    I changed one thing in my shave tonight which I've never done before. And it was a good thing. Besides using PSO before shaving, I put some on before my third pass, and had a much better shave. This was really smooth and feels great and my best shave ever.

    I'm fine with anyone anywhere using them, it takes 10 sec to make one so no biggie buddy. :)

    Good morning friends. An effortless three pass shave today with the R41 wiping my stubble away cleanly and smoothly. The Jared soap performed very nicely as usual, this soap requires a good bit of water but works wonders with the right ratio and smells lovely. Dolphin smooth result. Have a great day guys. :happy069:

    Good morning guys. Very enjoyable shave this morning with the Red Tip, Tabac paved the way beautifully with it's outstanding cushion and glide. Finished off with my freezing Glacial Lemon Chill Balm and I'm ready to face the world. Have a great day friends. :D

    I think the Glacial LC will be my choice for next summer(that is, as an on-line purchase).

    My experiment today:

    Stirling glacial soap
    Mühle 33K257 brush
    Plenty of cold water - with a few handful of ice cubes
    Hone Type 15 razor - brass head frozen overnight
    Feather blade (1)
    Alum block
    Frozen tap water ice lolly instead of cold water rinse
    Alcolado Glacial ASL

    One word: Cold. :D

    Good morning friends. What a wonderful three pass shave this morning to end this work week. The N1 is a must have for injector fans, very smooth and exacting, works great under the chin. This new to me JabonMan soap which I purchased from Adam aka @Drygulch is a dream, it smells wonderfully citrusy and zesty while providing effortless protective lather. Have a great weekend guys. :happy069:

    I am testing out the Russian PIF blades I received and using three razors, Slim Adjustable, Flair Tip and my custom Gillette Short Comb all with cold water. When I am done, and it'll take a while, I will post a comprehensive list of how they worked out.

    So far so good -- I have not spent another dime on anything; but need to use Teflon tape (that I had) to get the threads to tighten the handle to the head. I can live with that but not forever. Now I am researching TTOs and adjustables...and for now just researching :) willpower is key 'cuz I see so much stuff I want when meandering TSD and checking members' personal 'dens'. My den would be the saddest picture ever posted on this forum -- it makes me laugh though and I am getting awesome shaves and creating challenges for myself re: technique, etc...

    Good morning guys. Awesome shave to start this early morning. Three easy breezy passes for a dolphin smooth finish, with Route 66 Lumberjack paving the way with it's amazing cushiony, slick lather. I'm loving the Fine L'Orange like there's no tomorrow. Have a great day friends. :cool:

    Good morning friends. Such a wonderful three pass shave today with the N1. This JabonMan SS is so lovely, it smells like lime incense and has a really nice freeze to it while providing exceptional performance. I only wish this soap maker was more accessible. Dolphin smooth and refreshed, ready to face the world confidently. Have a great day friends. :cool:
