    Le Grelot 14 round nose, soap was MdC fougere lathered with a Rooney 1/3 Silvertip. Floris 89 AS splash compliments the MdC fougere very well.

    10/8 Max Sprecher
    Catie’s Bubbles Tuxedo Brush
    Angora Soaps Midnight Lavender SS and AS


    I refreshed my Sprecher on my pasted strop (Crox) after yesterday's shave with it. Of course, I used a different soap and aftershave. I decided to test the edge and man oh man, what a difference! The result was a 2 passer without errors for a BBS result!

    6/8 Heljestrand No 130, soap and AS were Floris Elite, and a M&F Blonde Badger did the lathering. The latest Floris soaps are excellent!

    This razor is super sharp! Lol! I am trying to deep-six this soap because I really don't care for the scent. I have had it for just over three years and I made a serious donut hole so it is definitely on it's way out. Had an excellent shave this afternoon.

    Shell 92 Silver Steel by Perfectworks, soap was La Toja lathered with a Keyhole copy by @life2short1971 - Myrsol Limon topped things off. Simple and great.

    French Delafoulhouze Le Royal Tranchant with bad scales. But hey, you have to hone and use the blade to see if it’s worth investing in new scales - and this one is. Especially since I only paid $15 for it and it’s a fine piece of steel. Soap was MdC original lathered with a lime Paladin Chief, and MdC agua Balsamica finished up a great shave.

    6/8 Ralf Aust
    Hembree/Maggard Timberwolf Brush
    Stirling Frankincense and Myrrh SS and AS


    I bought this razor brand new from Maggard's a few years ago and they honed it for free. It's still sharp so that tonight's shave was smooth and comfortable.
    The brush handle was made by Danny Hembree @Hembree out of Delrin and I purchased the Timberwolf knot from Maggard's on a separate order.
    It was my very first time that I set a knot. I used a silicone adhesive. It's been over a year and it's held up well.

    Years ago, there was a big push by those who adore The Veg. I bought some, and tried it. I disliked the smell, and when the.wife.and daughter caught a whiff of it, they thought it had a urine scent. I tried it for a week, even letting it air out. When my wife came home, she basically said the experiment was over, and to go wash it off. I tried, I hated, I PIF'ed the bottle to one of "The Chosen", on this site.

    I didn’t get urine from it but many folks mention that. It just smells cheap to me.

    The nice old Crookes rattler was up today, along with Durance Le Homme soap, which about 10 years ago was panned far and wide as the worst shaving soap ever made. Well, Maggards turned up with some refils a few years ago and I just had to find out for myself. It’s excellent! The only thing that I can think of is that they made a bad batch or they reformulated it later on. The brush was a Simpsons 58 Manchurian and the AS was Harris Arlington.

    Refreshed the edge on this bad boy and took it for a spin.
    Have a good two pass on the mug. It still amazing how my Swedish straight is practically silent and this one just goes about telling you how it’s day went. No complaints here.
    Happy shaving!
