    RazoRock Baby Smooth
    Gillette Platinum (3)
    Simpson's CH2 Synthetic
    Sir Hare "Classic Barber"

    Another epic shave from the Baby Smooth. Using this razor is teaching my that I can do thing that I didn't think were previously possible. I am able to go ATG on my face and XTG on my neck, two passes that would result in some discomfort before. It also has taught me that I haven't had nearly as much angle control as I previously though and there is still a vast amount of improvement that can be made with my technique when it comes to using other razors. I've been getting the smoothest shaves I've ever has with this razor and it has reset the bar and has given me something to work toward with my other razors. Happy Monday everyone!

    Thank you Andrew. No such luck for the doctors today. Appointment in the morning. I just want a quick exam and then a CT of the Lower GI with and without contrast. At least that is what they have done every time in the past. I will just try to stay out of the ER the remainder of the day.

    Razor: Schick G8 Injector
    Blade: Chick (2)
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft 22
    Cream: KMF fragrance-free
    Post: Alum, Listerine, WH

    After using the Proline blades for the past few shaves, I thought I'd dial back to something milder and go with the G8 loaded with a Chick. Effortless, issueless BBS.

    This has definitely been an interesting month. For the most part, it's been an Injector focus and has been enlightening. Until recently, I never really got the Injector excitement that others have. That was, at least, until I got to try Twin blades in a Schick adjustable and Chick blades in an E2. The Proline B blades also make for an exciting experience. I'm not ready to get rid of my DE's, but I will admit that I don't hear them calling as loudly.

    SharptoothC I bite..........

    Last night I got in my last shavette shave of the month. Between a vacation travel day, a youth lock-in, and a recovery sleep day, shaving took a back seat for three days. So I had a considerable amount of stubble to mow down last night. My head had a week's worth of growth as I passed on head shaving over vacation.

    Razor: CJB Kamisori with a new Feather Pro blade
    Brush: Omega 10049 boar
    Soap: Stirling Glacial MITA
    Aftercare: Dickenson's witch hazel, Osage Rub
    Head shave: Schick Krona

    Glacial MITA has become my favorite of the Glacial soaps. Such a great scent and feel. The CJB and Feather Pro mowed down the beard with a bloodless vengeance. I could have walked off with one pass and a very presentable shave, but went for a second pass just for the joy of it. The Schick is a comfortable head shaver and handled the extra growth very capably. For August I'll be focusing primarily on boar brushes (Omega 10049 and Stirling Boar which is due in today) and my Gillette adjustables on setting Neal. I'm enjoying more aggressive razors of late, so I'll be comparing the Fatboy, Slim and Black Beauty wide open.
