    It's been quite a while since I used the AVON, so today was the Pawn Wild Country. And even longer since I used an injector. Not bad at all.

    Hello, thank you for the kind words. Yes the photo is my father. I refurbished the case myself, it was originally a Ranger Tech case, that was pretty well destroyed. I cleaned it up, lined the tray with velvet, and painted the interior and exterior. Then reassembled it. I'm glad you like it. The razor was one he bought upon his return from the Korean War. God Rest His Weary Soul. Thanks for your interest.

    Route 66 Bourbon Jungle today. 20 seconds to load the Henri et Victoria HMW. Easy, thick, slick, lather. 7 O’Clock Blue SP still in the Fat Boy. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with CC Southern Oud.

    June 11, 2016 Sat. Shave

    Razor: Hibco 2 piece
    Blade: 1/2 Super Max (6 +)
    Soap: Italian Barber
    Brush: No Name
    Pre Shave Oil: Homemade
    AS: Gillette Gel/Brut Splash On
    Newspaper Date: Dec. 5,1943

    Unbelievable that I could get a good shave from a dull blade (some irritation). I used my 2 piece that already had a 1/2 blade loaded, so why not try it? I think that, if your not sure how many times that edge has been used DUMP IT. (I didn`t cause I`m an idiot), anyway my 1st pass, ATG actually did pretty good job for a little while, then I could feel the tugging. But like a hard head, I just plowed on through, some pain but mostly just irritation. My 2nd pass, WTG/XTG went a little better, after all, most of the work has been done. Ending in a shave I could "take home to mom". Satisfied.
