Thought I would make it a memorable one. Anyone else break out the special gear for tonight?

I had a tremendous shave this morning, though I failed to remember it was the last of the decade. Muhle R41 2011, Wizamet blade, Castle Forbes Lime cream, Grooming Dept Citrus pre-shave, Elite Manchurian brush, Chatillon Lux Admiral aftershave. I’m sure I’ll never do that random combo again, so it will remain unique.

Awesome! I have a large lot of vintage Wizamets coming to me in the mail that I am very excited about.

You are going to go 366 days without shaving?  The current decade ends on December 31 of 2020.  

(Think about it:  even theoretically, there never was a Year Zero.  The start date for the Common Era was not assigned until long after the year in question, but our system says that the year after 1 BC (or BCE) was 1 AD (or CE), nothing in between.  Therefore, the end of the first decade was the last day of the year 10, and the second decade began the next day, the first day of year 11.)

Looks like a really nice shave set-up, though, to last you for 366 days.  :-)

Haha. I guess I didn’t think about that way. Probably should’ve said last shave of “the teens”. Everything I was seeing on tv was referring to all the “great things that happened this decade”. Guess that’s where I got it. 

And being a Firefighter, no, the Chief wouldn’t appreciate a 366 day beard I think.

If you're at all like me, you'll love the Wizamets. I have 490 remaining in my den. I hope I don't run out.

So what are you going to be using when the new decade actually begins in another year on Jan 1, 2021?

My wife is a mathematician and agrees with Mel. One more year of the decade shaves to go.

Haha ok, since there are now more responses to my post about which decade it is instead of the gear you used,
I felt compelled to perform a quick google search on a general consensus. Both seem to be correct, and it appears to be subjective. To each their own, no worries.

My post was more about wanting to know what you fine gentlemen were planning on using to trim your whiskers before a wonderful last evening... “of the teens”..., or whatever you prefer to call it.

Btw, to start “the twenties” yesterday, I chose the Red Tip my father left me, with a Light Brigade I purchased from another wonderful member here, and a 1930’s Houbigant Fougere soap.

Outstanding.

I don’t know why I don’t shave with these more often.

Perhaps because you would exhaust your unrenewable stash pretty soon? Tongue
