    My first SOTD.

    After shaving with this razor for several years -- and in a rare moment of wisdom -- I decided to send it off to the Idaho panhandle for a vacay, complete with spa treatment package and full-body makeover. Thank you, Glen for the magnificent result. Shaves like a dream. (My poor photography surely does an injustice to Glen's work.)

    Prep: hot shower
    Soap: Williams puck
    Brush: Omega Pro boar
    BUS (Butt-ugly strop, my own creation, 3" bridle leather)
    Razor: Gottlieb & Hammesfahr Pyramide
    AV Ice Blue
    Olay SPF 15 (pale Irish skin and the S. Florida sun don't play well together)

    I have gotten away from posting much but do read posts everyday and itís been awhile since posting my SOTD so it was Irisch Moos with a Fili Especial.

    Been playing around with some .5 CrOx as well, after every shave I give the razor about 8-10 light strokes on a treated strop then about 25 on clean leather using a double sided paddle and so far itís been working very well.

    Gillette 1969 Super 109 on setting number 9. Number 9
    Wizamet Super Iridium (4)
    Razorock BC
    Geoffrey Beane - Grey Flannel aftershave and colonge
    A&E SkinFood.

    This classic aftershave scent of Grey Flannel invoked some Ďyou smell NICEí comments. Which I suppose is better than the Ďwhatís that smellí comments I get from time to time. lol
    The after shave, when combined with the skin food, brought up the level of post shave, to make it competitive with more modern splashes.
    The number 9 setting on this razor is super efficient while remaining a very smooth shave. I did make the mistake of stopping mid pass at one point which caused a weeper but it was easily dealt with by using a bit of alum.
    Over all just a terrific shave here.
