I had a great shave today with the TNNSER 3D using a 2nd use Meijer blade and an unmentionable. Most of the first pass went to the unmentionable. Then things were split pretty evenly between the two till I did the back of my neck wich was all TNNSER. Tabac Lathered very well on the SHD two band badger. So much so that I even took a picture. Witch hazel with a little lotion mixed in was used for the finishing touch. A great shave all around with two great razors.

12 Feb 2020 -- Not a great day in the shave cave, but it wasn't the fault of the Schick C1, the excellent JR boar brush or the Haslinger Honig soap....rather an unmentionable bit me and sort of put a cloud on the shave....serves me right, I know. Here's the stuff that made up for the "incident".
Pre: Sainsbury's Luxury Soap, Bergamot & Nectarine Brush: Vintage Vulfix service #3 1950's Soap: 1912 Scottish Heather Razor: Valet VC1 Silver Tone Blade: De-spined GEM PTFE (10) Post shave: Alum Block, cold water splash, Homemade Witch Hazel Balm: Bart's Balm Lavender Balm & Lotion Aftershave: Copycat Bleu
A very involving shave today with the Valet VC1, i find them quite mild shavers, although, i am a novice to these razors. A very acceptable finish from 3 passes, not BBS as i usually like but a very acceptable finish all the same, the blade probably has another shave in it. A very nice post shave routine leaving me feeling and smelling really good. Enjoy your day All.

Cold Water Rinse Vintage Life's Morning TOST Oscar11 synthetic Russian ShaDE Personna Half DE CWS PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm
The Vintage Life's Morning TOST Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Oscar11 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Russian ShaDE razor with a Personna Half DE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
