    This razor doesn’t get enough air time. Yes, Lucifer is prettier than the Claymore but, for a finer shave that deals a BBS every time there are only a few that I can count on one hand that match it stroke for stroke and finish. It delivers sensational results time after time. Hell of a razor. A great evening and wonderful shaves to all...

    MW is the high maintenance beauty queen of soaps. Difficult, exasperating, but can be a nice performer if you baby and coax her. I am not sure she is worth it for me in the mornings when I am pressed for time. Too many great soaps that are much easier to have brush foreplay with.

    Give Xerjoff a run. Great performing summer scent. [​IMG]

    Just the Basics June!!

    Brush - VDH Boar/Jayaruh #230

    Wow. Four days have passed since a shave? Impossible, Unheard of, Absurd!! (Name the musical for extra points). But, it's really been that long. Longer on my head shave. About a month ago, maybe more, I decided to just chrome the dome and leave the sides to see what they would do. Well, they didn't do enough to convince me to leave them, but they did leave a mess behind to deal with. When your head shave looks like this:

    It's time to call in a pain stick for sure. So, the Kai with Feather Pro blades and VDH soap to deal with that, followed by the main event with the New LC and Voskhod because - nothing is more basic to getting a great 4 day shave than a sharp blade and baby, Voskhod is. It's Tabac Tuesday so a no-brainer there and the JR230 for the win.

    The head shave was a bit more challenging at that length, though the pain stick went through it without a problem. I did have to rinse the razor in a mug and not the sink to avoid clogging the pipes so it took a bit longer than usual but no worries. One minor nick when I set down wrong on the back of my head. It's sometimes tough to get the angle right on the downstroke because of the view in the rear view mirror. Only a minor problem. In fact it was a couple of minutes after I felt it before I saw any blood at all.

    As for the main event - the LC and Voskhod made those three passes easy. Ridiculously easy. Loved it, and the Tabac was gain excellent. I'll probably spritz on a bit of Tabac Cologne tomorrow before heading out.

    Speaking of tomorrow - it's GAME 7!! It's in Boston which means we should easily beat them. There is a watch party at Enterprise Center that sold out in 31 minutes. Another one in Busch Stadium that will no doubt sell out another 45,000 or so seats. You probably won't hear from me tomorrow as I plan to hunt down those fans on their way home from celebrating a STANLEY CUP WIN!!! Let's go BLUES!!

    Have a great Wednesday!
