    Thumbs up Sun March 25th - Sat March 31st


    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Otto Deutsch's Hans
    Brush: Simpson Chubby 2
    Soap: QED Sandalwood
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    ASB: AOS Sandalwood
    EDC: Elizabeth Arden for Men - Sandalwood


    Today's shave was all sandalwood. QED's sandalwood is just plain invigorating. No wonder with the amount of EO Charles adds into his soaps. The AOS sandalwood is also one I do enjoy and nothing beats a good old spritz of sandalwood EDC to keep the scent going. Talk about scent layering. But, none of these products would be of any use if my Hans Otto didn't perform. A classic razor that needs no introduction.


    Let's make the best out of the last week of March! Thanks for making the brotherhood into the Mother of all SOTD's.

    Early Start today. Great Stuff so far. Bela, I love that you kept that W&B with the patina. Really like that one.

    Default Sunday morning!

    Another beautiful morning in Norway.

    Today I used the Devin Thomas custom. It is a rather unique piece, with fossilized Mammoth bone scales and a feather patterned Damascus steel.
    The Thäter paired with the Xpec made for superb lather.
    To top it all off I added some Xpec ASB and Cologne afterwards. A perfect shave in my book.
