    You will find that the more proficient you become with straight razor shaving, the more relaxing and enjoyable it is. I started straight shaving with my Dovo shavette in the middle of Oct. 2018. After 16 shavette shaves, I plumged into traditional straight razor shaving and I am glad I did. Presently, I own 13 straights, 1 shavette and 7 safeties in my collection. I wasn't expecting to have that many razors in one year. Lol! It's all good with me. Anyway, Evan, glad you are part of 30DC and looking forward to your straight shaves.

    Stirling SEptember!!!

    September 30

    Razor - Gem Micromatic OCMM
    Blade - CVS Carbon
    Soap - Stirling Iced Coffee
    Brush - 30DC Meet Up LE
    Post - Alum

    Final shave of Stirling SEptember 2019!! Gonna stay with the OCMM and rotate out to the meet up brush along with Stirling Iced Coffee for Menthol Monday! Fantastic scent, fantastic lather from the brush, and a smooth fantastic finish with the razor. It's been a fun month of SE razors as always and piling on the Stirling only made it that much better! Thanks to everyone who made this another huge recordbreaker!! I'll have totals the next day or two, but in the meantime let's take it on out to OCtober! See you there!

    Stirling Single Edge September

    Stirling Blood on Steel SS
    Stirling Tuxedo Synthetic
    Focus Dynamic R48 1 /2 DE Pivoting Single Edge Razor
    Feather on 1
    Stirling Blood on Steel (Tsuka) AS

    To finish up the month my favorites came out. This is "the Wedding package"

    Blood on Steel is at the top of the Max Headroom List of Most Glorious Stanks.

    The tuxedo is my most used brush. Works great. I thought I saw that Rod was introducing one of the longer handles with this knot. Yup, I'm in.

    While the Blue Ming was hanging around, I sent him packing today cause I was in a hurry. The truth is... soaps do not have to be bloomed. Anybody who says they do..... is as ridiculous as someone who says it is wrong. I just happen to enjoy doing as I please. Great lather, just over to the sloshy side, the way I like.

    Went with the Focus Dynamic R48 1/2 DE Single Edge Razor cause I was in a hurry. This tool is highly maligned because it is a technical mechanical razor that forces you to abandon traditional shaving techniques and rely on design. Easy to use, just different. Only razor I have that I always 'chase the baby' and never regret it.

    Finished close and irritation free. Hit the mug with that wonderful aftershave and out the door.

    Shave on, shave free.
