    This is the third shave of my shavette focus. I performed two passes with quite a bit more ATG action and touch ups. Other than a couple of small sit down errors, it was a nice shave. The Soap Commander lather was slick and abundant. I am finally getting the hang of using a synthetic brush. The alum was fairly quiet. Today is no scent Monday (except for the soap), since I'm off to see my kids at the hospital.

    I had one little nick on a finger tip due to inattention. Definitely my fault here and a good reminder to take extra care with the shavette.

    I hope everyone has a safe New Year's Eve and a Happy New Year!

    Thanks Fuzzy. Robert Becker made these scuttles. I have three of them. I gave away the purple one. He most recently sold on eBay, but I'm not sure if he's still in business.
