Greetings,


Another superb indian made razor & blade duo, mowing through my stubble with effortless ease.

The la toja shave stick provided a wonderful slick protective lather in a short space of time,with the chinese horsehair brush,which i forgot to add to the photo,anyway i had enough lather for the full shave without re-applying the stick to my face, leaving a great post shave feel.

Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling devine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

My best friend kindergarten on recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. Although we remained close all of our lives shaving was never in our conversation until he became sick and I spent more time with him. Turns out he and I were both DE and SE shavers and he had posted tons of SOTD on another forum and was quite the photographer. In his honor I would like to share some of his SOTD posts here, Fair Winds Eric!
