    Monday February 3rd SOTN

    The Enoch was calling to me... so I did a quicker 2.5 pass shave with brushless Clubman Cream. The Schick proline continues to remain a very sharp blade and seems to have tons of life left in it. I guess it's good that I bought a case of them from Japan (should last me years!). The proline will bite if you aren't careful, but will also reward you with a very efficient shave if you respect it. Happy shaves all!

    Razor: Leresche 77
    Blade: Super Iridium
    Brush: Plisson
    Soap: Boots
    AS: Florida Water

    This was my 3rd shave with the Leresche 77 ( on loan from @jmudruck ) I find this to be on the mild side. This shave was better than the first 2 by a nice margin. I was able to find the correct angle and keep it.

    From the looks of head geometry one would think it would need a steeper angle. I found that not true. When I found the angle, there it was blade feel. Very subtle but there. I was able keep and find it for all 3 passes. This resulted in a DFS++ shave no cleanup needed.

    A very unique design. I really like and am intrigued by French designed razors. Works of art.

    Have a great week.

    Great shave summary, Tom. I have a 77 and it is a great shaver as is the 51 which I’m sure you’ve shaved with also. The French built efficiency into their designs.

    The sweet spot hshave angle) is different, as it’s an OC, but it is every bit as efficient.

    Razor - 1959 (E4) Gillette Fatboy
    Blade - [​IMG] (2)
    Soap - Stirling Black Ice
    Brush - 30DC Meet UP LE w/ TGN Grade A Silvertip
    Post - Alum

    Wow! It got late fast tonight. I've been talking to Jennifer and just taking it easy and remembered I hadn't posted yet. So, here we go. MENTHOL MONDAY!!! Soap for tonight was Stirling Black Ice. Menthol and Anise - which gives you cold black licorice! Great scent and of course, it's Stirling, so one of my favorite lathers. I used the Meet UP brush with the Silvertip for a luxurious and rich lather and feel to the process. Back to the Fatboy and Sharp Star that I started two days ago. Three passes to absolute perfection and another day is done. I started my day earlier this morning with an overdue head shave. Used the Merkur 23c with a Sharp Star and Soap Commander Courage as an extra shave to eat a bit more of it up. I'm cue ball smooth from that one as well. Have a great Tuesday!!

    Ya know, it is crazy to see that Eskimos Tuxedo has actually been used, I initially asked Rod about it and he put it in production, I looked a couple days ago and saw it’s no longer offered.
    Cool to be a part of that
