    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    TARMAX SE by Tom
    Treet CS
    Cella ASB

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TARMAX SE Razor by Tom with a Treet CS Blade gave me an exciting shave. I managed to cut myself in numerous places. I think I will take a day off from shaving. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/new Gillette
    Gada Cool Mint SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    This Gada Cool Mint is probably the cheapest cream I ever had - damn, I think I paid a dollar for it at a Lebanese convenience store about three years ago. It’s from Lebanon, its scent is minty/lemony, a dab on both cheeks is enough to produce thick, rich, slick lather with a nice cooling sensation, and the postshave feeling is so soothing as well as comfortable. The Prep and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave both completed the job superbly. Smooth as silk from three quick passes!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!

    DE SOTD, September 15th 2021, Won this razor on a fund raising raffle and it arrived yesterday. It is called a TARMAX adjustable DE and it fair to say American Ingenuity is alive and well in our shaving world.
    Tom White invents & designs products and is a seasoned machinist and likes designing razors in different concepts as a Hobby. This adjustable razor was used for my first shave and really did not expect a lot of difference to my other adjustable razors but I was wrong. The TARMAX first pass was smooth and quieter than other adjustables, had to inspect thinking it was not cutting whiskers, but was like shaving on a setting 3-4 on a Fatboy for shaving comparison. It was set on 5 of 8 different settings references on 1st pass so I cranked it to 8 of 8 and on 2nd pass & pickups(you can go pass 8 setting because of design). The results were very good for first time out and received a DFS,BBS. Sweet spot angle seems around 45 degrees. Because of the blade sits flat basically it gives a very different smooth shave. I enjoyed the shave and like variety so it is scores a high score IMO.

    Razor: TARMAX adjustable DE by @twhite (only 4 made)-Mfg 2021, the razor is made of Aluminum and holds a blade excellent, heats up quickly with hot water so no cold steel to face, interesting concept. Gives a smooth shave and is a keeper.
    Blade: Gillette Astra SP (testing standard)- Sharp & smooth, great longevity.
    Soap: Speick stick, nice spicy scent, excellent lather qualities. Tripled milled soap and well made.
    Brush: Yaqi Viper 24mm boar (new), Excellent lather generator, nice soft split end hair tips, nice scrubber, great lather painter, joy to use a nice boar brush IMO.
    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: Witch hazel to clean skin, Lavanda aftershave +a dollop of CeraVe balm (scentless).
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]excellent shave with my TARMAX adjustable DE with a Astra SP blade.
