    Other than getting bit on the chin on the first pass and the ready bleeding that followed throughout the remaining passes, it was a wonderful shave :happy097:

    Here’s something that you don’t see too often. No, not the nice old W&B, a new pristine tub of AdP Colonia. The old one is done. Brush was a M&F Blonde Badger and a little AdP Colonia Intensa finished up a great shave.

    …and just in time to provide a little shaving synchronicity my new jar of Baume.be arrived today just before my shave. Thanks @b1hart - it’s everything you said it would be - and maybe more. I’d like it even better if they offered a lavender scent and made the tub just a bit wider but the shave it enabled was nothing short of superb. This razor has given me more shaves than any in my collection (I learned on it) and today was undoubtedly the best ever. Was it the shaving cream? I don’t know but it sure felt great. :happy036:

    Better than good! It really was a stand-out, exceptional shave. I was able to shave over the small divot from the last shave without opening it up. I don’t think I could have ended up with a smoother shave :happy093:

    Thanks, Tom! I got it from my son. It was a display queen in his huge Japanese razor collection. Since it was one of two, I was able to get him to part with it! Love the way it shaves!

    Filarmonica 14 user (and a favorite shaver), Cream and balm were I Coloniali Rhubarb and an Omega 49 did the lathering. Since New Years, I’ve polished off the last of a tub of AdP and this cream has about 1 shave left in it, maybe 2 if I work at it. Not too bad for January 9th.

    MWF?? I like Baume, but the Fat is it for me! Which is why this is such a great hobby!

    Steve, do you have many razors that are just for display? My son, Ben has a dedicated room for his.

    Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements - Shave Soap and Star Jelly - Future Fiction
    Zenith synthetic
    Feather AC DX (kamisori style)
    Schick Proline
    Perfumer's Choice #9 - Mojo (homage to Tom Ford - Oud Wood)

    A favorite razor shaped object.....always fun to use, great shaves, dolphin smooth nearly every time.

    First 2022 acquisition, enabled by @Primotenore. Perfumer's Choice (Milton Lloyd) is a 'copy cat' perfumer based in the UK. The #10 'Mojo' fragrance....just incredible. Some of the fragrantica.com reviews say it's an equal, if not better than the original it copies. Their description much better than anything I can put together: No 10 by Mojo by Milton Lloyd is a Woody Aromatic fragrance for men. Number 10 'Mojo' was launched in 2021. Top notes are Aromatic Spices and Brazilian Rosewood; middle notes are Cardamom and Agarwood (Oud); base notes are Sandalwood, Vetiver, Amber and Tonka Bean.

    Wifey Super approved. :sexe:
