    A closer shave comparison than what I was expecting. Both extremely smooth operators that feel awesome on the skin. But, I think the BBS is the winner (for me) by a hair! Can’t lose with either one if you want a smooth, comfortable daily shaver. A great day and awesome shaves to all my shaving Bro’s.... :happy093:

    Good morning friends. A fine three pass shave today with the PAL Injecto-Matic. Excellent, smooth, creamy lather from La Toja shave stick. I finished with Brut. Enjoy your day friends.

    A fantastic night!
    I fought with the A/C: why if I set it on 27° (80° F) it's freezing cold?
    It's hot at 27°!
    Which temperature should I set it on so I don't have to turn it on and off?
    Isn't there a biocybernetic app that turns it off when I'm getting cold and on when I get hot?

    If the conditioner is off I wake up for the heat and if it's on, for the cold.
    Winter will come back, but so far it's a torture!

    But the shaving was better than I expected: I hadn't used this blade for about a year and I remembered it to be worse, in fact I had a backup SOC, but it wasn't necessary, although I had the feeling that one side was more scratchy.

    It's not the first time I've had this feeling with a blade and I'm afraid it won't be the last one...

    The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #414 silvertip brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels 5/8 gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I love the Persian Jar. Not a Tabac fan, though, but shot's great.
    And intrigued by the Alt Innsbruck and its vintage looks.
    I never smelled it, but it recalls the city in winter, in my memory: a beautiful gothic town with rococo stucco decorations!
    Very fascinating...

    Thank you Sergio. Since you are so close to Tirol, it might be worth picking up a bottle. Then you can do some mountain climbing and some yodeling.

    I am actually thinking about a vacation in Austria, next October...

    Yodeling? I usually do it when I want to know what time it is, at night...
