Thanksgiving Day, 2022
Arko~~Simpson CH2 Synthetic~~Cobra Classic/Feather Professional~~Sailor Jerry Spiced Navy After Shave
While I can't say that the Arko is getting better with use, I can mos def© attest to the fact that my technique with the Cobra has much improved.
Today's neck work was darn good, sans skipping and irritation.
The handle, as I have stated, is beautiful to gaze upon, but wasn't thoroughly tested by the manufacturer, vis-a-vis slipperiness.
I am reminded of my Wolfman with its Darwin handle. It's that slippery.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my TSD brethren.
Still using the same gear, I completed Arko shave # 5 today. It was another two-passer with excellent results. I'm shaving about every other day, and that seems to work well.
I face lather using the Arko as a shave stick. I think it will last forever.
My Bride and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today at a State Park. The weather is beautiful, so we look forward to our outing. 2022 has been a good year, and we are thankful for much.
Happy Thanksgiving, Joseph. That's is a beautiful setup and a wonderful shave!
Try placing an o-ring or wrapping a rubber band around the base of the Cobra handle to improve the grip. I have a Trac II handle that uses three o-rings. Works great.
good day gents.another simple work shave.fine arko face lather with a great brush.the drug store omega.smooth 2 passer with the brit flare tip ss/platinum combo.if i were to start my wetshaving over again,this set up would be more than adequate.

The Arko has an amazing ability to renew itself over-night.
My arm was tired after loading the soap:
After the first pass:
Dat's a lot o' suds!

Arko~~Simpson~~Cobra Classic~~Jerry Juice
There's not a lot to add except the admiration I have for shavers who use the same gear daily.
I am lathering like there is no tomorrow.
Doesn't seem to be helping...
It has been quite the soap opera in your shave den this past week, Joseph.
I know...I know...
‘3017’ Day 11
No end in sight, but very enjoyable so far. A great scent and a slick lather. It has become harder than a few of my soaps, fwiw.
sunday work shave..
good morning gents,fine arko work shave,arko lather was slick,loads and builds easily with the dc tuxedo brush.smooth 2 passer with the tech/kcg combo.nice heavy all brass/nickel,sharp blade.#74 lime fragrance to finish.have a fine day gents.
In honor of you weirdos using Arko, I paused my use of Institut Karite Soap for a day and broke out the stick.
Nice Shave 2 pass shave taking care of 5 days growth.

Arko Shave # 6
Gillette New SC
Gillette Silver Blue DE blade (2)
30 Day Crew LE Poculi handle w/28 mm APShaveCo SynBad flat top knot
Two passes with this world class setup easily clobbered three days of growth, resulting in a comfortable, near BBS mug. I skipped the post shave foo-foo regimen as we were late for church.
Arko is a top-performing soap, and I'm quite happy with it. This stick should last for well over 100 shaves.
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Arko~~Simpson CH2~~Cobra Classic/Feather Professional Super~~Jerry Juice~~Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
OK, I have come to the conclusion, that, while Arko creates a solid lather, it's not slick enough to protect my neck on the ATG pass.
Admittedly, I have a sensitive neck---HOWEVER, I have been successful with my 2011 R41 on this pass, ergo---
it's the soap's fault.
Picked up this TF gem for a very good price on basenotes and I couldn't be happier.
