    SOTD SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER, 2021

    Quicker shave than usual this morning as I prepare to return home. According to his father, my oldest son, Ben, everything is going well at home. Ben informed me that he polished off and then filled a nearly empty Oban 18 yr-old bottle with Vat 69 rotgut Scotch and left it out in my home bar. Kevin had two of his friends over, and the three pretty much polished it off. Ben tells me he thinks his son learned a lesson, judging by his face and his need for a headache pill yesterday.

    I rose early so I could take my time and enjoy my shave. The little Klas Tornblom 4/8 maintained the fantastic shave tradition of all my Swedish 4/8 and cleanly and effortlessly removed my mug stubble in two and a fall very pleasurable passes leaving my mug porcelain smooth. My dome shave was every bit as good. My favorite Gillette, the New LC cleared away my noggin stubble with aplomb in the usual two ATG passes leaving your happy narrator velveteen smooth from shoulders to noggin.

    RAZOR: Klas Tornblom 4/8 (Mug), Gillette New LC
    BLADE: Feather DE (Dome)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE LE #005 Aluminum Handled SybBad Knot
    CREAM: Kapo Fresh Menthol
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Bergamot & Thyme AS Balm.

    Sunday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 5
    Razorock One X SS
    Intesa ASB
    Razorock One X AS Splash

    This One X soap and aftershave were a gift from my lovely wife a few years ago and because I hadn’t used them for the longest time I decided to go with them this morning. The soap is so easy to lather, albeit not too slick, the scent is to die for - it’s a carbon copy of Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo which I had a long time ago, and the skincare is fairly good. The Intesa balm soothed my skin very well, and the One X aftershave has the same gorgeous scent as the soap along with a mild menthol sensation. Another picture perfect BBS shave!

    Enjoy your Sunday and your shaves - be well and safe!

    The Strop Shoppe Unscented Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh 287 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Triceratops 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 Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    SOTD SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 28, 2021

    Had a nice welcome home shave this morning. Still a bit jet-lagged, and seem to still be on Las Vegas time. Some of us prefer hollow ground and others more wedge or wedge-like grinds. My favorite grinds are extra full hollows or rattler grinds. The drawback to these grinds, particularly the bellied or double bellied full hollows is their fragility. I really enjoy wielding a hyper sharp hollow ground straight razor. I just love hearing the “Buttering Toast” song as the blade works. I removed close to two weeks growth after a recent hospitalization. It sheared away the heavy growth while singing away!

    My grandson, Kevin, of the Thanksgiving hangover, bought a vintage Pearl Duck 5/8 last Wednesday on his own, knowing my appreciation for my Dubl Duck Goldedge 11/16 which I selected for this morning’s mug shave. He had planned to cleanup and present it to yours truly for Christmas, but a little post hangover clumsiness intervened. Unfortunately, he tapped the blade against the metal utility sink faucet on Friday while rinsing the anti-rust solution off, and cracked off about the first quarter of the blade below the spine. My son, Ben, his father, made the best of the situation. He shared G-Pop’s love of shorties. So the two of them will be working to convert the blade and scales.

    The mug shave went swimmingly this morning. Last night I ran the blade through the constroption and Roo-skin bench strop until it was Feather-Super-styrofoam-poppin’ sharp. Two and a half passes really did the trick. Two scything passes on either side of the Adam’s Apple removed most of the recalcitrant, swirling stubble. Some final flat-blading took care of the rest. My shave buddy, David, has an amazing safety razor collection, but his favorite is his Ronson. I purchased mine a year or so ago on his recommendation, and am glad I did. This head-heavy little safety razor is quite efficient swept away my noggin stubble effortlessly leaving your happy narrator velveteen smooth from noggin to shoulders!

    RAZOR: Dubl Duck 11/16 (Mug), Ronson Safety Razor (Dome)
    BLADE: Schick Proline B-20 Injector
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Kent Infinity Synth
    SOAP: PAA Coconut Bay
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Coconut Bay AS Splash.
