    Shave of the Week Starting 12/28/2020

    Gillette Tech razor (triangle slots)
    Rainbow Stainless blade
    FS Silver Tip brush
    Lea Mentholated SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    What a wonderful shave to start the week with, so smooth and easy and made my face very happy. Hadn't used the Lea Mentholated SC in a long time and now wonder why. It works great for me and is a real face freezer. So all is well and ready for a new year. Hope it's better than the last one. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Shave of the Week Starting 1 Feb 2021

    Gillette Slim Adjustable
    Glatz blade
    Plisson/L'Occitane brush
    Seaforth! Heather SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Seaforth! Heather A/S

    Mighty fine shave indeed! All the parts are known and wonderful except the Glatz blade. I got 100 of those when I purchased a new Pearl Flexi razor. The razor was defective, new one on the way, but thought I would try one of these out. Not the sharpest but very smooth, comfortable and did a good job. Just had to move the Slim from 7 to 8. I could like these. Anyway, all is well and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Shave of the Week Starting 8 Feb 2021

    Pearl Flexi razor
    Rainbow Stainless blade
    WD Synthetic brush
    Viking "Citron" Shave Soap
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    I purchased one of the original Flexi razor last year, November I think, and it was unfortunately defective. The company offered a refund or replacement. I opted for the replacement and received this past weekend. So off we go with the new one and it was just fine. The apparent defectives look to be resolved and I had a fine shave today. The blade gap looks a little scary at #6 on the adjustment scale so I started at 2.5. Very smooth and comfortable giving me an easy DFS. I think tomorrow I'll up it to 3 and see how it goes. So my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Shave of the Week Starting 15 Feb 2021

    Pearl Flexi razor
    Glatz blade
    Fine Accoutrements "Classic" brush
    Pearlman Shavers Spirit SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Decided to use the Flexi razor again this week. It's a good shaver for me. I also decided to use the Glatz blade as well. These came with my original Flexi and I've used them in my Gillette Slim with good results. Today, the Flexi/Glatz pairing worked well and my face is happy with the performance of them together. The Pearlman SS came with the replacement Flexi. It's a small 50gr container and kinda difficult to load the brush but it performed very well. Built a fine lather easily and provided good protection during the shave. Don't care for the scent but, again, the performance is good. So, all is well. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Shave of the Week Starting 1 March 2021

    Parker 87r razor
    Treet Dura Sharp blade
    Maison Lambert Silver Tip brush
    Proraso Green SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    The Parker is a nice mild shaver which is what I want today/this week. The Maison Lambert brush is huge but feels like a soft fluffy cloud when using it. I like it and should use it more often. At any rate, my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Shave of the Week Starting 8 March 2021

    Razor - Weber DLC
    Blade - Daxton Stainless or Gillette Wilkinson
    Brush - JR #85
    Cream - C.O. Bigelow
    Post Care - Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    A/S - whatever I want each day

    I had tried the Daxton blades before and wasn't terribly impressed. But, the blades now have new packaging so I just knew there would be a difference. Was there? Not really, the first few strokes were a bit tuggy like before but then it suddenly smoothed out and gave a right decent shave. Easily DFS since I don't shoot for BBS any longer. I have the Wilkinson blades on standby just in case. Overall, a fine shave and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks. Don't know if I will cuz gotta clean the chicken coop. UGH
