    Proraso Menthol Morning. The Blue pre-shave cream adds to the coolness of the Proraso Green. Proraso across the board!

    Razor - 1967 Gillette Slim set on 5
    Blade - Crown (fresh blade)
    Soap - Proraso Green menthol
    Pre-shave - Proraso Blue
    Brush - Simpson T3 Trafalgar
    Post - Thayers toner, Proraso balm
    Proraso AS

    Cool water face wash. Cool water for whipping lather. Nice 2-pass shave. WTG & ATG. No cuts, nicks or weepers! Alum bar gave zero feedback.

    As soon as it warms a bit, I am off to the Harley dealer to pick up a couple exhaust gaskets for the replacement exhaust Vance & Hines is sending. I am riding the bike. So nice to ride now.

    I hope all have a great day!

    Thursday's Shave
    zcws.jpg

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #188
    Schick Double Edge Razor
    Schick Super Chromium
    CWR
    Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS

    The Musgo Real Shaving Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #188 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick Double Edge Razor with a Schick Super Chromium Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    DE SOTD, August 4th 2022, Den diving /Archeology theme week, found this oddity at a antique store and was used during the 1930's, glass concaved hone strop for carbon blades for improving edge for more shaves Mfg during the dirty 30's.

    Razor : Yaqi dual flip-side razor with a Micromatic handle- Mfg 2020> excellent adjustable razor concept, flip 180 degrees and it mild on the comb side, the SB side is a nice mid range, made of a Zamak head that is well made, Very good results I get.
    Blade : Gillette silver blue(5) sharp & smoooth with good longevity, top tier blade for myself.,
    Soap :Razorock "The Dead Sea" croap- nice unique pick me up scent with excellent lather qualities. One of my favorites.
    Brush : Yaqi artic sky 24mm silvertip badger- excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Razorock The Dead Sea with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Yaqi Flipside with a GSB blade.

    How does the glass concave hone work? The box picture seems to show the guy with his finger on the blade on the middle of the concave surface.
