As for as I'm concerned, this the perfect shave.  Nice picture of some great products.

How do you like the L&L?
L&L is a recent discovery, and I find it to be a terrific tallow soap. It's very slick, which I need for straights, and has excellent post shave feel. The scents are interesting. I find this one somewhat similar to Terre D'Hermes. I've also been enjoying the new fall scent, Darkfall.

I used L&L Trismegistus for the first time today and I was pleasantly surprised. Really slick and left the skin feeling great. Paired perfectly with Fine L'Orange Noir.

Wacker Old Sheffield Model 4 "Stosser"
Scrupleworks Vegetable Tanned Horsehide .. 30/50

The Wacker is probably the "wedgiest" blade I own, and I happen to like heavy grinds..

This was the first outing for Castle Forbes Cedarwood & Sandalwood cream. Quite different from Lavender .. this seems a very masculine scent .. a woodsy, earthy aroma .. no "foo-foo" here. I like it.

Great shaves thus far .. It's gonna' be a great week!

Excellent 3 passes with a cleanup today after a great Veterans Dinner at the Canadian Legion. My wife and I  where treated very well.
One of the problems I'm having with soaps other than Route 66 soaps, is that I'm expecting the same rich, thick, and slick lather that I get from my Route 66 soaps. Just not happening for me. Therefore, I'm focusing on Route 66 soaps for the rest of November.

Once upon a time I shaved with the Gillette Silver Blue blades in a Merkur 23c and a Gillette Slim.  I didn’t like it at all because it felt very harsh on my face.  Today, I used at Gillette Silver Blue blade in the Gillette Fat Boy and it mowed right through 4 days of growth yielding a marvelous BBS shave devoid of any irritation.
