    Post Week of July 24 SOTD - Sunday

    Pre-Shave: Hot shower
    Brush: 26mm Simpson "Chubby 2", 2-band Super Badger
    Razor: 15/16" Filarmonica "Doble Temple" #14, Full Hollow Ground, Spike Point
    Strop: 40/70 (Neil Miller Linen / Ambrose Horse Hide Clásico leather)
    Überlather: La Toja "Mamantiales" Shave Soap
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel (Rose Petal, no alcohol)
    Moisturizer: Trumper's Fragrance-free Moisturizer
    After Shave Splash: La Toja "Mamantiales" AS
    Cologne: La Toja "Mamantiales" EdC
    Results: The shave with the Filarmonica was simply fantastic. Those of you that have one know what I am talking about and those of you that don;t...well, you need to get yourself one and you'll know too. Coupled with the La Toja, she delivered a first class, überluxurious experience . Thirty minutes of pure bliss. This is going to be a great Sunday. Wife and I are taking a break from family, gettogethers, nephews, nieces and going out on a date (maybe lunch and a movie? I am thinking "Cars 2" to catch up with the rest of the world. She is thinking foreign film like "Midnight in Paris". Choices, choices .





    Have a SPECTACULAR Sunday guys.

    Default Sunday Shave

    PREP: Hot shower with face scrub
    RAZOR: Wade and Butcher " For Barbers Use" Full Hollow , in Translucent horn with Black/Green G10 wedge
    BRUSH: Rudy Vey Chubby
    SOAP: Martin De Candre
    ASB: Skinfood Sandalwood
    EDT: NOIR
    RESULTS: 4 DAYS GROWTH GONE IN A FLASH!
    I worked on this blade and scales and finished it up on Thursday, and honed it up, and wanted to really have some whiskas for this shave. Well this razor is plain awesome. It cleaned my beard away with ridiculous ease coupled with the MDC soap it was a moisture full shave, and I have an extremely smooth BBS skin. What a great way to start off the day.
    AWESOME POSTS AND PHOTOS GUYS!!!

    Razor- John Cockhill
    Brush- Ever Ready
    Soap-GFT Lime & Kiss My Face Cool mint
    AS- Alum
    Skin food GFT Lime

    G'Day. Nothing beats a big fat wedge for a smooth shave and this one is no exception. After my ususal hot towel prep and lather and wrap. I dip the blade in Ice water during the shave. It's refreshing on hot days and reduces ATG irritation.

    Mark, that’s a beautiful razor. And for barber’s use only? Does the barber know that you are using his razor? LOL

    You said it. Wedges are great for shaving dense beards. Ice water as a cooling replenisher during a shave? Hmmm… I’ll have to try that.

    You deserve a rest on Sunday. If I could have slept in late today, I would have done so as well. BTW…How is the Manantiales De La Toja 1OldGI? Just wondering.

    Beautiful photo as always Teiste. It appears that you have quite collection of shaving brushes there.

    Thank you for the kind words. I love the beauty and heft of this brush. Makes for quick and easy lather building.
