    January 30th Afternoon SOTD

    I had an overdue haircut this afternoon so followed it up with an afternoon shave. I switched things up a bit and pulled out my Gillette Aristocrat Jr. I had a pretty sweet 3 pass shave with 1 little weeper on the neck. Pretty comfy otherwise. I may do a repeat tomorrow. Happy shaves all.

    Razor - RazoRock Wunderbar
    Blade - [​IMG] (1)
    Soap - Soap Commander Courage
    Brush - 30DC LE
    Post - Alum

    Anybody notice I didn't shave yesterday? Yeah, I didn't think so but that's ok. I actually skipped the past two days which set up a three day growth for tonight. Time to choose a different razor so I thought to myself...."self, you need an aggressive razor to handle this". So, I chose the RazoRock Wunderbar Slant. Heavy razor with that wicked slant that provides an excellent shave and lots of reduction with every pass. Still working on the Soap Commander and I will be for a bit longer. I'm thinking it will die sometime in February. I may change up how I work on it next month but I think I can get to the empty jar by the end of it. I used the 30DC LE Synthetic brush with Tuxedo knot from @jtspartan. Fine brush for a very fine lather.

    So, how many passes did the Wunderbar need to turn a three day growth into a baby smooth shave? Two plus a bit of touchup on the neck. That's it. This thing will mow it down and it was a smooth as it could be. I"m sure the Voskhod helped with that, of course. Together that razor and blade are a wicked combination. Love it.

    Tomorrow is Friday!! And the final day of January!!! Which means, for our international brethren and overly caffeinated members - February will be ready to go in a couple of hours. We've got a fantastic January still in progress so let's finish it strong as we move on to February Favorites!! Have a great day.

    A month is gone: eleven more and we will be in 2021. Time flies!

    The @Primotenore SOTD inspired me: I realized that it was time that I wasn't using my Aramis!
    Used as a stick, it lathers well even if it needs a little more water to achieve efficiency.
    And the scent is heavenly ...


    Sapone PS: Valobra Glicerolanolina
    Sapone: Aramis
    Pennello: Lab. Villefranche, Cucciolo, Radica di noce, ST 30
    Rasoio: Gillette, Rocket
    Lametta: Polsilver, Wizamet
    AS: Lab Series, Razor Burn Relief Ultra
    EdT: Aramis
    ST: Tommy Dorsey

    Cold Water Rinse
    CTAPT Shaving Cream
    Jayaruh #340
    TAR by Tom
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Cella ASB

    The CTAPT Shaving Cream face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #340 badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TAR by Tom (2) with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    This was another great shave with The TAR. Tomorrow I will be moving up to 3 for my shave.

    Terrible shave. A few nicks, irritation, and lots of stubble. I passed on the alum; the cold water was bad enough. Is the I1 considered aggressive, moderate, etc.? I don't know much about injectors. Thanks.
