    Thursday NOvember 7

    No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. Up today is a Gillette Fatboy Red Dot D1.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - Stirling Executive Man
    Brush - Jayaruh 327
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (2)
    Razor - Gillette Fatboy Red Dot D1
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Stirling Executive Man A/S, EdT

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    I did a two pass shave today, first pass on 9. I'm not used to using a Fatboy but I noticed audible feedback during the first pass - the razor/blade was singing to me. I don't remember this happening on my regular Fatboy. Anyway, the first pass, WTG, was excellent. I turned the dial down to 5 for the second pass, XTG, but this time no singing razor. The second pass was excellent as well, finishing BBS. The Executive Man soap provided very good lather though I had to watch how much water I added to prevent the lather from getting too watery. The alum was a little vocal again on one side of my neck but that was it. Finished up with the Executive Man A/S and then the EdT.

    Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.

    Had to pull the trigger on this razor, at first I posted it on the FaceBook Shave groups and asked them if it was a good find and they said it was a STEAL!!! Yeah... I bought it! Being as tho my birthday was yesterday I wanted to get myself something nice!!! 6E431833-5EDD-4AFC-B114-EFD033FA521B.png
