    Weds OCtober 16

    Birthday shave today, using 2 of my Gillette birthday F4 razors, a Fatboy and a Toggle. First pass was with the Fatboy set at 7 and I probably could have done 8 or 9. Second pass with the Toggle was set at 3.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - MWF (it's Weds)
    Brush - Paladin Vesuvius
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (2)
    Razor - Gillette 195 Adjustable (Fatboy) F4, Gillette Toggle F4
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Stirling Ramblin Man A/S, Stirling Ramblin Man EdT

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    First pass with the Fatboy at 7 was WTG and was DFS+. I could have increased the setting as this pass was very smooth with almost no blade feel. The second pass with the Toggle on 3 was XTG and again was a very smooth pass with no blade feel and also was an easy BBS. Both razors are very smooth shaving razors. The MWF lathered well and provided excellent lubrication and cushion for the shave. I had no nicks or anything close to a weeper but the alum barked a little on my neck area. I finished off with the Ramblin Man duo of A/S and EdT.

    Overall, a great shave. Tomorrow I'm back to my OC focus this month with a few more French and English razors that will be the razors for my next few shaves this week.

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.
