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. Plus....it's a purty little thing.
Weishi Chrome/new Sharp
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.
@Tom--mein lieber Freund, komm oft mehr, ein Fremder bist du nicht. Es freut Uns immer dir zu sehen!
Pirates Cove Bay Rum
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
TGIF: Musgo Real Lime preshave soap / Parker 91r / Lord Cool blade d1 / VDH boar brush / Arko Shave Stick / Old Spice aftershave
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
Gillette thin bar handled NEW
7 O'clock Sharp Edge
Knotty Badger Best
Omega soft soap
Aqua Velva Ice Balm
The thin handled Gillette NEW was the first DE razor I ever used.
TSD Almond SS
Finally, a blade that works in both the Superspeed and the Knack. After the holidays I'll be getting a bulk order of the Astra blades.
39c Slant w/Feather - d5
Nancy Boy cream, hand-slathered
WWR / Alum Block / CWR
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.
How's that ice balm Rodd?
Proraso Pre Shave
Red Tip SS
Treet Classic 1st Shave
Simpsons Duke 3 BB
1st Shave with the 'Duke', also 1st shave with the Red tip. We may have a winner here.
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.
Brush: Duke 1 Best
Soap: Penahigon's English Fern
A/S: German Pitralon splash followed by Proraso balm
Edt: Diptyque Tam Dao
Day 3 Final Oil Pass - Dr. Burt's Vitamin E Body & Bath Oil
OK, I did this one on a lark. Too thick.
That leaves me with:
Apricot Kernel Oil
Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Pre-Shave Oil
Merkur Futur / Gillette Swede blade
Simpson Tulip 2
Alt Innsbruck AS; Clinique Post-Shave Healer
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.
