    Didn't win my auction. I'll admit the intent was there, but I didn't actually buy anything. So... Still in.
     
  1. I got an Amazon gift card for my birthday...

    Great shave! 2 pass head and face. 5 days growth. WTG and ATG. Forgot how slick this soap is and the post shave is fantastic! This is why SV is in my top 3. GRUME for the rest of the year.

  3. I am not even visiting Amazon. No worries... Emails from shops i deleted them on sight without opening them.
     
  4. That's a solid strategy!

    Lots of yardwork this morning so didn't get the the shave until this afternoon. Didn't care about BBS for hours since I'll shave tomorrow morning with my straights. So I decided to make today a fun shave.

    3 (W/X/ATG) passes with the Rolls Viscount

    Who needs new stuff when you already have such great toys!

    (Now, if I can just get the Rolls blade as sharp as I would like it to be... I'd love to do a Rolls-only shave.)
     
  6. I had a fun shave today as well. Two days worth of growth, a new Nacet blade in the old Karve, and balm... smooth.

  7. Nancy Boy is top shelf stuff!

    I went with A&E summer fig today. Actually considering getting back into 3017 with it as it's one thing my third trimester wife can consistently stomach / enjoy the scent of!

  8. Man, I know how that goes... and hey, 3017ing A&E isn’t a hardship.

    Always a great shave with the 1924! Sorry, no picture today.
     
  10. I expanded the hairline crack in my Old Type Sunday. But one hit eBay Buy It Now with a crazy low price within minutes of finishing my shave. I don't think they knew what they had.

    I was tempted to stretch the "broken/replacement" caveat for GRUME, but then saw a NOS Rolls blade in a Bakelite case. Definitely not a replacement...

    I'm out.
     
  11. Well ... congrats? Lol
     
  12. Still going strong!

  17. Still in!
