    Good morning!!

    - 3/8" Emil Jansen straight
    - Shavemac silvertip brush
    - Shave De Luxe shaving oil
    - Nivea Men shaving cream
    - Aco after shave
    - K-Classic after shave balm
    - Azarro Silver Black EdT

    Have a nice day everyone and take care...
  5. After the usual 1-2 minutes hot towel prep:

    Shavemac 22mm silvertip
    30's style open comb Aristocrat/ Iridium
    DR Harris Marlborough SS
    Lucky Tiger AS
    Tann Rokka 'Aki' EdT

    My first time using an open comb razor, and man.........what an excellent shave. It's got a sort of aggressive feel to it, but still very comfortable on my face. These are different than the later models (which I don't care for).

    This thing left me with an extremely smooth face, with zero irritation. Hehe, I'm surprised I enjoyed using this razor so much.'s a purty little thing.

    Noxzema lather S/C
    Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
    Burt's Bees Bay Rum A/S balm
    Black Garter cologne

    although the Weishi is so gentle and forgiving, it still gives a very good shave if you take a little extra time. ;) :D

    @Tom--mein lieber Freund, komm oft mehr, ein Fremder bist du nicht. Es freut Uns immer dir zu sehen! :D

    VDH Boar Brush
    Thayers Rose Witch Hazel
    Aqua Velva Classic After Shave

    The Personna blades picked up at Walmart for $1.76 and they give a nice close shave without irritation. What a bargain and no shipping involved. All IMHO

    A very kind gentleman on another board sent me the Parker 91r to replace the 89r that I ruined when I dropped it. A great razor that gave me a fantastic shave

    My Nik Is Sealed styptic roll-on

    The shave felt so good I didn't want to stop. So I didn't even feel or notice the nick by my adam's apple till I had rinsed my face. The alum block AND styptic roll-on didn't seem to make much of a difference. :ashamed001 Ah well ... occupational hazard, I guess. :D

    Friday 12/12 . . .

    • [*]Prep: Rite Aid Skin Cleansing Cream & Hot Towel
      [*]Brush: Knotty Badger refurbished Ever Ready 300 Silvertip
      [*]Cream: T&H 1805
      [*]Razor: '12 Ever Ready with chain link handle - Nickel
      [*]Blade: Ted Pella PTFE coated SE (shave 8)
      [*]Oil Pass: Leisureguy's Last-Pass Shave Oil
      [*]A/S: Thayer's Lavender Witch Hazel Toner & Pinuad Clubman A/S
      [*]EDT: TSD Bamboo & Teak

      [*]Result: Great BBS shave today. The 1805 make the slickest lather I have ever experienced. But all that slickness didn't really make a difference in the shave. I would like it and the thick long lasting lather of the 1805 if it were not so darn expensive. Now, the Pella blade finally gave out on the head shave. Got dull very fast once it decided to go away. No blood again today.

    Merkur Futur / Gillette Swede blade
    Simpson Tulip 2
    Tabac soap
    Alt Innsbruck AS; Clinique Post-Shave Healer
    Knize 10

    A weird combination for me today. Despite all the raves, I've never thought that Tabac was anywhere near as good as the Trumper and Harris soaps. It's just kind of OK.
