    Very cool Danny. I have a R52 Concave razor I have used once. I need to take it for extended run.

    Awesome shave!

    That little brush you sent me is a fantastic lather maker - thanks again so much!

    Friday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Frank Mini Brush
    Super Speed/King C. Gillette day 10
    Gada Original SC
    Bull Dog Moisturizer
    MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

    This Frank mini brush is so cute and such a great performer - it was sent to me as a gift by a friend of mine and it has an Israeli flag and a Canadian flag painted on it. I believe it’s a synthetic and it’s one hell of a lather maker. The Gada Original cream is from Lebanon and it’s so cheap, it smells soapy and nice, the lather is awesome, and thanks to the chamomile in it the skincare is so soothing as well as comfortable. The Bull Dog moisturizer is such a great balm, and Fernando’s gorgeously scented Vintage Spice aftershave was a delightful finish. What a wonderful three pass BBS shave this was!

    Have a good weekend - be well and safe!

    My local CVS carries Bull Dog paraphernalia. I'll give it a closer look next time I'm there. Great brush.

    Friday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
    47 Gillette Aristocrat
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Humphrey's Witch Hazel
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 47 Gillette Aristocrat Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel and Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I apologize to all my shave brothers and sisters for not posting the last two shaves, but besides losing a dear animal companion on Tuesday, I also lost a good friend’s wife to pancreatic cancer the next day. I’ve been spending the last two days with him, bringing over food and spiritus frumenti. After 7 decades we begin to lose the underpinnings (our wives) who provide the social platforms (friends and re’ships) for our lives. My good friend feels lost and adrift without his companion of 48 years. I do get it having been there myself.

    Anyway, getting back to this morning’s shave. The German Import Act of 1879 put an end to the import of good Sheffield steel into Germany, and marked the rise of Solingen steel. This old 1840ish Boker & Co French Point cast steel blade always delivers a remarkable mug shave. I love the 9 Ball Slate touchup, just a few strokes followed by the constroption the night before. Two and a half passes, and I’m “smooth as a peach” to quote Hans, a Swedish shave bother. The Shake Sharp Mk 1.5 also delivered its usual two pass ATG noggin delight, leaving me velveteen smooth from shoulders to noggin.

    RAZOR: H. Boker & Co. French Point 9/16 (Mug), Shake Sharp Mk1.5
    BLADE: 2 Stacked Feather DE
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a heavy scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE LE #007 Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot
    CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature Scent
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Nancy Boy Signature Scent AS Balm
