    Thumbs up Sun August 19th - Sat August 25th

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Germania Cutlery Works
    Brush: Simpson PJ3
    Cream: Sandalwood-Rose Alraz
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Razorock Wax
    EDT: Calvin Klein - Obsession
    It doesn't happen often but once in a a while I have to leave the house on Saturday night for a, what's going to be, very late party. So I decided to start the new SOTD earlier as I know a few of my European brothers eagerly await posting the new SOTD. Posting a SOTD with a few drinks to much is also not a very good idea . I'm leaving shortly anyways.
    The Oxford Razor was a test shave after I had nicely honed it up with my usual progression of stones and finisher. Caramba! I was pleasantly surprised by the sharp, smooth edge and shave I got. Just splendid. Excellent shaver. Not to mention the sandalwood-rose cream that just explodes in lather, smells divine and does a perfect job on the skin. Same with the Razorock AS Wax (love that stuff). I'm ready for my party!
    See you guys tomorrow. Have a great week.

    The Vost razor and the Cella were both gifts from Oz (Onimaru55) at the Sydney get together last year, and man they performed well.

    Razor – Torrey
    Brush – Semouge boar
    Soap – Valobra
    AS – ALUM & Bay Rum

    Here is my go to quick shave set up. Hot water then face lather with the Valobra. One pass WTG. Touch up some spots and done. Vintage Bay Rum for a splash is right and good.
