    Post Week of November 27 SOTD - Monday

    Pre-Shave: Hot shower
    Brush: 24mm Morris & Forndran, 2-band Blonde Badger
    Razor: 11/16" J.A. Henckels #50, Full Hollow Ground, Spike Point
    Edge Refresh: 5 (light) laps on CrOx-treated Premium IV leather
    Strop: 0/60 laps (Tony Miller Heirloom Horsehide)
    Soapreme: Al Raz Custom "Spicy" Shave Creme + Heslinger "Honey" Shave Soap + Glycerin
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel (Rose, no alcohol)
    After Shave/Cologne Splash: Flo´d Italian Blue
    After Shave Balm: RazoRock AS Wax
    Cologne: Acca Kappa "Muschio Bianco" EdT
    Results: One can never go wrong with a Henckels. Today's shave with the #50 was no exception. After a quick edge refresher on CrOx, this baby was ready for action. The concoction with Al's shave creme and the Heslinger soap produced an amazingly rich and lubricant lather, and filled the den with a complex and spicy aroma. What a prep and what a shave . Life is good and my face is HS (Henckel Smooth).








    Have a FABULOUS Monday gentlemen.

    History of Hibbard, Spencer and Bartlett http://www.thckk.org/history/hsb.pdf

    ETA HS&B used the trade name Iroquois even prior to 1900.
