    Another good result with the Super Professional and Feather SS. This might be the 4th or 5th shave with this blade.

    March 3 Madness

    I Imagine the young ball player who got the Louisville Slugger made from the discard of the Jayaruh 367 is always wishing to know what lucky wet shaver is out there whipping lather with the business end of his bat. I just love the simple beauty in striking color it displays.

    The brush and the GSB blade round up the indulgent portion of the shave today.

    Derby stick, sufficient lather. Smells like Ivory soap.

    The $14 shavette (Focus R21 Evolution) with the recessed blade and sissy corner guards is able to come in at minimal shsving angles, has a nice reach and balancd handling.

    Paying particular attention today, I noticed that the description of my shaving stroke is not totally accurate. I usually say that I start flat and slightly roll the blade in until I feel it. I actually am beginning the stroke at the same time. I only go in enough to get a cutting sensation which happens best in motion . Could be why I usually need 3-4 pass shaves over 1&2. A little like tightening bolts, where you learn to balance the amount of energy required to get-er-done enough to hold without rounding off or stripping the hardware.

    I came into edge forward shaving devices from straights, which many recommended. That does carry a steeper investment and makes this a great option for those who want to learn at a minimum cost. Having the covered corners is just a safety plus. I figure you can run out and buy that spike point razor later.

    Great shave.

    Won't get Black Cherry in Glacial again. A little too much like a cough drop. Lather = easy, awesome.

    The Stirling Tuxedo is my most used brush. Great value, easy care.

    Stirling Noir is a nice dupe to the Drakkar. I love Stirling AS splash ingredients, I consider them perfect. Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Aloe, Glycerin, Hydrovance.

    I love this shavette and this blade.

    I do like this razor. On my last shave with this blade from my sampler I though 3 would end it..... nah. Tryablade.com offers a wonderful service to those just wanting limited test items.

    From the Max Headroom List of Most Glorious Stanks comes the soon to be discontinued Tuscany. The scent profile says; "Start with Tuscan Cypress fragrance oil, add in some Bergamot and Violet, and sprinkle with an array of spices. A fantastic scent for both men and women." The Lovely Mrs Headroom commented "gee you smell good today". Get this one while you can. As long as you keep the Man Card punched up, the possibility that a woman might wear this won't bother you.
