    SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 30th - April 5th, 2020

    Well I have truly enjoyed the “realm of mild” lately with stellar shaves being put in by a Tech and a Black Tip SS so as promised this 1956 Blue Tip SS was slotted in for today. I own a 56 trio and each of them are great. Loaded up with a fresh Kai today. All the “Fall” scents have been...

    I went a little crazy

    If I am flying I am checking the bag, I have always found that this is the least stressful way to fly. My carry on is for all the tech stuff I have with me.

    Well I must ask is there anything quite as good as the simple Tech loaded with a Feather blade? Well of course there is which is why we all have umpteen number of razors in our collections! However, it is one mild yet efficient beauty with a Feather or Kai or whatever your poison may be. Soap...

    Is This Razor For Me???

    So @Bryan_D whats the deal? Not getting a close shave? Angle issue? Irritation/Razor Burn? What’s getting your goat? I have a bevy of razors but when I get new one in the only blade that goes in it is my “reference” blade. For me that is a Voskhod. I could strap one to a rock and get a reference...

    First Line Shave are a small artisan company and the two scents Blue and Red are not only fantastic but a portion of the sales go to assist our frontline law enforcement and firefighters, EMS etc. I have and love the Blue but today I reached for the Red. The blue is a dupe of Calvin Klein...

    Now back to CBL soaps shall we? I am a lover of “leather” scents don’t really know why but I love them. Cigar Shop Cowboy is a pretty fantastic leather forward scent! Magical really with some smoke and tobacco in there. Today’s implement of stubble destruction the Colonial General SS SE. It is...

    SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 23rd - March 29th, 2020

    Decided to take a break from the CBL soaps today and reached for a proverbial favourite in Proraso Red. I enjoy sandalwood scents and this one is just so good. Back to a SE in the Supply V2 just to flip things up. I like the heft and have the most aggressive plate on it all the time. Getting...

    Happy Monday and sincerely wherever you are I hope you and yours are safe. The Timeless Bronze OC.78 is a very pretty razor but it is a killer of stubble. Since I had a few days growth I grabbed it today. What a flamethrower of a razor. Loaded up with a Personna Lab Blue. Another shave and...

    Reached for the Merkur 37C today to get rid of the scruff. An efficient little beasty it is. Loaded up with a Kai SS. I believe I will be headed on a run of CBL soaps and carrying on from Black Rose Oud today’s choice Norse Spice. Light off the tub is the scent to me anyway but a typically...

    DE razor with Minimal or NO blade feel?

    Gillette Aristocrat or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the RAD

    A'crats whether Brit or US are fantastic razors and I own plenty of each. If its in good shape and cased, $50 is quite reasonable.

    Ah the Sunday shave, so much going on in the world, such stress...so yes, a small respite from all of it. Reached for the Karve CB with the A OC plate. Now, I haven’t been a fan of Feather Hi Stainless in the past but with a mild setup I favour super sharp blades. My go to blades are the Kai...

    Well a little late for the mid-week shave and a little early for the weekend shave...but I will take it anyway!
