ISD Announcement Not the posting thread.

Post by Str8G8r » Thu Jan 11, 2007 10:52 am

Super Speeds (all years)

Classic soap (Wool fat being 1st choice)

Feather blades

SMF III (Works well with soaps and besides I haven't worn the newness out of it!)

Traditionally the ISD has been the first Sunday of the month. Let's try a week day this time. The 1st of Febuary falls on Thursday. There you have it. The ISD for Feb.

This may be the first ISD I can do without any new purchases, provided my brush gets here in time.
Now, no new purchases - is that good or bad news?

You have Wool Fat. That is always good news!

Dominic,

That depends on whether you are on your 2nd or 3rd mortgage!

Closest I'll be able to get is a Tech with a Feather, and Arko stick soap (it's tallow-based).

Well, I can cover those bases pretty well, although I'd have to substitute D R Harris's soap for the Mitchell's/Kent. Only one day, though. No way I'd use a Feather blade for a week running. My skin would simply not approve.
Regards,
Gordon

I’m in. I have 10 Feathers dormant in my shave den. February 1 will be the first time using one. Hope my face will look presentable by the 14th, at least for my fiancé’s sake.

Oh, and could somebody correct the typo in the thread title, please? Call me a stickler. Because I'm a stickler. :-)

John, this will be my first Feather, too. The ones I got from Letterk six months ago are still in the mailing envelope. I plan to get up 10 minutes early so I can shave verrry sloooowly and enjoy it more.

Glen,
Only 10 minutes!! I figure if I get out in a half hour I'm doing well. My wife insists it is an hour.

Sorry, Pete, I wasn't clear. I'm going to get up an extra 10 minutes early, and add that to my usual, embarrassingly long shave-time.

How long of time are you talking about? Just need to know if my time is excessive or justified. SWMBO also swears it is an hour, but i think it is more like 25-30 minutes. (Only been using a DE a couple of weeks). An hour would include All three S' and probably brushing teeth.

This morning I took about 35 minutes for everything, including brushing my teeth. I didn't floss though... don't tell my dentist. 8-[

Whatever amount of time you need to get the job done right is justified, in my opinion.

I take 25-30 minutes just to shave, from dry counter-top to toweled-down counter-top at the end -- so, about half the time of some of my first wet-shaves!

And that's another bump for the ISD announcement!

Well, I won't have an SMFIII brush. I sat on the fence too long, and didn't pull the trigger in time (even with the extension). So, I have no one else to blame. But, I will be able to use a Super Speed with some shave soap and a Feather blade.

Here's hoping we all have a great Groundhog's Eve shave.

I doubt my SMF III will be here in time, I was the last one to order one. I DO have all the other stuff though, ao I'll participate. I haven't used my Kent soap for quite a while. It'll be fun.

Well I got on to bump this as a reminder for tomorrow but I guess I don't need to do that! Oh wait I just did...
