SOTD FATHER’S DAY 6/21/2020

Great shave today! Did very careful WTG and ATG passes on my mug with no mishaps. The final result before I grabbed the VAS VC4 was a CCS with some stubble patches where I couldn’t figure how to hold the Dovo and allow for the proper angle.

Part of the issue may be arthritis, but I consider it a work in progress. The VC4 sheared any remaining stubble right down to the skin line. I then did the same for the noggin! Have to keep it short today. My 2 yr old youngest grandson is coming over for a swim today on Father’s Day. In a nutshell, I feel cool, clean and velveteen!

RAZOR: Dovo Special (Face), Valet Auto Strop VC4 (Head)
BLADE: Feather FHS-10
PREP: Cold water rinse and Chel Cooling Gel as Preshave
BRUSH: Alpha T-400 w/ 26mm Boar Ferrule
CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature w/ 6 drops of M-Bomb
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with Glyce Glycerin soap followed by Humphreys Lilac WH and Nancy Boy Signature ScentCooling Gel

Sunday night:

Razor: Rockwell 6C (on setting/plate 2)
Blade: Treet Dura Sharp

Brush: Vulfix 375 (Super Badger)*
Soap: Tim's Soap, Prototype S6

Lather made on top of the soap
Two-and-a-half passes

Aftershave: Cold water rinse and Thayer's Peach Witch Hazel

* This floppy, fairly sparsely knotted brush is totally unsuited to face-lathering. However, for lathering in a bowl or on top of the cake of soap, it is incredibly efficient. I haven't used this brush for some time and I was amazed how quickly it produced a copious amount of high-quality lather.
