Daughter says I smell like a barber shop and cleaner- wife says I smell like baby powder and old lady, but says if I like it, more power to me- which MEANS it isn’t verboten- she says that about tabac. She says I smell like a 90 year old woman. I’m gonna go ahead and disagree. She says your sister would say you smell like a grandma. So. Yeah. “You smell like my grandma.” Whatever, Lol, grandma smelled like the Hungarian cavalry 😂🤣😂 so there’s that. Anyway, I like it, I like the way it feels, the smell is okay in my book and I intend to use this throughout the spring and summer months. Been chosen! It’s more than a scent- it’s a feeling.

A satisfying shave with the razor after stropping on pasted balsa and buffalo leather. 3 smooth comfortable passes for a dfs finish. The matching aftershave was chillingly cold...perfect for today's hot & humid weather!

Nothing like a green themed shave to start the morning off. The Filarmonica 13P Novodur performed as expected. I really enjoyed the Naniwa 12k/Suehiro 20k edge on this razor. I’m still not quite 100%, so my grandson, Kevin, built the edge for me under his father, Ben’s and my watchful eye last night before my bridge game with SWMBO and her brother and sister-in-law in Las Vegas night thanks to the wonders of modern online bridge software. Sorry to wander, but the Filly delivered a first class very smooth mug shave result.

The dome shave was just splendid. I’ve been shaving with these Schick B-20 injector blade equipped Durham Enders razors for the last two months prior to returning to my straight shaves yesterday morning at home. Hospitals do not allow Parkinson’s patients to shave with straight razors! Go figure! ;<) I had my PT try an injector shave with a gifted G Type I provided to him. He really liked the shave, and has since ordered a Supply razor. No more carts for that young man! Two ATG dome passes left your happy narrator velveteen smooth from neck to noggin. I’m looking forward to this beautiful, sunny day here in the Philly burbs!

RAZOR: Filarmonica 13P Novodur 11/16 (Mug), Durham Enders Green Handled Speed Shaver (Dome)
BLADE: Schick B-20 Injector (Dome)
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a heavy scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: RazoRock Rubberset Black Synth Replica
CREAM: Castle Forbes Lime
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a splash of Royall Lyme AS/Cologne.

68th shave with the Ethos Lavender. The brush today is my SOC Boar. Unlike my other boar brushes, this one is very soft. I again had to scoop some of the soap out since the hole in the soap puck is so large. Nevertheless, the lather was nice and rich. A Different razor today: a Feather AS-D2 loaded with a fresh Feather blade. My usual four-pass shave resulted in a BBS shave with little effort. Have a great day, folks.
