    Mistake Of The Day

    I was so impressed with the results I got last week with my Gillette Slim that I dug up… gasp… my other adjustable: the Vision 2000. That’s official, I hate Merkur.

    I did not even finish the first pass and grabbed my 1968 Wilkinson. All went fairly well until the pass ATG on the most problematic moustache area. That’s official: I prefer the Gillette Slim. However, the Wilkinson will remain on the stand. It’s just too beautiful.

    The Feather AC was reliable as always. Damn, I want the non-folding one.

    Saturday AM

    Hot shower
    B&B Finest Ebony
    '71 Black Handle Slim Adjustable w/ Derby Extra blade (Day 4)
    AOS Sandalwood cream
    Warm water rinse
    Cold water rinse
    Aqua Velva A/S splash :drool
    Cold water Rinse
    QED DaVinci Water
    AOS Sandalwood A/S balm
    AOS Sandalwood EdT

    Got a '71 Gillette Adjustable in a trade... for me, performs just like my '66 Slim Adjustable (3/5/7 for 3 passes). But I like the black handle better. ;)

    Still can't get used to how much my B&B finest repels water. Rinse it off and give it a single shake, and it immediately blooms to full area, looking as dry as if it was sitting out for a week. Really strange.
