:w00t: Note to self, coffee first, always coffee first. I'm glad to hear you got the bleeding under control and were able to salvage the shave. :001_cool:

Great looking chopper by the way :thumbup1:
You are absolutely correct Mike, before shaving you MUST drink ALL of your coffee. Shaving with only 2 synapses firing is NOT a very good idea! LOL :lol: Note to self: Don't do that again! :001_rolle :laugh:

I'm still pretty new to this, so I've been shaving at night. My shave of the night:

Trumpers Sandalwood Skin Food as a preshave
C.O. Bigelow Cream
Vulfix 660 Super Badger
Merkur HD/Derby
Trumpers Sandalwood Skin Food as an aftershave

Now that I'm getting the hang of things, I can't wait to start experimenting with the other creams/soaps/aftershaves I've already acquired.

Thanks B and B for a great forum.

Enjoy the weekend, Gentlemen (I promise to take some more pics soon!)
A comment to my SOTD the other day had me thinking (no cheeky comments please :biggrin1:). I thought it would be fun to shave with the cheapest equipment in my collection and with the most expensive as well.

So today's shave is the cheapest possible, and it can't get less expensive because it is absolutely free :thumbup:
All hard- and software is either gifts, won in competition or pif'ed to me.

And I couldn't tell the price in the quality of the shave - it was really good.

Tomorrow I'll take the expensive route.
