    Great picture. Need to order that soap. But after my recent razor acquisition wifey has put a temporary good on me getting anything new. So in looking for a way to justify it to her. Lol

    Good morning guys. First shave with the GEM Pushbutton and what a shave it was. Three passes for a dolphin smooth end result. This razor is wonderful, the handle has a protrusion and notch at the end tip which allow me to rest my finger on it and creates a pivot for the head to intuitively find the perfect shave angle. Very maneuverable and fun to use. [​IMG] First time with TABAC also and it's just awesome, very cushiony and slick and I love the strong scent. [​IMG] Very pleased today! Have a great day folks. Tomorrow I plan on shaving with the GEM G Bar, I'm riding the GEM Train![​IMG][​IMG]

    Good morning friends. First shave with the GEM G-Bar today. Awesome razor, very zippy and easy to maneuver. I went full throttle with this razor [​IMG] This razor seems more efficient to me than the PushButton. Love it, my only gripe would be that I wish the handle was a bit grippier but that's not a deterrent in any way. This PPA CiderHouse 5 has become a top soap for me, smells of apple and cinnamon in a beautiful fashion and performance is outstanding. Dolphin smooth result with ease. Have a wonderful day guys.

    Really starting to fall in love with the mongoose that Scott let me try out. Guess I'll be on the lookout for one here soon.

    Added m-bomb to everything and ice is always part of the shave nowadays.

    Good morning guys. Such a wonderful shave this morning with the E2, very easy and maneuverable. Easy to use my non-dominant hand with this one too. Riding the E train! [​IMG] Very slick, cushiony lather from the Tabac shave stick and lovely scent. Dolphin smooth after three passes. What a way to start the day. Have a great weekend friends. [​IMG]

    Good morning friends. Lovely three pass shave the R41 this morning with a dolphin smooth end result. Stirling Glacial Mita is such a refreshing soap and provides such outstanding performance, everyone should try it. Glacial Lemon Chill fortified this arctic blast leaving my face frozen solid for twenty minutes after my shave was done. Beautiful! :love055: Have a wonderful weekend guys. :smile :):

Riding the Pal train....... :transport022: Route 66 Lumberjack is such a beautifully scented soap providing such excellent cushion and glide, lovely. :love055: Finished off with some freeze from my Glacial Lemon Chill balm. Have a great day friends. :smile :):

    Good morning friends. Wonderful shave this morning with the Evahs, very well balanced razor and it's quite hefty. Smooth three pass shave routine ending in a dolphin smooth result with Speick shave cream paving the way and finishing off with an icy Glacial Lemon Chill balm for good measure. Enjoy your day guys. :smile :):

    later on this year, I'll have a good sense of the "tar" smell on the body-not from Grandpa, but...well.....you'll see. But it might LEAD me to the old man later. :).

    Good morning friends. Easy three pass shave today with the G-Bar, very efficient razor. La Toja produced wonderful protective, slick lather and it all came together for a dolphin smooth finish. This was a new GEM blade and it's been my experience that these don't feel as smooth on the first day as they do on the second or third. Glacial Lemon Chill balm iced the finish and I'm off. Have a great day folks. :smile :):
