    I love it! The scent and the performance. The aftershave doesn’t have an overly strong projection (which I like), but it has great longevity. Now, 7 hours on and I can still smell it. Top notch.

    Thanks Gary, I enjoy the soap and the aftershave is OK. The RR blue barber aftershave is suppose to mimic Floid Blue A.S they discontinued years ago.

    Took a few days without shaving.
    Today after a hot shower I lathered up with Evelyn Crabtree lime. I used my Brothers Bristles with the ace black badger. With a few days growth it lathered up very nicely. I unwrapped a new persona lab dropped it into my r41 head and tightened it down with the mr5 maggard handle. Nothing feels better than that beast devouring the unwanted bristles. It sung for two passes leaving gobs of dirty foam. It reminded me of wood shavings as I flung them into the sink. The last pass felt squeaky, like I was almost squeegee'ing the blade across my face. Finishing the deal with a splash of Lime SEC. THE FRESH, feeling of smooth skin, and the sick fascination I get from those dirty globs washing down the drain. Im telling y'all, ain't no better feeling. As always,
    Hope y'all did as well, or better.

    Soap - Soap Commander Courage
    Brush - The Canuck w/ SynBad Flat Top

    A beautiful day in the Lou today. Well, if you like wet, sloppy, slushy and snowy, then yeah, a beautiful day indeed. I called it quits earlier than usual when the slush started piling up. Now we have about an inch of slush with a nice inch of snow on top and it's still snowing. Temps are holding right at freezing so we don't know what we'll have in the morning. Breakfast. We'll have breakfast.

    Whatever the weather it's time to shave and work that Soap Commander ring of death farther out. I used The Canuck - with handle by @jtspartan and the SynBad Flat Top courtesy of @Screwtape . Won this brush on a bet with both that they'd fail in their NB efforts. You can make about 10 gallons of lather with this knot and it splays and handles the lathering duties with true decadence. Looks great too. The New SC Deluxe and Sharp Star were up for their third run and had plenty of super slick and cushy lather to work with.

    Three passes to a perfect shave and that's Thursday! We've arrived at the early weekend again and that's a good thing! It's also NHL All Star weekend and it's here in STL!! Lots of fun going on. Hope your weekend is a fun one as well.
