    Thumbs up Sun April 8th - Sat April 14th


    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Dovo Bergischer Löwe
    Brush: Thäter
    Cream: Proraso
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    ASB: Aqua Velva
    EDT: Aramis

    Today was a very short and quick shave for me. To much going on around the house. Whipped up some proraso which always explodes in gallons of lather and gives me an incredible slick shave. Went through my 3 passes with a bit more speed and still managed to get an awesome clean shave. The Aqua Velva Ice balm is delightful and what's not to love about Aramis. Definitely a combo I'd use again. Very refreshing.


    Enjoy the new week and Happy Easter to all.

    Default My first love

    Today I started with a great shave while the family was still asleep.
    This razor, the Bergischer Löwe by Dovo, was my very first straight, and it will never leave my rotation
    A delightful little razor who sings quite loud when mowing them whiskers down.
    Some Penhaligon's Opus 1870 cream, ASB and EdT to complete the experience.
    The brush today, also my very first, was the Merkur Futur Silver Tip

    Default Easter Sunday

    Location: Coffs Harbour Australia
    Strop: MickR's Roo Hide
    Brush: FS Fine Badger
    Cream: Tabac
    Razor: Invicta Coronett 6/8
    Toner: Thayer's Witch Hazel
    Balm: Nivea Replenishing
    A/S: Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    We took advantage of a beautiful day here in Coffs and spent a few hours on the beach this afternoon.
    After that though I've been feeling very tired & lazy, and tonights shave almost did'n't happen.
    I managed to summon the energy for a quick one pass shave though, and a great pass it was too.
    This combination performed so well it would have definitely been a 2 pass BBS if i had have continued.

    Razor – Wusthof – Barbers King
    Brush – Ever Ready #1
    Soap – Tabac
    AST – ALUM
    AS – Tabac

    Good morning;
    I decided to go with a German theme this morning. The Wusthof is a recent acquisition that has been restored. I am not a big fan of stain less, but this is some great steel... A Thater brush would have completed the line-up. Have a wonderful week all.
