    This straight is a ebay special I got for $5. I have not had the chance to hone it so last night I spend about one hour on the stones. I have to say that it was a very smooth shave after it took the edge. Just 2 passes and some touch up for a smooth BBS. Not bad for $5.

    I have a DD and a Clauss on the way, can't wait to try the DD.

    I will temporarily say the SMFIII is more suited for creams. It gobbles so much water I have to revise my water ratios. Also, I’m more and more convinced I prefer the pro-blades rather than the super pro.

    Great looking shot Yukio!

    How did you pull the color out except for the brush?
  17. Lyrt

    Lyrt Flash

    Simple, it only took a minute to do that as the blue of the letters were the only colours that stood out. Here’s what I did step by step:

    – Adjustments => Selective color => cyan
    – Cyan & black + 100% (it allows to make the blue colours stand out even more)

    Now the real thing:
    – In the toolbox, select the magic wand
    – Use it on a letter, then right click and choose “similar”
    – Right click and “select inverse”. Now whatever you do to the image will alter everything but the letters
    – “Desaturate” the image or use the “channel mixer” (I used the latter)
    – Voilà

    It really takes no more than one or two minutes once you’re used to doing it.

    You Photoshop cool kids rock.

    Hot shower
    SMF 1 brush
    '61 Fatboy w/Derby Extra blade (Day 2)
    Pre de Provence soap
    QED DaVinci Water
    Musgo Real A/S splash
    SCS Embrace A/S milk
    SCS Embrace EdT

    Went a bit heavy on the SCS Embrace cologne... gotta remember that her scents are a single squirt, and sometimes even less. :o I'm constantly amazed at how potent the SCS line of colognes are.

    Soap technique (started 1 week ago) - Soak Brush in hot water/1 tsp glycerin while showering. Cover soap with warm water after shower. Rinse face with hot water. Empty shave bowl and shake out brush. Dump soap water into bowl. Quick swirl brush into soap water and apply to face. Swirl again in soap water. Dump little remaining. Charge brush in soap until some lather over sides. Make lather on face. Add water as needed each pass. Hot water rinse between passes. Still good lather in brush at end of 3 passes plus cleanup lather.
