    What a superb relaxing shave. I'm just a sucker for GFT and J.A. Henckels. I've been using their shaving goodies for a very long time and I've never been disappointed. Stellar stuff, at least for me. I always get compliments from the ladies when I use Herrera for men. Life is good.

    Gents, enjoy the month of November. Thanks for all your excellent shaves.

    I cant explain just how good it felt when I took the razor down my cheek, and it shaved like an actual razor.
    A pretty good one too.
    Its sharp, it's smooth, its a pretty bloody good shaver.
    Result: As good as I'd hoped, better than I'd expected. 3 pass BBS
    I am one proud father tonight.

    Have a great week gentlemen, and thanks for the posts and pics

    Sunday

    Up early today for my weekly Sunday morning walk to the top of Mount Torrens. The picture below of the track doesn’t do it justice; it’s steeper than it looks, so much so that you need to use your hands at times.

    After that it was time for my weekly clean up of my bedroom and a shave at my ‘shaving stand’. As I shaved I listed to an audio book of ‘Leaved of Grass’ by Walt Whitman. I believe it has been said of Walt that all he did is write ‘lists’, and I can understand that comment, but what lists they are!

    The shave was middling only, the soap was ‘gluggy’ I’m unsure why. It could be that I need to be draining the soap dish better; or it could indeed be the heat in the bedroom, it’s getting a bit warmish here lately. The moustache and beard etc is coming back OK after I shaved it all off for Movember now on the fourth day it looks like a growth that most men would have after the first day…

    The day was spent with my extended family for my father’s 85th birthday. My father entertained us all by speaking German, Hungarian and Yugoslav all afternoon…

    Have a great week, everyone, mine has started on a good note; I hope yours has too..

    I remember seeing your thread on that a while ago. It's amazing to me that you can make something that beautiful out of an old file. I love the heel on it too, that's be great for cutting in...Well done! (cool photo too)...
