    Arko Adjustable April

    April 29
    Razor - 1960 (F4) Gillette Toggle (9)
    Blade - [​IMG] (2)
    Soap - Arko
    Brush - I*V10 Hybrid
    Post - Alum

    Two shaves left in April and they'll both be with the Toggle, starting with this one. Also Arko, of course and tonight we have the I*V10 Hybrid brush. Couldn't resist letting it at the Arko again. Makes lathering ridiculously easy. The Rapira PL is still as sharp as the first use and as smooth as well. Three great passes to a BBS finish with quiet alum. Yep. I like it. If you're a 30DC member please read the rest of the post. If you're not on 30DC, feel free to look at the pretty picture. Thanks!

    I'll be handling Post One for May to open up the month but that will be either very very late tonight (or early in the morning) or tomorrow evening. Those of you waiting on the new month to open just be patient. Working on it. I will announce, though, that we are modifying May a bit this year. As most of you know, May usually equals MAYhem - where the stunt shavers and over the top shaving items that were never meant to shave come out to play. We are going to change things around this year due to the current situation out there and do something on a different note. Now is probably not the time for doing things that are risky and potentially dangerous, even if that is entertaining for many. I hope you'll like what we have planned in its place. More on that when I'm done with the intro.

    Thanks for continuing to support the 30DC with over 8000 posts so far!! You guys are the best. And, in a time when there are a million other things to think about, we're still here doing what we do. Makes me proud. Have a great Thursday!!

    Thanks to @BBS-1, we swapped RR Hawk V3 baseplates so I could try the OC version. A very efficient shave resulted with a Feather Professional blade with a couple slight weepers easily managed by alum. I'm going to try a Schick proline tomorrow. Happy shaves all.
