    Adjustable Arko August 2017
    Day 1

    IMG_1419.JPG
    After a bit of a rough newbie experience yesterday (bit of lingering irritation), it was awesome to shave my way again. Cold water, minimal prep and Arko for the win. I laid down today as my baseline....near BBS on two. Will shoot for the Grail with a Day three Derby tomorrow. Really gonna focus on stretches and precise strokes, and the Grail will likely show up! Other than that...all is quiet in Colorado.

    Have a great evening!
    :)

    Second shave of the day as I have to be at work by 4:30am tomorrow for one of my busiest days of the year.

    Very nice shave with a great post shave face feel. It didn't take long, but I am enjoying the OCMM again.

    Enjoy your day.

    I am focus-less poor August. I am still using and maintaining my straights, but after many months, it has just become the way I shave, opposed to a project.

    I am still kicking around all sorts of things to try to work in, but with my work schedule so spastic, home today, traveling tomorrow, my shaves have become a day by day thing.

    But in the sake of camaraderie, and reverence to our dear leaders, I broke out my only adjustable set to Neal, the Arko, some drugstore A.S., and an Omega boar. I had a very nice shave.

    Now to figure out what to do for the rest of the month.

    Tuxedo knots are superb for shave sticks.
