    Thumbs up Sun December 4th - Sat December 10th

    .
    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: G&F Adoration
    Brush: Thäter SRP 2011 2 band
    Cream: Cyril R Salter Vetiver
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Vetiver Carven
    EDT: Carven Vetiver
    Summary: Today I was finally able to break in my new SRP 2011 group buy Thäter brush. Had it soak for 10 minutes while I was taking a shower. Whipped up a ton of vetiver lather in no time. What can I say. It felt like being on cloud 9. The brush and shave was just sublime. It was all I expected it to be and more. Extremely soft and luxurious tips, backbone, resilience and a nice density. It just sucked on to my face like a sponge. I had enough leftover lather to go another round or 2. The handle is a perfect fit. Overall I would classify this brush as A+. Off course I had to use my vetiver products to celebrate. I hope everyone else who joined the group buy is as happy and satisfied as myself.
    For me the new SOTD has started with a bang. Wishing everyone else the same.

    Oh Max...That brush is a beauty . The fact that it is "sublime" is not surprising...after all, we all know the Master Designer; "YOU". I can't wait to get mine. It was supposed to be Friday, got pushed to today and now it looks like (hopefully) Monday

    Good morning friends.



    At the christmas market we met a lot of people. In 2013 we'll send a church choir to our sister city Lynchburg, VA and therefor we need a lot of money. We spoke with local politicians and some donors.
    It works, I think.

    Have a nice sunday.

    Todays shave a bit early as i'm off to a wedding later on today, the feather AS-D1 made mince meat of my two days growth, super smooth two pass shave, the only trouble the wedding is in Brecon 20 miles from home so i'm the driver and no drinking for me such a shame, but still i.m really looking forward to the Hog roast and the crispy crackling.

    Location: Coffs Harbour Australia
    Strop: Osgar Vintage Shell Horse
    Brush: Premium A Silvertip Badger in Cocobolo
    Uber: Proraso Soap, C.O. Bigelow Cream, Glycerin
    Razor: Simmons Barber's Pet 5/8
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel
    Balm: C.O. Bigelow Mentha
    The Barber's pet did a great job removing the 3 days of growth, but the star of tonights shave was the Uber.
    I love this combination, especially on a summer evening after spending a couple of hours mowing the lawn.
    Just so REFRESHING
    I really need a menthol/cooling aftershave liquid to top off this combination.
    last night i ordered a bottle of Aqua Velva Ice Blue from ebay. I've never used it or smelled it before but fingers crossed I, and SWMBO will like it.
