Wanted a mild shave so for the first time in 3 months I used something other than my rex ambassador on my head. I'll have to say, I needed all of setting 9 with just 4 days of growth where the rex ambassador would have been perfect at setting 2.5-3 being more efficient and comfortable. Used a 3rd use wizamet for a comfortable bbs shave but it did take more effort with this Super adjustable 84 vs my rex ambassador.

Have some great shaves! Stay and think safe in these times!



This morning I shaved with two awesome razors. The Dubl Duck 11/16 has always performed beautifully for me. As I mentioned yesterday it came from the estate of my childhood barber, Joe Roselli, through his grandson, Vince. I wonder sometimes whether Joe ever used it to shave my neck with it as a child. Like my C-Mon Special, it sings as it works! The results were a foregone conclusion. Three slow passes with the Traveling Wilburys “End of the Line” playing in the background put the baby to bed! My dome shave featured one of the jewels of my collection, the Eclipse Red Ring, fitted with a fresh Feather DE. This little razor is every bit as efficient as my Muhle 2011 R41 and required focus during the two pass ATG shave. The resulting Wilburys’ finish left me clean, refreshed and dolphin smooth.

RAZOR: Dubl Duck Goldedge 11/16 (Mug), Eclipse Red Ring (Dome)
BLADE: Feather DE
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: JT Sapele/Resin Handled Omega Pro48 Boar
