It was bound to happen! On route to the Houston Space City Meet Up I was inspired during the flight to redesign all the CK Labels...when the muse hits, no matter where, I always succumb. By the end of my return flight back to Phoenix the deed was done. Hope you dig them as much as we do! Shave On!

Clubman Day!!
I received this gift pack from Clubman's the other day. Now I'm not a big fan of tubed shave creams. I prefer artisan stuff but this was a pleasant surprise. I only used the shave cream and beard conditioner and what a great feel it was.  The str8 just glided and the DE finished up the sloppy stuff I left.  Again, I was very surprised, ya gotta try this stuff.  Beard Balm and Tattoo oil set aside.  Mystery Brush not pictured, I don't know, it's a mystery.
Besides Clubman's
Razor 1    ZY  Stainless straight
Razor 2     Muhle  R89 TTO Grande w/Astra 2 blade
AS               Clubman' LIME of course.
KEEP SHAVING, MY FRIENDS!!

SOTD + Dual Review
Here today is a review a VERY unique shave cream and aftershave from Crown King.
- BumpPro shave cream is actually meant for black dudes to curtail razor bumps that too many unfortunately suffer from. No need for a brush and no lather just a thick cream you slather on your face for a smooth shave. I have to say the cream did a great job in providing that slickness we all search for in a quality soap. That fact there is no lather threw me off but it made up for in a good shave. I will say that around the mustache area it was a little gritty (perhaps it was my blade) feeling. The cream is a little more messy because it's creamy and slick when you apply with your hands. Using a brush there's less product on your hands. In all I give BumpPro a thumbs up!
- Onto my favorite part of the SOTD is this awesome Cumber AS from Crown King. Had no idea what to expect from this one. After all it's a vegetable inspired AS! After my shave I applied a generous amount to my skin and at firs the alcohol didn't punch me in the face. It felt good on the skin and within a few seconds I felt the tingling burn from the Cucumber AS. Another thumbs up!

Funny you say that, I was thinking the same when I was done this morning. BumpPro is some good stuff.

Nice!
This morning's shave was great. Reef Point Soaps are excellent and I went with their Fougere' Santal scent this morning and I decided to pair it with Brut aftershave splash: The doc did great, but it's definitely time ...

When I won a puck of Jeeves Conservatory at the Riverside Meetup, I knew I wanted a nice container for it. So I turned my first bowl on the new lathe (Got the block of wood in a grab bag, so not sure what kind it is). This was a great way to start a Friday!

Also and more important, HAPPY B-DAY MAT!!!! Hope you get your Razor! Have a GREAT DAY! シ

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

W&B 6/8
CK Champagne (thanks again Dave)
Skunkworks Synthetic (tuxedo knot)
Myrsol finish
Drygulch Leatherworks Strop

This shave was epic. The Crown King formula continues to impress me each time I lather it up. Dense, yet creamy and slick. It set the stage for my W&B to deliver a BBS result. What a great start to the weekend. Be safe gents.

+Douglas Smythe​​​...you need to acquire these knots. They fit perfect in the switchback blank ferrule.
