    Love the Marvel razor! So easy for me to use and get a fantastic shave. And the FS/WD boar is wonderful as well. Well broken in and makes a fine lather. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Friday's Shave

    Cold Water Wash
    Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Jayaruh #313
    Open Faced Damaskeene
    ShaVeZee SE
    English Leather

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #313 badger brush. I did two passes with the Open Faced Damaskeene razor with a ShaVeZee SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. I also did a Fuzzy today. I applied witch hazel after the second pass and did a touch up pass. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with English Leather AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
