    I enjoy the background items as much as the shavy bits in your photos @brit .

    Is that a 2CV?

    Mild thread hijack. I went back to look for the 2CV, raised another question.

    There is some Pinaud Whiskey Woods in there. Any thoughts to share about it?

    I just noticed that Pinaud has several boozy AS. It ties into my tendency to turn airline booze into AS:

    I was thinking I:
    1 should try the Whisky Woods (as AS, not on the rocks)
    2 could spare a shot of Laphroaig to make a little AS

    I know there's more expensive shaves out there but I just don't see how it could be better than this right here. I would like to try some of the newer high end razors but it's just not in the cards for me right now so I'll experiment with blades and soaps and such until the time comes. All I can say is they have their job cut out for them beating this shave. By the way, yes, I am bragging. :D

    Monday OCtober 21

    Going with some US made razors this week. First up is my 1934 Aristocrat. While this razor shaves well, it's not quite as good as my British Aristocrat #15.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - MWF (it's Monday)
    Brush - Rubberset 400-3
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (5)
    Razor - Gillette Aristocrat 1934 (US)
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Clubman Reserve Whiskey Woods

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    This Aristocrat is a mild razor and not very efficient. I received a good shave in 2 passes. I didn't shave over the weekend so I had 3 days beard growth. The first pass WTG was smooth with no blade feel, and not very efficient and it left me with some stragglers, <DFS. The second pass, XTG and again was a very smooth pass with absolutely no blade feel and and finished BBS. The MWF lather was very good on both passes. I got a 2 pass, nick and weeper free shave. The alum was silent, even on my neck area which is unusual. I finished off with the Clubman Whiskey Woods, a scent I really like.

    Overall, a really good shave. Going with some US made OC razors this week.

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.
