What's new

Arko August 2019

Moving @ksblazer on the list, with the hope that he achieves the goal. :)
I'm pretty sure I will. This is the first time for me doing this many consecutive shaves with any soap\cream. In a way I kind of like knowing what soap I'll be using for my next shave, instead of looking at all of my soaps\cream and wonder what I'm in the mood for.

Really enjoying all of my Arko shaves so far. Getting a better post shave feel than I remember getting in the past. I think this is due to all the tips I've gotten on how to properly lather and a good face rinse between passes.

With that said I just got some Derby sticks in today. I'm kind of anxious to compare it to my Arko sticks. Probably a bad time for me to place an order. Since I'm committing to Arko for the entire month.

Must resist the temptation though and push on through with Arko.

Wilkinson Sword blade X7 for this A.M.'s shave. Whipped up the Arko & attacked my stubble with the Sloc open come. Stubble gone with no nicks or irritation.

Arne, that a gorgeous razor, brush and mug but the ugly duckling is the Arko lol. No wonder it's 1/2 way hidded rofl.
Thanks! Agreed that Arko is the ugly duckling, but it's still a great performer.

(And I'm actually the other Polar Bear, Alan, not Arne. :blink:)
 
Another great Arko shave. I think I'll take this with me when I go on vacation in a couple of months. There will obviously be plenty left!

Another great shave with Arko and the little sister of yesterday's razor. Since I had shaved yesterday afternoon I made the lather super runny (actually dripping off the razor). Still had great glide and residual slickness.
 
So far I have used all of my brushes with Arko. The best lathering one is also the one that uses the least product, my WCS 24mm synth. If I continue using it with Arko’s regenerative characteristics, this one stick will last me the rest of my life.

Arko all along summer for me.
I use this stick all the time while the weather is warm, that was here since middle of May.

Great shave today. (Shavettes are just plain fun.) And Arko provided all the protection I could ever want. No signs of drying skin so far (but I'm a firm believer in post-shave oil and balm/lotion).
