The Williams Mug Soap Shave Soap face-lathered well with the B-400 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER by Tom with a PAL CS blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella Balsamo Dopobarba. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

I keep forgetting to post here after a Williams Wednesday
A great bowl lather with the Williams today, i thought i may have overloaded as the Alpha really whips up a lather, i ended up with enough for 4 passes and the lather was quite a good creamy one. I knew i was chancing it with the Blade taking it past 10 shaves and the blade did start to give on the 2nd pass, firstly giving a prickly feeling then started to drag a little on the ATG pass, i decided not to push it and gently finished off the shave, still 11 shaves from 1 blade is very good value. Again the Valet showing itself to be a very mild shaver (YMMV). The finish was a DFS, i do have a little "sandpaper" feel on my heavier areas around the chin and top lip, although you cannot see it, no indication at all from the block and a nice post shave finishing with the Williams Aqua Velva, sadly this Barts Balm sample is coming to and end and i probably have 1 more application of the balm left, the Lotion is about 1/4 full. Thank fully i still have quite a bit of the Lavender sample left and 5 "fullish" 50ml sets of balm and lotion of 5 of the other scents. A little goes a very long way. A very happy shaver today.
Stay safe and enjoy your day all.

I shaved with Williams today, but I did it with an Unmetionable. However, I made a video of the shave. Since I forgot to press record on last week's Williams mug-less shave, I have taken out the lathering portion of the video for this site. No unmentionables are identified or shown. Here is my Williams Mug-less face-lathering video. Enjoy. It is short.

I had a veddy nice shave with modern Williams. The big ole boar I git from twhite is still a favorite. For a razor I chose a favorite G8 that has a ton of blade feel. Just super feeling shave. The coachman was a perfect finish!

I had a Williams Thursday today. Unlike most days with Williams, I held the puck in my hand and loaded the brush, I loaded the sides of the brush better than I normally could in a mug and didn't use as much of a vertical swirl pattern. I have to say I think it was a superior load compared to out of the mug and I will go that route the next few times to see if I think it really is that or just my imagination.

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.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
