    Love the Romera, Keith, and the big smiler is always such a cool looking razor.

    Yes I think it's time for me to do a focus rather than a rule. I quite like Neal's Mild March theme idea. I'm bored of Tabac after using it for the last few months so a switch to Proraso Green is in order. And a nice selection of Techs for some variety. Pre and Post. Fat and Ball-end handles. Canadian, American and British versions. Yep, and a boar brush for that Italian soap so an Omega 10005 slides right in there. The rotation of Techs to be loaded with a nice mild Derby Extra (pre-2016). Everything remains constant except for the rotation of Techs. I'll go with Proraso Green Menthol and Eucalyptus Splash to round it up.
    Brush: Omega 10005 Boar
    Soap: Proraso Green Tub
    Blade: Derby Extra Stainless
    Razor: A rotation of several Gillette Techs
    Aftershave: Proraso Green Splash​

    TSD Anniversary shave. One year ago today I joined up with this crazy group of wet shavers and what a fun year it's been! I want to thank you guys for having me. I've felt welcome from the start. I also want to thank this group of expert enablers for introducing me to some wonderful products, and a lot of them. My shaves have gone from a mundane task to something I look forward to everyday.

    No better way to gauge my progress than to repeat my first focus. Last March I probably only got fifteen or so shaves in because my skin was too sensitive to shave daily. :) I see myself shaving everyday this month. Shouldn't be a problem since I haven't missed my daily shave since the first week of August.

    Excellent shave to start this day. Three passes with complete silence from the alum. Rough spot on my right jaw kept the baby at bay.

    Happy Friday my friends![​IMG]

    Prep: Cold water and Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap
    Blade: vintage Personna twin
    Razor: Schick L1
    Brush: Omega 10049 boar
    Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat

    Wonderful Fat Friday shave as expected. Incredible lather from The Fat and efficient shaving with the twin-bladed L1. Old formula American Blend to finish. This setup works so well for me and I look forward to it each week.

    Terrific shaves, everyone! It's going to be a fun month.
