Most excellent Pierpaolo.
Sir Hare&Co.'s Bay Rum offering is called Drunken Sailor.
Thanks Joe. Your shave was a great one too. Would be interesting to try the Osage Rub, but i can't really get it anywhere
Awesome shave Jeff. Hope you have some positive new regarding your family. Prayers are with you my friend.
Yardley Black Label~~Simpson PL8~~#44 British Gillette Tech/Sharp Star
Today, I broke open a NOS container of the undisputed King of vintage shave soaps:
Yardley Black Label.
The exquisite scent is still very strong off of the puck.
No bloom, as my former experience using this soap (I had one and sold it ) knows it is unnecessary.
Perhaps my choice of the Polo 8 was a bit large for this container, but I made it work.
Soap leapt from the puck and as I have been wont to do, as of late, I went straight to the face.
While this photo isn't all that impressive, I can assure you,
this knot was "locked and loaded" for bear.
In keeping with my almost all "British" theme, I chose the #44 Tech.
While I was tempted to open a new Wilkinson Chromium Blade, a.k.a. "Light Brigade",
I decided to get one last shave out of the Russian Sharp Star.
The results were lovely, although I could sense the end was nigh with this blade.
Nevertheless, I caught the baby---even on the neck.
One weeper on said neck kept this shave from becoming one for the record books.
Finished with another new acquisition, a jumbo 7+ oz. of the matching AS.
Super Duper Excellent. Always a positive Paul
I manage to get it on Amazon
Excellent shaves, gents.
Fabulous shave Joe. You have manage to have a large variety of interesting soaps.
I can't really order aftershaves from the US to Finland if they contain alcohol, some sort of regulations i think, but can't really remember the details
It is that indeed, Joe. I'm pleased.

Thanks, Joe. I have had a myriad of soaps in and out of my den over the past 6+ years.
