I had my first shave with LaToja Shave stick today. I have seen it around for a long time, just not much. I got it in a trade with Cleave ( cpool222 ) along with two tubes of CTAPT (Russian for START). The LaToja is made in Spain, so it is my only Spanish soap. It face lathered very easily today with my badger brush and cold water. It has a very light pleasant scent unlike my other shave sticks: Arko and Derby. I will be shaving with it the rest of this week.
On Amazon, it says:
Made in Spain, with special mineral salts added for extra facial conditioning and performance, La Toja is considered by many to be the finest shaving stick in current production. Comes in a protective plastic case.
Got me some La Toja recently, but I'm on my Williams month. Scent wise La Toja reminds me of a weak Tabac scent. I like Tabac, so La Toja smells good to me.
Actually I have a couple new soaps that I've got queued up for when my Williams month is over. In the que are C.O. Bigelow, Nancy Boy, VDH Ultra - unscented and I got a vintage Surrey to try as well. And I need to make it back to the excellent morning TOST as well. So it's a good thing that for my 30 day challenge I picked something other than sticking to one soap.
A few years ago we were at a sports tournament my daughter was involved in. There was a team there called the Trojans. My daughter's school has a fairly large hispanic population, so she hears and sees plenty of Spanish.
She says, "Oh the Tro-hans are here". I had a good chuckle and explained to her about the J not having the h sound this time. About 99 percent of the time she'd be correct.
9nein9: To like or not to like the like button? That is the question. Our society thrives off the like button it seems . I'm not sure if I like it or I don't like it.Just kind of got used to it .

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.
