    Funny story, Evan! At least it all worked out in the end...

    Thank you, Andrew! I've read several accounts where guys claim they routinely get at least 20 shaves from one, and in some cases they get more. One way to find out...;)
    I'm not normally a "blade pusher", just for the sake of either cheapness or just doing it for the heck of it. Every so often, a blade seems like it wants to keep going. Awhile back, there was a Gillette Rubie that just kept going and going. I ended up with about 19 shaves on it before swapping it out. I still have one more of them. If it exhibits the same performance, they'll be purchased in bulk.

    Rating: 5 / 5

    Razor: Schick-Injector Type G
    Blade: Persona Injector
    Brush: Leo Frilot Custom NYR 26 mm Synthetic
    Lather: Stache Soap Works E Barber
    Aftershave: Floid Genuine
    Osage Rub
    Additional Care:
    Barbero Alum Block
    Thayer's Witch Hazel - Aloe Vera

    First use with the Type G razor. It delivered a wonderful shave. I did manage a minor weeper obtained on my third pass. Overall a great shave.

    I have another day of late summer/early fall chores in the yard. Most of the day will be to myself as the missus is heading to her mother’s and my son to his cousin’s for an overnight visit.

    This evening, a welcomed date night.
    Have a fabulous Sunday.

    Quite a good shave this morning. 0:35 at the loading dock, with Jayaruh brush in hand. Tips only into the soap(Razorock Lime Burst). As has been the case more often than not, as I was doing the first pass, I was thinking 'Boy, I'm gonna need that second pass.' And I did. No cuts/Knicks on pass 1, but a slight Knick on the 2nd. Actually, it was so slight that nothing showed from it, although I can't lie, I made a little reaction to it. I also left some astroturf on the East(right)side of Cactus Nation. I'll have to get some sort of strategy going for angling from the side of the neck to the middle. Nice finish with Stoylin Glacial Lime....I'll be "honest" with myself(and you fellas)and give the shave a Super Duper Excellent.

    Good morning, gents!
    I quess i'm going for an easy, simple shave nearly every time, but there is nothing wrong with that. I think i might buy a second puck of this soap at some point, it just works for me.
    The red tube is a moisturiser, my skin is starting to feel quite dry at this time of the year.

    Oh, and the covid-test was negative.

    Have a great day

    Interesting story Evan hence the importance of understanding the acronym “SWMBO”.

    Beautiful shave Keith. I have a sample size of the Drunken Goat. Not sure what it would entail to ship to Korea. Probably has about four shaves worth in it.
