Here's a great set-up which will be perfect for:

    Menthol Monday:

    Gatsby Ice Cooling Gel Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    #6 Horsehair
    Super Speed/new Rapira
    Egyptian Ingram SC :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Anherb AS Conditioner :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Osage Rub AS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Azzaro Pour Homme Deo Stick
    Azzaro Pour Homme EDT

    Like I was telling my good friend Graeme, the fact that I chose Ingram for Menthol Monday was because of his inspiration. This is the Egyptian version which has the same terrific scent and lather, but a stronger cooling effect and a better consistency. The Anherb/Rubby Dubby Doo combination ensures a frozen face for most of the day. ;) :D

    Prep: Hot shower
    Cream: TOBS Mr Taylor sample

    Blade: Schick (1)
    passes: WTG, XTG, ATG
    Post: Cold water rinse
    Aftershave: Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    Cologne: Cuba

    Just got this injector over the weekend, so of course I had to use it. First time for the Mr Taylor, it made a great lather but had very little scent (I prefer scented creams). A great shave with no irritation. I always get a smooth shave with injectors, they just aren't quite as close as the SE's or DE's but they sure feel good.

    Menthol Monday. If you like menthol, try the barbasol pacific rush. Its the second or third ingredient, very chilly. Have a good week!

    Gillette NEW LC with Astra SP
    Proraso PSC
    C.R. Salter's Wild Rose SC
    GT G4 Scuttle
    Omega Boar
    Thayer's Witch Hazel
    Nivea Replenishing ASB
    British Sterling Cologne

    Noticed PanChango's Klar Kabinett SS this morning and got the urge for Rose scent. It's great to be home and using the Scuttle this morning and the warmth of the scuttle makes the Rose scent even more fantastic! The Gillette NEW is an oldie but a goodie. It's the normal "Copper Top" after so many years of service but, darn if it doesn't look like one of those fancy Rosegold Muhles' that are available now of days. lol

    Monday morning. Doctor’s appt. this morning. Then off to work. Need a good shave to get started.

    Axe Chilled facial wash/V05 conditioner
    Shave Secret
    Barbasol Soothing Aloe
    Van Der Hagen Boar Brush
    Astra Superior Platinum (1)
    Edwin Jagger DE89L razor
    Witch Hazel
    Captain’s Choice Bay Rum

    For another gratifying BBS!

    A good shave helps me get done what needs to be done.

    A three pass with touch-ups. I’ve said this before, but while buffing it helps to pretend I’m shaving the Barbasol off my face, rather than the stubble. When I aim for that feeling, I can hear that stubble being cut!

    I can’t wait to try C.O. Bigalow cream in a tube. The will be my next purchase at the beginning of May. I have to hold myself to a monthly budget to stay in control!

    youngunn Where's my TSD aftershave balm???



    Cetaphil face wash
    TOBS Sandalwood SC
    Merkur 34C HD
    Super-max Titanium
    4 passes
    Cold water splash, Clubman AS, Clubman Talc on body, iced Nivea Sensitive balm
    Murray's Superior pomade

    Very nice shave this morning.

    Tried a new technique for me, on the second and third XTG passes. I went true east to west, all the way across the face and neck, and west to east all the way across the other way. Then on the 4th pass ATG, I started at the bottom of my neck and went all the way up to the face. Long even strokes. Had good results, YMMV.

    Let's make it through another Monday friends. :eek:

    Always like your pics Bruce. How is the Salter's rose scent as compared to Klar?

    Stroker Well-Known Member

    Thanks! I haven't tried the Klar (I want to but, just haven't found the opportunity to order some. I have heard some great reviews of it as a Rose Scent SS.) The Slater's is very nice and has a pleasant rose scent (not too sweet) that stays with you for hours. The warmth of your body when active brings the scent out. Using it in the warm scuttle really activates the rosey scent during the shave process. It comes in a 5.8 oz tub (which lasts forever). I've had mine for 3-4 years and still haven't used it up yet.

    • Prep: hot washing cloth
    • Brush: Travel King boar
    • Soap: vintage Williams
    • Razor: Shake Sharp silver
    • Blade: Gillette carbon Super Blue (#2)
    • Shave: 3-pass + touch-up (1 shake between passes)
    • Post: hot water rinse, cold water rinse, 3 shakes, load blade in Shake Sharp bakelite, DVH alum
    SoS 2013-04-15.jpg
    Apart from the razor: exactly the same set-up. The silver Shake has a different balance than the bakelite Shake. I think it's also a tad less agressive. Nice shave, though!
