November 30 Muhle R41 (2013) head & SS Big Bomber handle Feather (3) JR #160 Louisville Slugger handle with Omega 10098 boar knot Soap Commander Love Alum, Thayers Lavender witch hazel, unrefined shea butter, and Floid Vigoroso I enjoyed a nice, close two-pass shave today except for a couple of weepers. Even though JR #160 whipped up a mountain of SC lather, I really have to pay attention when using this beast. I'll continue with it for at least part of DECember. I may try some Russian blades in it to see if I can get a better result. NOvember has been an incredible month. It has been fun riding along with you all...that includes all the regulars as well our new 30DC members. I'm always amazed by the quality of your shaves, photos, and write ups. The shenanigans and banter were fun too. I never fail to learn something new, and this month my hat's off to @John Ruschmeyer for his incredible focus on Gillette Techs. His posts peaked my interest so much that I should receive my first Tech in the mail from him tomorrow. This trusty razor will primarily be used for travel, but I'll definitely shave with it at home as well. I used a variety of razors and brushes - more than I normally use in a single month. I used a '54 Flare Tip SS, a '61 Slim, and an R41 with a big hunka steel for a handle. I also used my Kent BK8, Chubby 2, LE, and JR 160 brushes. My blades included Ladas, Sputnik, and Feather. Continuing my focus of finishing off some items, I knocked off a tin of LPL soap, a Hendrix soap sample, as well as bottles of Trumper Coral Skin Food and Thayers Lavender Witch Hazel. I am currently working through a container of Soap Commander Love. See you all in DECember!
