    Stirling SEptember!!!

    September 29

    Razor - Gem Micromatic OCMM
    Blade - CVS Carbon
    Soap - Stirling Sheep [​IMG]
    Brush - 30DC LE
    Post - Alum


    Since I started on the big dog antibiotics today and those always knock me for a loop, I decided tonight was going to be a no-shave night. Yeah, ok, couldn't let you all down again. Bronchitis or no bronchitis, the shave must go on. It's been several weeks since a head shave too so that definitely needs to be done by morning. I have three appointments tomorrow I have to make and I just need to man up. You'll notice the CJB out to play in the picture. Yep, heavy head shave requires the pain stick whether my hands are fully steady or not, or even if a sudden coughing fit could lead to some, ummmmm....customization of my scalp. I'm good enough to do this, right? And, assuming I survive that I figured the OCMM is a good SE to return to. One of the best and it can bite too. I think I'm good enough to handle it.

    For the soap - it's Sheep Sunday so back to the original Stirling Sheep for the face shave.. The extra cushion and slickness from the mutton tallow is a secret weapon against aggressive razors, and with the 30DC LE brush (original) I knew I'd have enough lather to mail out to everyone. (No, don't look, I didn't save any. Sorry). The usual VDH brush and soap for the head shave. My wife was a bit skeptical of me taking on the head shave with a pain stick in my somewhat weakened state but all went well. Perfect result. Off to the face with the OCMM. Three passes, smooth but noisy - just the way I like it - and the baby is in the house. I'm now sitting comfortably, smooth, and enjoying the wonderful flavor of cough drops and cherry koolaid. Yummmmm.

    The bowl really makes this set pop. The whole shave set was built around the bowl. Once I saw it on Etsy I knew the Polish Consul aftershave was the right stuff to use with it.

    Good morning all!
    Another magnificent shave today with the GFBSST. The more i use it, the better it gets. Today is the last shave for it though. I've 4 notches on the blade and whilst the blade is still good, It is the last SOTD for this month and timing is good for a new setup for Fat-tober.

    The Boots soap is magnificent. I love shave sticks and this one has a great holder and is a joy to use. Great slickness and post shave as well. The Vulfix V5 is a good little face latherer and all in all, this setup has super synergy.
    Finished off with a matching AS and Balm (which will help my face in the cold wind this morning) and i am skipping out the door! What to use for the next setup? Hmmmm.


    Happy shaves to all. :)
