    I had a nice shave session.
    I just enjoy using the Rockwell Model T v1 razor. I mainly use my safety razors for headshaves so they still get good use. Lol!
    I went back to the Stirling Barbershop soap and decided to use the JR 290 synthetic brush to whip the lather in a repurposed Stirling Sandalwood SS container. The lather was thin and creamy, but slick. There wasn't much soap left. In fact. I used up this 1oz sample. Would I buy a full tub of Stirling Barbershop? I would say definitely. Although I didn't get the aftershave, I would get it.

    Anyway, I did an error-free 2 pass shave without touchups for a near BBS shave. The alum feedback was a little more pronounced as compared to yesterday's shave. Mainly, I felt it on the neck. So. what else is new? Lol!
    I decided to change things up a bit and used the Stirling Glastonbury aftershave instead of my typical Barbershop aftershave. I felt that Glastonbury would be a good secondary backup because it complements this soaps scent. Besides, I need to kill this bottle of aftershave because I don't think that I would order that particular soap. Anyway, that's my story and I am sticking to it. Take care gents
