    Took a few days off from shaving since my face was getting irritation from the Feather blades. During the time off, I gave the super speed a nice clean and polish.
    Great 2 pass DFS today! Love these Personna Red blades. :love055:

    The SOTD photo looks OK to me. If you are referring to my avatar, those two 'legs' sticking out of my head belong to my friend. :)

    Thanks for letting me know. I'm not sure what's happening. The photo in my original SOTD post (and again below) looks right-side-up using Internet Explorer 11.

    Shave of the day

    Pre- Hot shower, Bulldog Original face wash, sandalwood bar soap

    [B)Soap/cream- Fitjar såpekokeri Isrose shaving soap[/B]

    Brush- Plisson synthetic

    Razor- Weber polished head all stainless steel

    Blade- Astra SP

    Post- Cold water rinse, Mentholated Pinaud clubman original aftershave lotion and Nivea sensitive aftershave balm

    First time using this soap…. wow! Easy to load, smells great and lathers like a champ! WOW, i regret not getting more of this soap. I detected a HINT of cooling effekt, but Im not sure. But wow it was a really great performer, slick and protective.

    If you can… get it.

    Finished off with mentholated Pinaud which is VERY nice, I have nailed the menthol amount in this =D

    VERY VERY nice shave today… And I was thinking, hmm maybe I’m to tired. LOL

    Today 03May15 another "No Shave Day".
    Being as I fell down the stairs last night (no I didn't break anything) I didn't even go outside.
    Take a couple of Happy Pills and a some Irish Coffee and life will be good, or I won't really care what happens.

    Hope the pain or soreness does not kick in half a day later like it does for me. That first step is a dozy for us "seasoned gents".

    That's why I didn't shave today. I fell down the stairs, at about 1825 hrs. on Saturday evening. (6:25 pm)I was going to shave this afternoon so I would not be too Crude, Rude or socially Unacceptable on Monday. I will probably shave tomorrow some time in the morning. I have an appointment on Tuesday so will probably shave in the late afternoon or before bed. By that time I have enough gowth to look real scruffy.

    SOTD 5-3-15

    Razor: ATT H1 plate with MR1 handle
    Blade: Platinum Lux (3)
    Soap: TSD (The Shave Den) Signature Scent
    Bowl: VDH
    Brush: VDH
    Post: Gentleman Jon Alum block

    Preshave was just face wash with warm water and post shave was rinse with warm water then some cold water splashes and pat dry, then apply the alum block

    Razor: As usual, no complaints! Liking the H! very much! Today was the 6th time using it and first for the Krono's handle which I also like..

    Blade: This is a good blade and one of my main go-to's so no issues at all!

    Soap: Second time with this soap and it is very nice stuff. Lathered easy and alot of it. Great slickness and protection! Post shave feel is very good! No issues at all AND I have pinpointed the scent! IT SMELLS LIKE CHAI TEA! Love the scent!

    Comments: Shave was very good and very close. I got a DFS easily and a BBS on most places but part of the neck area. No nick or irritation based on the Aum block. Another very good shave with no issues!

    Please feel free to leave comments on any items used as I enjoy reading them to see what others say about the gear I am using/trying out! Of course, YMMV!

    I'm a bit curious which VDH soap you are using. Deluxe or luxury?

    VDH is one if those soaps I want to try but shipping kills the "good price" part of it =P maybe someday someone I know travels to the U.S. hahaha
