    Inspired by Old Spice. Actually, the A.S. is Old Spice Classsique, but it ain't from Shulton, although it lists the year Old Spice began-1938, which WAS Shulton.I call it New Spice because, again, it ain't from Shulton.

    Dry shave, except for around the apple. DFS+, no nicks. Quick, light buffing with a very sharp blade is the key.

    The Old Spice Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #395 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Lather Catcher and the J.A. Henckels Wedge Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 12
    Arko Shaving Stick
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    Brut Deodorant Spray
    Brut AS Splash
    Brut Cologne

    It’s been too long since I last used my Arko stick so I decided to pull it out this morning and I’m so happy that I did. Wowzer, it gave me two boatloads of some of the thickest, richest, slickest lather I ever had along with its famous citronella/soapy scent that I love so much, and such a comfortable postshave feeling. I really enjoy the CutiBase moisturizer because it’s so soothing, and once again I was a Brut boy - that scent is so old school and beautiful. Three passes left me mega BBS - another tip top shave!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe!

    To all members of the Jewish faith I want to wish you Shana Tovah! [​IMG]

    Razor - 1907 Ever Ready "Lather Catcher"
    Blade - GEM Personna SS (3)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Blue
    Soap - The Dead Sea
    Brush - Simpson Commodore badger
    Post shave - Thayers Toner "Lavender" & Captain's Choice "Venture" balm
    AS - Pinaud "Whiskey Woods"

    I showered before bed so, I washed and warmed face with HOT washcloth while warming the skupper & brush. Filled skupper inside and aslo the bowl with HOT water. Spoon measured a dab of soap and it worked to a nice lather rather easily. I worked it in the bowl and then continued to work it on my face to make it really creamy and slick. No bits left on bottom of the skupper when I rinsed it out. The lather catcher gave a most pleasant shave that I could have stopped at one pass but, I did a 2-pass WTG & ATG with no cleanup. I also did the dome with same razor. Smooth all around! No cuts, nicks, or weepers. Alum bar was silent again! AS didn't even tingle.

    This razor give such nice feedback and I can see why it is called "Lather Catcher". I can do one whole side of my face and it catches all the lather. Really nice! LOTS of feedback as well. It is the loudest razor I own!

    A most pleasant "Lather Catcher" Sunday shave!
