    Brush: JR #377 badger
    Razor: Parker Adjustable Injector
    Blade: Personna
    Lather: Stirling Ozark Mountain
    Post: Witch hazel, Stirling Ozark Mountain aftershave

    Pretty good first shave with the Parker Adjustable. I left it on the middle setting. Angle was fairly intuitive but I lost it some on my neck and had a poor first pass there. Went back and cleaned up on the second pass for a nice shave. I will use the Parker until Friday and try some different settings. First impression is good.

    Get used to seeing that Ozark Mountain tub. I'll use it all month or until it runs out. Wonderful scent. Enjoy your day!

    Awesome shave to end November.

    The Karve with the solid bar plate C is a smooth driver. Paired with an Astra and three passes I am slick. I really enjoy the P160 and look forward to comparing it to the Cella. Finished the shave with some Black Tie Gentleman a dupe of Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.

    Hard to believe this month is almost over. We have had some great shaves, laughs and fun this month and for that I am thankful. Ya'll are a great group of guys.

    Have a great day!

    Great shave, Perry. I am sticking with another soap (cream) until it's gone as well. The race is on!

    Eleven months in the can. Some may say, trash can.
    I, for one am happy this year is coming to a close.

    That being said, one of the highlights has been this thread and the terrific people who post here.
    For that, I am very grateful.
    The HMS Baume.BE has left dry dock and is following the fateful course that it's forefather, the HMS
    Titanic
    sailed in 1912. What wonderful send off to my favorite cream.
    I have a feeling this one will be on my re-purchase list. Buy for now, let's run with it and enjoy the shaves.

    There's no debating the quality of lather this soap produces.
    My Persian Jar 2 (replaced a sold PJ3) has really impressed me.
    While it's big brother was very nice, this knot is unbelievable and the handle,
    with its more delicate lines, is proving to be not only quite attractive, but ergonomic as well.
    Lather-making started with a dollop smeared on the bottom of my shaving bowl.
    With a damp, but not dripping brush, I began the swirling, adding miniscule amounts of water
    very slowly. One time did I clear the breach;
    dip the tips into the water and continue the process.
    Then, I move to the face, so I actually swing both ways. Careful.:rolleyes005:
    Today, I grabbed my Canadian Tech; loaded the same Sharp Star blade as yesterday
    and performed a three-pass shave.
    My ATG neck-pass has mixed results. It's still suffering from the slight irritation
    I caused two days ago with my '08 SR.
    So, I was careful and kept the pressure to a bare minimum.
    DFS+++ was the results and I am good with that.
    Not pictured, is the Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia cologne.
    This juice rocks.
    I hope you all will have a glorious final day in November and am anticipating some really
    informative posts for next month.

    A real nice way to finish off the current set of Stoylin Ramblin' Man. My swirling motion(with the brush)must be improving, as I get good wet soap at about 0:25. I should add-0:10 under the warm/hot tap water prior to the swirling. The brush of use this morning was the Stoylin 26 mm. "Pro-Handle". It's the heaviest of my brush arsenal. 2 strong passes. Excellent all around, but for a few spots just under the jawline(North Cactus Nation). No redness anywhere-"awwwwriiiight!". Ramblin Man A.S. to finish. I'm glad Doc Ezlovan had "Shake Before Use" written on the A.S. I wonder if he has that for all his aftershaves. Out Of This World Excellent.
