    I used the feather blade again today and it reminded me why feather was my favorite blade for a long time. The feather blade is nice and sharp as well as being gentle on my face, without causing an undue "gotcha". 3 passes and nice and smooth. Unfortunately, I am now down to my last feather blade, so I am undecided whether to use it tomorrow or to keep it for some special occasion. Only tomorrow will tell.

    4/27/2015 My Big Fat Tobacco Tuesday Shave!

    Prep: Hot shower with Nivea Face Wash with menthol, home made PSO
    Razor: Gillette Executive (3), Dubl Duck Goldedge straight razor
    Blade: Astra SP (5)
    Brush: Vie Long Horse Hair
    Soap: Tabac
    After: Home made ASB, Tabac after shave
    Cologne: Tabac EDC

    It was an almost Baby Butt Smooth 2 pass shave this morning. The Vie Long brush whipped up the Tabac into a wonderful lather. The Duck and the Exec did a spectacular job. The Tabac AS and the Tabac EDC were a fine finish to this great shave and they will have me smelling good all day.

    Have a blessed day!

    Second shave with the Pils today. Some more musings about its performance here

    Realized I have a lot of small sample packages lying around so decided I need to start going through them.
    Truefitt and Hill Ultimate Comfort ASB: Unscented, gave a rather good moisturizing feeling.
    Dr Harris' Windsor EdT: Great summer scent - citrusy and woodsy. I like it quite a bit.

    Razor: Pils 101NE
    Blade: Astra SP
    Brush: L'Occitane Plisson
    Soap: Irisch Moos cream
    ASB: Truefitt and Hill Ultimate Comfort
    EdT: Dr Harris' Windsor
