Monday Evening:

Razor: HD
Blade: Derby Extra (2)
Soap: QED Fresh Limes
Brush: Vulfix 1000a
A/S: Blue Stratos
ASB: Gaia Organic
Pre-Shave: Hot shower + Stephan's Conditioning Smooth Shave Creme
Razors: 6/8" C'Mon HF, Hollow, Spike point
Brush: 23mm Shavemac Silvertip Badger
Überlather: Al Raz' custom "Da Bomb" (Scent: Cloves/Orange/Cinnamon)
Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel (Lavender, no alcohol)
Post-shave: Trumper's Limes Skin Food
Facial Moisturizer: Trumper's Facial Moisturizer
Cologne: Penhaligon Love Potion #9
Result: This is the first appearance of this C'Mon, which was also my first eBay purchase ($46). I was pleasantly surprised by my purchase :001_smile - it is only missing the "C'Mon lettering/inlay on the blade, but "thewatermark" has kindly offered to give his extra scale that has this so I can send to Max for transfer, provided I give him the "end" inlays. Thanks Matt :wink2:). The razor was in dirty (grime, grease, etc...) condition with a little bit of light rust/pitting on the blade. MAAS to the rescue. A few laps on the stones (Naniwa 1k, Coticule and Escher) brought out a wickedly sharp and smooth edge and made it look like what you see in the picture. Al's dense formulation of the custom Bomb was fabulous and the scent out of this world. This was a great start to a brand new SOTD week. The C'Mon delivered a very satisfyingly first class shave :thumbup:.

Okay, this was my first straight shave ever, it took me forever. I need to work on blade angle and I assume eventually I will get faster. On the plus side, no cuts and the right side of my face is BBS (I'm right-handed), left is DFS.
