    Razor: 1914 Gillette Single Ring
    Blade: Gillette Spoiler (3)
    Brush: Graydog Quilt
    Soap: Lakewood SOCP (1508.5 Project)
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Skin Bracer
    Fragrance: Penhaligon's Lothair

    Back to the 1508.5 Project. Man it seems so every other day we do this [​IMG] Holding to tub to the light I see a faint donut hole beginning. Yay !! Today we took it up a notch to over 100 years with a 1914 Dated Single Ring. These were my nemisis' that I tamed and now get amazingly close shaves in comfort now. Although I like shiny things especially my razors, I love the age and patina on this razor and leave it that way. Chilly start to the work day but heading to the low 50's today and I'll take it. Powdery goodness of the Skin Bracer mixed with the Peppery goodness of the Lothair and we're ready for the day.......................after some more coffee !!! Have a tremendous day Everyone !

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Cella Shave Soap
    Oscar11 Synthetic
    EndGem Speed Razor
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Cella Shave Soap was applied with the Oscar11 Synthetic. One pass and touch ups with the EndGem Speed Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thursday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
    RVT Frosty Bay Rum SS
    Prep ASB
    Pinaud Bay Rum AS Splash

    Nowhere near as frigid as yesterday’s shave but still colder than cold enough to satisfy my menthol craving - Mo’s Frosty Bay Rum is such a brilliant soap. The scent is so beautiful, the lather is such a pleasure to work up, the menthol sensation is mild to start but then it increases with each pass, and the skincare is excellent. The Prep and the Pinaud Bay Rum aftershave were a perfect finish. Three passes did the job for me - another easy peasy and enjoyable BBS shave!

    Be well and safe!

    I've wished @AlfredoT a happy birthday twice now and it wasn't his birthday. I'm kinda gun shy about being wrong again.
