    Talk about a rare razor, Dave! I’ve always admired your Williams split, even over at the other place! How’s the shave?

    Beautifully staged, as usual, Jim! That is a cool looking razor? Is that your copper CG?

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/new Minora
    MSC Frosted Spearmint SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Frosted Spearmint AS Spray

    What a frigid menthol blast this was - perhaps not so much from the Frosted Spearmint soap, although it certainly is pretty damned cold but from the matching aftershave. The soap’s lovely scent filled the bathroom, the lather was so thick, rich, and super slick, the menthol sensation felt great, and the postshave feeling was perfecto. The Prep and the Frosted Spearmint aftershave were a terrific finish. The new Minora blade helped to ensure a fabulous three pass BBS shave!

    Have a great day - stay safe and healthy!

    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    The Brush B-3 by Tom
    Gillette NEW SC/Astra SP
    Darwin-Stoll Jr./Gem SS PTFE
    Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with The Brush B-3 by Tom Badger. I did pass one with the Gillette NEW SC with an Astra SP and the second pass and touch ups with the Darwin-Stoll Jr. 3D printed razor with a Gem SS PTFE blade which gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC.

    The Darwin-Stoll Jr. printed razor is the creation of Roger Quintero, AKA @SlimGem .

    Switched to the NEW LC to keep the OC in OCtober...this razor is still my favourite vintage Gillette. Such a great combination of smoothness and efficiency for me.
    Have a great day all!

    Great shave, Jason. Sadly, I never could wrap my nose around the CF Lime.

    Thank you, Joseph. I love the 'straight up lime' scent. Pretty darn slick as well. It puts me in a great mood to splash on a healthy dose of the excellent Eau Sauvage.

    8 shaves was enough on the last blade so put a fresh one in this morning. Treated to a very nice and comfortable 2 pass shave this morning.

    Enjoy your day.

    Well, we have yet another Throwback Thursday upon us. Seemed like just yesterday we had our previous one. That's the short week for ya.

    prep-Nivea 4 Men Bodywash(Fresh Wave)in shower
    shave-Central Texas Soaps(Grandpa's Barbershop) soap*
    brush-Jayaruh #59
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot + DisposeABLE
    A.S.-Clubman Original(6 oz).**

    *Owner Greg Smith, by preparing this, had his OWN "throwback" to when his grandpa would take him to the local barbershop for haircuts(course Gramps would ask for a shave in addition)

    **-1810 is the year printed on this aftershave, and many other Clubman products. I suppose we should accept that, as that was the year Edouard Pinaud was BORN, not the year he got his Clubman going(1830). To me, this is a tough call, but we must realize that if we aren't born yet, we can't start a business 20 years later.
