    Hot shower
    Proraso Pre/Post
    C&E Best Badger
    HBS Lavender/Spritz of Palmolive USA
    Slant/Gillette Bleue
    Alum block
    Makler AS
    Anherb conditioner
    D&G EDT

    The lather from the HBS soap wasn't as strong as I wanted, so I dumped a bit of the Palmolive cream in and got a superlather. Not the fault of the soap, but my lathering technique this morning.

    Overshaved with the Slant and paid for it with a slightly irritated neck. BBS, yes, but at a price.

    Rich -> is it any less/more moisturizing than the regular, as far as you can tell?

    It's the same. Maybe a touch more because I have not had to use oil on my shins the last two days. That might be the pine tar at work. The ones I've tried so far have the same basic qualities just different scents. The scents tend to be light and fade quick.

    After 4 days of shaving with it, the IP blade reached its limit today. The homemade a/s consists of grain-schnapps, allspice-seeds (=pimento; very similar to and even better than Bay seeds), glycerin and menthol. A very soothing A/S even if I overdid it a tad with the menthol - I think the stuff's thrice as cooling as the Spanish Floid - but me likes it this way :D ::

    Only one minor nick. Second shave with my straigh..was happy...still not sure the blade is as sharp as it could be since i think i screwed it up with my thumbnail test after i got it honed....

    Great stuff!!

    Sweet bro. Sounds like you're coming along quite well with the straight shaving. Impressive! I'm curious -- what do you look for (or attempt to do) with the thumbnail test?

    Thumbnail test so i had found out is a way to test to see if the blade is sharp during honing. There are many ways to check for sharpness. I found out that if you test with the nail after a honing, you basically ruined the sharpening you just did.
