    Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap
    Tom's B-3 Badger Brush
    J.A. Henckels Rapide
    Henckels Wedge
    Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS

    The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap lathered well with Tom's B-3 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Razor with a Henckels Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 7
    Stirling Glacial Strawberry Lemonade SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
    Stirling Glacial Strawberry Lemonade AS Splash

    My God, I’m frozen solid after using this Glacial Strawberry Lemonade soap and aftershave. The soap has such a beautiful scent which is dominated by the strawberry - in fact I can’t really detect any lemony notes, the lather is so rich, slick, and protective, the menthol sensation is killer cold, and the skincare is A1. The Glacial Unscented balm soothes and moisturizes so well not to mention how cold it as, and the Glacial Strawberry Lemonade aftershave has the same delightful scent as the soap and the freeze it gives is off the charts. Three passes did the job superbly for me - another brilliant BBS shave which I enjoyed so much!

    Have a great Sunday - be well and safe [​IMG]

    Found some mags of Chicks at Salvation Army for $2 each. It's been probably three years since I've had an injector shave and I'd forgotten how easy and pleasant they are. I'm going to have to scrounge up another E2 now that I have a stock of reliable blades.
