    I knew it wouldn't last...
    I was awakened by blinding sunshine: and I had moved here trusting in the typical northern mists…

    I cheered up with some of the best lavender I've ever smelled, though: the scent of the soap, after shave, and EdT seem made for each other.

    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    Stoll Jr. Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with The SlimGem Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Stoll Jr. Lather Catcher with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 10
    Master Soap Creations Peppermint Lime SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Citrus Melody AS Splash

    Not only am I BBS after three glorious passes I’m
    absolutely frozen solid - this Peppermint Lime soap smells beautiful, it’s a fantastic latherer thanks to the tallow formula, its menthol sensation is a force to be reckoned with, and it’s so skin friendly. The Prep took great additional care of me and the Citrus Melody aftershave froze me to smithereens - man, does it ever smell lovely also. What a tip top shave!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and safe!

    It is interesting what you are doing to use the old method of re stropping a blade with glass, I did something similar 2 years ago and a carbon blade is the one to go with. I did not have one to use so I used stainless steel blade.

    Nodachi-Prismatic/Feather. I feel a little guilty messing with the precision Tatara...but not that guilty, Prismatic is simply too much fun, audible feedback and efficiency with no discernable penalty.[​IMG]

    Captain's Choice travels continue taking us to...
    The first day of the Captain's Three day voyage: 45th Parallel
    Brush: Parker Synth Brush
    Bowl: Shave Nation
    Lather: Captain's Choice Venture Soap
    Razor: Gillette 1959 E4
    Blade: Feather (1)
    Post: Shavex Alum Block
    Post: Thayers Witch Hazel
    Balm: Captain's Parallel

    This one was a bit problematic for me in that I struggled to make a good lather. It was literally bonding to the razor.
    I suspect the issue was with the guy actually creating the lather so I'll give it another go tomorrow. It has a nice fresh scent that is great for summer!
