    2020 Shavette Focus Shave # 21

    Two days of growth, two-plus passes, and a DFS+ overall result. No blood or irritation, and the alum was quiet. I'll take it.

    For obvious reasons, none of us will ever forget March 2020. March Madness, in many ways, has proved to be a welcome distraction from reality. This is one of the few places I visit where the generosity, acceptance, encouragement, and help flows so freely. I'll always value the friendships I've made here. A few wingnuts and troublemakers persist, and you know who you are. ;)

    I've completed 21 shaves using a Parker SRX shavette (a fantastic tool) since February 22. The shaves have generally been DFS or better, and my confidence continues to increase. I'm working on some new maneuvers and grips, and I continue to make baby-step improvements. I really appreciate my friends here offering suggestions and tips that help me learn. I've enjoyed watching my 30 DC brothers have fun, improve their techniques, and show off their new gear. Great job, everyone.

    See you next month, gentlemen. Tomorrow is April Fool's Day, right? ;)

    Awesome report and recap, Charlie! Don't quite know what this group would be without you.

    It's been a pleasure and a privilege battling the dogged attacks made by Helga this month--dare I say it? She appears to be suffering an acute attack of laryngitis ;)

    I agree, it is an iconic razor. Mine definitely lives up to the reputation, some excellent steel.

    Thanks Tim! I always have said to respect the tool, but not fear it. From day one, I started out embracing shavette shaving and that positive attitude gave this klutzy guy outside of the Chem lab, the diligence to continue to learn how to shave with an open blade razor. You have the same spark and that is why you are doing so well and having fun.

    Charlie, it's another awesome shave for you! After this focus, you will have another shaviing alternative anytime you desire and that's always a good thing!

    Thanks Tim. If you'd be so kind as to keep tabs on Helga again in April...

    March 31 SOTD:

    Razor: Razorock SS Lupo
    Blade: Gillette Nacet
    Brush: PAA Starcraft
    Lather: Tabac
    Aftershave: Tabac

    One final shave in March, and I did use some Tabac. Two passes, and I have a nice DFS. It feels good to have a smooth face again. I'll try to be better in April, but I already know I a home for the whole month. I hope everyone has been doing well.
