SOTD "FREE WEEK" November 30th - December 6th, 2020

It's another "FREE WEEK" ladies and gentlemen.

It's time to be creative.

Please feel free to post any photo, with any gear and any style you chose, or contribute by telling us what you used in your shave, with comments on the shave, if you desire.

Color, B&W, sepia or a photograph with any type of artistic touch you wish is always desired.

Christmas Season, Day 4.

Marzipan Shave Soap with Menthol Monday!

Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
Soap: M. A. Space Soap Cow in Space
Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
Blade: Nacet (3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (3)
Brush: VdH Green Boar
ASB: Duke Cannon Ice Cold
EdC: Polo Supreme Leather

If you have never tried M. A. Space Soaps, I'd give it a whirl if you can get a hold of any. The owner, Mr. Robert Harding and his son make it in small batches in his house. His production has been down because he is working to help fight the CV-19 at his full time job. I think his company was one of the companies that helped make the current coming vaccines.

Anyway, his soaps are all great. Be warned, he likes menthol. He made one called Ice Planet that is great for the summer months.

Great lather from the soap. Creamy, slick and very nice scent.
1st use of razor with the blade was very good. Quite smooth and comfortable for 3+1passes and result in a mostly bbs feel. Saw some creepers. Excellent post & aftershaves.
Another wow GEM razor similar to the Junior. Easy to use and although can't do a direct wtg under the nose but xtg and atg on the upper lips area are breezy. Rating 9.7/10
