    Menthol Monday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #424
    Cobra Classic
    Feather Professional
    Osage Rub

    The TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Cobra Classic Razor and the Feather Professional Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shave of the Week Starting 26 Sept 2022

    Parker Variant razor
    Gilletter Silver Blue blade
    Shave Revolution Synthetic brush
    Gillette Regular SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Nice nice shave to start the week with, smooth/comfortable/effective, it's what we're all looking for I think. All the parts worked well together and my face is happy. The Gillette SC is very nice too, lathers easily with good glide/protection with a clean/soapy scent (to me). Now go enjoy your day folks. BTW, missed last week cuz had the opportunity to visit relatives I hadn't seen for over 10 years but it was very very short notice so of f I went. It was a great trip.

    Micromatic Menthol Monday! Cool morning here. Good day to cut wood. I am building a stack before I bring out the wood splitter. I will split all of it at once.

    Razor - GEM Micromatic MMBT
    Blade - GEM Personna SS (4)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Green
    Soap - Proraso Green (Bloomed)
    Brush - Simpson "Commodore"
    Post shave - Thayers Toner (unscented) & Geo F Trumper "Skinfood" sandalwood
    AS - Pinaud Clubman "Whiskey Woods"

    I will shower later after working on wood. Washed face and warmed the scupper & brush with HOT water. Bloomed soap for a few minutes and thn loaded brush over the scupper to create a bunch of warm lather that cooled the face on application. I did a 2-pass shave WTG & ATG with no cleanup. Pleasant and smooth afterwards. Alum bar was silent. I think I have the technique down well. No cuts, nicks, or weepers.

    The bullet tip is a nice shaver! Tomorrow I will use the Star 1912. I want to finish this blade this week to end the month.No shaving buddy this morning. He stayed downstairs lounging near my chair waiting for me to come back down. LOL
