    Thumbs up Sun October 23rd - Sat October 29th

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Maxtom
    Brush: C2 - 2 band
    Soap: Cyril R Salter French Vetiver
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Vetiver de Carven
    EDT: Vetiver de Carven
    Summary: We had another gorgeous hot and sunny day (the last few days of the year) but you can tell it's coming to an end and colder times are ahead of us. I love to use the more earthy scents for those colder winter days. What's not better than my 'Numero Uno' choice of Vetiver. Anyone that knows me, knows I'm a vetiver junkie . The stronger, earthier and pungent the better. The C2 badger brush is such a dream to use. It's a great brush that not only fits my hands like a glove but also whips up a ton of lather in no time. I also had to test shave a Maxtom so combined with the Vetiver it turned out a total bliss. I couldn't be happier. It was the perfect combo. I got extra approval from both the Missus and Vivi.
    We're heading to the end of the month. Wishing everyone a great, super enjoyable new week!

    Good Morning Gentlemen,

    I had a couple of days away in Abu Dhabi. Arrived back last night and caught up with all of the great SOTD posts. I made do with a feather DE, joy to be back and shave with a straight this morning.

    Prep: Shower
    Strop: TI Paddle Strop
    Brush: Semogue, 2030 Boar
    Cream: Proraso
    Razor: Dovo Master's
    Finish: Allume Di Rocca Narturale
    EDC: Jo Malone 154 Cologne

    I didn't shave yesterday, face felt like it was covered with sandpaper. Lovely 3 pass shave. Nice and smooth.

    Have a Great Week

    Thanks, Béla.
    You gave us the chance for remembering the revolution in Hungary 1956.
    3 years ago in the GDR there was the same situation.
    Both revolutions colapsed.

    Here you get my personal SOTD:

    Good morning Gents!

    Shave prep: Face wash
    Brush: Frank Shaving finest badger
    Soap: Crabtree & Evelyn, Sandalwood
    Scuttle: Robert Becker large
    Razor: Le Hospital Bayle Annonay, 6/8 round point hollow
    Strop: nun2sharp's hanging leather strop
    After Shave Splash: Home made Sandalwood splash
    Notes: I just honed the razor this morning, it needed a lick on the hones and it effortlessly plowed through my morning stubble. The sandalwood splash is a new blend of mine, a touch of geranium and coriander supports the wood, and citrus plays in the top. It weighs in at 72% alcohol/144 proof, and has a little glycerin in it for hydration. I often think sandalwood can be too much, but this is just right. Slow comfortable 2-pass shave left me wonderfully BBS. Feeling good this morning!

    Honing Regimen: touched up on a Norton Barber hone
    Strop: Neil Miller cordovan shell

    Results: As some of you guys may know, back in February I wrecked my foot and suffered 25 fractures in it. My surgeons told me that I would never be able to run again. Well, yesterday I stepped up on my treadmill. Six kilometers later, my surgeons were proven wrong What a great feeling to get a proper run in! I'll be pacing myself, but now my lost goals seem achievable once again. A celebratory shave today completes my perfect weekend
    Have a great week guys!!

    Its been 3 or 4 days since my last shave so I decided the recently touched-up W&B might be a suitable option.
    And what a great selection it was. 3 slow passes and I'm smoooooth as a catfish's belly
    This was an afternoon shave and my youngest son Elvis was hangin' out with me for this one.
    He loves sampling the aftershaves.
