Still in! Vector with Schick Pro-line blade and WSP Fresh Vetiver all this week and probably next as well.
If anything, this QUADSAB is making me rethink my approaches to soap/aftershave splashes. I'm starting to see a path wherein I focus on the AS scents and just use a light scented soap like Mitchell's Wool Fat or something - no more "matching pairs." I say that because while nice soap scents are welcome, they don't last so kinda what's the point? The splash may last longer and, in many cases, actually smell a little better than the soap itself.
Still in and last day to go! I think this has really helped me keep the RAD at bay - no soaps, no blades, no nothing. And I'm actually not considering making a big purchase - or much of any purchase to be honest - once this wraps up tomorrow. Mission accomplished, I guess. I finished one soap earlier and am about a week or two out from finishing a second. I've actually been quite content with just using my Blacklands Vector most of the time. I was thinking of selling off a DE Razor just given that I've become more of a SE man. But now that my acquisition disorder is in check, I'm feeling much calmer about this hobby than I had been previously. Hope everyone else feels the same.
Only a few hours to go for my local time. Still in and no chance to fail left. Besides, tomorrow i will be travelling back to home. So, for me, mission accomplished. To be honest, between the Quadsab and the reduced presence in the forum, right now i have no urge to buy anything, pretty much like @Bjlefebvre said.
Oasis ahead, gentlemen!
For ease of use, i leave here the link of the updated rules, so that anyone who will want to repeat the journey, may find ready to use rules (or that can modify them to his taste). Who knows, maybe someone else, will one day revive the Quadsab.
Good looking cup of coffee! Well, i certainly can't take credit for the coffee! The only credit i can take is for choosing this background for the specific photo. :laugh: Today's shave, featuring once more, my worst badger. Once more, i had to comb it just like horses at the end of the shave...
I thank each and every one of the gentlemen that joined this first Quadsab. It was a pleasure and an honor.
To you, i leave the task of ending officially the sabbatical, according to your local time zones.
Only kidding! No expenditures, other than my exception, in 4 months. I must say that's worth celebrating. And it's created a sense of "Enough is enough. And I have enough." No urge to spend which is a big change for me.
Thanks @Burundian Hawk for offering up this opportunity. And thanks to all those that participated.
Last day!! Still in!
Razor: Gillette Mach3 Turbo vs RR GC.68-P
Blade: Gillette Mach3 Turbo vs Wizamet
Brush: Sagrada Familia
Two pass shave left me clean and ready for the workday. Shave was nearly identical on both sides as far as closeness goes. The GC/Wiz combo was vastly smoother though, with no post shave irritation, the same cannot be said for the Mach3.
Gents, it has been a pleasure going along this journey with you! Best of luck moving forward in however you choose to proceed! Take care y’all!
