    Thanksgiving Day Shave

    Lather: TSD Wheat Shaving cream, sensitive
    Brush: Strong Set
    Razor: iKon Shavecraft 101
    Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium
    Post: witch hazel

    Very nice shave! Every time I use the iKon Shavecraft razor, I tell myself I should use this more often. Easy handling and mild. One side is open comb and the other is a closed comb, but it is hard to tell the difference on my face.

    I’ve had this tuck of Personnas in the blade drawer for a few years at least. One blade was gone, so I guess this is my 2nd use of one. It was fine. Not the sharpest…but fine.
    Have a great day all!

    A day late for my Thanksgiving day shave post! I was SO busy yesterday! Today is a no-shave day.

    Razor - Razorine Flatboy
    Blade - Ever Sharp (2)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Blue
    Brush - Satin Tip synthetic
    Soap - Castle Forbes "Lavender"
    Post-shave - Thayers Toner "Lavender" & Proraso balm
    After-shave - Pinaud Clubman "Whiskey Woods"

    HOT shower to get clean and ready for festivities. Pre-heated the bowl and brush with HOT water while I wet my face and applied the pre-shave cream. I had not shaved with the Flatboy in a while so, I got 2 nicks! I did a 2-pass shave WTG & ATG with cleanup along the jawline. Alum bar gave a bit of feedback. Maybe I should use this razor again to dial it back in! Aside form the less than perfect shave, I ended up smooth and smellin' great!

    It's been a while since I have used a Feather blade. I gotta use one again soon! SO many blades to use!

    Friday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    b-pure Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Badger
    3D Schick Type OC Razor
    Personna Injector blade
    Cella After Shave Balm

    The b-pure Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D Schick Type OC Razor and the Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I know what you mean Gary! There are so many blades and the truth is I like more than a few. This morning's shave was just excellent. If I had to pick just one blade, it would be a Feather.

    Friday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 3
    Williams Menthol SC
    Nip Man ASB
    Mennen Skin Bracer AS Splash

    Recently I received a backup tube of Williams Menthol cream so now I can afford to use the one I still have more often - this cream is a top favourite of mine and I’ve been having a lot of trouble to find a source for it. This stuff smells so nice, it’s so easy to lather, the menthol sensation is at a good middle of the road level, and it’s very skin friendly. The Nip Man balm from the UK smells awesome - very minty and it’s so cooling, moisturizing, as well as soothing, and the Skin Bracer aftershave……do I ever love it - that beautiful old school barbershop scent and that invigorating menthol kick. Two passes were enough to get a great BBS shave!

    Happy Thanksgiving Day - enjoy your weekend![​IMG]
