Results: Relaxing New Year's Eve shave. Debut Frank Shaving G4 Synthetic 26mm Brush 👍 Solid comfortable handle, good dense high backbone, soft tips, good flow through, very good lather generator and lather painter. I have 4 Frank Shaving Brushes among my small collection of 10 Shaving Brushes. Whipped up lather in simple ceramic bowl. Always use cold water to ensure close shave and minimize nicks, cuts and irritation. Three years ago I could not get good reliable lathers. Wet Shaving experts DEVO advised me when a problem comes along you must whip it. To whip it. Whip it good. So I took their advice to heart and always take my time to whip up quality lather. I whip it good. I shave every 2-3 days, so when Fatip Friday rolls around, the mighty Piccolo and the great Grande, excel. Fatip are reliable razors that always give me a close and comfortable shave. No cuts, no nicks and no irritation. BBS result. Great Shave!

Happy New Year!

Third shave with the Wolfman – Wizamet combo. I corked the blade, and this seems to have smoothed it out some. A nice, rich lather today. A smooth shave on a cooler Arizona morning. Have a good day, folks.
