    Chiseled Face Natural Pre-Shave Gel
    ATT Calypso S1 Slant / Astra‌ ‌Superior Platinum
    WCS Two-Tone Tall 26mm Synthetic BOSS Knot
    Chiseled Face Sherlock Shaving Soap

    Chiseled Face Sherlock Aftershave Splash
    On its first outing, the ATT aluminum slant felt a bit more aggressive than my Fine aluminum slant. I also detected some drag compared
    to the Fine slant, which is polished. Fortunately the West Coast brush and Chiseled Face Sherlock soap produced a good slick lather,
    so the end result was a two-pass BBS (WTG and ATG). But I still need a few more shaves with the ATT to really get it dialed in.

    Last night it rained and now the day is as gray as I like.

    Many years ago, today was already a month and a half I was going to school.
    I always hated it enthusiastically: huddled together with little screaming beings, all wearing black aprons and a stiff white collar, locked down for hours listening to things that could have been interesting if they hadn't been exposed in such a boring way.

    And I still remember when, after a while, I realized that I had been sentenced to forced labor; I was 6 years old and I would have had to go to school until at least 18: 300% of my life until then.
    As if a 30-year-old man was forced to do something until the age of 90: it would bewilder anyone.

    So I went to see to my mother in the kitchen to ask her the question that puzzled me. She was always happy when she thought I was looking for solutions...

    Obviously I do not remember the words of a 6 year-old child, but I remember perfectly the consecutio of my thought:
    -Mom -I told her- I will have to go to school until I'll be 18 -
    -Yes dear, of course-
    -And this is to let me have a better job...-
    -Yes dear...-
    -So that I can earn more money to eat, sleep (I meant a house), rest (I meant vacations) to be able to go back to work to eat, sleep and rest to go back to work...-
    -My mother was very happy for my brilliant examination of my condition.
    -It all seems very stupid to me - I ended, turning around and going back to my room, but not before having seen bewilderment in her eyes and her jaw go down by what I estimate today was about a quarter of an inch.

    After 68 years I think exactly the same way...

    So I continue in this useless loop, with the awareness of its uselessness, but the contentment of having immersed myself in excellent scents.

    PAA Starling SE
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Osage Rub

    The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #419 Two Band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the PAA Starling SE razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
