    Bulgari Man in Black today. 20 seconds to load the RazoRock/Zenith Chubby Extra Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Gillette “Spoiler” SS in the Gillette NEW Long Comb. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Bulgari Man in Black EdT.

    Saturday morning:

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Derby
    Bundubeard Kudu’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Except for this past Tuesday when I went with the Body Shop cream I’ve been using Bundubeard soaps and do I ever LOVE them - this Kudu is a masterpiece in every way imaginable, with such a delightful scent as well as tremendous lather which gets thicker and thicker as you work it up, along with a very generous amount of menthol. It also has plenty of slickness to it so that it gives great blade glide and its postshave care is fantastic. The Prep added lots of cooling, moisturizing, and soothing, while the Alt Innsbruck gave me an extra icy cold menthol punch and although it smells great it never competes with any fragrance. The new Derby blade ensured a perfect BBS shave. [​IMG]

    How is the Omega Evo? Is it just like a high end badger, or is it something totally different?

    Saturday Straights' Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Vintage Life's Morning TOST
    Oscar11 synthetic
    Wilbert "Acme"
    PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm

    The Vintage Life's Morning TOST Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Oscar11 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Wilbert "Acme" straight gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thanks Fellas!

    I did get to look in between the panes late afternoon as the sun glare diminished. I can see a small white fragment of what I'm thinking was a slingshot marble.

    Good to know! That’s one razor I don’t need to consider! Have you shaved much with your LaResche 34? My 51 gives me great head shaves!

    Agreed! I shaved with the same Krona DE for half a century until it broke this past August. Paid $1.49 in 1969 for it. I should probably ask for my money back! ;)

    Oh, I'd take it back too! $1.49 in today's dollars is $12.23.

    Bad news though...the Rexall drug store you bought it from went belly up a few years ago.
