    Star 1912 style razor
    Gem Stainless blade
    JR #85 synthetic brush
    TBS Maca Root SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Pinaud Citrus Musk cologne

    Think this blade is done, didn't get rough or feel bad. It just doesn't cut well anymore. Still, a fine shave was had and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks

    I enjoy the performance of Tabac soap & find the scent acceptable. Do the AS, cologne, and deodorant have the same scent?

    To me, the after shave has a slightly stronger scent and the cologne more subtle, maybe more refined, but they seem identical. I'm still waiting for my soap to arrive from England and will know when it shows up.

    Tuesday`s shave, 9/26/2017

    Razor: Personnan Flex Head
    Blade: Gillette Twinjector (2)
    Pre shave: Homemsde
    Brush: VDH Badger
    Lather: Proraso Green
    AS: Brut Splsh On
    News paper date: Dec. 24,1943

    One beautiful shave, if I have to say so myself. WTG/ATG, slight amount of clean up. Proraso and the Twinjector (double blade) are probably one of the greatest pairings I have ever used, smooth, clean, close. Somewhat like ice skating on perfect fresh ice. Solid BBS, I will try to duplicate this as many times as I can. The only problem, I may get bored with near perfection................ Nah! Love to feel a really smooth face, sometimes even a nice smooth `upper face`. God bless and happy shaving.

    P.S. Sorry `LiL Abner got lost somewhere in the shuffle.

    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #206
    GEM 1914
    CVS SE
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Pinaud Clubman

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Williams Mug Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #206 badger brush. I did two passes with the GEM 1914 razor and a CVS SE blade. I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    SOTD 9.26.2017

    Pre-shave: hot shower
    Soap: VDH Deluxe puck
    Brush: Marvy boar
    Razor: Eversharp Hydromatic I2
    Blade: Chinese Schick (2)
    Post-shave: Dickinson's witch hazel, Nivea Sensitive Balm, Pinaud Bay Rum

    Enjoyed a nice shave after a day of lawn work. This is the 2nd time I've used this razor, acquired 3 days ago. I like it, but I'm liking all of my injector razors so far. I went with the VDH soap today because I like the scent, it's easy to build into a slick protective lather. I had a 2 pass, comfortable, close shave with some clean up on the neck. I got one nick on my neck which is still burning a little, but that was entirely my fault. I got carried away trying to clean up some stubborn stubble on the neck.

    Enjoy your shaves, everyone!
