    Jayaruh #426
    Gillette Twinjector
    Personna Injector
    CWR
    Lucky Tiger AS

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #426 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Twinjector with a Personna Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Super Speed/new Gillette
    Master Soap Creations Frosted Bay Rum SS
    Prep ASB
    Krampert’s Bay Rum AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    Fernando is a true soap genius - his Frosted Bay Rum soap has such a beautiful scent, the tallow formula gives awesome lather which is so thick, rich, and slick, the menthol sensation is heavenly, and the postshave feeling is so comfortable. The Prep and the Krampert’s Bay Rum aftershave completed the job superbly. What a great shave this was!

    Have a good month - enjoy your shaves and stay safe![​IMG]

    Soap: Razorock What the puck Lime, nice strength of citrus limy scent with excellent lather qualities. Nice change up today.

    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Proraso Green aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm with HA.

    And we see that another "Throwback Thursday"is headed our way. Here's my lineup:

    prep-Nivea 4 Men(ICE)in shower
    shave-Clubman Shave Cream*
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce
    A.S.-Clubman Original*

    *y'know, perhaps there IS a reason we see "1810" on most Clubman products....the birth of Edouard Pinaud. Course who knew he would go on to produce the greatness of Clubman 20 years later? But, no Pinaud, no Clubman, right? I suppose I shouldn't get so grumpy about why it says 1810(his birth)not 1830(when he got Clubman up and going).

    Showered with a nice, lavender-scented soap made by a friend, as part of a wedding favor. I used the Ming Shih DE, with a Feather blade & Sara's Creations shave soap to do my underarms. Will do the legs with the Shavette tomorrow, in all likelihood.

    Dang! That's a sweet looking razor. Who makes it & what type of blade does it use?

    It is a beauty. Blackland Sabre that uses GEM blades. I'm using the L1 plate now and I'll be switching to the L2 plate in a couple of days.
