    Jason, I've been listening to some of the enthusiasts for years and thought this could be month to give it a try. Not sure if there is a difference other than cold so far...

    Thanks, Clint. Yes, the 'disposable' is going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy later tonight. I'd send it down to the Atlanta 'burbs, but I consider you a friend...:happy097:

    Thanks, Jason.

    I have one in mind, Soapy Science Lollipop Citrus. It's been kicking around the den for a long time. I'll start at one day a week and go from there.

    Awesome shave and you have started the Mayhem train with the little plastic razor. Things can only go up ......... or is it down from here. :D I wonder what Patrick is planning.

    Take care, Jason.

    In for May, possibly even a MayHem shave or two. The month of May marks my 2 year anniversary month of primarily shaving with an open edge device (shavette, Kamisori or traditional straight razor) for 5-6 days/week. I don't specifically chart my shaves, have zero desire to. But....just curious on where I was, I did some rough calculations. To date, approximately 577 open edge shaves, if not more (using 5.5 as a standard). Most weeks from mid Feb to Mid December (my busy season), it's ~5 days per week with an open edge, but from mid December to mid February it's 6, if not 7 days a week with an open edge. Rare is the time now I'm using a safety razor, except when I travel, and then....a good bit of the time I'm using a my Feather shavette.

    Past 2.5 months....tough to keep up/post on TSD. Unexpected challenges for our 2 teen aged children along with still being the caretaker for an elderly parent leaves very little time for anything other than keeping up with a busy work schedule. The 3 days off since first of March have been spent with family time (dates with wifey). Work slows a bit in May, which is a good thing. Still absolutely IN on the No Buy 2021, that ship still 'full steam ahead' and on course.

    Today's shave, awesome PAA lather from the EVO, super smooth shaving from the Drew Dick Damascus blade. Couple weepers though, skin blemishes that get mowed over.

    For the frag heads.....PAA's Doppelgänger Grey Label is a homage to Creed's Aventus. Super bright citrus/pineapple opening, with a wonderful wifey approved :love055: dry down. Lasts for hours and hours.

    Patrick didn't send me anything so far this month...whatever I come up with will be very tame in comparison. I do have the welded butterknife/GEM shaver he made last year, but since I had to epoxy it back together I'll try to avoid taxing the health care system these days...

    Great to see your posts and your beautiful pics, Blair! Your life needs to slow down a bit so that you can start surfing artisan websites again...:)
