    Comments: Much better edge this time from my JaNorton efforts. I might take it back for 5-10 further finishing strokes, but it's very, very close. I'll update the Noob Chronicle later as I'm off for brunch. Happy Sundy, SOTD Brothers!

    Post Week of January 22 SOTD - Sunday

    SHAVING WITH A FAMOUS RAZOR


    Pre-Shave: Hot shower
    Brush: 25mm Morris & Forndran, 2-band Blonde Badger (w/ Genuine Bone handle)
    Maxterpiece: 6/8" Wade & Butcher "Adamantine Edge", Wedge, Barber's Notch (w/ Grey Translucent scales + Faux ivory wedge)
    Honing (Refresh): 9 light laps on CrOx treated leather
    Strop: 5/55/60 laps (Torolf Linen / SRD Premium IV English Bridle leather / Ambrose Horsehide Clàsico leather)
    Soapreme: Art of Shaving "Lavender" Shave Creme + SRD "Lavender" Shave Soap + Glycerin
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel (Lavender, no alcohol)
    Moisturizer: Trumper's Fragrance-Free Moisturizer
    After Shave Splash: Floïd Italian Blue AS
    After Shave Balm: Al's "Lavender" ASB (light version)
    Cologne: Acca Kappa "Blue Lavender" EdT
    Results: Today's shave was with a Maxterpiece W&B, recently featured in the February issue of VRATED magazine (VRATED.COM) . Congratulations Max and I must say that it is an honor to own such a "Famous" piece of art . The shave was absolutely divine, especially when combined with mounds of the super delicious Lavender-scented überlather. Despite her heavy wedginess, this razor provided a super close and comfortable shave that rivals her hollower cousins. I am ready for a beautiful, family filled Sunday and some projects in preparation for a super busy work week.







    Have a MAGNIFICENT week gentlemen . The pdf page from the magazine is attached for those interested.

    Much more I like page 2 in VRATED!
    ...and page 84 and the following.

    But the razor is also "sharp".

    And congrats to Max, because this magazin reports about his artwork.

    Default Sweet Sunday Shave

    Great turnout today! AWESOME STUFF!

    Great shave today! This Wade and Butcher is another one coming out of the display case into the rotation. It was in there as I managed to develop others worthy to accompany it. The edge on it is fantastic, as is the balance. It has been a benchmark for some time! Proud to bring it into the fold!

    Everyone have a great week! Make some good things happen!
