My prep was just a cold water rinse. The C.O. Bigelow Shave Cream face lathered well with the Jayaruh #144 Brush. I did two passes with the Enders Speed Razor with an Enders Speed Blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

I have come to like this Futuristic Vintage Injector since I discovered that it works very well with a Personna blade. However, today confirmed that I should have changed the blade- though it was not buggy the finish was below par.
Wednesday 28th August Alpha T400 - LEA stick (Original Tallow) - Pal Injectomatic - Vintage Pal #6 - Alum - Blue Stratos A/S - Aloe Vera Gel
The tallow version of LEA marks the end (for the moment) of my stick fest. This shave along with the others have shown me how enjoyable face lathering is using a stick. Especially when the brush knot has good backbone. Today was a good example. I've also been very impressed with the Injectomatic and vintage Pal blade. From being slightly harsh at first, the blade has matured nicely giving consistently smooth, close shaves. Plus it's definitely got more shaves under it's belt.

The blade was not the smoothest, but it was much better than the first day. Stropping definitely helped. I have one more shave slated with this blade for Friday, then it is bye-bye.
Happy Wednesday everyone. A great shave today. Have to say I forgot it was Wednesday, so for tomorrow will bust out the Williams.
In the past I had tried a Grooming Dept soap - the Lavender Mallard, but some ingredient in that soap made me want to get it off my face after about 30 seconds. This time, I backed off and got the unscented seeing that many of the ingredients were different and knowing that some of the natural oils can cause issue. Well I have to say that this soap agrees with me and does a great job. I think tomorrow when I bust out the Williams, I will also use a different razor as well. I've kind of been fixated on this one for awhile, well, because it's excellent for me. But I think I've got a Gem that is calling.
The Nancy Boy balm is a free sample I got when I ordered their shave soap.

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.
