Cold Water Rinse TSD Cool Lime Shave Stick B-400 Badger TNNSER by Tom GEM Stainless CWR Osage Rub
It is salute to Tom White Week. I'm using the B-400 and Original TNNSER.
The TSD Cool Lime Shave Stick face-lathered well with the B-400 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER by Tom with a GEM Stainless blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Razor - My new TNNSER 3d my nephew printed for me Blade - GEM PTFE Brush - Fine Stout Soap - GZD Berber
The blade seemed rougher than I remembered but then I also remember that during the final fitting of the razor last night... First I grabbed a used Gem blade, dulled it and did the basic filing/fitment adjustment. Then I though I had it and went to a real blade, that showed the need for more refinement. The one I dulled would ride easily over any minor clearance issues whereas the sharp one would not give at all. So I think I probably boogerd up the blade when it wouldn't go. Should have tossed it rather than even trying it. It was a very aggressive ride. I did pass 2 with a different razor on one side of my face, both sides look equal, so most of the damage was done on the first, wtg pass. So I added some balm post shave and feel better even though I have some redness like I haven't seen in a long time.
Back on the horse tomorrow or Wednesday with a new blade. My nephew says there is about 12.5 cents of material in this. I forget what type of plastic it is. Seems very similar to the black TNNSER I had/have (My BIL is trying that out). He has access to some printing material with plant fibers so though it would be kind of cool to make the handle on a future model wood grain.
I had a great shave with a Gem MMBT with guiding eye and a Ever-Ready 1914 today. Both shared a 5th use Meijer SS blade. I went with a horse hair brush and Tabac for lather and a witch hazel Splash with a little lotion to finish things off.

Monday, Feb 24 Kept it simple today -- GEM PB with a well used GEM SS PTFE blade, La Toja stick lathered with a Yaqi 26mm Rainbow "faux horse", and finished with Thayer's Rose Witch Hazel. Took 3-passes on some very light stubble -- I find the PB to be a REALLY mild performer for me -- but the end result was a VERY comfortable darn fine shave.

Today I used my prorasso professional boar brush, malt n Myrtle soap from gentleman's groom room, everready shovel head, Turkish shave bowl, new gem blue star blade, with hazel and obsession aftershave balm. My shovel head was feeling neglected. Bbs shave no irritation and very smooth shave.

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.
