    Default Luxury Shave

    So as I have been equipping my den for each shave so that I don't have to stand in front of a sink. This is mainly so that later on when I have to get ready at the same time as others I can be completely out of the way. I have been looking forward to trying out my basin and pitcher to see how comparable to the tap water I can get. Basically I am planning to try warming some water in a tea kettle and hot steaming a towel in the basin during my next weekend shave. Does anyone have suggestions before I try it out? I plan on following this up with my experience when it happens.

    Nice one, beats getting bumped whilst shaving in a busy bathroom. Perhaps throw a towel or old blanket on the floor first to avoid mess and get the hooka going at the same time for the ultimate shave in style!

    I never shaved while loaded. I think I would be very afraid. That is a good looking setup. Congrats.

    It's a nice setup. looks really good but I need way more room for shaving and by me the dog would have the razor.

    This is a very cool, retro set-up. I too would concur that imbibing and SR shaving are injurious bed fellows. Alert and sober is the best rule for SR shaving.

    It's just where I keep my Hookah. Lease does not allow smoking in the apartment. When I get a pipe stand I will be using it both for my pipe and razors.

    Here is the pipe stand. Now to ponder should I use the glass humidor for soap or tobacco?

    Good question. I'd love more soaps that smell of various pipe tobaccos, perhaps bung them in together for the best of both worlds. Clan tobacco is certainly soapy!

    Well I did do the shave and it came out functional. I just need to tweak some things like how long to heat water and such but it seems like it will work where I won't need a sink near me.

    Also I got a little wall art I need to frame. It's a little clue to what my new mystery razor is.
