    Y'know, the national holiday commemorating Vet Day should have been yesterday. I once thought that if a holiday like that occurred on a week-end, they'd pick the day closest to the week-end(that is, Friday if the holiday is on Saturday, Monday if...............Sunday.

    Great photo as usual, Jim! Glad you’re enjoying the Vector. Let me know if you’d like to try some Schick Proline AC blades.

    Strangely enough my mother has stockpiled around 1000 or so trac 2 carts for my father, and continues to still. She works for a pharmacy chain store and oddly enough once they sit on the shelf for six months they mark them down to $.15 for the 10 piece refill packs.

    Mystic Water~~Rubberset~~Mühle~~Feather~~C. O. Bigelow
    Thinking I could accelerate the completion of the Mystic Water Sandalwood Rose,
    I grabbed the Rubberset for maximum
    soap eating. :eatdrink023:
    Loaded the brush for about 10
    minutes :happy102: and proceeded to the kisser.
    With that amount of soap, I had to add at least 1 cup of H2O to the lather. :happy097:
    Quality lather, enough to shave a football team. :happy108:
    With that in mind, I plopped a brand, spankin' new Feather blade into my '11 Mühle R41.
    Expecting the typical "harsh" first shave with the Feather, much to my chagrin, I was treated to 3 buttery smooth passes,
    resulting in an excellent DFS++ (no chasing the baby with the R41) shave.
    Completing today's outing were the Thayer's, DRH and finally the C. O. Bigelow.

    Aos is still there. And now that you mention it with the times I’ve been there I have never seen a barber there either.

    The Vector definitely won’t be on sale for Black Friday. That would be quite the slap in the face for all the customers who just a week ago waited in line to buy it at full price.

    I always start with a Feather Pro with a new artist club razor. From there I go up to the Super if needed.
