    Thumbs up Sun July 10th - Sat July 17th

    .
    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Kamisori
    Brush: Simpson Chubby !!
    Soap: La Toja Manantiales
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Aqua Velva
    Summary: Don't ask me the name of the kamisori . It needed to be honed and it's not mine. I took the opportunity to take it for a full shave. The more I use the LTM soap the more I'm starting to love it. For me personally I rank MDC on bit higher scale but the LTM is very close. It's just different. I also love the fact I can nicely layer it on my face and it has a clean fresh scent. Either way I got a clean, extremely close shave. It put a big smile on my face. I couldn't shave with a kamisori each and every time but occasionally I really enjoy using one.
    Time's flying so gents keep it up! Great participation from everyone. Old and new.

    Great shave, the Raw Vanilla is starting to challenge my Bavx as my number one pick fragrance, two pass shave, minor touch up, the weather is a bit of a let down, still i'm off to the food festival being held down at the Cardiff bay and it's always nice to visit Cardiff such a nice city. I would love to move there, but house prices are at least 30 or 40% more expensive,

    Default NIGHT SHAVE

    PREP: Hot shower
    RAZOR: Sta Sharp
    BRUSH: Simpson PJ3
    CREAM: The Bomb in "VETIVER"
    SCUTTLE: Robert Becker
    ASB: Skinfood
    EDTforAM: Carlo Corinto Vetyver
    RESULTS: QUIET,RELAXED,SMOOTH SHAVE

    After a long Saturday of working, a late night shave was in Dire need. I have been face lathering the past few shaves and think Im really starting to like it, I might make it my main preference of lathering and the bomb in Vetiver lathers so great straight to the face. The StaSharp is a force to be reckoned with, as it took away my 2 days growth with such ease. A perfect night shave

    GUYS,THESE PHOTOS AND SHAVES ARE ALREADY EPIC, THIS IS GOING TO BE AN AMAZING WEEK !!!!

    Max, Thats sounds like an awesome shave and great pic as always, I should be getting my La Toja real soon, and from the sound of it it seems like it will be a great soap.

    Good morning Matt or evening, all depends which side of the Atlantic you live, regarding the Vulfix Persian Musk, I like it a lot, it's very rich and creamy, lathers up very easily, it's not overly scented, so you could run this with quite a few different scents, it certainly would not be the defining note in the shave. I would certainly give it my thumbs up.

    Default Sunday morning

    Pre-Shave: A relaxing shower.
    Brush: H.L. Thäter 25mm Silvertip
    Razor: J.A.Henkels Friodur, 8/8" Spanish point, scalloped back
    Strop: Straightrazordesigns PremiumIV, English Bridle, Long version
    Soap/Cream: The Gentlemen's quarter, Bay Rum with sweet Orange shaving cream
    Scuttle:Schwarzweisskeramik, Large White
    Astringent: Osma Alum
