    Thursday February 27th SOTN

    10th Occam's Enoch / Schick Proline shave and counting... As long as no pressure is applied, these blades are smooth as silk. This case of blades is going to last me years at this rate . I'm shaved and smell great for bed. Happy shaves all.

    IMG_20200226_202304_077_resize_6.jpg Maiden voyage with Rex Ambassador. Wilkinson blade. Decent good shave for first time with this rig. Tuning it in is kinda like an old tube radio until you find that sweet spot.

    Friday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Cremo Shave Stick
    B-400 Badger
    Stick Schick
    Cella Balsamo Dopobarba

    The Cremo Shave Stick face-lathered well with the B-400 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Stick Schick with a Schick blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella Balsamo Dopobarba. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Edit: Thanks to @Ron R for alerting me to errors in my description of today's SOTD.

    Following my first shave with a TTO razor (the Gillette Slim) I went with the Gillette Flair Tip Super Speed (also won in the TSD raffle, graciously donated by @Tommynick).

    This happens to be a birth year razor so I figured I would shave close to the way dad did..... Sort of.

    When I use canned foam I usually add a little water in a bowl and apply with a brush, (an action that I can thank those dedicated fans of goo blooming stuff for the CT sticker).

    I used the beloved Shave Den Spirit of St Louis Limited Edition 2019 meet up brush with the deluxe luxury elite flattop knot, a brush known for finely whipped lather.

    Been on the Personna Blue kick trying to use up the sale priced $5/100 pack that many folks love and get great life from, but I have considered a 'one and done' blade.

    First pass was sluggish and sticky so I cheated and rubbed a Derby stick on before brushing up the fluff. Brought the glide in perfectly.

    Followed my normal shave pattern for perfect results. I am very surprised by this tool. I'll have to do more evaluating, but this shave has this old razor bucking for the top slot. No wonder people like these so much. I can and have used Personna Blues for multiple shaves, but this razor is the first that I felt like I wanted to.

    Compared to the Slim, I sensed greater edge feel, more intuitive angle, and superior audible feedback. I'll be looking forward to more experimenting.

    Finished up with the Aqua Velva Ice Blue that left me smelling fresh, like dad always did.

    Friday morning:

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Shark day 7
    Bundubeard Rooi Afrikaner SS
    Bull Dog Moisturizer
    Musgo Real Classic AS Splash
    Azzaro Wanted By Night EdP

    My dear friend Jaco makes some of the BEST soaps I’ve ever used in my entire life - this Rooi Afrikaner is tallow based and it has a mild, but very nice herbal scent, it lathers so rich, thick, with lots of slickness, and it’s so skin friendly. The Bull Dog moisturizer gave me great soothing, and the Musgo Real aftershave’s scent is lovely but it doesn’t clash with a fragrance. Although the Shark blade has reached the end it gave me one last hoorah with a brilliant BBS shave!

    Wishing you all a great weekend![​IMG]

    Outstanding shave, first since Tuesday. My wife got me a new Beaudelaire set so I had to try it out. I'm very impressed. The splash is much nicer than the previous version - not as much sting and more soothing.
