Weber DLC razor
Dorco ST-301 blade
Omega 10066 boar brush
Colgate Cup Soap
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
M&L Florida Water Cologne w/added menthol

Today's shave ended up ok but the journey there wasn't all that great. Hadn't used a boar brush in eons and had trouble getting adequate lather. Guess I'm to used to synthetic brushes and how they work so very well for me. Anyway, a not so great lather and the Dorco blade proved to be a little rough and uncomfortable. I will give the Dorco another chance tomorrow but with different brush/soap and see what happens. Now go enjoy your day folks

Weber DLC razor
Dorco ST-301 blade
Shave Revolution Evo brush
TSD Lemongrass SS w/2x menthol
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
TSD Lemongrass A/S w/2x menthol

My eyes are watering cuz this shave was really really cold. Oh my word cold. And I liked it! But I didn't like the Dorco blade. I remember now why they were sitting where they were, way in the back. And that's where they are going again. As yesterday, the shave ended up ok but didn't like the journey with the Dorco. Oh well, live and learn. Now go enjoy your day folks.

Parker/Scotch&Stowe franken razor
Astra SP blade
WD Sliver Tip brush
Palmolive Mentholated SC
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
Jason's Aloe Vera balm
M&L Florida Water cologne w/added menthol

Parker 94r handle = 58 grams. S&S handle = 78 grams. And that made a significant difference in the shave. With a normal 94r I get close, comfortable shaves that I enjoy. With the S&S handle the Parker head turned into a ravenous beast i.e. very very aggresive (to me). Being careful, I got a fine shave but no more of that combo. Love the Palmolive SC, it's performance and cooling factor are top notch. Now go enjoy your day folks

Parker 94r razor
Astra SP blade
Shave Revolution Metaloid synthetic brush
Palmolive Mentholated SC
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
Colorado Sage cologne

Putting the Parker head back on the Parker handle (where it should be) resulted in a wonderful shave. The 94r is one of my favorite's and deservedly so I think. Always a close comfortable shave. So I'm ready to go, not sure where I'm going today but I'm ready. Now go enjoy your day folks.
