    Yeah, fortunately I PM’d @DaltonGang before I bought my first bottle as I knew he as a fan. He gave me the good advice to get the pre-P&G stuff. I’m really glad he gave me that tip - can’t beat the vintage stuff :happy088:

    Yep, the vintage Shulton Old Spice is hands down 100 times(Ok, maybe 10x) better than the Post 1993 Proctor & Gamble swill.

    Yes he is. He has a special talent for blending fragrance oils and essential oils so that the scents come out perfect. The way he created the Vintage Spice soap and aftershave is unbelievable - I don’t think I ever tried anything else that’s so bang on.

    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 8
    Bundubeard Klipspringer’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    My brother Jaco also has some terrific soaps - his Klipspringer is glycerine based but it gives great lather with lots of slickness, its scent is so nice - it’s a blend of coffee with peppermint, there’s a very good menthol sensation, and it’s got excellent skincare. The Prep is so moisturizing, cooling, and soothing, while the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave is icy cold and I love the scent. I was in a bit of a rush so I only did two passes but I ended up very smooth - this was a fantastic shave!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #30
    Gillette Double Ring 1905
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Pharoah's Dreamsicle AS

    The Williams Mug Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #30 badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with Gillette Double Ring Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pharoah's Dreamsicle AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I got so busy yesterday that, I never did shave. By the time I could have shaved, it was late in the day so, I decided to hold off till today. I had 2 musician friends call me to coax me to a music jam at the local senior center. The Featherweight had shaved me so close that I really didn't need to shave. Today's shave was very pleasant with the GEM Featherweight. I think I have mastered this razor. No cuts, nicks, or weepers! ;)

    Razor - GEM Featherweight
    Blade - GEM Personna SS 7th shave (still sharp!)
    Soap - Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Brush - Simpson T1 Trafalgar
    Pre - Proraso "Blue" (cooling)
    After shave - Thayers & Geo F Trumper "Skin Food" Sandalwood balm

    I had a VERY pleasant 2-pass shave with cleanup on jawline. This is a very efficient razor! I can go 2 days after shaving with this razor no problem. WTG, ATG and no cuts! No red spots! No red cream! I like it! LOL

    I am still keeping low profile today due to back still sore but MUCH better. I been living on pain pills. Oh, and it looks like Vance & Hines is replacing the whole exhaust system for me!:)
    I thought companies didn't support their products these days (buyer beware) so, this is a pleasant surprise. Totally unexpected! Must have been the nasty email. LOL
