    I went 2 days without shaving. Today I tried cool water shave with menthol Proraso and Blue pre-shave cream. Pleasant shave for a summer morning. I need to wash the bike and head to Southern Tier Harley to pick up a couple things. I need a couple crush gaskets for the exhaust connection to the crossover pipe. Also an air filter.

    Hawk v3
    Feather Professional blade 5th shave
    Proraso Menthol shave soap
    Proraso Blue pre-shave
    Simpson Commodore brush
    Thayers toner & Geo F Trumper balm
    Pinaud Clubman AS

    Cool water for a summer morning shave. Cool shower. I had to add more water to the lather bowl to get the lather and went a little overboard with the water. I didn't bloom the soap or pre-heat bowl. I wet the brush with cool water and started swirling in the soap tub. It was hydrated well for sure! Pleasant shave WTG, ATG, and cleanup on jawline. Nice and smooth face to start the day.

    I hope all have a great morning!

    The Pharoah's Dreamsicle Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #30 badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Supply SE Razor with a Supply Black Label 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...

    Saturday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 11
    Stirling Frozen Tundra SS
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash

    This Frozen Tundra is Rod’s second coldest soap after the Glacials - and I love it so much. What a beautiful scent it has - peppermint, wintergreen, and earthy notes come together to make it so refreshing, the lather is so thick, dense, slick and protective thanks to the tallow formula, the menthol sensation hits hard, and like all of Rod’s soaps it gives wonderful postshave care. The Prep is like a magical cream because it’s so soothing, moisturizing, and cooling - not only that, the scent reminds me so much of Noxzema cream which is a godsend for sensitive skin. The Alt Innsbruck aftershave has such a beautiful old school barbershop scent that I love as well as a serious menthol punch. Three glorious passes gave me a brilliant BBS shave!

    Have a wonderful weekend - be well and safe!

    Razor : Gillette regular flare tip Super speed 1956 B2- Mfg 1956, 2nd qtr, mild razor, very smooth shaving, well built, works well with a extra wide Kai SS blade, the blade drives the efficentcy up a notch and can give a great shave.
    Blade : Kai SS (4)- top 5 tier of my DE blades, sharp & smoooth with excellent longevity, great blade for mild razors in a persons collection that hardly get used because the razor is to mild for your preference. Very impressive blade and glad I purchased some tucks a few yrs ago.
    Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream, very nice mild spearmint Lavender scent with excellent lather qualities. Very nice cream.
    Brush : Yaqi Dandelion 24mm cashmere knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Ach Brito Lavanda[​IMG] with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Gillette flare tip SS with a Kai extra wide blade.

    Have some great shaves!

    Hiya, Chris! Yep! I ride there on Saturdays for the free burgers and soda. This Saturday was a pain in the butt to get there tho....NY state has some of the best engineers. They have that new bridge they building over I81 (Front Street) that they been milking now for almost a year (it's so hard). They are so smart, they tore down the old bridge before the new one was ready. SMART people! Traffic was maddening! And there I was in it on a bike! Front Street was closed on a Saturday due to no bridge over the freeway. Yep. Smart engineers. I sometimes think they like to torture us! I lived in Minnesota for 25 years and the hiway crew work ethic there puts NY to shame! Speedie fest will be fun this year! NOT!
