I've been wanting to try that as well. Sandalwood and Eton College both seem to be highly rated (for creams anyway). Just had a great shave today with a Bowdins Wedge 4/8 full wedge. It was my first shave with it and my first shave with a full wedge at all. Thoroughly enjoyable! 4/8 is too small for my tastes, but I'm really liking the full wedge...time to find a bigger one! :)

CHRIS <> YUP! :mrgreen: I think it was you I had said that to earlier... the full wedge is so night & day it's ridiculous. I'm just getting to a point know after about 6 months where I can barely tolerate a full hollow.

Bear in mind though, this thread is about the Shave of the Day... WHERE'S YOUR PICS.?!

This weekend has been full of shaves, 3 days in a row. I have been experimenting with my Nakayama Kiita Kan lvl5 as a finish and now found a method to stick with.
