-- Monday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankenrazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon bulldog handle
Blade: Polsilver SI (2)
Brush: Ever-Ready 650PB restored with TGN two band finest
Soap: Mike's Natural Orange Cedarwood and Black Pepper
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze (used as brush scuttle)
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers alcohol free witch hazel

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Great shave. Close, comfortable and pleasurable. Love the my second restore. I think this turned out so good that I really had a tough act to follow. I learned a lot with it and have made and restored many brushes since then. Some of them amazingly good, but this one still remains one of my best. I love it when a plan comes together.
