    Eskimo Tuxedo Shave Soap

    Fuzzy Catcher 3D by Tom White
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Osage Rub

    November is here, and I have designated it as 3D Printed Razor Month. I will be using all of my printed razors this month. I have 14, so most will get used at least twice. Here we go.

    The Eskimo Tuxedo Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #144 Finest Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Fuzzy Catcher 3D Lather Catcher Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 6
    MSC Frosted Lavender SS
    Prep ASB
    Krampert’s Frostbite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    This Frosted Lavender soap is a menthol atom bomb with a gorgeous classy lavender scent, awesome lather which is so slick thanks to the tallow formula, the freeze is easily comparable to any of the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep balm doesn’t lack menthol either - it’s so moisturizing as well as soothing, and the Krampert’s Frostbite aftershave kept that freeze going. My first shave of this month turned out A1 - Smoother than silk!

    Have a good week - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Today’s mug shave featured the Smith Bros 11/16. This razor has a phenomenal edge thanks to the 9 Ball Slate. It is recently returned from the Sandpoint ID Razor beauty spa where it was fitted with a new set of scales by the proprietor, Glen Mercurio. The new scales fit the razor much better and impart a better sense of b early alance than the former, much slimmer, original horn, insect eaten scales.

    This morning’s mug shave sheared away my whiskers in what has evolved into a regular two and a half pass regimen. The first two passes cleared everything away to the jawline. The final half pass focused exclusively on the neck and consisted of some very careful scything passes on each side of the Adam’s Apple followed by some final flatblading leaving me as smooth as my great-granddaughter's bottom.

    Since I spent last month almost exclusively with my OC safety razors, I decided to kick off the first shave in November with my Cooper Kant-Rust, a vintage safety razor manufactured in Brooklyn, NY in the early thirties. It has a knurled hexagonal handle that is quite slip-proof, and delivered a velveteen smooth two pass ATG shave leaving your happy narrator very pleased with the results.

    RAZOR: Smith Bros. 11/16 (Mug), Cooper Kant-Rust (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather DE
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE LE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot #007
    SOAP: Nuavia Blue
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Thayers WH. Finished with Cremo Cooling Post Shave Balm and Canoe EdT.

    I've had it awhile. Super smooth, almost no blade feel. It does take me a few strokes to get the angle locked in. Steeper than where muscle memory takes me.
