What's new

SE SOTD- What was your tool of choice today?


Monday DECember 2

First shave of the month. Not sure what my focus is yet but starting with a razor and brush that are new to me.

Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
Soap - MWF
Brush - 30DC
Blade - GEM SS SE (1)
Razor - TNNSER 3D Clear
Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, RR Barbershop Blue A/S

Shave rating 5 of 5

5 days since last shave and I wanted to give these 2 new tools a try. I've got TNNSER 3D's in 2 other colors so was pretty confident in the shave I would get. Wasn't sure about the brush. I really like the handle but this is my first synthetic and I've never lathered with a synthetic. Well, it lathered really well and applied the lather well too. Maybe I won't have to replace the knot. I did a 2 pass shave, WTG and XTG and both passes were excellent, finished BBS. The MWF lathered really well as usual. The alum was a little vocal in a couple spots. Finished up with the Barbershop Blue A/S - I like this scent, just wish it lasted a little longer.

Happy DECember and great shaves everyone.
OneBlade Hybrid / Modified GEM (3rd) - 4 Days Growth, no problem

TBS Maca Root & Aloe
Lathered with my 30mm Tuxedo
Mentholated Witch Hazel
Old Spice Type AS Splash
Soap Commander Classic Spice (Endurance) Balm

Pleasantly surprised by just how clean the first pass was, as the OneBlade Hybrid removed as much as any other razor would have. (I have pretty quick growing mostly gray scruff, so there was quite a bit there). Did a full three passes, just to make sure I was back to glass smooth. Tempted to buy a Genesis while they're still 50% off for Cyber Monday.
