    I won't be doing a SotW this time around. Going in for surgery and not sure what will be going on for sure. I'll be back at it as soon as I can

    Oh I see...this is what you'll do ALL WEEK. I thought it was your FAVORITE shave of the week. :)

    Correct. Poppi suggested something along these lines in post #1 of this thread. Sort of a mini-focus month deal. Also a good way to whittle down the stash.

    Good luck Poppi. That positive attitude of yours will go a long way!

    I'm Back! And next week's Shave of the Week will be:

    Weber DLC razor
    Astra SP blade
    JR #85 brush
    Taconic Eucalyptus Mint SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Taconic Eucalyptus Mint A/S

    Haven't done much in the way of shaving since surgery but want/need to get back in the groove. All these items tried and proven for me so I look forward to this week's shaves. BTW, surgery went well and the pathology of surrounding tissue showed all clear. Need a pet scan and meeting with my oncologist to verify but feeling pretty good right now.

    Now that's some welcome news! Glad to hear you're doing well.

    I've been growing a coronavirus beard so my weekly shaves ain't much. Just trimming cheeks and neck line. I'll try to come up with a weekly starting this Sunday (26 April 2020).

    That's my take on it. Poppi may chime in if we're getting it wrong. I start my shave weeks on Sunday. Probably doesn't matter.

    Like you, I have a ton of stuff that'll take forever to use up and growing a beard ain't making much of a dent in the stash!

    Nice that you can work from home. I'm retired so not much disruption in my routine.

    Shave of the Week!!

    I haven't posted much lately. Trying to deal with my wife's passing has been difficult. Every day is a mixed bag, sometimes better and then something will trigger a memory/thought and it's tough again.

    Anyway, this week's stuff is:

    Gillette Slim Adjustable razor
    Astra SP blade
    WD Synthetic brush
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill A/S

    Nice nice shave indeed. All the parts liked each other a lot and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Fine "Marvel" razor
    Treet 7 Days blade
    RazoRock Plissoft brush
    VDH Deluxe Shave Soap
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe

    Haven't used the VDH Deluxe in a very very long time and now wonder why. Lathers easily and gives great protection, what's not to like. Hadn't ever paired up the Fine razor and the Treet blade. They complimented each other and a fine shave was had. My face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks
