Got a new razor, know it looks a little thin, but it is a turning kit, think I am going to use some Gillette Ranch wood on this. Heard good things about the head! Will let you know. Still have some brushes if anyone is interested including one made with Gillette ranch wood, only a hand full out there.

This is going to be fun!

It looks like the head my friend Mike uses for his turnings. If it is, you're in luck.

This week's shaves, so far. For some reason Saturday night when setting up a new blade I decided to Franken Razor.

I present the DOC-L
PAA DOC head mounted on the handle of my DE89L, I'm liking it. I might even order an even heavier handle. Also new to the den is the Omega Boar brush, it's seeing a solid 90% of the lathering duties since I received it.

My first software mail call in many months. I love it. It instantly went in my top 5 scents.
I got heavy oud from the soap. But the splash has many layers. I pick up the old sex wax scent after dry down. But it's like a little mixture of SdD meets Pom Bay with a touch of Sk8. Very cool.
Lastly, I've used six different blades in the Bakelite OCS and the feather has been the best by far (IMO...IMO..)

Hump BAY!!!

Brush: Semogue 1305 LE
Soap: Dr Jon's Anne Bonny
Razor: Colonial Razors The General
Blade: Kai Captain Titan Mild
Post: Alum and Dr Jon's Anne Bonny

I opened the tin this morning and it stopped me in my tracks. What a scent!!! It's been TOO LONG since I did a full tilt Anne Bonny #sotd. 3 scent-sational passes later I got to splash on more of the same to carry me through the day. Wonderful. The blade was a little better today, but still below the Feather Professional for me.

About this community

Welcome to the HTGAM Wet Shaving & Facial Fur Community! HTGAM I admit is a funny name for a wet shaving forum...this happened purely by accident. Rather than the HTGAM G+ being an extension of the HTGAM Brand, it was born out of our blog, an intentional extension of our site...which predates our products. That's right, we started as a blog first, a humble Man Blog to be exact. We are & were known for our interviews, reviews and articles...in fact, it's still going strong. Not sure many folks realize that. When we first introduced Synergy we hastily attached the HTGAM name to it...if I could change anything looking back, it might be the name of my soap! But again, everything just kind of happened so fast! So here we now are, writing, podcasting, creating wet shaving soft/hardware and running a forum...w/ help from Christian, Jeff, Arley & Sly! All are welcome here! Post your SOTD, product review, sexy CaD photos, discuss & converse, relax & unwind. The only rule that shall be enforced is..."don't be a dick". [i.e. trolling, creating drama, spamming, posting custom handled cartridge razors for sale, etc] We also don't care for blasting artisans here. If you have a problem with an artisan product or service contact them and work it out rather then post publicly...they work hard and want to help, don't risk hurting their reputation. Lastly, please NO RELIGION or POLITICS. We are big on tolerance & respect...a gent & ladies community...that knows how to party! So by all means, post something already! :) That said, if you find your email piling up w/ notifications you can opt to turn that feature off...here's how: http://www.wikihow.com/Turn-off-Emails-from-Google%2B If you have a question, concern or suggestion contact one or all of our MODs: Jeff, Arly, Christian, Sly or Douglas Smythe
 
There was a celebration in Spooky Town after today's great shave!

I have been shaving with a double edged razor and wanted to ask the fourm will I find any degree of difficulty with a straight razor I truly enjoy shaving and would want to know if my experience can be more pleasant . Comments welcome

#HumpBay with Anne Bonny
ATT S1 with Astra SP Blade on Jurgen Hempel Ti handle
The Executioner Skull Brush by +Brent Jacobson with Ubersoft knot
Dr. Jon's Anne Bonny Combo

Another excellent shave tonight with the wee lass Anne Bonny. If I had to pick a daily driver for the rest of my life I think I'd be hard pressed to choose between the ATT S1 and the Wolfman. I may have to give the nod to the ATT just on the premise that it's slightly less agressive and gives me the best neck shaves I've never had.

Enjoy your #HumpBay everyone.
