    Nice close shave, waiting on my final 2 assessments to be returned to me but I’m pretty happy, I got my classes done in 2 weeks which while working full time seems like a great result.

    Pre: Warm Coconut Oil
    Soap: Razorock
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    Razor: J A Henckels 6/8"
    Post: Jojoba/essential oil mix
    Not a big fan of the Razorock soap so I'm fairly liberal with it and ended up with enough soap left over for another couple of shaves. It does a good job though otherwise it'd sit in the draw or get shifted.

    Gillette Rocket 'Parat'
    Gillette Super Stainless 1989
    William Mug Soap
    Vintage Aqua Velva Ice Blue

    Double-WTG, XTG & ATG for a damn smooth shave.

    I never had good results with William Mug when I was doing my lathering in a mug, however, it's different story since I'm using it like a shaving stick. :)

    Brought a flat top heavy to work today for a run. It's been a long while since I gave a disposable blade a run.

    Nope Nope Nope... that's it, I'm done with disposables! They're all going on the BST.

    Well then.. look forward to your BSTs (btw they aren't public anymore after today). (y)
    So the g-bar too inefficient for you, it is a mild shaver? :whistle:

    If you go tomorrow to the Sydney Meetup can you please bring that lovely razor for me to admire (hold) :love:

    Know we will be sniffing a lot tomorrow and if you have space in your bag I would love to smell the mayflower.
    Think i'm kinda in the flower to woody smells at present. If not, totally understand :)
