    Tuesday NOvember 26

    No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. No repeats so far except for scuttle, blades, and alum. Up today, my 1948 British Aristocrat #21.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - Haslinger Schafmilch
    Brush - Brad Sears
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (9)
    Razor - Gillette British Aristocrat #21 (1948)
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Floid A/S balm

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    Needed a good easy shave today as my face still hurt a bit from my shave yesterday. The Schafmilch soap was the perfect soap for my situation - extra slick, moisturizing and I made sure not to goof up on the lather today. A 2 pass shave, WTG and XTG, with the #21 and I couldn't tell that yesterday's shave was a dud. This is a really good soap. The alum was a little vocal on my neck area but that was it. I thought the A/S balm would have a stronger scent that it does.

    Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.

    I've been taking a break from using straight razors due to travel. I may stick with blade holders for a while longer. Nice vintage razors all. :)
