Omega 30005
T&H Rose crm
Merkur "1904"
Dorco 301 #2
DR Harris Pink
Equipage EdT

A well-respected gentleman at Basenotes described Equipage as old-school smooth. I agree, and would use the same terminology for both the tools and results of today's shave.

Hobby week for shave of the day. One of my hobbies is deer hunting, so here is one of my stainless razors with a stainless Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter .41 mag. pistol that I use to hunt deer.

I'm amazed every time I use the Noxzema, it's just that good. I could use it full time with not a worry.

Monday Shave

Monday, March 22, 2010

E.J. Chatsworth
Bolzano Superinox
Body Shop Old Formula SC
Vulfix 2234 Super
Dickinson’s Witch Hazel
Ogallala Bay Rum

Very nice shave--just a tad short of BBS. This was my first use of a Bolzano blade, and it definitely is a quality blade. Future shaves will give me an idea of its longevity.

I was in a bay rum mood this morning, so chose Ogallala Bay Rum toner, which proved to be an excellent finish.
