    Default Shave a trois'

    I wont' be updating any more, as basically, I think I got the main kinks worked out, I just need more practice.

    I stropped again 30 strokes linen 30 leather, and it was even smoother. I suspect I really schmucked up the edge the first time. Now when I run my thumbpad across the blade, it's making me nervous...

    Got a great lather today, wished I could've bottled it up and kept it for later. Stuff went on like latex paint, and nice and slick. Less water, more whipping. Didn't realize I needed to bulk-up my wrist and forearm muscles to shave.

    Nicest thing is no razor burn, no little rash everywhere, *This* will keep me shaving, rather than putting it off until the missus won't smooch me anymore...

    Much thanks for all the good advice, and for this forum.

    Glad to hear things are working out, mrcpu. Yeah, the lathering up can cause some serious muscle fatigue - I've been half-seriously considering mocking up an attachment on my power drill for my brush (wife won't let me use the mix-master... ).

    I used to whip the lather like you guys do, and then I tried lathering on my face. It cut the shave time down, since I was combining lathering and prep. And the lather has been great, since I find that the circular motion on my face builds it better than the whipping motion in the mug.

    If you're interested in trying it out, do a search on face lathering. There was a thread a few weeks back that was pretty good.

    Just a thought,
