    Woke up to a relatively overcast morning on this final day of OC October. The 16 oz 316L SS Rearden Razor Tuxedo Synth built the two kinds of MWF lathers I like for my shaves. I shaved this morning with the razor that launched me into straight shaving, my Dovo Special 5/8. The razor has a fine edge that I’ve maintained on my Naniwa 12k. I gave it a few laps on the Swaty Barber’s hone this morning and had a very pleasant two and a half mug pass shave that left me quite smooth. The following two pass ATG dome shave with the Gillette New LC checked all the boxes and left me velveteen smooth from shoulders to noggin for a fitting capstone shave of the month.

    RAZOR: Dovo Special 5/8 (Mug), Gillette New LC (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather DE
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: Rearden Razor 316L SS Tuxedo Synth
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Cremo Cooling Post Shave Balm.

    The last day of OCtober finishes off 31 days with 31 different open comb razors. That is a first for me. It was a fun 31 days. Happy Reformation Day, all.

    The Eufros Sandalo Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #41 2-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide Lather Catcher Razor with a Henckels Wedge gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    A very fine shave with one of my favorite razors. I dialed it back just a touch for the finish but I probably didn't have to.

    Colder fall weather is setting in where I live so I'm reaching for the fruity scents less often. I highly recommend Fine's Green Vetiver as something earthy to try if you haven't already.

    Have a great week, fellow shavers!

    Thank you Paul. I was a little nervous using the Weck for the first time, but it was outstanding. I really enjoyed it and the Kismet blades felt great. I will need to use them more in the future for sure. Have a great Sunday. Tonight could be the final game of the series. Enjoy.

    It tells me how many shaves I have on each razor,
    3 shaves and the blade is history. [​IMG]

    Thank you Steve! You too! A first inning grand slam and the Astros have battled back to tie it up. It’s shaping up to be a great game!
