    Thanks. No lathe for me. This is what I have done without one though. Brush Fabrication Disorder

    Yesterday I used AOS Sandalwood and confirmed my belief that it lacked in the cushioning I wish for in my lather. Today I combined the AOS Sandalwood with some Le Pere Lucien and had much, much better lather. It was slightly less slick than yesterday, but I did not add any glycerin today. The amount of slickness was not an issue. Unfortunately, today I also finished the last feather blade in my possession. 3 passes and very smooth.

    Saturdays shave
    New month new soap or rather shaving cream this time. These are the last if the new products.
    To day I used trumpers Spanish leather. A bit of irritation but I'm hoping it was technique rather than product cos I really like the scent.

    Razor - Pils
    Brush - Pilsson synthetic
    Lather - Trumpers Spanish Leather
    Blade - Vokshod
    Aftershave - Old Spice

    The wife and I are stepping out soon, so I'll post tomorrow's shaving plans now!

    Sunday morning:

    Neutrogena Men Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Large Horsehair Barbershop
    Super Speed/SuperMax Blue day 7
    Stirling Black Ice SS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Gold Bond Moisturizer :love055: :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Mennen Skin Bracer AS :love055: :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:

    Ahhhhh, the smell of black licorice with a nice hit of menthol - that's the best way to describe the Black Ice soap. It lathers like a charm, and gives the typically brilliant skincare which Rod's soaps are known for. The Gold Bond has become my number one favourite balm, even though all it really is is a mentholated skin lotion without even a real scent. The Skin Bracer is a must-have at all times for my aftershave rotation. This SuperMax Blue seemed to get dull a little faster than my other ones - let's hope it'll do the job right! ;) :D
