    Arko Adjustable April

    April 17

    Razor - Qshave (Futur clone) (6)
    Blade - [​IMG] (1)
    Soap - Arko
    Brush - Jayaruh #312
    Post - Alum

    On to my final DE adjustable. The Qshave razor of terror. Ok, so it actually isn't that bad, but opening it fully up to 6 creates a gap you can drive a truck through. It's a heavy razor and a lot of fun to use. Noisy, but very effective. Paired with the Sharp Star it gives an excellent smooth and close shave. Two passes and a little sliding on the neck and all's well in the Lou! The JR312 was again fun and quite easy to load up and make enough Arko to last a few nights.

    Speaking of soaps........that gorgeous wooden bowl in my pictures this month - the one holding up the Arko lid? That was a raffle win from a couple of raffles ago. From the skilled hands of @jtspartan. And it's still empty. Because so much of my soap, as in all of it really, comes in plastic tubs, or are refills for my Fat and Tabac bowls, I really haven't figured out a soap to put in that bowl to use it. Any suggestions? That's right, boys and girls, I'm in need of some ENABLING HELP HERE!!! What great, fantastic, or otherwise highly recommended soap that I may not have ever tried would work in that fantastic hand made bowl? I await your suggestions.

    Have a great Thursday!

    Tomorrow's shave is with the magic blade holding the personal record for shaves with a blade. No stropping, no tricks. I swear it's made by Dwarven lords and Elven magicians or something. I probably jinxed it with my praise. I'm hoping to get at least a few more shaves out of it.
