April 2021 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)

Still in.
Razor: Karve SS CB SB-B
Blade: PIR (4)
Brush: Semogue 830
Bowl: Timeless
Soap: Haslinger Aloe Vera
A/S: Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue
It appears to be that the 830 is finally getting fully broken in. I have had struggles with this brush ‘eating’ lather and not having enough for three passes. Today was great however! Plenty of lather for 3 passes plus leftovers! Thoroughly enjoyed this shave today! Have a great day y’all! 561AE3B1-DD50-42C3-90B7-D1717730D67C.jpeg
 
Alright, i may be late to the April's beginning, but i will compensate in the next months. I did my last purchases and i am now in!

35th place. I like it!
 
Silly question, but what does "GRUYERE" mean??? I am sure it is not the cheese...
Hi there, welcome to the forum! GRUYERE stands for Gentlemanly Restraint Until Year End RElief. It’s the year long sabbatical from shaving related purchases. No such thing as silly questions here. From my experience everyone has been very willing to help answer any questions I’ve had. And there is a wealth of knowledge that people are very generous to share! Again, welcome to B&B!

Thank you for the welcoming and the kind reply. So it is like a restraint that will continue all year long! Then i must edit my post and become GRUYERE too! I should do several yearly sabbaticals, but 1 year at a time seems more realistic.

Ok, i can't edit my previous post, so i make here the correction:
