    RazoRock Black Hawk
    Feather Professional
    Mennen Skin Bracer

    The TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #224 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the RazoRock Black Hawk Razor and the Feather Professional AC blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Mennen Skin Bracer After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shave of the Week Starting 01/07/2024

    English Tech razor
    EuroMax blade
    Vie-Long Silver Tip Brush
    Kent Shave Soap
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Various A/S

    The Kent SS I have is a tallow version that works wonderfully well, giving a fabulous lather. Using a badger brush after using synthetics for so long is quite an adventure but worked out ok. The Vie-Long is a very nice brush. The English Tech is a treasure for me. Smooth/effecitve/comfortable = very nice indeed. So my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Is there any difference between the Doc's earlier Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo and this one?

    MMMonday, July 1st 2024, Sorry fellows wrong photo on above post!

    Razor : Ever-Ready SE streamline 2nd Generation, Mfg 1949-53, mid to upper mid range. The ER Streamline razor is one of the nicest ASR razors to look at, but it was designed around the older splined Gem blades that had a thicker spline IMO. I just slip a spent flattened modern spline(RIGS) folded underneath the modern PTFE blade I'm using and Wala it brings the set up closer to original design that makes for a smoother shave at least for a few of us who have tried. Had a close comfortable stellar shave this morning.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (10) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
    Soap : Yaqi Musketeer Rapier, nice unique scented soap(addictive) with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Panda" 24mm Tuxedo knot. Excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. This would be a hard handle to Manufacture I'm thinking and very unique to look at and use. Bought on a excellent sale.
    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 : Witch hazel cleanse+ Yaqi Musketeer Rapier splash + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : Dial 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Ever-Ready SE streamline razor with a coated Gem blade.

    No, absolutely none. The name of the soap is different because of some nasty remarks made by some idiots because they thought that the term “Eskimo” was a racist comment which it IS NOT.
