    Christmas Eve shave
    Soap tabula rasa dark lavender, badger brush finest Alfredo Miguel, razor Guillermo Hoppe 8/8 Solingen, after shave tabac.
    Exquisite soap in its aroma, a frothy cream generated without any work, with this brush caress, the singing razor and a soft edge that this famous artisan forged before being devoured by the giant Henckels. We crown this with one of my favorite lotions. Ready for dinner. Rating 6/5. Merry Christmas.

    Weber SS
    Astra SP (7)
    Simpson Chubby 2 Super
    MdC shave soap

    Alum, Thayers Lavender witch hazel, unrefined shea butter, and Fine L'Orange Noir aftershave

    I completed two passes plus a few touch-ups this morning for a very close Christmas Eve shave. The Astra SP blade lasted seven shaves, as did all the other Russian blades in my current rotation. The Chubby 2 whipped up mountains of MdC lather, and the Fine L'Orange Noir aftershave was a nice finish.

    Merry Christmas!

    Tonight's shave was with a nice big Sheffield blade. I had a smooth 2 pass shave, no touch-ups, that left me with a DFS. Zero issues, just a solid performing razor.

    Razor- George Wostenholm & Son's. Celebrated IXL Razor. Washington Works, Sheffield.
    Brush- Omega Boar
    Soap- Arko/Sandalwood
    Aftershave- Vintage Avon Spicy.

    Razor - Delta Echo New LC
    Blade - [​IMG] (2)
    Soap - Jeeves of Hudson Street Bay Rum
    Brush - Stirling Synthetic, Pro Style
    Post - Alum, Nivea Original

    A quieter day here I see. You'd think it was a holiday or something!

    A nice Christmas Eve shave tonight with the setup from last night. Changed to the Jeeves with Stirling brush to make mountains of lather and settled for two passes and a light touchup. No reason to push it tonight. Ended with a nice DFS, though the alum was just a touch warm. Sometimes the Ladas, or any Super Stainless blade, can rub me just a tad the wrong way. Still extremely smooth and no complaints. I added the Nivea to the final step just to cool things off and enjoy the feel.

    Here's wishing everyone a very blessed evening and day tomorrow. I fully expect things to be slow for a bit until we get past the holiday. Enjoy your family time. One note - we are oh so close....and I mean very, very, very close to breaking the all time record for number of posts in a month here. We'll pass it before you know it! Have a great evening!
