Outstanding picture Mark. Your razor and brush are out of this world.
Perfect, just perfect!!

Very good setup today. I've noticed that brush before. Can you tell me something about it. It is very interesting.
Some great brand-names used there(Clubman and Gentleman's Pride). Actually I haven't yet tried GP, but maybe someday it'll happen.

Dove Men Face Wash
TSD Iced Lime
Jayaruh #77 Synthetic
CWR, Asma Alum Block
Thayers Rose Petal WH
The TSD Iced Lime Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #77 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Bunny V-3 razor with a Schick Stainless Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayers Rose Petal WH and then Pinaud Clubman After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Hey Jeff, today I watched Rod do some deomonstrations of his soap making on Youtube. Pretty interesting!
Razor: AlumiGoose 2 w/Hempel Ti Handle
Blade: Feather Professional (6)
Brush: Tres Amigos, Desert Ironwood Honeycomb w/Sunrise Synthetic
Soap: Jeeves of Hudson Street Turkish Bath
A/S: Myrsol F/Extra
The more I use the AlumiGoose razor the better I like it. This Hempel handle will be my go to handle from now for sure. The Sunrise Synthetic knot in this handle are premier performers. Jeeves soap worked into an easy slick lather. Hope all are well and you have a great weekend.

It's a PantaRei (https://www.facebook.com/alessandro.pistoia), made by an artisan in Sicily. The handle is fired ceramic and the knot is a Manchurian whose origin is unclear, but whose performance is outstanding. It's a rather heavy brush and surprisingly comfortable and grippy. I like it so much he's making another for me now.
This morning's shave
Hot water wash with nivea mens face wash and a washcloth
Captain's Choice Bay Rum (bombed)

Well, the pic I took was too big, but today's shower and shave was:
TSD M-Bomb in shampoo
F. W. Engels Special Straight/unknown brand (can't remember brand) Finest badger
Stirling Glacial Obsidian shaving soap
Cold water rinse
Stirling Glacial Obsidian ASB
I was a little disappointed in the lack of coolness of the ASB, but maybe my skin was too tight from the alum?
I really like Rod's products so far!!!!
2 Bay Rums.....makes me wonder which two I should combine someday
