Shave of the Day - 12/9




Cold Water Rinse
Tea Tree Body Bar
Tom's 3D Printed Brush
Supply V2
Personna
CWR
Lilac Vegetal

My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Tea Tree Body Bar face lathered well with Tom's 3D Printed Brush. I did two passes and a cleanup with the Supply V2 razor with a Personna blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Lilac Vegetal. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... The TeaTree Bar did lather well, but the lather is not long lasting. To counter that, it is slick and in no way hindered the shave. I imagine that it is for guys who may shave in the shower. It has a nice scent and a light menthol cooling. It will stay in my Menthol Monday as long as it lasts. I am using it in my showers now.

Supply Provision V2

I was surprised with a Provision Supply V2 today for my birthday (late) from son David. It was not his fault it came late. Evidently there was a big rush on it after it aired on Shark Tank.

V2 with travel case

Dave did not know that I already had the V1 Supply. Here it is weighing in at 108 g being stainless steel.


The V2 weighs in at 92 g because it is an alloy razor.



I had made a case for my V1 razor.



The V2 will fit it just fine. I am planning on selling the V1 and keeping this Black Beauty.



Here they are side by side with their guards. A three months supply of blades was included. Turns out that they consider a three month supply to be nine blades.


Thanks, Dave. Great gift.

Clear TNNSERs Arrive from UK

Andreas of the UK set up a buyers group for his Transparent TNNSER razor. Six of us Yanks on this side of the pond were part of the group. I made some comment about him having to prep all the razors that were coming to him. He asked if I would be willing to do seven TNNSERs. I said, "Sure, I can do that." So, today I received this package from Andreas.



Here is the unveiling...

bubble wrap

the caps

the handles

the bottom plates

the hardware


The first razor took me about 15 minutes to prep, the second took about 10 minutes, and the rest only took about 5 minutes to prep..










Next, I went through each razor and made sure that they would take a SE blade easily.


Next, I will be packaging them and sending them to their new homes.
I did a random list generator to assign each razor to their new home. I think I can get them in the mail tomorrow.
