    Razor: Gillette Tech
    Blade:personna Israeli Red (1)
    Pre Shave: Homemade
    Brush: VDH Badger
    Lather:The Superior Shave Co. (cake)
    AS: Brut Splash On

    What is a " Perfect" shave? We all know there is nothing " Perfect". So we put "Perfect" in a category that isn`t quite " Perfect" for the things we really find outstanding. That`s what I got this morning. A 2 pass, "Perfect" shave, WTG/ATG with a light slurry for a clean up. That was so smooth, it was like no blade at all. As close as I have ever had. Wishing for the same to all members, God Bless.

    Rockwell 6C Razor
    Blue Bird Blade
    RazoRock 26mm Blondie Boar Knot/Aluminum Handle (restored)
    Dirty Deeds Bay Rum & Lime Soap
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Pinaud Clubman After Shave

    Decided to take a break with @Vlasta's shave cream survey so I could do an evaluation on RazoRock's Blondie boar knot, which I removed from it's original handle and used for an aluminum handle restore ( ). It's supposed to be treated to be softer and have less time breaking in. I can say this, they are right. I did one lather a couple of days ago using Derby soap, and after it was dry, I noticed that it was very soft and felt as though it was used for a couple of weeks straight. Today's shave with the brush felt fantastic for a first shave with a new boar brush. Can't wait to see how much better it can get. Two passes with minor touch up for a very nice and smooth BBS shave. Also, this blade was on it's third use and felt great.

    SOTD WEDNESDAY 11/22/2017 thru SATURDAY 11/25/2017
    all shaves were with the same tools, products, and produced the same result.
    6+ Cartridge Razor DISTRACTION

    RAZOR: TopCare (Dorco Pace 6 Blade Handle - SXA1000)
    BLADE: TopCare 6 blade (Pace 6 Cartridges)- this blade had been used maybe 6-7 years ago then put away.
    PREP: Hot water shower followed by hot water rinse
    BRUSH: NO - applied by hand
    SHAVE CREAM: Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive - Ocean Breeze
    POST SHAVE: Hot water rinse
    AFTER SHAVE: Flag & Sail Original Brisk
    Took this razor & shave cream combo on my Thanksgiving road trip. Have now used it 8+ times since getting it out and cleaning it up.
    It is still producing quick, efficient results. Just what I needed on this trip - minimize me time to spend more time with kids & grand kids.
    1-pass gets you to DFS; 2-passes gets you BBS - sometimes needing a few touchups.
    Had a great Holiday weekend visiting with 3 of my 4 children and their families.
    Hope you all had a safe and happy weekend.
