Monday, February 27th

Razor: Vintage Weck Open Comb* (Thanks Obie)
Blade: Schick Plus Platinum*
Brush: Shavemac 2007 LE*
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Violet (Tallow Version)*
A/S: Yardley Spice*

I enjoyed an excellent shave with mostly discontinued items (marked with an *). The Weck Open comb is a mild shaver but it gave me a great 3 pass shave. The old tallow version of the Trumper soaps are excellent and it is a real shame that they felt the need to reformulate to a palm oil base. A splash of Yardley Spice and I am on my way. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Good afternoon. Monday AM:

Jaggerooney w/Dorco 301, #6

NB Signature
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel
Harris Pink
English Fern

I shaved so late yesterday all I needed was a one pass this morning, so I pushed the blade further than normal. Nice "shave".
