Good Thursday morning all...

Fat handle Tech w/ Feather (6)
Omega boar
VDH glycerin ss+Speick sc
Thayers Original WH w/ aloe
Anherb a/s balm
Acqua di Selva Edc

Great shave with tons of lather...the $12 boar does a great job holding the lather and the Tech/Feather combo is as smooth as ever...great finish with the Acqua di Selva, a bargain Edc in my book.

Omega 49
1940’s Super Speed w/ 7 O’clock Yellow (3)
VDH/Arko Moist superlather
Thayer’s Witch Hazel
Aqua Velva, Nivea Sensitive

I’m still new to wetshaving, and I’m still at a point where I’m exploring new soaps and creams. This shave reminded me not to forget about, or underestimate the power of a nice superlather. A nice, protective lather to rival either of my current favorites (Tabac, Cella), and one of the most comfortable shaves I think I ever had.
