Torrey Tuesday

She’s got a truly screaming sharp JNAT edge on her now, which is definitely not the norm for me on something this hollow! I’m having a good time, but even taking my time I ended up with a tiny weeper tonight.

Why didn’t we go with Arktober this month? Is Arko just too drying for northern climates this time of year?
Jim I will let you into a secret as @Luecke2326 Matt has the same problem, he cannot work it out aswell and he calls it Voodooo. As I dont know what I'm doing to make it look like this.

As for the brush they are big at the base of the handle, and with me having big hands it fits like a glove your fingers rest on the ridge below the black. At the moment on Aliexpress they are very cheap for a 26mm 2 band badger, i love the brush I might buy a second one as a backup but then again as if i need another brush lol

Definitely some kind of voodoo..... ;-)

It’s Tuesday so I’m still in on a Torrey for Tuesday. I don’t know the model for this one so I just call it the spike tip Torrey and it always provides a delightful shave

Chan Eil Whiskers

Fumbling about.
Really loving that dragonsbeard huh? I’m watching for more GD...
I am. Looking forward to Frank's next soap(s), too. Don't know what they'll be called or much about them, but he is onto something good with this one so I'm encouraged. Yes, Dragonsbeard is an excellent soap. Very good for my skin (post-post shave).

Happy shaves,

It’s a rainy Tuesday here in the Upstate. The kind of morning the just makes me want to stay in bed and home from work but I can’t so I grabbed the Torrey had a CCS with my newest addition and off to work
