    Thanks, it has just the right amount of depth and width to bowl lather. Plus the great plus is I paid only $1 for it.

    Just read your posts on the making of this Bay Rum. Quite a project indeed! Sounds like it turned out very well though and it was well worth the time to "Home-Brew" a couple of bottles. Well done Sir! :happy096:

    Hot Shower
    RazoRock glycerin
    Three tubs of Tcheon Fung Sing, arrived yesterday from a pass around to try. Today I tried Crema Purissima. It has a pleasant crisp smell, the smell is tropical (it is hard to describe). It lathered up nicely, great moisturizing, it was slick too.
    Shavemac Silvertip Badger
    1905 Gillette Open Comb
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Three passes for a near prefect DFS. I read a great statement " do not force a BBs shaves, let it come to you", truly believe this.

    Prep: FitjarSoap Pre Shave Soap
    Razor: Merkur HD
    Blade: Gillette Nacet
    Brush: Merkur Futur
    Soap: L’Occitane Cade
    Aftershave: L’Occitane Splash
    Moisturiser: L’Occitane & Fitjarsoap Shea Butter Moisturiser

    Today I went for the L’occitane series. The soap is too good to be ignored, but the AS splash and AS Balm usually leaves something to be desired. Such was also the case today. Great soap, but a few hours after I put on the moisturiser I felt the need for some extra relief from Fitjarsoap.

    I tried the Gillette Nacet blade today. Not bad, pretty sharp, but a little on the rough side of comfortable. Not noticeable during the shave, but I noticed a little burn afterwards.
    I’ll give it another try tomorrow before I make my final judgement
    Here's a picture with a "bucket of paint" and some shaving gear :)

    Day fifteen of the federal shutdown, and day fifteen for this Shark Super Chrome blade. The Semogue 1305 did an excellent job of face lathering with the TOBS Lavender. What a nice shave for my 66th birthday. Two passes and some touch ups left me near BBS. Topped it off with some Dickinson's WH and Aqua Velva Ice Blue, and I am feeling young again. I cleaned up and palm-stropped the blade for another day. Here's hoping the blade doesn't have to go into default.​

    Frode, the Nacet blades are indeed sharp but I also find them not too kind to my face. They leave me sort of irritated at times. :(

    My 13th shave with this amazing amazing Personna 74! If you ever have the chance to buy one, anything under $5 a piece is a steal! Just for the experience alone! Thank you to my good pal Ryan for sending these my way!
