    I downloaded the zoom app and it took almost an hour. I started at 8:10pm, by the time it downloaded the conference was over. As it turned out, I didn't have to download the app, but hit Jeff's link and put the password in the box.

    Congrats on getting that razor to the point where you could shave with it, Joe.

    Thanks, Joe. I always enjoyed three passes as well. The intentional switch to 2 passes is fairly recent, about two months ago. That’s also when I started only going WTG on my lower neck. The better results for that area is what I was aiming. I may go back to three passes but I would just do 3 WTG passes on my trouble area if I do.

    Very nice, Andrew. Love the brush and love Old Types. Proraso Green is such a 'Menthol Monday' classic as well.

    Very nice, Joseph. I start a lot of lathers off like that- a heavy load with a not super wet brush and then add a lot of water a bit at a time until 'the lather is flying'.

    Gosh, Tom, you always have such unique stuff. Today it is the splash- never heard of that one.

    Thanks, Jason. A friend PIF’d me the brush a couple years ago and it’s been great. I get really good results from the old type, but I tend to use SE razors more often. Last night before bed, I washed my face and splashed on some Osage Rub to get a head start on Menthol Monday.

    Thank you Jason! If you would have seen this chip with a wide gap, then you would say it was a lost cause. I neglected to mention it had some small chips and flat parts to the blade. A flat part means that the blade was probably dinged so the the edge was not smooth
    You can tell by shining a strong light on the edge. If you see reflective points on the edge, then you know the blade has some flat spots and the edge is not smooth.
