    DFS again, 3 passes and no need for a d/e touch up. The Horsehair brush is just a phenomenal face latherer especially when using creams. Wow, what great pictures already this week.
    Have a Great day

    That's a beautiful Wacker.

    PS: how do you like that Cyril Salter Sandalwood? From what I have read, it is fantastic. I am about to order one (along with the Wild Rose and Sublime Citrus).

    Otto,
    That's a beautiful blade, but I must tell you that breakfast you just described sounds a lot better. What time should we come over, LOL?

    Nice shave with a nice blade. Am I safe to assume that you made that strop yourself?

    Thank you Robert! I like this cream, thicky and sticky (as in sticks good to the face) + I love the scent, itīs nothing for the subtle person though, but thatīs not me


    Eleblu: Thatīs a sweet setup, very schweet

    Sunday, February 20th

    Razor: D R Harris 3-piece Chatsworth
    Blade: Schick Plus Platinum
    Brush: Simfix Grosvenor
    Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Soap: I Coloniali Mango Oil Soap
    A/S: Mr. Taylor

    I decided to reach for the I Coloniali Mango Oil soap this morning and was rewarded with a very slick lather. I enjoyed an excellent shave from the D R Harris razor and NOS Schick blade. A splash of Mr. Taylor and I feel like a million bucks!

    Hot Shower
    Gem Micromatic Open Comb
    Omega Boar
    C.O. Bigelow SC
    Cold Water/Alum Block
    Crusellas Colonia 1800 Vetiver

    This razor is where it all started for me three years and change ago. Back then I wore a beard and had not shaved for a couple years. I saw the razor in an antique store and for the princely sum of $4 it was mine. Some months later, I decided to start shaving again and located some SE blades for the razor. The rest as they say is history.

    Today's shave was 3 passes to the dome and 3 to the face. The results were great. In fact, the more I use this alum block/cold water aftershave regimen, the more I like it.
    The older I get, the better I was
