    Saturday morning - something new:

    Nivea Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra day 6
    Rockwell SS
    Lubriderm Moisturizer
    Booster Polar Ice AS Splash

    This is a Canadian-made soap which my father-in-law bought me and he says it's pretty good. I like the scent of it so far and I can't wait to see how it performs. I love that Polar Ice aftershave
    so much!

    Note: this new soap is Rockwell, not Gordon!

    I can shave with most razors......but the R41 is particularly difficult for me I have probably used it less than 10 times in all the years I have owned it! Good to know there is still hope for me!

    That's rather baffling. Does it still smell the same as Timwcic's does?

    I assume it smells the same; Indiana Jones's Jacket? It was suggested that the plastic bottles were not the best place to keep Pinaud products, so I moved mine to glass right after I got it. Exposure to sunlight could affect the color.

    For Saturday's shave, I might as well essay it out, since my post-shave today was a disaster(my fault only):

    prep-Dove Care + Men Bodywash
    shave-Local&Gent Shaving Co. Fields&Streams
    brush-WSP Pure Badger
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot DisposeABLE
    A.S.-Stirling Sandpiper w/Menthol

    The 2011 R41 is, imo, the MOST unforgiving DE razor that I have ever used. I have heard tell of other very aggressive DE's, but I don't have any personal experience with the others. Angle and pressure are everything with the R41. Until I got used to it, it didn't matter what blade I used. It's not my daily driver, but if I have skipped a shave day, it's an absolute winner!

    Razor: RR Hawk
    Blade: Kai Captain Titan Mild (12)
    Pre Shave Oil: Homemade
    Brush:VDH Badger
    Lather: Proraso Green
    AS: Aqua Velva/ Afta
    Newspaper Date: Dec. 9,1943

    Finally worked up enough nerve to use a razor without a pivot head. The Hawk is, in my opinion one of the finest single edge razors on the market today, thanks to PickledNorthern for this beautiful gift. A2 pass shave,WTG/ATG with the normal amount of clean up, resulting in a fantastic shave, smooth, clean and close. I`m thinking BBS all the way. My 5 `o clock shadow won`t show until about 8 tonight (I shaved this morning at 7). A happy Camper wishing for the to all. God Bless.

    Soap: Henri et Victoria (Cognac and Cuban Cigars)
    Blade: Feather
    Razor: Feather AS/D2
    Brush: Leo Frilot
    AS: Henri et Victoria (Cognac and Cuban Cigars)

    I achieved a BBS today. It was the first time I used this brush and the first time using Henri et Victoria. The brush preformed great I am very happy with it. The soap and AS are great lather and slickness I give it a 9. The scent is a 7 in my book just because I wish it lasted longer. All around today's shave was very enjoyable.
