanilla over a base of amber and woody notes. This is a very nice scent. I hope everyone has a great Friday.
