Aaand...another Throwback Thursday is on its way. Here's my menu:
prep-Dial 4 Men Bodywash(Infinite Fresh)in shower
brush-Maggard "Marble Handle"(24 mm).
razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot DisposeABLE
I had the A.S. once. Might go for the double-play(w/soap)later. It's a great one.
ASW (made by Wet Shaving Products) Shave Soap and Aftershave - Old Virginia
Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Star Jelly
Evan's MrEE Aluminum w/Simpson Trafalgar T2
Great 2.5 pass shave, everything performed very nicely. The 'Old Virginia' is a very rustic 'leather and tobacco' aroma put together by Lee at Wet Shaving Products for Asylum Shave Works (but discontinued). If you're looking for it...it's nearly the same as WSP's 'Tobacco', but this version seems slightly deeper/darker. You can see the soap is very dark brown, so I always use a synthetic or boar knot to lather this with.
Had a little fun in the 'studio' with the image today. The highlight on the blade etching is done with an extra flashlight that I can very tightly focus the beam to be the LED itself that makes the light. The LED is a rectangle....so it works pretty neat. Captured with an iPhone.
You know the "Outstanding" joke, right? A man with a B.S. in Chemistry can be seen in a grassy area, from a distance. He's a man "Out Standing In His Field"

The blade ruined the shave, it felt like jagged glass. The soap smells just like MWF and lathers awesome. The only thing it isnt as slick. Its slick just not quite. This soap is a lush… it just drinks and drinks and drinks.. overall a great soap

Early Morning Shave,
It's been a while since i last used my Parker 94r which paired together with the Treet carbon classic very nicely with no issues making a smooth efficient razor & blade duo...The hefty weight of this small very effective razor adds to it's wonderful assertiveness.
Last outing of the Treet carbon classic blade which started to feel rough on the second pass quickly losing it's smoothness....That said, it's done considerably well for it's 4th outing, and has still gave me giving me acceptable shave's throughout the week without any major issues.
An acceptable 2 pass + pick ups DFS shave with no errors to report....Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of L'0REAL Soothing Birch Sap PSB.
My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.
Stay safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.

Cold Water Rinse
De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #20 Silvertip Badger
Wilkinson Sword SS
Pinaud Citrus Musk Cologne
The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #20 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Merkur Progress Razor with a Wilkinson Sword SS Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk Cologne. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
