Vitos Pre Shave Cream TOBS Cedarwood Shaving Cream Lee Sabini Prototype Badger Brush Giles Shaving Co Bowl GEM Micromatic Clog-Pruf with a GEM SS PTFE Blade Thayers Witch Hazel with Cucumber MWF Moisturiser Quorum AS and EDT
A post night shift shave. 3 passes to make me feel human again.
Post shave: Alum Block, cold water splash, Homemade Bay Rum Astringent
Balm: Vintage Tabac Black
Aftershave: Tabac Original Splash and EDC
Another fine, comfortable shave today.
3 wide smiled audible passes giving a BBS finish.
The Vintage Creams are a joy to use although the scent is a bit diminished but still "clean" smelling, i also leave a coating of pears soap on the chin as i feel it adds a bit slickness to the shave which these vintage creams seem to lack, i sometimes add a couple of drops of glycerin to the lather for a similar effect.
Again i have shampooed the Vintage brush after use, they are not used regularly so this is done to keep any nasties at bay, i actually use medicated dog shampoo with tea tree oil. Keeps them tip top.
The Vintage Tabac Black balm has lost its scent a bit compared to the up to date version but still works well, then the Splash and EDC gives me that 70's hit.
A very happy shaver today, clean, smooth and refreshed.
A walk with the dogs on this cloudy morning then off to visit the Mothership.
Have a great Sunday All.

So much for a Recovery Day. One short phone call and I have an extra 6 hour shift dropped on me later:(
A 2 pass maintenance shave to keep me respectable and a very nice finish.
Cold Water Rinse Mitchell's Wool Fat Jayaruh #313 Ever-Ready Lather Catcher Henckels Wedge CWR Cella After Shave
My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #313 Badger Brush. I did two passes and a cleanup with the Ever-Ready Lather Catcher razor with a Henckels Wedge blade. It was not as close as I would like, so I did a clean up pass with my Schick G and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Cella After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.
