    Tonights was with a German made razor. I had a very smooth, 2 pass shave, after 3 days of growth, that left me with a BDBS shave. Zero issues, just a very well built razor.

    Razor- C-MON "Blackie", by Carl Monkhouse.
    Brush- @oscar11 made, with Synthetic Knot
    Soap- Wholly Kaw "OUD".
    Aftershave- Arctic Blue.

    Three days and no problems for the Razorock Hawk V3 OC. One tiny nick above the lip, otherwise smooth and efficient. I hope everyone had a great day with Mom today. Happy shaves all.

    The Merry Mixed Up Month of May!

    May 10

    Razor - 1918 Gillette Old Type
    Blade - [​IMG]
    Soap - Fine Italian Citrus
    Brush - The Canuck
    Post - Alum

    First of all, to everyone out there who has a mother - I hope you told them Happy Mother's Day!! If you never had a mother, I have questions for you. Seriously. I know some of you, like myself, had wonderful mothers who are no longer with us. Let's say Happy Mother's Day to them as well. They received their reward, and hopefully a little extra for putting up with the likes of us!

    After a no-shave Saturday I jumped back in and picked up the razor I did the first 5 days of the 30DC with in January 2015. It only took that long for me to give up because I was literally butchering myself. Way too aggressive a choice, so I made a change. To see what I changed to you can check THIS OUT - and it will also tell you my favorite blade and how long it's been my favorite! Another reason for choosing the 1918 right now is......I wanted to use a razor that was made during the last pandemic! From Spanish Flu to Covid-19 - this razor has seen it ALL!! I paired it with a Sputnik blade. St. Pete's is the origin of these blades and they have a long history. Gillette, of course, makes them in St. Petersburg. They're a Teflon coated blade that seem to be a bit of a cheap version of a Voskhod. They aren't bad at all, but don't have the staying power or sharpness of a Voskhod. Not a horrible Russian blade to have around, though.

    For the lather - Fine Italian Citrus and The Canuck. I don't believe I've ever showcased both the bowl and brush handle from @jtspartan together. Between him and @Jayaruh , I have lots of nice looking stuff. That's why I mention them often. Keeps me in their good graces. Seriously, they both do some pretty amazing wood work.

    Three passes to a near-BBS and I'm a happy camper. Got a day more or less off tomorrow so looking forward to that. Near freezing again tonight and then I think we can finally start Spring for real! Have a great Monday!!

    The Ingram Shave Cream face-lathered well with my Tom's B-400 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNOC by Tom with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
