    Yes indeed. Great fun! :eatdrink047:

    We just get confused between “handles” and “scales.” :)
    Good to see you wandering over here Fuzzy.

    C.V.H. M.K. 133, soap and balm were Pre de Provence lathered with a 2-band Duke 3 copy. A super slick soap and solid balm, the bergamot and thyme scent is mild, and somewhat reminiscent of Haslinger marigold but not the same.

    Caught a BIG pike this morning and got around to shaving right before lunch (breakfast). Lawn mowed and fresh out of the shower, great shave.

    Filarmonica 14 Gen 1 Rejoneo, soap was the new Czech and Speake 88 lathered with a Thäter boar - for about a minute and a half, 125 swirls. After shave was ABC red sandalwood.

    This is not a good performing soap, more like the classic English hard soaps that don’t lather. I’d avoid the new version.

    King Pelican 14, new C&S soap was used for the last trial, brush was a Persian Jar 3 and C&S 88 AS finished up. I used the puck as a stick then lathered with the brush, and for the second pass I just lathered the soap in my hands.
