    11/20/2019 - Williams Wednesday

    RazoRock 400 Noir Plissoft Synthetic Shaving Brush
    Timeless Shaving Bowl
    Williams Mug Soap
    Above the Tie – Atlas, R2 Plate
    Astra SP Blade
    Nivea Post Balm
    Pinaud Clubman Classic

    The Williams was feeling neglected this morning so it had to make an appearance. Williams is just a soap that works and is nothing special. I added a splash of Clubman to the lather while whipping it up and that added a nice little scent to the lather. No blooming necessary!

    Alum was quiet due to the excellent job from the ATT razor and I am really getting this thing dialed in. The baby was in the den this morning!

    Finished up with some Nivea post balm and the Clubman.

    I hope everyone has a great day! Take care.

    Friday NOvember 22

    No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. No repeats so far except for scuttle, blades, and alum. Up today, one of my Heljestrand lather catchers with a Heljestrand wedge blade.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - Barristers Reserve Cool
    Brush - ThatDarnRob 26mm
    Blade - CV Heljestrand Wedge (3)
    Razor - CV Heljestrand lather catcher
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Barristers Reserve Cool A/S

    Shave rating 4.5 of 5

    It was a tale of two passes. Didn't shave yesterday so shaving on 2 days growth. First pass WTG felt like I was pulling each whisker out. Thought I would have to stop and switch razors and blades. Finished the first pass and my face still felt like 60 grit sandpaper. I don't know why but decided to keep using razor and blade for 2nd pass. Relathered and did 2nd pass ATG and what a difference. This pass was smooth and everything was cut except my face. Finished the 2 passes DFS+. Maybe the blade could use a touch up on the 20k hone but it really shouldn't after 3 shaves. Anyway, love the scent of this soap and A/S but for some reason, I don't use it much. I thought the alum would be vocal but it was surprisingly silent. As noted, the A/S smells nice.

    Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.
