    Hembree Not as pretty smelling picture today. For some reason I forgot to get one this morning.

    Essence by Tedelus
    Feather Pro Guard (4)
    Razorock 400 synthetic brush
    Tabac shave soap
    Royal Copenhagen cologne

    Very nice Tabac lather this morning. I thought I had added too much water but I finally ending up with some awesome thin Tabac lather.

    Another nice run with the Essence. Two on the cheeks and three on the neck with no blood loss and very little feedback from the alum.

    A little witch hazel followed by the Royal Copenhagen and this one was finished up.

    I hope everyone has an enjoyable Tuesday!

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger
    AutoStrop A1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Not that pleased with my shave this morning. It was fine along the facial area and sideburns, as well as at Porcupine Alley, but once I moved down to Cactus Nation, things went bad. Especially at West Cactus. I think that instead of doing a "Y" shave down at Cactus(like @wristwatchb showed me), I'm going straight north-to-south along the sides(I already do it that way down the middle). It's hard to do the "Y" the further south I get. I sure learned that this morning. The Royal Copenhagen was tough to get into my cupped hand without some spilling over the side. Such a nice smell, that RC. I'm afraid this one gets a Somewhat Excellent.

    Cooper-Vib'Raz/BIC. The beauty of the Vib'Raz cap is that it can match with so many different plates to slightly tweak the razor geometry. The Conrad/Cooper/Barbasol NFH guard has a but more curve which increases exposure if not nearly as much as the Dart. Results rival the Gem Bullet Tip which I used for pick ups which were almost non-existent.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice Tuesday presentation Gary! I'm just wondering. What's your take on the Tabac? Once I'm done the Proraso challenge I just might consider another product line.
