Shave of the Day (SOTD) Saturday August 25, 2012
[Image: SOTD-08252012.jpg]
Prep: Brush soaking in ice water, face wash/scrub with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cleanser, cold shower
Razor: Merkur 1904 Open Comb mounted on an iKon Bulldog Handle
Blade: Gillette India Wilkinson Sword
Brush: Semogue 1438 Boar
Cream: SuperMax Ultimate 3 Classic
AS: Canoe
Post: Cold Water Rinse, Alum Rub, Cold Water Rinse, Double Splash Of Aftershave.

After waiting all day for the postman to arrive and then he shows up empty handed, I was disappointed that I would not be able to use new gear today.

I loaded one of the Indian made Gillette Wilkinson Sword into the 1904 head and figured I could do a nice mild three pass shave. This is a blade you keep seeing me use and raving about. It is inexpensive yet our performs many blades costing two to three times the dollar amount.

The SuperMax Ultimate 3 Classic is an inexpensive cream that performs exactly the way that it should, it is too bad that it is has stopped being produced. Building a great lather takes only about a minute. Your face feels so conditioned after your rinse that you would swear you had put a good quality lotion on your skin.

Three full passes, a small amount of j-hooks and buffing around my neck provided as close to a BBS that I can get from almost any razor/blade combination. Just an outstanding shave.
