    Default Neglected Razor Week

    At the moment I have 18 shave ready razors in my rotation. When you tend to favour a handfull of razors and lately I've only been shaving 3 or 4 times a week, some of those razors can go months without getting out for a run.
    So my next few shaves will be with those razors who have not seen enough action lately.

    Location: Coffs Harbour Australia
    Strop: Osgar Vintage Shell Horse
    Brush: Franks Finest Badger
    Cream: TOBS Lemon & Lime
    Razor: Unknown Sheffield Wedge 6/8
    Astringent: Thayer's Witch Hazel
    Balm: C.O. Bigelow Mentha
    A/S: Old Spice
    The TOBS was another sample Rene sent me recently, and I really like this one. It will go on the list of creams to order one day.
    The razor has only recently been honed and performed beautifully. A great 3 pass BBS.

Praying of course the CAT scan and MRI come back OK.
    We're always thinking of young Bailey. Hope everything goes smoothly and your done with treatment ASAP.

    That looks like a serious razor, Jeff! Nicely done and if it's anything close to my Max Sprecher razor (wich I think it is) it's one helluva razor!

    Carl: My best wishes and thoughts go out to the little guy and his close ones!
