    Let's see those shaves for the week! As always, bonus points for pictures!
    Oh, and don't forget it is TTO week. I forgot when I planned this shave, but I will play for the rest of the week!

    I will get things started with my gear for tomorrow:
    Custom Cocobolo Edwin Jagger Gregorian
    Cocobolo Knotty Badger Silvertip
    Crabtree and Evelyn Sienna Soap, After Shave Balm, and Cologne

    GDCarrington Burma Shave

    Since I am going to be very busy at work the next three weeks I will begin to post these the night before.
    I wanted to participate in TTO week, but I will have to get in to work earlier so that will be out. To solace myself, I will enjoy, albeit briefly the following tomorrow.

    Tomorrow's shave is celebrating TTO week.

    Gillette Super Adjustable
    Red Personna
    Penworks Finest
    Proraso White ASB

    I got this Gillette yesterday at an antique fair for a couple of dollars. I am excited to try it as it is my first adjustable! I have no idea what the setings will be like but hey, that's the fun of it!:)

    Monday 7 November (Menthol Monday-TTO week)

    A hot shower
    Gillette Slim (6), w/ Lord Platinum (D1)
    Berkley 46, face lather
    Palmolive SC (menthol)
    Alcolado Glacial and Proraso ASB

    An early shave since I am travelling out this morning, going back to IL to finish what I started. After reading Scott Wein's post about soap or cream, I realized that I had not used my Palmolive menthol cream in awhile, so I broke it out for Menthol Monday TTO. This is a nice cream with a good scent, and tons of menthol, a great wake-up. It also has some very good skincare properties, I should take this on the road with me, but the bag is already packed for the ongoing tour of hotel bathroom's.

    The Gillette slim set on 6 seemed to do a very nice job today, a very good shave in three passes. Still a bit rough under the jaw, so I will give it a DFS. A nice frosty monday morning shave. Hope everyone has a nice week.

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Rapira day 6
    Palmolive Cool SC :love029: :love029: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Barbon AS :love029: :love029: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    JHL Cologne

    There's nothing like freezing your face off on Menthol Monday - the Palmolive Cool cream from the Balkans and the Barbon aftershave are 2 of the best Champions of Chilliness. Although the Rapira blade gave me another terrific shave, I think it's best to change it for tomorrow. ;) :biggrin:

    Monday, November 7th

    Razor: Wilkinson Sticky*
    Blade: Schick Plus Platinum*
    Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE*
    Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Soap: Trumper Violets (Tallow)*
    A/S: Floid Amber

    Another great shave using mostly discontinued items (marked with an *). The one vintage item that I am in short supply of is vintage aftershaves. Fortunately I have a few on the way -a vintage Yardley and an Avon Tai Winds. All in the name of the Monday "Mourning" Shave. ;)
