    Wednesday, July 10, 2024: Megalodon Mittwoch


    Another Wednesday, another Megalodon. The Hathor milk-based base is really very good, and the Russian Bear is also a very smooth shaver (it’s less hollow than my other razors, and I kind of like it).

    Have a good night!

          Nope that’s almost full hollow. Ulrik describes it as Sheffield-style full hollow.

          See here for the difference:

          Sauce: Koraat

    • Brush: Grizzly Bay Shire 26mm V18 Fanchurian

    • Razor: Frederick Reynolds “The Celebrated” 4/8 Hollow Ground

    • Lather: House of Mammoth - Shire 2 - Soap

    • Toner: Thayers - Lavender - Toner

    • Aftershave: House of Mammoth - Shire 2 - Splash

    • Fragrance: Floris of London - Elite - Eau de Toilette

    2 passes. Face lather. Excellent shave.


    If you enjoy a hot very humid sauna, then the mid-Atlantic states are a great place to be. There are worse areas, but it is only a matter of degree. So, not a dry heat. Anyway, even though it is a tobacco-related scent, Shire is perfect for this. That’s totally counterintuitive, but it is.

    • Brush: Maggard 24mm Synthetic
    • Razor: Chiseled Face - Legacy Raw Titanium (#69)
    • Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (8)
    • Lather: Barrister & Mann - Pencil Pusher - Soap
    • Post Shave: Summer Break Soaps - Woodshop - Aftershave

    Pencil Pusher does smell like a freshly sharpened pencil. Initially I thought maybe it was too sweet, but once I lathered it, it’s more accurate. Nice work, B&M!

    A few months ago there was someone on Reddit asking if there’s a scent that smells like pencils. And there is a scent that’s exactly that. Maybe it was an Alt account from Will? A little teaser?

    Roaming Humpday

    • Brush: Zenith r/Wetshaving exclusive MOAR BOAR (31 mm × 57 mm bleached boar)
    • Razor: GEM Micromatic Open Comb (second generation, Djudge razor)
    • Blade: Personna GEM PTFE
    • Lather: Barrister and Mann – Roam
    • Post Shave: Barrister and Mann – Roam
    • Fragrance: House of Mammoth – Shire 2

    I recently got a sample of Roam Two, so a djudicially coordinated OG Roam shave with u/EldrormR is perfect to remind me before trying the reinterpretation. Roam Two has big shoes to fill.

    Lovely shave with the Djudge Razor, the M❤AR B❤AR, and Soft Heart.

    Shire is Roam before the rain.

        Looking forward to forming my own opinion on that second point thanks to you!
