    Hot Shower
    RAB Scuttle II
    Chubbz I
    Poraso Green Tub
    Lord L-6
    Voskhod (2)
    Cold Water Rag
    Aqua Velva

    Three Passes = DFS!

    This is the second shave with the Travelling L-6. I found the proper angle today and ended up with a better shave from three passes than I did the first shave using four passes. Sort of like different soaps have varying water bands, I am developing the opinion that razors have different angle tolerances, or are more forgiving when used with less than the ideal angle.

    Have a great week Ya'll!

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/new 7 AM
    Godrej Menthol Mist SC :love008 :love008 :anifrozen :anifrozen
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Diana Sport Menthol Balsam :love008 :love008 :anifrozen :anifrozen
    JHL Cologne

    Although our weather became a little cooler, it's still Menthol Monday, and I wanted to freeze myself as much as I could. The Godrej Menthol Mist cream and the Diana balsam did the job beautifully for me. The 7 AM's are also very good blades - I really like them. ;) :D

    The irritation-free factor held-up through intense heat and heavy sweating...still not a hint of burn...thats saying something...
    Normally after a shave this close, and I'm outside walking around in this heat, sweating like an extra in "Lawrence Of Arabia"...My face would be on fire...But not today...Even with periodic splashes of Colonia...No Burn...:D

    Starbucks Sumatra, BLACK
    Proraso pre-shave balm
    Lord Tech w/ Lord Platinum (D1)
    JM Fraser Polar Ice cream with 4 drops of M-Bomb
    Osage Rub
    Proraso balm

    Started travellling Sunday morning for work. Today is going to be a long hot day so I wanted a great cool shave and I got it. I got up early, took my time, and had a great shave, another DFS.

    The JM Fraser polar ice doesn't seem to be mentholated in my opinion but the M-bomb fixed that. This is a great cream though, nice and slick, and gives me a good close shave.

    It's a rare thing to get less than a four blade rating with any of my Merkur razors. They do work well for me.

    Menthol Monday!

    Preshave: wash with KMF unscented shave soap
    Cream: TSD Sub Zero
    Brush: EJ Best Badger
    Razor: Merkur Progress
    Blade: Iridium (1)
    Aftershave: TSD milk, unscented

    First time using TSD cream. VERY NICE! I had so much wonderful cold lather that I did a extra pass against the grain for a flawless BBS, even though I had planned to stop before then.

    • Prep: TSD ISZ PreShave Balm, hot shower, hand strop & cork blade
    • Cream: C.O. Bigelow + Glycerine (4 drops)
    • Brush: Frank Shaving Fine Badger
    • Razor: Gem Junior 1912
    • Blade: Walgreen's Gem (1), 4 passes - trying a new routine
    • Post: CWR, Wally World Witch Hazel, Aqua-Velva Ice Blue, hand strop blade

    What a great shave this morning with the Jr. Gets just as close as the Clog Pruf with less irritation. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be getting an even better shave. It definitely requires a different angle than the Clog Pruf so I'm excited to see what tomorrow brings. Hopefully I'll have a picture tomorrow as well.
