    Thumbs up Sun November 18th - Sat November 24th

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Boker Collection
    Brush: SRP LE 2011
    Soap: Martin De Candre
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    ASB: Nivea Extra Sensitive
    I have a truck load of Bokers to hone so this whole WK is dedicated to test shaving. Bokers are very nice razors. My personal favorites, shave-wise is the Silver Steel, Picadilly and Arborito. The Silver Steel being my personal number 1 pick. The Martin de Candre soap is such a wonderful soap it's truly a delight to use and paired with the Thäter a luxurious event.

    Lads, have a great week!

    Default Sunday

    Prep: Hot shower
    Brush: Martinez' Custom: Chess King w/ 26mm silver tip badger
    Soap: Truefitt & Hill: Luxury Shaving Soap
    Strop: Tony Miller Heirloom tri-strop (3x25)
    Razor: Mastro Livi 8/8 Bergam Damascus in Mammoth Ivory Scales

    Unhurried, comfortable and relaxing early Sunday morning shave.
    It is still dark outside, and quiet. The smell of coffee is almost as strong as the Newport.
    I'm getting ready for my Sunday breakfast. Have a good week.

    Sunday

    Not my normal ‘Edwardian style bedroom shave for this Sunday, but s standard bathroom one as I had to go out to lunch for the wife’s birthday. She's 46, 26 of those spent with me; so she really does need congratulating.

    Up to the top of Mount Torrens and back, which was hard after yesterday’s rock climbing, but I shaved a whole FOUR seconds off my time.

    The shave was excellent, I used the new O Melhor Orange Amber. Two passes, but the second just a neck touch up really.
    An early night tonight I think…

    Strop: MickR's Roo Hide
    Cream: Taylor's of Old Bond Street- Lemon & Lime
    Brush: Frank's Fine Badger
    Razor: Invicta 13/16
    Astringent: Thayer's Witch Hazel
    Balm: Nivea Replenishing
    A/S: Old Spice
    For both it's good looks and it's shaving ability, this razor is one of my absolute favorites.
    It must have been 4 days since my last shave, and the Invicta took me to BBS in 2 passes with ease.
    This was the last of the TOBS Lemon & Lime sample that Rene sent me. Fortunately I'm ordering a bunch of stuff from SRD tonight and a new bowl of it will be on that list.

    Default Sun November 18th - Sat November 24th

    Prep: Warm shower w/ some face wash and conditioner
    Brush: AoS Pure Badger
    Soap: SRD Bay Rum
    Razor: Boker 5/8 Edelweiss in white bone
    Strop: SRD 3in Black Latigo w/ poly webbing
    Shave: 2 passes WTG and XTG (ATG on the neck)
    AS: Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum
    ASB: AoS Unscented
    Cologne: Armani Code Sport
    Result: I hadn't shaved in 4 days and I started hating life after the 3rd day and had I a craving for Bay Rum. So went all out And i did the soap in bay rum and aftershave in bay rum. Even though the AoS says its Unscented there's a clean scent that I can't explain and it mixes AMAZING with clubman bay rum. I was BBS in 2 passes and I felt like a new man, and not a caveman. After my shave the wife and I took the kiddos to Okinawa Neo Animal Park. I have 2 more days of leave then back to work.
