Thank you Jeff.
Now I won't be able to sleep tonight.
Glad it is not a Civet. I don't know what they eat and I figure they would get a little fussy when I tried to rub it on my face in the mornings.
I have some Delrin on the way in and you will get a package one day as well.
Might be some more surprises coming in some unexpected mail boxes as well.
Gotta love this bunch.....crazy and generous.
Beautiful shave and write up Jim. Looking forward to your Astra Planeta April focus.
Wonderful Maximilian shave Joe. I guess you will be using the Mad Max every fourth day.
Very nice shave Pierpaolo.
Thank you Dave.
Thank you Danny. Rain will be arriving g around 6PM
Awesome classic scented shave Gary. Enjoy your day.
Mad Max is a beauty of a razor to hold. Wonderfully well balanced.
I've been wetshaving for about three and a half years now and have yet to finish a tub. I should put a serious dent in the Astra Planeta with thirty consecutive shaves next month.

Another Massamune shave with that beautiful razor, PierPaolo! Enjoy!
I'm sorry, but I do miss the erudite chimp avatar, Dave! Glad you're bringing it back!
Thank you guys. It has certainly been a day today. I hope you guys have had a good day as well.
Fantastic classic shave lineup and photo Gary.
That's an excellent choice Joe! Truthfully, I think any knot would look great with Evan's LE brush.
I would say that would be the average to get me to the beginning of June for the 1 yr anniversary. Of course, I will have to make up for the lost time with Rockwell mini focus during the 2nd week of April.
I had the first of two Covid shots today(Pfizer). I felt a little weak and woozy for a while, but eating changed that for the better. Next one will be 4-26.

After a few different options, decided to load this Oumo/APShave Silvertip into the awesome LE handle. Evan’s work is stunning, and I maintain that there is no one doing with brush handles what he is doing these days. People will start to copy asap, trust me. The Red was a good choice too, methinks.
This knot is an LE in a way, too. Only 18 made for APShave by Oumo. They call it The Hook on the Oumo site, a dense Silvertip fan on the APShave site. Look at the bloom on this thing. Wow:
I haven’t been a very active 30DCer these past 10 days or so. Even though I was able to take a few days off work, we are starting some renovations in the ‘ol home. That has taken my evenings lately, and I’m contemplating taking Wednesday and Thursday (ish) off work as well.
Regardless, I enjoyed the month with The Crew as always. I was able to rotate through 5 of my oldest soaps for a month’s focus and did join Joseph in an Old Type week. This Baker Street continues to be whittled as well. No idea what I’m doing for April yet...
Have a great night all!
