    Joe:
    My shaves with the Vector are so close and smooth, that I only need to shave every other day. That Schick Proline blade is amazing!

    Enjoy your shaves,

    Jeff

    Thanks Blair
    I find that using the AS then slothering on the ASB works good for me. I'm a bay rum fan, the PAA has no clove, and thats a hit for me.

    Great picture, Blair! PAA AS are As/Cologne, so they do last a bit.

    Razor: Gillette Super Speed Flare Tip (A3) 1955
    Blade: Wilkinson Sword (5)
    Brush: APShaveCo. Synthetic FAN w/ Elegant Emerald Handle - Extra Dense Shaving Brush - Cream/Brown - Imitation Badger.
    Soap: Reef Point Soap Dragons Blood
    Aftershave: Folsom & Co. Capri
    Bowl: Symmetrical Pottery Starry Night Dottie Bowl

    Sticking with my collection of Gillette razors this month. They are as good today as when they where first made.
    Today is Friday and I know how much the 2 Amigos love Friday, so I thought I'd take a Tres Amigo Friday shave. The fourth Amigo is everyone else at the shave den.
    Fall is slowly approaching, the days are getting shorter, the nights a little longer. Trees are starting to change, some birds have already left for warmer climates.
    This was an amazing BBS shave. I even had a second look at Dragons Blood. It is a solid shave soap, however, there is something about it that it is not in the buy again bracket.

    I'm the opposite. Not the biggest fan of creams/lotions/balms in any shape or form (face/skin/sun/etc.).. I buy very sparingly, as most are way too thick/greasy for my tastes. The PAA Star Jelly, got a couple samples....found out it's close enough to perfect for me. Even when I find one I like, I apply very lightly first....then go big with the AS as it helps thin out the 'greasy' feeling.

    Never tried that.
    I splash on rhe AS, then use a small amount of ASB mixed with water. I just use enough to cover everything I shaved, what's left over go on the elbows and arms. Seems the AS only last about 1/3 as long as the ASB.
    So 3 bottles of AS vs 1 bottle of ASB.

    Wonderful shave and photo Amigo. The Dragons Blood soap scent was something else. Happy Friday.

    Nice image as always Jim (fixed). Love the gear. You guys have had way too much rain.

    Cool razor and shave Jeff. Great combination of gear! Making me jealous with that Vector.....
