    Shave of the Week Starting 3 October 2022

    Schick Route 66 razor
    Personna blade
    AP Shave Co. brush
    Williams SS (vintage)
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Thought it was time for a bit of a change so am using an injector this week. Been quite awhile since using one but the technique quickly came back and a fine shave was had. Love vintage Williams though I can get a great lather from the modern stuff as well. So it's a great start to the week. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Shave of the Week Starting 10 October 2022

    Parker 94r razor
    Gillette Wilkinson blade
    Whipped Dog Synthetic brush
    Spearhead Shaving Seaforth! Spiced SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Spearhead Shaving Seaforth! A/S Tonic

    Last December I had a really bad bout of Covid (at least to me it was bad) and it messed up my smeller which still hasn't recovered 100%. Some of the scents I used to love I can barely stand now. Decided to try the Seaforth! Spiced SS cuz it works great and had smelled wonderful before Covid. Now it still works great and I can deal with the scent. It's so messed up. Anyway, a fine shave was had and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Shave of the Week Starting 17 November 2022

    Parker 78r razor
    Tatra blade
    Lord SC
    Plisson/L'Occitane brush
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    The Parker 78r is, to me, a very fine razor. Easy to use and producing a comfortable efficient result. The Tatra blades are so-so to me, smooth but not to sharp. Maybe it's the razor since it's so mild and comfortable. At any rate, my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Razor : Micromatic OC- Mfg 1939-41, mid to upper mid range, built to last and with good technique a person can receive some nice close shaves. I also used a RIGS spline shim for addition testing.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE(7) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest razor blade to handle IMO.
    Soap : Razorock XXX [​IMG]- nice unique clean scent + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Razorock Plissoft 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, great splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. Used this brush a lot when I started traditional wet shaving.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Razorock XXX AS [​IMG] with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 chin weeper=[​IMG] excellent shave with Gem MMOC with a Gem coated blade.

    Shave of the Week Starting 7 November 2022

    Schick Injector razor (E3 I think)
    Personna blade
    AP Shave Synthetic brush
    Lea Shave Stick
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Long long time since I use a lot of these items and shame on me. The Lea stick produced an easy abundant lather and the Schick /Personna just wiped it right off in a comfortable/smooth/effective way. My face is smooth and happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Rusty blade The Good Humor Man

    Greetings all! Here is my shave kit for the coming week starting Sunday November 20, 2022.

    Razor: EJ 3one6
    Blade: Gillette Sharp Edge
    Brush: Omega mixed boar / badger (this is one of my travel brushes, but since I dont travel much these days, I thought it needed a good workout)
    Soap: Palmolive. A favourite. Cheap as dirt and a great lather. Mild, cheap motel soap kind of fragrance.
    Wax: Grave Before Shave - cigar and vanilla scent. Strong hold -- strong enough to hang my car keys on.
    Well, that's about it guys.
