End of an Era:

Well today's shave didn't go to well for me at all do to what you see below. It's PAA's "The Beach" with the old RazoRock label and old 1.5 formula. The last shave of a tin is always the worst for some reason, plus my vintage razor doesn't have enough weight behind it for my barbed wire type of beard. I also called it quits with "Shave the Man" Face Book group. One of my friends also cut himself when he tried to rush his shave today and he normally puts up a video on a daily basis, but couldn't today because he had too much to do. I had 2 members of that group talk down to me like a rookie which I promptly stopped. You don't tell someone how to wet shave after they've been doing it for nearly 2 years and you DON'T tell someone how to use straight razors after they've been using them for 70+ days. They even went as far as to tell me to watch my friend's videos when I've been subscribed to his YouTube channel since day 1 and I've also got 8 other channel subscriptions to go with it. That FB group was no longer fun, and the fact that I had 2 members try to tell me how to shave and talk down to me as if I was new, when it's obvious that I'm NOT new to the hobby at all and the fact that I'm getting into honing my own straight razors pretty much proves my point. There's no need to stay somewhere when it's no longer fun:

This old 1.5 formula was good, but it's no where near as good as what they have available now in my humble opinion in terms of slickness and cushioning ability. I definitely like the current 2.5 formula better than the old formula. The tin has been placed in storage since it's now a collector's item and no longer available with this specific label.
