SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 29th - April 4th, 2021

Went out to astoria for birthday celebrations, boo surprised me with some new kit
Razor: 1966 slim L 3
Blade: 7'clock green stropped on a edge-bak stropper found it the day before and it's action, the way it rubs the blade made me giggle and for ten bucks I figured what the hell
Brush: brand new birthday gift 20mm slivertip with a fun an funky pink laminated wood handle
Lather: birthday sample SW southern witchcrafts lycanthropy
Aftershave:birthday surprise southern witchcrafts Tres Matres
new brush was delightful as were the southern witchcrafts items
it had been a while since I had used the slim and armed with the new knowledge that the higher numbers are more aggressive and the combo of new soap made for a great shave. View attachment 1245516
Happy birthday

Since I never had a real good shave with the Lupo, I thought, why not throw everything at it, in a last attempt for it's redemption.

Pre: PAA Cube
Soap: GD Mandarin Bay
Scuttle: PAA
Blade: KAI
Brush: Shavemac 24 2 Band
Razor: IB Lupo SS .95 SB Rubber ring adj.
AS: Williams AV

So the solution for my razor problem was a small M5 rubber sealing ring.
WTG tight, XTG 1/8 turn open, ATG another 1/8 turn = BBS.
