    It's another "FREE WEEK" ladies and gentlemen.

    It's time to be creative.

    Please feel free to post any photo, with any gear and any style you chose, or contribute by telling us what you used in your shave, with comments on the shave, if you desire.

    Color, B&W, sepia or a photograph with any type of artistic touch you wish is always desired.

    Haha, purely by accident — and it wouldn’t balance if I moved the Tabac to any other spot.

    IMO, Tabac deserves its own Tuesday.

    And thanks, the brush is one of my favorites.

  18. RR Lupo /BIC. Swapped the stock handle for more weight and put a couple coats of wax on the head. Much more enjoyable shave vs stock. Solid 9.0 on the beard, not as efficient on my head where the Enders had more pick ups then expected.[​IMG]
