    During this themed week we would like to see, in your always stunning shots, all the wet shaving novelties you own and enjoy using. With novelties we intend brand new items (brushes, razors, soaps/creams, aftershaves, colognes, etc.) that have been recently introduced on the market and, also, traditional stuff that has been lately reformulated. Please proceed! :wink2:

    I honed this up for a newbie who was having some problems. Today was my test shave. The edge came out very nice and smooth! This was also a test for me of the QCS Vetiver. The scent on this reminds me very much of the Salter Vetiver SC. Sadly, despite all the praise I read about the QCS products, my lather was a bit lacking. I guess it really is true that YMMV. Despite the thin lather, I managed to get a BBS shave in two passes with touch ups. Afterwards, my face felt a bit dry, but the Sabon added plenty of moisture. And the Leather Oud is an intoxicating scent! Overall, I'm ready to tackle a new work week.

    I got the Clements back today from a knife sharpener who is looking to get into straight razors and honing them. He did a pretty good job too, at what I think is only his second razor.
