    I won this Wosty Pipe in a TSD lottery and it seemed like a fitting way to close out the year and decade. It’s a top notch razor. :happy036:

    The last shave of 2019 so I wanted some good gear that I know would produce the goods! The Merkur Progress never disappoints and loaded with an Astra SP is a stellar combo!

    Stirling Agar won the right in my books to be the New Years Eve shave....and yes, I jammed my beak in it about a dozen times before making the call! LOL

    So a slow and wonderfully close, three pass BBS shave. Topped off with D&G The One!!! Happy New Year!! Off to dinner with the Bride!

    See you all in 2020, take care and safe travels!

    Pinaud Clubman AS

    What better way to start off a new year than with Williams Mug Shaving Soap. My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Williams Mug Soap face lathered well with Jayaruh #30 Brush. I did two passes and a cleanup with the Schick Repeating Type C razor with a Schick Proline blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
