    Razor: Unknown using 1/2 de blade
    Blade: 1/2 Super max (3)
    Cream: Cremo Original
    Brush: VDH Badger
    Pre Shave Oil: Homemade
    AS: Nivea Balm/Brut Splash On
    Bowl: Large Walmart Soup Bowl

    A good 2 pass shave this morning, I didn`t see the small pool of water in the bowl when I started lathering up (soupy), but I worked in a little more cream, and although still pretty thin, it worked out for the best, this particular razor clogs fairly easy. The 1st pass was done lightly, which removed the top layer of hair. I then started from scratch with a new, batch of lather and ATG/ XTG and came out with something close to DF+. So I`m satisfied. Feeling of my face 2 hrs. later ,it is smoother than I thought, it is what it is, I guess.

    Love it. Mildy aggressive, great weight. The handle alone is worth the 14.99, IMO.

    Y'now, Jeff, I used my Rise Cooling Balm today and from what I've read about Lucky Tiger, they appear similar....not much fragrance, but a nice softness on the face and neck.

    image.jpeg Razor: Merker Futur Polished Chrome 2015 (1.5)
    Brush: Rubberset 400 #3 WD 24/50 Silvertip (Jedi Lightsaber)
    Mug: Old Spice 1985 Cobalt Blue
    Cream/Soap: Route 66 Bourbon Jungle
    Blade: Feather (1)
    Post shave: Thayers Cucumber WH, Jack Black balm, 4711 cologne

    Swirled up some Bourbon Jungle into my favorite OS mug. The Silvertip whipped up some nice warm lather. The Bourbon Jungle by Route 66 gives a great slick cushion. The Futur made quick work in 2 passes WTG XTG. I really like how easy it is to shave with. A little touchup on my neck ATG and done. The Cucumber WH felt good, nice and fresh. After cleanup some JB and when it dried, some 4711 cologne! Y'all have a good one!

    Prep: Warm shower
    Blade: Chinese Schick
    Razor: Schick G1 Injector
    Brush: Omega 10049 boar
    Lather: VDH Luxury
    Post: Witch hazel, Aqua Velva, Nivea sensitive balm
    WTG, touch-up

    Back to the Chick blade today after a sojourn with Pella blades. Chicks are the way to go for me! Smooth, close, comfortable shave. The VDH is on its last leg. I think I'll get one more shave out of it. It's been a great soap.

    The Aqua Velva didn't sting near as much as last time. It felt good. All in all a good shave!

    Enjoy your day!
