    Doug, I had some medical issues going on that have prevented me from riding. The issues are behind me, so I need to get back on the bike. I hope you have been able to get in a few rounds of golf.

    Razor: Gillette super speed X1- Mfg 1952, nice smooth milder razor but with a wider Kai SS Blade it brings it up a notch to my liking.
    Blade: Kai SS (2) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth with excellent longevity. Extra wide by 9/1000 of inch, great for milder razors.
    Soap: Razorock The Dead Sea, nice unique scent with excellent lather qualities+ one of my favorite soaps.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm "Viper" boar(1st use) excellent lather generator, great split end smooth tips, great scrubber + great lather painter. [​IMG] this color of handle and feel.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock The Dead Sea aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Gillette 1952 SS + Kai SS blade.

    That's an amazingly well-preserved antique razor.

    What do you think of that super-expensive sauce you've got there? I still have yet to even smell it. I bet even at the super upscale Las Vegas malls they probably have this locked inside a counter like jewelry.

    That is a cool metal Old Spice aftershave flask. I think I should try to find one on ebay someday.

    I wear this Bay Rum when it gets cold out. I'm at least a few months away from putting on this scent.
