You are too creative. Love the Sherlock Holmes, one of my favorite reads.
Already got a new bottle waiting, that is one AS I don't want to run out of stockNice shave! Oh...and looks like you need some more Proraso!
Yes, me too - and I was really happy to find this reproduction at sale in a bookshop a couple of years ago. There is nothing wrong with the translations I've read, but I just love the original language of these.You are too creative. Love the Sherlock Holmes, one of my favorite reads.
I didn't either until recently, but I just thought that would be too harsh/rough on the skin, but as mentioned curiosity got the best of meNice work! I didn't know for the 4th pass ATG.
That makes sense, I always find it takes quite some water to wash off all the soap after a shave. It was definitely better than expected.That final pass ATG can be done - provided your beard had been well prepped in the first place. Supposedly, you still have some soap left on your skin, so when you wet your face for that final pass, the water should still be fairly lubricating. Using oil only for your final pass is a similar concept.
Thank you.Damn nice pictures Soren. And that certainly looks like one well used Semogue.
I read Luc's and Klarion's journals and it is helpful and encouraging to see the development from shave to shave.Soren - I would also like to thank you. Perusing your thread has been a daily pleasure for me. You and I started at about the same time and I have enjoyed keeping up with your progress as it sounds very similar to mine. Well done!! What's next? Soren's honing of the day?
First; I've got a linen/leather strop and the amount of strokes depend on the razor - I've found that they don't "edge up" (don't know a better word for it) in a similar way.
