SOTD Saturday 22nd to Friday 28th Aug 2020


And the theme for this exceptionally early morning at work shave was 'Get in there'


Rare I ever make an early entry so yup, I thought 'Get in there'

A half half shave using the very kindly gifted 'Maestro' straight to practice on this areas I feel confident about outside of a pork chop. And the brass General with a Feather Super Professional for those areas outside of a practice piece of meat.

Brush and lathering curtesy of Alvarez Gomez and the Yaqi Dandelion and a damn fine fluffy job they did.

Altogether one great shave and a very happy smiling man at this end. Just to ruin a happy smiley shave I find myself sat on the River Mersey on a shit night waiting for the next job to arrive at an unsociable 0200. Bollocks.

No scent tonight so as not to worry the crew too much and so a touch of diesel behind each ear to give that macho impression. If only they knew better.

I wish everyone and your families a safe and wonderful Weekend.

What more would you expect?

RR Syn. 22mm
P & B Citra Royale
Occams - Hiram Commander /Plate No2
Schick Proline [ 1 ]
Pitralon Classic A/S Lotion

A good way to start this Shaving Week, a fresh blade in the Razor. In fact the first use of a Proline in the standard Hiram set up [ sold only with a No2 plate] , but I opted for a Plate 3. In hindsight this was a bad decision, as the Standard set up with the Proline blade is so Smooth yet efficient, and I had no problems attaining a trouble free Top Notch finish. A really good Razor, which has had poor reviews because they released items not up to standard, thus alienating potential users. Get a good one and you are in for a treat. I suspect may become a collectors item rather like The Cobra.
