    Stirling SS and AS - Barbershop
    @jtspartan BRM w/TGN 28mm Silvertip
    Riga Razor 8/8
    Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements ASB - Star Jelly

    Same setup as yesterday....playing with mirror reflection on the Rigarazor and lens/camera perspective. Shot w/iPhone, small studio setup.

    Awesome bowl & face lathering fun as expected from Jason's handle loaded w/TGN knot and Stirling soap. Awesome Barbershop aroma, one of my favorites. 2.5 passes again today, near 'effortless' blade movement and growth removal. Light control for the blade weight and path, very low shaving angle, nearly negative pressure to only skim the soap/skin/hair line. Like driving a 4x4 dually....in a space meant for a Prius :happy102:. BBS- results, ever so slight of a rough patch on the lower right chin. Fun shave. Small film applied of PAA's Star Jelly followed with the Stirling Barbershop aftershave splash...ready for a Wednesday!

    Hope everyone reading has a Wonderful Wednesday!

    Fantastic shave and photo, Jim! I've thought about getting that Yaqi brush before. How is the knot in your opinion?
