Semogue 1438 | Merkur 1904 w/ Red IP | Proraso Crema Pre E Dopo Barba | RazoRock AL Chianti Lavender SS | Al Raz's ASB Custom "El Tangerino"
Hello everyone! These were all great combos but I think the blade was a bit dull. So I ended having some razor burn but nothing alarming where it felt like fire. Oh well, face lathering with Semogue 1438 is quite a pleasure and has the exfoliating properties for a shaving brush. I hope you have a great day!

I put off trying the Veg until the very last day of the week because quite honestly, I don't like the way it smells in the bottle. All the comments of "cat piss" have made me think "cat piss" when I smell the Veg even though I have never actually smelled cat piss. Anyways the shave was awesome as always but the real reason I shaved this morning was for the Veg.
As I slapped it on my face, the burn was more intense than I thought it would be but not terrible. Might have been the new Med Prep. Anyways, After the initial "holy crap this scent is strong whatever it is" I realized that I smelled flowers. It was an awesome feeling having closure that, yes in fact, I could use the Veg from time to time and not be hating myself for using it.
Very fun shave today.
Happy Friday Gents!

After reading the "Tech Tuesday" thread, I decided to pull out one of my Techs for a while and get to know it again. I still like my Muhle R89 better, but the Tech is a fine razor, and it gave me a very fine shave, indeed!
Thanks for reading!

Greg...Shaving,Cigars and Whiskey...It's "ME" Time
Today another item premiered in my shave den: the Vitos soap which came as an add-on to my Tech this week.
- face prep: Mehmet Aydin soap
- Vitos soap, hjm badger
- early 60s aluminum Gillette Tech, Feather@3
- Mennen Skin Bracer
To me the Vitos' scent is between the moderate Cella and the more intense Figaro. This fellow is quite thirsty, I had to add a lot more water than with any other soap I used before. Even though I used a generous amount to start with, I had to add more to the brush before each single pass.
The lather is, as with similar soft soaps from Italy, rich, slick and works perfectly fine.
5/8 Clauss / 24mm Silvertip / Eton College / OBR Sandalwood / Stetson
Todays shave was with my newest restore, my Clauss with covered tang. My favorite Scent is OBR sandalwood combined with a touch of Stetson EdT. Great combination. The Gem was a gift, and I used it to clean up the stragglers today for the first time. It is a wonderful gentle shaver that gets really close. It was as close to BBS as I will ever get I feel. A beautiful day, a beautiful shave with beautiful razor. It doesn't get any better than this gents.!
Have a great weekend!
