Shave of the Day - 10/20

Proraso Pre Shave
Jeff's Soap Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #227
Gillette Single Ring
Gillette Silver Blue
CWR
Thayer's Peach WH
Pinaud Vanilla

I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Jeff's Soap Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #227 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Gillette Single Ring razor and Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Peach WH and then Pinaud Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Probak DE Razor

I got this Probak razor on eBay, but it took eleven days to get to me. For some reason it was stuck in a loop between Greenville SC and here. Today, it arrived. The package was perfect, nothing amiss. Also in the mail was a puck of vintage Colgate Shaving Mug Soap. I have been looking forward to trying it out. I will be featuring it all next week. Anyhow, this page is about the Probak. I cleaned it up and discovered a few spots where it has plate loss. Otherwise it seems in great shape. I will put it to the test on Monday. I am glad it made it for Open Comb OCtober.







JR#28 Joins the Air Force

I am modifying the bottom of the #28 brush to take an Air Force medal for a guy on TSD. The medal came in today, and I have set it with epoxy. Here it is. It will go out tomorrow to its new home.
