    Tabac today. Always a winner! I slipped a new Rapira Swede into the Slim. I got an excellent smooth, close, and nick free shave. I finished with Tabac EdC.

    Prep: hot shower
    Razor: WW2 Gillette Tech
    Blade: Bolzano Superinox (day 1)
    Brush: Vie-Long
    Soap: Proraso Green
    Passes: 2 (WTG, XTG)
    Post: Dove Men hydrate+

    Great shave today! The only thing that could have made it better would be not having to go into work. I'm back to going through my sample pack of blade, and today started the Bolzano's rotation. This is one of the more expensive blades I have, and I was eager to see if the price was justified. After a two pass BBS with a hint of irritation, this blade is not looking over priced. Now to see how long it lasts...

    Yeah, I find that the camera giggle can be a real problem. The giggling really causes a lot of camera shake. ;)

    Prep: Gaia face scrub
    Oil: Shave Secret
    Brush: 20mm Whipped dog set deep
    Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery
    Razor: EverReady 1912
    Blade: Gem Blue Star
    soap: Palmolive shave stick mushed with glycerin and Rose of Bulgaria
    Post: alum sprayed on
    Witch Hazel: Generic Rose scented

    I grabbed my palmolive today instead of my usual french soap mix. The palmolive was originally a shave stick, but since I don't like using shave sticks, I mushed it into a container along with some Rose of Bulgaria and Glycerin. I like the palmolive, but just don't like using shave sticks in the way designed. I ended up with a nice 3 pass shave that left my face feeling smooth and soft.

    Prep: Hot shower with L'Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash, home made PSO
    Razor: Gillette Senator, H. Boker Master Razor straight razor
    Blade: Astra SP (7)
    Brush: Vie Long Horse Hair 23mm knot
    Soap: Cella
    After: Home made ASB, Aqua Velva classic ice blue after shave
    Cologne: Aqua H2O

    I did a "one pass and done" this morning. I had no reason to rush, but found myself rushing. I ended up with a nice nick under my chin from the straight. The Cella face lathered well. The Aqua H2O was a nice finish to an almost Darn Fine Shave.

    Have a blessed day!!
