    With the exception of the 444 balm, none of this stuff is made nowadays.

    Colgate Cup soap (probably from the 50's)
    Semogue 1550 (late 90's)
    Joseph Rodgers straight razor (ca. 1820-1830)
    444 balm
    Old Spice Musk by Shulton (late 80s)

    Monday 31 October
    Happy Halloween-Menthol Monday

    Hot Shower, no coffee, yes I said it
    Proraso preshave balm
    Mama Bear's Awakenings stick
    Omega boar travel brush
    Gillette Milord, w/ Big Ben Blue blade (D1)
    Alcolado Glacial and Nivea Sensitive Balm

    This was a fantastic shave, close and very cool. The awakenings stick really gets me going and gives me a great shave and my skin feels great for the rest of the day. This was my last Big Ben Blue. I purchased two packs along time ago as part of sampler, and I have not used them in a while. Very good shave, almost BBS, I would give it a DFS+.

    I don't know why there is a rubber duck in my hotel room, but since he was done up like Frankenstein, I figured he should go in the Halloween picture.
    I hope everyone has shave this good today.

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Rapira day 5
    Godrej Menthol Mist SC :love029: :love029: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Osage Rub AS :love029: :love029: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Polo Original EDT

    One of the best shaves I've had in a while - everything worked out perfectly. The Godrej Menthol Mist and Osage Rub both froze my face the way they're supposed to, and I'd like to add that these 2 items are not for anyone who cannot handle menthol! ;) :biggrin:

    Blade: Astra (1)
    Brush: Altesse Badger
    Soap: Omega
    A/S: Aqua Velva

    Tried something different this morning and did my first pass with the Gillette (the only vintage Gillette I own that I really like) and did the last two passes with the straight so I could focus on refining my technique while shaving my neck. I usually spend too much time focusing on the first pass with the straight and not enough on the last two passes and as a result I usually need some touch up with a DE. I'm happy to report that the experiment was a to see if I put to use what I learned when I shave with a straight only (aiming for BBS shave with a far I've only been able to get DFS shaves).

    Voskhod (d2)
    Boosted Col. Conk Amber SS
    Ever Ready Boar
    Master Blue
    Herbissimo Mountain Juniper Edt

    Took my time and did a five pass BBS. Was close after 3 passes, but kept going. The EJ+Voskhod together are so forgiving a BBS was eventually guaranteed.

    Truck Stop Straight Shave:

    The Cranford 5/8
    EJ Best
    Palmolive Stick
    Brut AS Balm

    Didn't have much time so I did a real quick 2-passer, probably under ten mins. altogether. Not my closest by a longshot, bit it looks like I shaved today which I guess is the point...I guess.

    Congratulations, Dale! Quitting smoking is tough. I quit 25 years ago after smoking about 35 years.
