Well it’s rainy on this Thursday morning but oh well though not a tropical scent it sure reminds me of holidays none the less. Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic is an incredible soap period and that icy goodness must be felt to be appreciated. Just awesome stuff and the heavily mentholated matching AS is so good. It’ll make your fingers tingle for a few hours after you slap it on your melon!
Karve CB with the C SB plate and a GSB is a recipe for a smooth and easy shave! Great weight, balance and it just looks so good! I enjoy this razor and haven’t had a single bad shave with it right out the box. Have the A, B OC plates and the B,C,D SB plates and they are all excellent.
Reached for a brush I haven’t grabbed in a while in the APShave Co. 28mm Flat Top synth. The butterscotch handle is great looking but the brush is really nice for whipping up a lather and either painting it on or splaying it about like normal. Quite enjoyable really. I have to leave it out for a bit so I don’t forget about again.
A Thursday brings with it hope we made it past Wednesday but we aren’t quite to Friday! Still a wonderful three pass shave and an ultra smooth finish! Spritzed on some B&BW Citron and off we go! Stay safe and enjoy your shaves!

Yes, I did. Pretty much all the ones I use that aren't obviously a commercial product are turned by me. The resins were poured by me as well, but to be honest I prefer working with wood.

awesome shave and pic Gus,hope to see that fine flavor here soon..
I had to push myself a little to choose this razor today as near wedges and wedges generally don’t do it for me. But this near wedge was recently honed by @gssixgun and I was pleasantly surprised by the shave when it came back. Yup, another simply wonderful shave today.

If you get the chance to acquire the Aquamarine, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by both products.
Love the shape of that razor, Karl.
I see you received the T&S. How is the scent? I hope you enjoyed it. I’m still digging my Rainforest all this week. Such a great soap.
