    Saturday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #423 Two-band Badger
    47 Gillette Super Speed
    Astra SP
    Humphrey's Witch Hazel
    Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC

    The Musgo Real Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #423 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 47 Gillette Super Speed Razor with an Astra Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel and Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/King C. Gillette day 4
    MSC Ruby Forest SS
    Nivea Cool Kick ASB
    Thayer’s Lavender Witch Hazel
    English Leather AS Splash

    My second time using the Ruby Forest soap and I think it’s absolutely brilliant. The scent is so gorgeous - it’s an exact copy of Dunhill Red Desire, the tallow formula promotes such thick, rich, super slick lather, and the postshave feeling is so comfortable. The Thayer’s Lavender witch hazel gave me a good soothing, relaxing, and gentle sensation when I splashed it on, the Nivea Cool Kick balm felt wonderful, and the English Leather aftershave smells so lovely - even my wife told me that. Another awesome three pass BBS shave that I really enjoyed!

    Have a great weekend - be well and safe!

    My wife and I are scheduled to have dinner with an old church friend and his wife. We recently learned she’s been diagnosed with Lewes Body Dementia, the same disease that killed Robin Williams. We thought at first it was Parkinson’s, like me, and given how long I’ve been living with the condition had the same expectations for her. She’s a lovely woman with 7 grandchildren, and my wife’s best friend. This will probably be our last meal together as she is deteriorating rapidly. As Kurt Vonnegut said, “and so it goes!”

    My shave in preparation for the evening’s event this morning featured my favorite barber’s razor, the Tedalus Essence fitted with a Feather Super AC blade on its third use. This remarkable razor shaves exactly like my best straights. The shave angle, heft, feel and balance in hand requires a deft touch just as a well-honed straight would. The joy of this razor is the tacit understanding that it’s an actual benchmark for sharpness that I use with my straight razors. This morning’s two and a half pass mug shave did not disappoint, and left me glassine smooth.

    I initially grabbed for my Eclipse Red Ring, on of the first adjustables, but instead decided on a Famex shave. Jeff Mudrick’s (@jmudrick) patent research revealed two initial French patents in 1929 and 1932 for the fourteen cage bar model, and a final patent in 1937 for the seven bar model seen here. Having never shaved with the fourteen bar model, I can only speak for my two Famex razors, both 7 bar. The razor is handle adjustable, and delivers on its most aggressive setting a very close shave as it did for my noggin this morning. Two ATG passes put the baby to bed leaving me happily velveteen from dome to shoulders.

    RAZOR: Tedalus Essence (Mug), Famex (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather Super AC (Mug), Feather DE (Dome)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: JR Boar
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Krampert’s Frostbite AS Splash.
