    Looks like they're having some database/SQL corruption. I wonder if the co-loc is experiencing problems?

    The site's been up and down (mostly down) for me all day.

    Ahhhh, gotta love computers. ;)

    Dovo 5/8
    Muehle Super
    Mama Bear Rain Orchid

    Merkur Vision w Merkur Blade :mad:
    Merkur Slant w Tesco Blade

    Anherb Gel

    The First pass with the Straight, no problem. But the touch up with the Vision and Merkur Blade - Ouch!! Merkurs own blade is really BAD!! I had forgotten why I never use them.. Quick change to my slant to finish up and I managed to save me a decent shave at least..

    Cella extra extra purissima
    alum, alum, alum
    Swiss Pitralon
    Provence Sante ASB
    Shea Butter

    arrrrgh, bad shave today. Gave myself 2 nicks with the Prima Klang and then switched to the Slim Adjustable. Got myself some nasty razor burn on the neck (kudos to the Prima Klang), which is now in the process of healing. Damn, the third or fourth shave in a row with that razor resulting in razor burn afterwards.... might have ter load it off.

    If your ASB is too thick, cut it with a bit of Witch Hazel.

    A couple of bad shaves. Hope it's not an omen. :( Comes in threes.

    • Hot shower
    • Hot towel
    • Cromwell & Carruthers shave oil
    • FrankenTech/Wilkinson Classic Sword
    • Kent Woolfat soap
    • B&B Horn Superfinest
    • Alum block
    • Royall Lime AS
    • Body Shop Razor Relief ASB

    A good shave. The Tech is a nice little razor, but I've come to realize that I'm happier with heavy implements of shaving. Back to a different razor tomorrow. The Wilkinsons I got yesterday seem sharper than the German Wilkinsons I started shaving with, which is nice.

    Great idea! My Thayer's stuff (big love) and my Hydrosols (also much love) don't get as much work lately. This would be a perfect way to get them in.

    And just about 1 hr. later -- final verdict on today's concoction -- ::git :cool: :happy088
