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.





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
