    Thumbs up Sun April 29th - Sat May 05th


    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Bengall
    DE: Gillette Fatboy
    Brush: Thater SRP LE
    Soap: Castle Forbes - Lime
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Booster Lime AS
    For today's shave I tried to mix things up a bit. Stropped my Bengall, 25 on linen, 50 on red latigo and got my Gillette Fatboy loaded with a Super-Max blade. It was lots of fun. Did WTG with the SR, XTG with the DE, ATG with the SR and a few leftover tough spots with the DE. Not a stubble left. My skin felt smooth as silk. It is all about having fun and a great shave.

    Enjoy the upcoming new month of May!

    I felt like something special tonight, so the one of a kind Bob Allman razor came out.
    I went all the way with a slow, relaxing 3 pass BBS.
    A fantastic shave to start the SOTD week.
    Something about a fixed blade razor, they're just so much fun to use.
