Ikon Tech with Yintal cap/Treet. Not really a fan of the Tech, effective but not very comfortable. Gets a bit tuggy on my head.

Feb. 2020 closer.
Inspired by one dedicated Stirling Fan over in the Stirling Exchange thread, @chevyguy has lead me to citrus bliss. The soap combo from samples is Glacial Lemon Chill mixed with Lime. The menthol carries well, and I sense more lemon than lime. Refreshing!
First shave with the Schick Krona raffle prize as graciously donated by @John Beeman. My experience with TTO tooling is limited, but I'm going to rank this closely behind the Gillette Flair Tip. Maybe a tad more aggressive and more capable of delivering a blade binkie. I like the lower weight and longer handles on n/s moves.
The tall and dark synthetic by WCS delivered perfect suds in the Symmetrical Pottery bowl that was not made for cereals.
I didn't have Lemon AS so I had to settle for Glacial Lemony Orange and Menthol Lime. Fun, Fresh and clean.
My new experiences with the TTO raffle winnings is going to bring some focus shaves my way.

Spectacular shave today, with one of my favorite makers. I had a very smooth, and noisy , 2 pass shave, that left me BDBS. Zero issues. Like I said one of my favorite makers. I've yet to find one that wasnt fantastic.

Here we go, boys and girls. Final shave of February Favorites. Staying with the New SC Deluxe and Voskhod. Taking the Semogue 620 boar to the Soap Commander to try and whip it out of existence. I'm beginning to think that's just a pipe dream. I worked that soap until I couldn't work it anymore and there's still a ring, still not broken, still going. We'll take that little task into March with us. As for the shave - three passes of comfortable smoothness that ended in a BBS. No better way to finish a month than like that.
Hey y'all - it's been another fantastically wonderful month!! Thanks to everyone for your continued participation and especially for all the work and help with the newbies! We're still growing, and just because I'm not opening up March doesn't mean I've abdicated my Czar's throne! Can't wait to see what Chris @Bama Samurai gets us into in March. I'm looking forward to seeing the master back at work. Have a fantastic Sunday!
awesome shave and pic Neal..
