1940's nickel Tech with bakeilte handle
*KAI blade - shave #4 (I believe; I lost accurate count)
TABAC soap
Burma-Shave natural bristle
Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue a/s mixed with Jaguar Extreme EdT

*The KAI blade is very sharp and even in the mild Tech, it must be used with care. Don't sell this bade short on performance.

I've been a wet shaver for 52 years!

Tuesday Morning:

Hot Shower/Hot Towel/Proraso Glycerin Cleansing Bar
1966 Gillette TECH (Ball End)
Iridum Super (Shave #1)
Kent/Altesse Pure Badger
Nivea SC (German)
Aqua Velva Original Sport A/S
Vaseline IRML Lotion

Took someone's advice and went back to basics today with the TECH, a nice, sharp Iridium Super blade and the Nivea cream. The results were fantastic. Definite DFS territory. I have been trying a new method in between my warm water rinse and the application of the A/S. Another member (paperpundit) has been raving about the dramatic effect that the addition of a witch hazel application followed by a cold compress for about 30 seconds, has had as far as reducing his chances of developing ingrowns or razor bumps. I have tried this on my last two shaves and it has been working quite well. My technique is as follows: after my third pass I do my usual warm water rinse, followed by some Thayers Medicated Super Hazel applied from an atomizer. Then I apply a cold compress for about 30 seconds. Cold water rinse, towel dry and then the normal application of my after shave of choice and my facial moisturizer. Lovely results.

Razor: Burl Razor with Merkur Head
Blade: Gillette Yellow
Brush: Shavemac D01 Horn
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Palmolive Shave Stick (Tallow)
A/S: Pre de Provence ASB
EDT: C & E Sandalwood

A decent shave. The Gillette Yellow blade seemed to tug a bit although I ended up with a smooth shave and there was no residual burn. The PdP ASB was an appropriate finish and the C & E Sandalwood left me smelling nice -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.
