SOTD - June 2020
#1
Tomorrow, I will be breaking out my AutoStrop VB1 to use the first five days of June. I like the AS razors, especially those that can use modified Gem blades.

I took the spine off the blade and nipped off the middle protrusion of the blade so it would fit in the AutoStrop holder.

Cold Water Rinse

Jayaruh #340 Badger
AutoStrop VB1
GEM Blue Star SE
CWR
Osage Rub

The Kiss My Face Cool Mint Moisture Shave Cream face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #340 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop VB1 with a GEM Blue Star SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

I had a great shave with my oldest SE. This Kampfe Star Lather catcher is a great razor and I love the way this bullet casing handle looks and feels on this razor. The casing is from the honor guard at my Grandfathers funeral. An unmentionable witch has a picture of a rifle on it was also involved. I figured it was a fitting combination.
