    November 30 SOTD:

    Razor: Gillette Blue Tip
    Blade: Polsilver
    Brush: Ever-Ready 150
    Lather: Arko
    Aftershave: Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel
    Additional Care:
    Stirling Unscented PSB

    The Blue Tip (really any SS) is a great razor for a rushed shave, so I packed wisely last night. It was two very quick passes, and maybe just shy of a DFS. I normally don't worry too much about scents with weather, but Grey Flannel really works better for me in cooler, so I went with this morning. Of course, it turns out to warming up a bit today, but the scent is still nice.

    I think I managed to go the whole month without repeating a razor, which was definitely some fun. I've enjoyed all the fun in the thread this month and am looking forward to December. I hope everyone has a great day!

    Every two years I have to get a DOT physical. They use BMI and neck measurements to determine if a driver needs to take a sleep study to determine if they have sleep apthnea. I have a very physical career that keeps me in pretty good shape, I’m 5’10” 172 lbs strangely my doctor said I was .1 away from being obese, and having to do a sleep study and also being obese. So I decided to find a new doctor due to this among other reasons.

    Congratulations on the new vehicle. A good salesman makes all the difference.

    Sorry to hear about the mishap from the gods having their fun at your expense. And for the drag I would think stropping the blade a few strokes would help that. But anyway good work on keeping the majority of your blood inside the body. :happy096:

    Thank you Perry. The O&C is close but I believe it grows after each use. The commute was not too bad this morning. I think my wife and I are going to a brew pup for dinner so I’m sure I’ll get a couple in.

    Very nice setup Keith. Good choice on the Bismarck in disguise keeping a low profile

    Nice shape setup, and the relaxation is why I shave in the evening. Sounds strange wielding a really sharp instrument around the face is relaxing.:shaver

    Thanks Charlie, This was from a pic. Andrew donated the head and Jim made the handle. I sure love this razor

    Great shave Perry!

    Awesome report Clint. Detailed and beautiful pics.

    Great choice in soap Jim. Can't beat the Arko.
