    Jul 9, 2024 - A Long Time Coming

    • Brush: Stirling Soap Co. Green & Ivory 24mm Synthetic 2-Band Synthentic Knot
    • Razor: Karve Shaving Co. Overlander
    • Blade: Gillette 7 O’Clock Super Stainless (Green) [6]
    • Lather: Summer Break Soaps - Rope Swing - Soap
    • Post Shave: Lucky Tiger - Face Tonic - Aftershave (Alcohol Free)

    I’ve been sick for the last few days, while on vacation, and today is the first day I’ve felt like shaving. Rope Swing was the perfect way to get back into it. The Overlander had no issues with taking down several days growth.

    Rating: 4.5/5

      What a terrific brush! A 30mm Motherlode must feel amazing.

        In theory I should love this Motherlode, but the glue bump is quite bulbous. It feels kind of weird when I splay the knot. It feels great when painting, but like a good splay.

          That’s a shame. I have a 26mm Motherlode in a brush. Such a unique knot. Does not have that issue. Where did you get yours?

      Is it literally every ready, or only most of them?

        Good catch! To my knowledge, it’s every Ready 400 with a 30mm Motherload in existence.

    Tabac Tuesday

    • Brush: Dogwood Handcrafts Tabak Oridjinal, now with 28 mm Gelousy knot
    • Razor: Zwilling J. A. Henckels Friodur 72-V (13/16", quarter hollow or near wedge, stainless steel)
    • Lather: Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original
    • Aftershave: Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original
    • Fragrance: Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original

    Enjoying yet another silky smooth shave with the Frio cleaver. Maybe I’ll make this a wedge week.

    The splash is almost killed, and I’m considering one of those comically large big gulp Stank® splash bottles.

      It’s like I always say – “Everything in moderation, except when it comes to big gulp Stank bottles”.
