    The Merry Mixed Up Month of May!

    May 5

    Razor - Gillette Red Tip Super Speed
    Blade - [​IMG]
    Soap - FatBac
    Brush - @Jayaruh #46
    Post - Alum

    It's the end of a Tuesday in the Lou. Cinco de Mayo!! So, hopefully, you had some Tacos on Taco Tuesday Cinco de Mayo. If not, go ahead and do it tomorrow. Close enough.

    Great finish to the day with the Red Tip one more time. Sharp Star for a third totally smooth and sharp night. The JR46 got pulled into duty for a soap I haven't touched in forever! It's FatBac time! For the newer members who haven't encountered this soap before it's just a 50/50 mix of Mitchell's Wool Fat and Tabac. I keep the last bits from each when I wear out a puck and grate them then press them into a bowl. It has a really great scent - think Tabac but modified by the clean scent of MWF, and the lather is absolutely amazing. Super easy and super slick and cushy. I've actually thought of buying an extra puck of each just to make a "full batch". But, I have too much soap already so that isn't happening soon.

    Three passes to the gloryland and my Tuesday is complete.

    Fun 30DC History moment of the day - How about a post from January 1, 2015 from the one and only @Bama Samurai , Chris. You'll notice the front half of his nickname references the great State of Alabama. Yes, he's an ALABAMA fan. Not that other school that tries to compete with them down there. Aub.....something or other. Anyone who knows anything about Alabama football, and many who just know the history of college football know the name Paul "Bear" Bryant. One of the all time great college coaches. He was the original Nick Saban, if that helps. Or, should I say, Nick is a somewhat worthy successor to the Bear. So what does Bear Bryant have to do with shaving, you ask? Check it out HERE!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!
