    Tonight's shave was with a top shelf of a razor. This one is so sharp and smooth, that I only needed one pass, for a near BBS shave. I had zero issues. It was like a hot knife, through warm butter.

    Razor- Wade & Butcher
    Brush- B400 by Tom
    Soap- Arko/Avon Spicy
    Aftershave- Avon Spicy

    Tuesday's Adjustable Shave

    Proraso Pre Shave
    Fine Snake Bite
    Jayaruh #241
    Gillette 195 Fatboy
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Barbasol AS

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Fine Snake Bite Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #241 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Gillette 195 Fatboy adjustable razor on 5 with a Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    SOTD Monday 11/13/2017
    RAZOR: BOSS 3 Piece Extra Heavyweight - All Metal Textured Safety Razor Long Handle (4 inch handle, 4.8 ounces)
    BLADE: Dorco Platinum ST-300 - FRESH blade.
    PREP: hot water face wash with Dial soap- followed by application of bloom water from VDH Shave soap
    PRE SHAVE: - Tri Coastal Design White Birch & Tobacco Shave Butter.
    BRUSH: VDH Boar - this is the classic boar brush from the Van Der Hagen Premium Shave Set - second use from new.
    MUG: Vintage Old Spice Shave Mug
    SOAP: NEW PUCK of Van Der Hagen deluxe Shave soap- face lather
    POST SHAVE: Hot water rinse
    AFTER SHAVE: Flag & Sail Original Brisk
    My first use of this new razor. I had great expectations for this Boss heavy weight razor - and it did not disappoint!
    Got a very excellent 3-pass BBS shave. Almost no issues (1 minor weeper under neck), no discomfort, very smooth. Could have stopped after 2-passes.

    It is definitely on the aggressive side, but seems to be exactly where I like it. Very efficient, nice feedback, and seriously hefty feel. My heaviest DE razor.
    This one is definitely challenging my current favorite (SABI Extra HeavyWeight 4" handle DE) for the top spot in the rotation.

    Thanks to jmudrick for pointing this one out. Love it!

    Have a great week.

    Titanium Multi (WCS) Closed comb & Bolzano Superinox #1
    Maggard 30mm B&W
    B&M Seville soap
    Thayers Lemon WH astringent
    M&R Rose water
    B&M Seville A/S splash
    This came in today, a razor from WCS (West Coast Shaving). It's from their Titanium Collection Multi anodized razors closed comb. Unfortunately, no open comb head available yet. But the shave was quite good actually and made short work of 24 hours worth of stubble. 2 pass plus some touch ups and it was a DFS for a sub $25 razor. Very satisfying indeed. Have a great evening and shaves Gents..... :happy088:
