    Nice, slow and steady shave today.

    Sunday Shave and Haircut
    Prep: Lukewarm Shower, Clearly Natural Aloe Vera
    Razor: T. Noonan and Sons Arabic
    Brush: Omega Boar
    Soap: Tabac Shavesitck
    AS: Nivea Balm, Thayer's Lavendar Witch Hazel
    Finish: Classic Match (CK Obsession)
    Decided this was far too nice a razor to settle for "almost there" and toss it in the cabinet only to use in once in blue moon. The edge is there it's just a bit muddy. So before I took it back to the stone, I decided to employ a highly technical strategy known as "stropping the piss out of it" After a couple hundred laps on canvas and leather, the edge seemed a bit crisper. The haircut was near BBS and the face shave was really good too.

    When deciding on which razor today i almost forgot about my Dovo 55. Boy she lived up to her rep. Outstanding shave. It has also been a while since i used Bayrum. What a wonderful scent. Loved every minute of my shave till my daughter came in. Makes me nervous when i have an edge to my throat. LOL!

    Great start to a week. Let hope this PERFECT Storm there predicting for us is a bust!

    Ironically, I saw Rene's post come up as I was taking my picture for tomorrow's shave. I also reached for the Dovo but I paired it with the Bomb in my custom Rose/Sandalwood scent. The lather will be beaten into submission with the Rover and I'll just have to see what strikes me in the smelly category. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great start to the week. Personally, I'll be watching the locals act like it's the apocalypse as Sandy does its thing along the east coast...

    Prep: Warm shower
    Brush: AoS Pure Badger
    Cream: C.O. Bigelow
    Bowl: Hand Made Japanese Bowl
    Razor: Dovo 5/8 Carpe Diem in multiwood handles
    Strop: SRD 3in Black Latigo w/ poly
    Shave: 2 passes WTG and XTG
    AS: Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    ASB: Gillette Fusion ProSeries Intense Cooling
    Results: The shave that I had this morning was something to write home about. The sun, the moon and the stars aligned. The stropping felt and sounded amazing the lather came together like a dream. The razor cut though my beard like a Laser and when I was done I archieved BBS. After my shave it was time for a 7 mile run. I wish my run was as good as my shave.
