    And here it is. Sundays shave. Dovo shavette. Half of some DE blade. Marvy's soap and brush. Kramperts Finest Bayrum finished things off. The Marvy's pulled a hit and run on the second pass. Still a very nice shave.

    I actually like the Dovo. Very light but gives a nice shave.

    Awesome. If I didn't enjoy SE and Injectors so much I could be a nothing but open blade shaver.

    Had I started on SE at the beginning, I'd probably do them more. But, count me as a fan. Schick G normally in effect as primary safety option. I'm just hooked in the shavette experience right now!

    No name shavette ,wood handle.3 use good sense blades IIRC.
    Dove shave cream
    no-name boar brush hot soaked in a brass bowl
    2 passes w/a touch up
    cool water rinse
    Lustray Blue Spice a/s

    The Dove face+body cream does not seem to be a good match w/a shavette.Not enough glide.IMO
    The Lustray Blue Spice is an a/s that does not get much recognition.It starts out as a light spice like a half strength Lucky Tiger Aspen and morphs in a baby powder scent with a hint of spice.Inoffensive and rather good.

    I had a Marvy's brush once.It shed more than a yellow lab with the mange.After a while the entire center of the brush fell out ,about the diameter of a pencil.It got s-canned.The soap I recall was not very good.

    SOTD 3.1.2018
    Head & Face Shaves (5 days growth)
    Pre-shave: hot shower
    Brush: Barburys synthetic
    Cream: TOBS Sandalwood
    Razor (face only): CJB Pain Stick
    Blade: Feather Professional (1)
    Razor (head only): Schick G1
    Blade: Schick (2)
    Post-shave: Dickinson's Original WH, Nivea Men Sensitive PS Balm, Pinaud Clubman AS

    I'll spent the month of March working on taming the CJB razor. My first use today went well.... I nearly finished an extraordinary face shave without drawing any blood. But I ended with a nick on my neck which took a couple of applications of the styptic pencil before the bleeding stopped.
