Great one. One of PAA's best creations.
Gorgeous vintage razor and case.
How is this combo? Is that an aluminum DOC head or stainless steel? I assume it's aluminum with a titanium handle, so it's super lightweight?

This was yesterday's shave, but this website has been down and I couldn't reach it to post this until today. The shave was near perfect. I opened up a tiny pimple on my neck and got a spot of blood from that, but otherwise it was a perfect shave and felt great all day with zero irritation.

I'm about to take my bath and do my shave soon. With the deodorant and bath soap, I seal them in vacuum pack bags (the same used to store food in the freezer or preserve dry foods). This prevents the bath soap from fossilizing and losing scent and keeps the deodorant from drying out. I opened the seal on these to use today. Basically I only use the full vintage set on special days because these items are very rare and very hard to find or very expensive when available.

SOTD December 31, 2021
Pre-shave: Warm water
Lather: Hendrix Classics & Co Havana Breeze
Brush: Yaqi Timber Wolf
Razor: Qshave Adjustable (3)
Blade: Personna Lab Blue (new)
Post-shave: Nivea Sensitive balm
I just received this razor and blades today and thought I'd squeeze one more shave into 2021. The HC&C Havana Breeze is an intoxicating sweet tobacco scent, starting sugary sweet in the tub and then transitioning to a more tobacco forward fragrance once lathered. I thought perhaps the razor would be a little clumsy and vague due to the large head but that's not the case. The Personna blade was sharp and smooth and I ended a three-pass shave in DFS+ territory.
Happy New Year!
Does that mean a No-Buy 2022 is not in the cards for you, Paul?
