Cold Water Rinse Palmolive Shave Cream Semogue Owners Club Schick L1 Schick Proline CWR PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm
The Palmolive Shave Cream face-lathered well with the Semogue Owners Club brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick L1 with a Schick Proline 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...
Pre: Sainsbury's Luxury Soap, Bergamot & Nectarine Brush: Vintage Butterscotch Culmak Plus 1950 Soap: Vintage GIBBS 1950's Razor: Kampfe Star #2 Blade: GEM PTFE (9) Post shave: Alum Block, cold water splash, Neroli and Orange infused Witch Hazel Balm: Bart's Balm Lavender Balm & Lotion Aftershave: Copycat Bleu
My first go at boxing a razor, The original box is past its best so i ordered a personalized box from Amazon, lined it with memory foam and felt, The box is a bit big so i may re-jig it to take a box of blades. I covered it in a couple of coats of wax and buffed it in. Still a way to go but nice to tinker about. I took the corners off the blade using some emery tape laid flat on the bench and completing a few strokes back and forth then made sure it was central in the cradle. The circa 1950's soap and brush performed very well and gave me a bowl of lovely slick, lightly scent loveliness, more than enough for the 2 passes and buffing pass required for a DFS+ result. The Barts Balm doing its thing finishing off with a splash of copycat Bleu. I really enjoyed that, a very involving shave leaving me feeling and smelling really good.
Enjoy your day All
Very cool box, love the style of the lettering. Is the top curved?
Today I used soap from a local artisan in Huntington WV. Brookstone soaps oatmeal honey, lady eversharp, chick blade 3rd use, crown king synthetic brush, lo haiku aftershave from paa. Good smooth shave. The lather was very dense and barbasol like. Bbs no irritation.

A nice shave with my #01 Kampfe Star "Lather Catcher" all the way from the USA, fitted with a Jayaruh handle and in a Jayaruh box. An absolute joy to use. Feeling and smelling good after today's shave. Enjoy your day all

The Clan of Catchers - The Jayaruh Brushes - Williams Mug Shave Soap Club Nil Desperandum Auspice Deo
Semogue 740 Badger - Pré de Provence No 63 Soap - ER 1912/GEM Blue Star - Gotas Frescas Agua de Colonia Hombre
A couple of firsts today. The PdP No 63 is a very nice soap with a lovely spicy scent and it performs exceptionally well. The 1912 was bought as part of a 'job lot' ....just to get a couple of other razors. On closer inspection it would appear to be a Peerless (hexagonal aluminium handle). If it is......I think I got the razors for a steal!
3 passes for a perfect finish.....and I washed my hands before I felt my face!
Cold Water Rinse Williams Mug Soap Semogue Owners Club Schick L1 Schick Proline CWR PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm
The Williams Mug Soap face-lathered well with the Semogue Owners Club brush. I used the no bowl/dish method today. I wet my face with my brush, rubbed a new puck of Williams on my face, and built the lather on my face. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick L1 with a Schick Proline 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.
