    Saturday Straights' Shave

    Cold Water Wash
    Mitchell's Wool Fat
    B-400 by Tom
    Rocket 5/8
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap face lathered well with the B-400 Brush by Tom. I did two passes with the Rocket 5/8 Straight Razor and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    A quick pic and post for Saturday morning:

    Not shown - my 50's Super Speed, my Plissoft 26mm synthetic, and my Nivea facial wash. There's a Wriggly Tin Spicy Bay Rum soap in the white container behind the Prep. Krampert's Bay Rum and Aramis as my fragrance.

    How do you like the Chubby synth, Mark? I haven’t noticed a synthetic that is significantly better than a Yaqui (which are cheap), so haven’t seen the need to spend the money on one. Having said that, BAD flows through my veins looking for new brushes...

    Randy I love the Chubby 2 Synthetic. I agree with Rudy Vey. It's the best synthetic out there.

    With this shave menu, you can decide for yourself, which smells more like the SHULTON Old Spice, the "New Spice" or the Stoylin?
