    Today is my birthday, so I am taking a day off from OCtober and using one of my birth year razors, the 46-47 Gillette Aristocrat. Alas, I don't have an open comb from 1947.

    Just debating as to if I should "turn the heat" on for the season. House is down to 60F right now. I just can't understand why anyone would shave with cold water

    Marvelous shave with the Schick E2 this morning. Heavenly lather from the KMF shave cream. Three wonderful passes for a refreshing dolphin smooth finish. Have a great day friends. :)

    Last year, I went straight through the winter doing cold water shaves. It's become a way of life for me. Love it. Hot water is for showers.

    I like them, they kinda give some class to the products. I've seen some amber bottles like these, but not on Ebay. Shipping cost was high so I didn't order them. Maybe someday they'll be on Ebay for the same price as these.

    Magnificent shave with the Schick N1 injector razor this morning loaded with a twin blade. Tabac shave stick is an excellent product providing incredibly protective and creamy lather, I can't recommend this shave stick enough. As an added bonus it seems to last forever. Three refreshing passes for a dolphin smooth finish. Have a great day friends. :)

    Marvelous shave with the PAL Injecto-Matic this morning. Excellent, creamy, slick, beautifully scented lather from the JabonMan Lime Incienso (Lime Incense) shave soap. Three passes for a refreshing dolphin smooth finish. Have a great day friends. :)
