Lessons in "fast 'n loose" lathering available online for the low, low price of 25 Bitcoin.
Need I elaborate?
Enlighten me, please.
Oh, I'm fastin' and I'm loosenin'...no instruction needed. All I'm getting for it are:
1. Excellent Lathers
2. A top view of a seemingly bottomless triple milled puck
3. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome...
When you are dealing with a miserly latherer, Maestro, it is best to avoid eye contact and move along quietly.

Blackland Sabre Lvl 1
Ethos Bay Rum Shave Soap
PAA Atomic Bay Rum
Happy Friday Jr; almost there. I decided to weigh the last night. Thus far I have used 92 grams of soap. I think this one will be done within 15 shaves more or less. Going back to the Sabre this morning confirmed my guess. The Sabre is smoother than the Predator but a touch less efficient. Either way both are fantastic razors. I hope everyone has a great day. Take care.
testing a theory..
Stirling Arkadia/Shave # 113
My name is Charlie, and I'm a recovering lather miser. I will be soap-rised if this puck is still around by the end of the week. For more information, follow me as aesop_on_steriods on all social media platforms.
I hope you're all having a fantastic day.
It has been on on-going project, Joseph.
I know, I know...

Valobra Patchouly~~SOC Boar~~Cobra Classic/Feather Professional~~Burt's Bees Bay Rum
RR Hawk Jaws w Feather Pro
Oumo Flattop/ Rubberset 400 #3
Dior Eau Sauvage
I enjoyed the Hawk well enough this week. Onto something else tomorrow.
The weekday summary: I think the soap level is going down but my goal of finishing this one in September is not looking good.
This week was dedicated to big brushes, I think I need to up my game to monster brushes if I am going to finish this one in September. The razors deployed this week were Dovo Masters, Ali's Blades, Grim Butcher, and my gold Joris. I guess the Joris didn't want to be seen hanging out with a bunch of straights.
For the lovers of stank here is what I was over spraying this week. The peeling label is a decant of Creed Green Irish Tweed.
I'm sorta/kinda 3017ing my after shaves. I say this because I try to use one about 4 or 5 times a week, but sneek in another one 2 or 3 times.
I finished my RiteAid/Daylogic Arctic Blue (Aqua Velva Knockoff) about a week ago. Now I'm trying to finish a bottle Barbasol (Skin Bracer Knockoff). (I think I have 3 full bottles left in my stock.) I also have the Real McCoy Aqua Velva and Skin Bracer bottles that have plenty left. This merely scratches the surface of my after shave stock.
I never have 2 blades going at once -- I never use a new blade until I've finished the last one. I don't, however, try to finish a tuck of one brand without rotating to other brands.

Asylum Rx Injector
Ethos Bay Rum Shave Soap
PAA Atomic Bay Rum Aftershave
Happy Friday! Happy Friday! It has been a week for sure. I have made great progress on the soap while having fantastic shaves. I hope everyone has a great day and take care.
(KEEP RECOVERIN' BUDDEH).
Got any more knock-offs?
I think I have one bottle of Dollar General Splash (Brut Knockoff).
The AV and Skin Bracer Knockoffs are virtually indistinguishable from the Real McCoys. The DG Brut is very, very close. Only the DG costs significantly less than the Real McCoy -- but if I'm not mistaken it is no longer made.
If it counts, I have several bottles of vintage Avon Fresh Spice (very similar to Vintage Old Spice.) Also several Avon Spicey (not quite as close to Old Spice, but great nonetheless.)

XPEC Original~~TSN X LE~~Gillette #44/Polsilver~~Oud al Layl
Not pictured is the Eufros ASB. Continuing its 3017.
Not a huge fan of this razor or the blade. Of all the Polish Wizamets I have tried, these are the weakest.
The Gillette #44 has a VERY small blade gap. One must really ride the cap to get some blade feel.
It's pretty, but looks aren't everything. Right @wristwatchb
Schick E3 w vintage PAL (1)
APShave flattop/ Sapele
Shaved yesterday, but ended up not having time to post. The next SE up was this Injector that came as a gift from @Screwtape many years ago now, right at the start of my wetshaving journey. Like all the Schick injectors I’ve owned, it is such an easy shaver.
As for the focus, still no sign of the tub bottom.
Have a great weekend all.
