    Fabulous. Now if you do not get called to work you can hang out by your mailbox waiting for the postman.

    I ended last month with Mad Max and it is only fitting to start May Mayhem with him.
    Everything went well. The BoS soap and aftershave has a nice cologne scent. The lather was creamy and slick for Mad Max to perform well. Two passes with minor touchup gave me a near BBS shave without any mishaps. Finished with the witch hazel, balm and the awesome aftershave splash. Tomorrow night, I expect to be shaving with Artie. What a way to open a month! Have a great Sunday!

    Wow! I missed one day in May and it’s already head to catch up/keep up with this here thread!
    I’m going to focus on finishing up any nearly empty tubs and samples I have laying around this month. A secondary focus is trying my hand at restoring a razor or 2 ... depends how the 1st one comes out. I unpinned my Geneva last night and went to town on it with some 400 grit and WD-40. It was nice and therapeutic to just have all my focus on what I was doing. Similar to how I feel about straight shaving in general.

    Thank you Joe.. The Mühle R89 is docile compered to the Mühle R41, however, paired together with an assertive blade it performs wonderfully. Your experience is correct Mühle make great razors. :cool:

    Super gear John! I do not own a Geneva, but I have heard that they shave well.

    Thanks Joe. Two and half years ago, wetshaving was not on my radar; let alone straight razor shaving.
    It's mind boggling to me how far my journey has taken me in a relatively short period.
