    Cold Water Rinse

    Jayaruh #446 Badger/Boar
    J.A. Henckels Rapide
    J.A. Henckels wedge
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Osage Rub

    This week I am using my J.A. Henckels with a newly sharpened wedge (Sharpened by Tom White). This is also the first time I have used this new brush. The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #446 Badger/Boar brush. I stropped the blade really good. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Razor and a J.A. Henckels wedge blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Dickinson's Witch Hazel and then Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday:

    A great Grand Freeze Indian style!

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Astra Green
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero SS
    Prep ASB
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero AS Toner
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Oh la la it just doesn’t get any colder or better than this - the menthol power of this Absolute Zero soap and aftershave is off the charts just like any of the Stirling Glacials. The scent is so nice - it’s aquatic with minty notes, the soap’s vegan formula gives it AWESOME lather that has tons of slickness, the freeze starts immediately and it gets stronger with each pass, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep gave me lots of additional postshave care, and the Absolute Zero aftershave toner went on frigidly cold with lots of soothing as well as moisturizing. Finally the magnificent Bleu de Chanel fragrance and I’m ready for the new week. Three passes with my Canadian Tech which was loaded with a brand new Astra Green blade gave me a dynamite BBS shave that was so much fun!

    Wishing you all a good week - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Shave of the Week Starting 9/18/2023

    SNMIRN razor
    Gillette 7 0'clock super stainless blade
    RazoRock Plissoft brush
    Yardley SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Various A/S

    The SNMIRN razor has a slightly weird name but it works very well for me. I got this one a few years ago and it was only $9.99 shipped to me. At that price I thought it would be low quality but, surprisingly, it's pretty nice. A bit heavy but pretty well balanced and gives me a fine, comfortable, close shave. I like it. The RazoRock Plissoft brush is not my favorite, don't care for the handle but it works well. Great lather from the Yardley as always. So my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.
