    SOTD : 1st April 2021.

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Nivea Men DEEP CLEAN Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Cien ~ PURE Fragrance Free Sensitive Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Lider Turkish Boar.
    Face Lather.
    Soap : Derby Shave Stick.
    Blade: Shark Super Stainless .(D2)
    Razor: Weishi 2.0 Adjustable. (Settings) wtg 5, atg + pick ups 6.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus,Tea Tree, Essential Oils. +3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel)./Aloe Vera Gel./ Gummy ~ Traditional Turkish Tobacco Cologne.


    Early morning shave,

    "white rabbit white rabbit white rabbit!"

    Last outing of the Shark Super Stainless blade to finish my shaving week & month off using various Lord DE blades...

    The Silver Star Super Stainless & Lord Platinum Class are my favourite blades from the lord camp however, the Asco & Shark Super stainless are the smoothest out of them which is my preference in a blade over sharpness. The longevity of the Silver Star Super Stainless & Lord Platinum Class, which i am convinced are the same blade" in different covers? have a nice balance of efficiency & smoothness....Long story short, each of the blades from the Lord camp have gave acceptable shaving results with no intermittent quality problems throughout the month.

    The Weishi 2.0 Adjustable/Shark Super Stainless blade duo was a real smooth efficient combo...The Weishi Adjustable performance on the higher settings work wonderfully.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...A great shave to finish my shaving week...Finishing the shave off in style with a generous splash of Gummy ~ Traditional Turkish Tobacco Cologne.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    I guess you guys caught me: I should have found something more credible...

    A routine shave that reminds me of times gone by: a scent (now almost vanished) of almond and cologne.
    The nose can be a time machine! (in my case a limo!).

    Futur v. Model T
    In honor of Godzilla v Kong, I decided to pit these two razors against each other and six days growth. Both destroyed my stubble with ease and in comfort. I used Tabac because it never fails. I asked my wife to determine which side of my face was smoothest, and she could not tell the difference. If I was forced to choose one, I think I would lean slightly to the Futur because I like it's heft.

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Barbasol Shave Cream
    Bunny B-400 by Tom
    TiBr Wabbit
    Personna Injector
    Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB

    The Barbasol Shave Cream lathered well with the Bunny B-400 by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the TiBr Wabbit razor with a Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Nice shave with a new (to me) Stirling scent. Two passes and close enough for a 4 day old blade.
