    I will wait until the soap and aftershave are available from US vendors. $25 shipping is just crazy.

    June 6th
    Razor: Timeless .95 SC
    Blade: Treet Platinum (3)
    Brush: WWB Limedrop/TDR Fanchurian
    Pre-shave: PAA The Cube
    Soap: Stirling Lime
    PAA Galactic witch hazel
    Stirling Glacial balm
    AS: Stirling Lime

    Good morning!

    Undocumented shave before bed last night. I had a small SDM sample from a recent Stirling order that I was transferring into my full size tub. There was enough left stuck to the packaging and my fingers for a shave. I felt my face, the sandpaper was just starting to emerge. What the heck, a quick uneventful three passes. I went ahead and shaved again this morning, keeping with my routine eventhough there wasn't much to remove. Another quick uneventful three passes until I picked up the alum. Pretty darn hot over most of my face. Long story short, my face needs more than eightish hours between shaves.

    Have a great weekend!

    Another beauty this morning.....0:25 to load the Crown King 26 mm. Spindle Duro Tali...I squeezed out a lot of water from it after about 0:10 under the tap. With the Acqua Shaving Cream Soap, I think the more you "squeeze out" the better, as it is a moist soap to begin with. Still a bit damp as I spread it across my face&neck, but certainly no Niagra Falls. 2 solid passes. Y'know, I was thinking....my "prep" in the shower should count as a "pass" even though it doesn't shave off any Astroturf, as it really sets up the shave for later. But I'll stick with just what it is....a shave prep. Anyway, zero cuts-maybe a "slight" nick around the jaw, but I hardly noticed it while shaving(that is, it just suddenly "appeared" but I didn't know it until post-shave). Aqua Velva to finish again, but it's kind of frustrating when you go into a public place now.....unless the scent can penetrate my Covid 19 mask. Just for backup, I put some on my forehead.....THAT ain't covered up. Even with the mini-nick...Top Of The World Excellent.

    I have what you have-the Glacial Lime A.S. sure packs a wallop.

    Excellent shave, Jim! Those colors worked amazingly well together. It's funny how we will shave just because we can, as opposed to needing to shave.

    Fine shave report, Paul. Those red dots that appear late to the party are annoying.

    Thank you, Andrew!
    I've accumulated quite the assortment of gear so I can usually put together stuff that compliments one another. If not, well that's what B&W pictures are for.

    Beautiful shave Keith! The Heritage C-Mon brush is awesome. The green and back handle is a great combo. I am honored and humbed that you dedicated your shave to me. Have a nice day!

    Nice pic and post! I had a friend whose beard was so dense that he would have to shave two times a day. I use to kid him about it. Looking back, I guess you can say he was fortunate.

    Awesome shave Paul! Sometimes I will put dot a strong aftershave on my shirt collar to make the scent more pronounced.
