    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    05/23/19

    Brass Handle Synthetic Brush
    Salsa Bowl / Timeless bowl scuttle
    Stirling Noir Shaving Soap
    Karve – 3.25-inch Handle, Plate D - Open Comb
    Voskhod & Astra SP
    Nivea Post Balm
    Stirling Noir After Shave

    Awesome shave this morning with some solid hitters. Started out with a Voskhod that was used but it was just too tuggy so I switched to an Astra SP. The Astra was a lot smoother. I must have had more mileage on the Voskhod than I realized.

    I have not shaved with the Karve in a while so I felt it was time to get it of the box. The more I use the OC the more I like it. No weepers or nicks and the alum was quiet this morning. The last few times I have been using the Karve a little visitor would crawl into the bathroom and quickly crawl out, eluding me to no avail. I can honestly say that I caught the little visitor this morning. That rights guys, I caught the baby! :happy108:

    I finished up with some Nivea post balm and Stirling Noir aftershave. I am smelling pretty and feeling pretty!

    Take care and have a great day.

    Great review Gus. I will be using my Eleven DFS LE for my Friday morning shave. Now I am really looking forward to the shave.

    I look forward to beginning with my "sample" of it, but there's one, maybe two more shaves left with the Agar sample. Course now that I have the AgadirMen A.S., maybe I'll just get going on the Noir and keep the Agar around for a while.

    Newly acquired, slightly restored, and Fully honed. I had a great 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. It was a tricky shave, the power kept going out. Excellent razor. This is the first I have used this soap, and I must say, it is fantastic.


    Razor- Wade & Butcher
    Brush- Omega Boar, 10098
    Soap- Pinaud Clubman
    Aftershave- Pinaud Clubman

    *Much better shave 2nd go w/ the Schick A/C blade, only blade in vector to feel harsh. Degreased first time with iso alch (oil on it out of the tuck), corked it this time, will cork this one first shave any time using in future.

    First shave using a micromatic. Very nice. I'd say thayers witch hazel has a much better smell than the Humphreys. Little burn from it too. [​IMG]
