thank you Jim..
Thank you for the kind words. I have a few slants in the den, with one rises to to top

The WS Classic will be a wonderful addition to your DE razor collection..I really like the two piece design .My only gripe is it lacks in weight slightly, which some people are tempted to add extra pressure when shaving,but isn't necessary to do so. I rinse more regular in-between each pass too. They pair together excellently with an assertive blade,and give a close presentable socially acceptable shave.
I am going to assume you are kidding, but in case you aren't, I was referring to the 30 Day Focus thread, which might help you regain your lost Feather AC skills.
"I've had a mid bloodbath shave since I've lost my whole technique for nearly 3 and half-years without using my Feather AC-SS its time get my hairy ass back into the ball game all over again..... SHIT!!"
Now, if my further drinking doesn't disturb you...
Menthol Monday's Shave
Cold Water Rinse
Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap
Gem Micromatic Clog-Pruf
Personna GEM SS PTFE
Today is Day 14 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Gem Micromatic Clog-Pruf.
The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #18 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Micromatic Flying Wing razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
This combination of of Snake Bite and Osage Rub will leave you weeping (in a good way). A most awesome combination for Menthol Monday.
I see you got your camera back, Guy. Nice shave!
