Thanks DS. No outdoor shower yet. :lol: :lol: The problem is I’m staying next to a crèche with a lot of curious children looking over my fence when their on top of the jungle gym. What I’m well planning for the future is to build a Japanese bathing house with bathing stool showers and a soaking tub outside our bedroom. I have two old wine barrels I want to convert into the soaking bath which I'm going to fit to a wood fire heater. Then at least one can use it in summer and winter... ;)

That might scare the neighbours... :shock:


Talking about out door showers, this is where I had my shower a week and a half ago when I was in the Midlands for a wedding it was a bit chilly!

When we were in Japan in 2015 we went to an Onsen in the village of Hakuba.

Was a really great experience,

Knot on this RR 400 feels identical to the L'occitane Plisson.

I did not have the best shave, as I skipped giving my whiskers a soak prior to lather and shave. The result was that everything felt harsh. Second time I've done this, it makes the blade feel blunt, the soap feel poor.

Shower or face cloth soak is essential for me. Image

Classic shave indeed Riaan. The Pinaud Clubman has such a superb range of shaving products and what better than using all of them together in one shave. :D

Superb combination this morning DS. The Aqua Brava and a proper synthetic brush are still on my bucket list... :drool: This morning on the news it was said that only 20% of South Africans are in possession of a will. Now, if you're one of those dudes and still need to compile or amend your will please remember me when you struggle to decide to whom to pass on that awesome brush... :twisted:

This reminds me of a classic old school shave. Beautiful work done with the photo.
