SOTD "FREE WEEK" June 15th - June 21st, 2020

DE-Vette (BIC)/Bevel thing (7 O'clock Green SS). I don't what else to call the AliExpress Bevel look alike, but it's quite aggressive so not a clone, a bit more aggressive I think than the Square Root Pascal. The rails on this one are definitely closer together and perhaps higher than the SRP. Whatever, a true BBS with lots of audible feedback.

Today being my birthday and Father’s Day I used a razor for the first time. It’s a Frankenstein and I posted the story Friday Morning so if you are interested you can read about my thread is called honour thy Father.
Used it with a new Treet blade, fendrihan bergamot shave soap and a pre shave I make myself. The razor is light but feels great in my hand and was giving lots of feedback, I could really hear it making short work of my 1 day growth.

Best shave ever? No, but very enjoyable and I’m still smiling.

SOTD FATHER’S DAY 6/21/2020

Great shave today! Did very careful WTG and ATG passes on my mug with no mishaps. The final result before I grabbed the VAS VC4 was a CCS with some stubble patches where I couldn’t figure how to hold the Dovo and allow for the proper angle.

Part of the issue may be arthritis, but I consider it a work in progress. The VC1 sheared any remaining stubble right down to the skin line. I then did the same for the noggin! Have to keep it short today. My 2 yr old youngest grandson is coming over for a swim today on Father’s Day. In a nutshell, I feel cool, clean and velveteen!

RAZOR: Dovo Special (Face), Valet Auto Strop VC1 (Head)
BLADE: Feather FHS-10
PREP: Cold water rinse and Chel Cooling Gel as Preshave
BRUSH: Alpha T-400 w/ 26mm Boar Ferrule
CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature w/ 6 drops of M-Bomb
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with Glyce Glycerin soap followed by Humphreys Lilac WH and Nancy Boy Signature ScentCooling Gel
