    Happy Independence Day everyone. I really like the WSP soaps but I do wish the container were larger. As it is now, the soaps are a pain to load properly. However, once loaded the "Soap Destroyer" whipped up a lather with ease. Three passes and touch ups ended with the baby escaping. Somehow I missed a spot on my lower left neck. A splash of Antesol followed by Habit Rouge and I am ready for the day. Today is my Mom's 81st birthday, so we are going to visit and take her to lunch. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday. To those of use celebrating Happy Fourth.

    The container may not be larger than it is, but I suppose that's why Lee jams that soap in there to give it a pancake look.

    Excellent, Joseph!
    I like the looks of the Ranger Tech and it sounds like a great shaver. I'll have to add one to the want list.

    Happy July 4th, my friends!
    Today, I decided to use my Rockwell Model T. I have been using this razor to shave my head, so I wanted to face shave with it. I had a Voskhod blade and believe this will be my 5th shave with the blade. In honor of our national holiday, I decided to use my Pro 49 boar and Williams mug soap. I think that I solved this soap's problem with it drying out and disappearing while shaving. Last night, I covered the puck with water and let it bloom overnight. Poured off the bloom water and used it as a preshave. While I was loading the brush, it did produce lather pretty quickly. At that point, I used a quick pushdown method, similar to using a plunger to unclog a toilet. I face lathered and worked it in and got a decent lather that did not quit. It was still on the wet side, but it stayed on my face and didn't disappear. Now, it is not like my other soaps, but it did a nice job. It was nice to see a straight soap edge when I took the razor away from my face. That never happened with this soap. So my friends, you don't need to molest it. I think you would be pleasantly surprised if you use this procedure with Williams. I did 3 passes and got a great BBS shave. I binned the blade at the end of the shave because I could tell that I had to go over some areas more than 2x. Finished with the reliable Old Spice AS. Have a safe 4th of July, guys! 20190704_092714.jpg 20190704_092714.jpg
