Fantastic comparison post, Blair! Glad you enjoyed the trial.
Excellent shave Jason. How is the scent and Dave feel of the Frankenlime?
most likely tabac or brut..but maybe canoe or hai karate..stetson was more the 80s cowboy theme ..
awesome Katana shave and pic Jason..
Congrats on the new razor and an excellent shave, Danny! I am going to do the mini focus as well.
Oh I wouldn't have imagined any of them with Stetson. .
Nice shave and post, Paul!
Good post, Gary!
I sometimes change handles for grip comfort, but I don't see much difference in the shaves. I eventually compensate for the difference in weight and center of gravity.
I nominate @clint64 (fresh out of tax season) to be Norm.
SOTD TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 5, 2021
Today featured a German shave cream that my son, Ben, has been after me to try. It was part of my Christmas package from him, and honestly, it’s not a bad product! He loves the scent, and yes, it lathers easily. In order to keep with the German theme today’s shave featured the Muhle 2011 R41 for the noggin with my Puma 88 5/8 queued up for my mug. The JR synthetic #343 easily generated the two types of lather I prefer for my shaves. Just to change things up a bit, I began with the dome, and loaded a Kai blade instead of my usual Feather. Since the Kai is very slightly wider than the Feather, there was definitely more blade feel. The two pass shave was velveteen smooth and set the stage for the great mug shave to follow. The new edge I’ve put on all my straight razors is buttery smooth, The Puma swept away my facial stubble in three luxurious passes. The finish with Williams Aqua Velva (Spanish Version) capped off a refreshing, velveteen smooth, cooling shave.
