    Post Week of July 31 SOTD - Sunday

    Of razors/rocks/strops and Men

    Pre-Shave: Hot shower
    Brush: 26mm Simpson "Chubby 2", 2-band Super Badger
    Razor: 13/16" DOVO #300 "Waffen Schmied", Full Hollow Ground, Round Point
    Honing Regimen: Naniwa 1k, Chosera 2k/5k/10k, Nakayama Kiita/Asagi hybrid w/ Tomonagura progression.
    Strop: 30/65 (HandAmerican "Old Dog" Rough leather / HandAmerican "Old Dog" Cordovan leather)
    Überlather: Cyril Salter "Wild Rose" Shave Creme + Trumper's "Rose" Shave Soap + Glycerin
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel (Rose Petal, no alcohol)
    Moisturizer: Trumper's Fragrance-free Moisturizer
    After Shave Splash: Floïd Italian Blue AS
    After Shave Creme: Sabon ASB
    Cologne: Penhaligon "Opus 1870" EdT
    Results: An early shave this Sunday AM. Today, I decided to debut three new things; (1) my new DOVO "Waffen Schmied", (2) My other HandAmerican strop, which I had bought some 14 months ago but used only once, and (3) the Chosera 2k/5k/10k stones (the 1k was back ordered and should receive it sometime end of August). The strop has two leather sides, one "rough", which I believe acts as the equivalent of the standard linen side (but much better and a very nice draw) and a soft cordovan horsehide shell. Like its cousin, the Pegasus III (featured yesterday), this "Old Dog" is amazing (I think I have a new favorite strop ). The DOVO was NOS and was purchased as a "side kick" to an extra hollow W&B which I scored (on its way to Max for his magic). I set the bevel on this beauty with the Naniwa 1k (since the Chosera 1k is back ordered), followed by the Chosera 2k, 5k, and 10k, finally finishing it on the Kiita/Asagi hybrid with slurry. The edge she took was absolutely fantastic, popping hairs (literally) mid air . The Trumper/Cyril Salter combination had a heavenly Rose scent and produced some of the best, slickest and wholesomest lathers I have come to love . The prep made the DOVO's job look effortless, but this razor showed no mercy and wiped the whiskers clean off my face. BBS and zero irritation .




    Have a SPECTACULAR Sunday gentlemen.

    LOOOOOOOL Birnando,
    Glad you like the Floris buddy. The "Elite" is one I haven't tried though. That's one beautiful Monster Livi

    PS: How was the Oslo meetup?

    Razor: Wade & Butcher "For Barber's Only"
    This was a fantastic combination for cleaning away 4 days of growth.


    That's what a brotherhood is all about Grant. In a way Jacky boy is our adopted nephew. We all have a vested interest in his health (and pray for it every day). Glad you had a great time with him brother.

    PS; Congrats on a great shave with a great razor

    Sten,
    And how was that meeting. Great choice of razor for today's shave. It seems like regardless of size, they get the job done.

    What a beautiful blade brother...Did you hone her up yourself?

    +1 brotha...BIG +1. Great looking Genco you got there too Jack. They are amongst the great shavers for sure.

    I received this veggie soap few days back, in a nice 1 kg brick. This is a soft soap. Chinese name but Italian made, reportedly with properties and/or performance similar to those of Cella. The soap itself is coconut scented, today during this first shave it offered me excellent glide and also felt pretty slick.
    Konstantinos,
    Congrats on the soap. Sounds wonderful and looking forward to your thoughts on it after a few test runs.

    BTW: Beautiful REX too

    Very satisfiying shave the Gillette super thin blade is up there with the feather blade, two pass shave minor clean up feeling great, spent a few hours yesterday setting up my Wifes new ipod touch, syncing with my computer and wireless router, downloading a new version of itunes, then registering, setting up a new e-mail account, what a pain all sorted now. PS love the knife Bela, being a custom knife collector myself, wouldn't mind seeing a few more of the guys knives included in their shave of the day, given me a idea maybe next week.
    I love my sandal wood shave days!! I use this combo lots though it's been a bit. Going to have to try it again!!!!The TOBS Balm is wonderful!
    I agree on Bela's photo. Nice touch!!!

    I love Cocobolo wood grain. Such a nice pattern. Beautiful.

    No Shave this morning as I have to teach some people how to shoot. Maybe have a end of day shave to relax tonight after cleaning guns...

    Default SUNDAY SHAVE

    PREP:Hot shower with face scrub
    RAZOR:Wade and Butcher " For barbers use" Full Hollow
    BRUSH: Rudy Vey Chubby
    UBERLATHER: Qed Sandalwood with Trumpers Sandalwood
    ASB:Trumpers Skinfood Sandalwood
    EDT: Elizabeth Arden for Men Sandalwood
    RESULTS: TOTAL BBS BLISS.....
    Had to get up early for work after just leaving there not but 5 hours ago, so I needed a real treat. I havent used an Uberlather since I got carried away with soaps, but this one reignited my love for them. Great lather, and a Nice Sheffield Steel, melted away my 24hr growth like nothing. 3 passes and a touchup to BBS town. At the end put some skinfood and a spray of EA sandalwood, and all is well in the world.
    AWESOME SOTDs GENTS!!!!
