    Menthol Monday:

    • EJ 89L
    • Gillette super thin platinum (3)
    • vintage Rubber Set boar
    • VanWilder SS
    • home boosted Old Spice
    Holy frozen tundra Batman! Great shave all the way around today folks!

    4/5 blades.

    Got the R41 from Jeff today so I'm gonna spend the whole next week with it and see. I already loaded up a Voshkod in it for tomorrow. I completely see where the comments come looks really intimidating with that blade sitting there staring at you like that. I'm sure it'll be fine :scared001:

    Hi Dmitry, what do you think of the Wilkinson bowl? For me it has not enough skin care. So I avoid it.
    But what is even worse is the Italian version. You can see it here Veeery strange scent and even less skincare.

    Happy Tuesday From Florida!

    Hot Shower
    RAB Scuttle
    Copperhat Horse
    Tabac SC
    Strivel Adjustable - Set On 4
    Feather (1)
    Cold Water Rag
    Eveline Aloe ASG
    Tabac AS

    3 Passes = meh, better than goo and carts, but not an absolute stellar shave either. I was not sure what to expect with this Strivel. It has a weird adjusting mechanism. To move the blade up or down, you turn the knob and then the blade tray moves up and to one side... weird. I had to clip one of the notches out of the blade in order to make it fit in the razor. I will shave with it again on another setting and see if it makes a difference.

    The Copperhat Custom Horse is a great brush! Thanks Brad!

    Have a great day Ya'll!

    I'm just loving this razor, such a close shave. The Anherb went a LONG way in cooling me down this morning. It sure is hot and humid this week! :happy005:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Personna day 5
    Bozzano Aloe Vera SC
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme AS
    Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme EDT

    To be very honest, I'm not too gung-ho about this Bozzano Aloe cream. Sure, it lathers very well, smells quite nice, etc, but it seemed to leave my skin feeling a bit dry. The Yohji Yamamoto aftershave and eau de toilette are discontinued since a few years - I have these 2 bottles hanging around, but when they're empty, I'll really miss them. Here is a picture of the Bozzano Aloe stuff. ;):biggrin: creme-de-barbear.jpg

    Razor - 1958 TV Superspeed
    Blade - Personna RI
    Brush - SOC
    Soap - EJ Sea Buckthorn
    AS - Proraso White ASB

    The shave went really well. I am really attached to the TV superspeeds as it was the razor I learned to shave on. The EJ had a wonderful scent that made the shave most welcome. I have recently had problems keeping lather in my SOC (its like it refuses to load)...but this happens from time to time so I'm not too worried. I chose my Proraso, just because and after I put it on, I thought to myself "Ah! It was definitely a Proraso morning!". It was a great shave!

    Shave Of The Day ~ August 23rd

    • TSD Iced SubZero Preshave Balm ~ :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:
    • Hot Shower
    • Vie-Long Zurito Horse Hair Brush
    • Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Almond Oil Shaving Cream
    • Clix Razor
    • Voskhod Blade ~ Day 4
    • Thayers Witch Hazel/Osage Rub Blend
    • Master Bay Rum A/S Splash
    I think my first Voskhod blade is finished after today's shave, it wasn't really pulling or tugging it just didn't seem to be cutting the whiskers, so I had too many rough spots when I was done. I'll load up my L6 with a new Voskhod tomorrow and see how long a blade lasts in it.

    The C&E SAO cream was a real treat, providing a very luscious lather, and unfortunately another great discontinued cream.
