    Day 3 with the 2013 R41 delivers the goods. Stepped to a sharper blade and was nicely rewarded.

    One pass and a little touch up and I was good to go.

    It is sunny, but it is still chilly. Going to the Reds game at 1 for a Brandon Phillips bobblehead. Hope your day is as good as mine!

    Prep: hot shower, Axe Cooling Face Wash, Billy Jealousy Sucker Punch Face Scrub.
    Brush: TGN Grade A.
    Razor: '70 Aluminum Tech.
    Blade: Personna Lab.
    Soap: Tabac.
    Post: cold water rinse, Thayer's Lavender WH, Barbon AS.

    This is my first time using Tabac and I'm pretty impressed. It lathered up great, didn't dry up, had good slickness to it, and smelled pretty good. I've had some rough shaves recently and I have to dial in what's wrong and fix it so I don't keep having these problems.

    ER 1912/Gem SS d2
    Old Spice AS

    2 passes WTG & ATG.....With this 1912, buffing is so much fun....at the end of the shave I was thinking DFS and debated on a touch-up pass for 'Chasing the Baby"...ha,ha...But a couple hours later I'm thinking I made the right decision by not going on the 'Baby search' as I already found the baby and todays shave was a BBS...lol...

    Whichever way the 'Officials' call this one...Todays shave was a wonderful experience...

    Sunday
    Hot Shower-whiskers shampooed and conditioned
    Arko Shave Stick-bowl lathered
    Omega 10029 Baby-Pro
    Gem OC Micromatic/Gem SS d3
    Old Spice AS

    Finally got a 5 Blade rating from my wife with a safety razor....She's one severe shave critic...she scores a Turkish Barber shave in the 4's...maybe 4.25....The only 5s I remember getting were with the shavette and she said I was getting much better than Barber shop shaves after I got a handle with that...Today she said the same thing and was shocked to find I was using a safety razor...The OCMM knocked another one out the park!! As close as a Shavette but fast and easy like an injector...I love it!!

    Have a great Sunday everybody!!

    My shaves this weekend were made possible by two very special friends of mine who sent me some great creams from their countries - yesterday was a Russian Day dedicated to my friend Dmitry, and today was a Bulgarian Day dedicated to my friend Veli. This Aspis Ice Rain stuff gives such fabulous lather with a nice scent and it has a good cooling sensation which the Svoboda balsam (thanks again, Dmitry!) really increases. This shave was such a pleasure from start to finish! ;) :D
