    Schick I2 razor
    Schick blade
    Shave Revolution synthetic brush
    Morning TOST SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Pinaud Citrus Musk cologne

    Right dandy shave to start the week with. The Morning TOST SS has been a bugger for me to figure out lathering but today was pretty good. So my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    SOTD Stirling SEptember 16th

    Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    RazoRock ECO
    Crown Super Stainless
    WWB Talleyrand (26mm, Frigate Class)
    Stirling Deep Blue Sea soap and AS

    Half way through the month and I finally got in my first SE shave. The RazoRock ECO doesn't use a typical SE blade though, instead is uses ½ of a DE blade. The head geometry of the ECO makes it's feel like a traditional SE in use, however. I was able to shave with a very shallow angle with the ECO. Additionally head of the razor does not introduce any bend to the blade instead it is clamped flat in the head. Despite this, and having some significant blade reveal, I didn't notice any chatter and the blade felt quite stiff, much like a traditional SE. The Crown blade struggled a little bit on the first past with my heavy weekend growth but after that was quite smooth and after three passes the baby was in the house! My face felt really good after this shave. Being able to shave at such a shallow angle really keeps any irritation at bay. I finished off with a healthy splash of the DBS AS and I'm feeling and smelling like a million bucks on this fine Monday morning. Have a great day my friends!

    I should have known. I forgot to touch this one up. I looked back, and it gave me issues, in the past. It is definitely in the touch-up pile now. I had a so-so shave, that left me with a DFS, but not what I like for smoothness, on the first pass. Silky smooth 2nd pass, ATG.

    Stirling SEptember!!!

    September 16

    Razor - Gem Micromatic Open Comb
    Blade - CVS Carbon SE
    Soap - Stirling Black Ice
    Brush - Wolf Whiskers Custom Silvertip
    Post - Alum

    It's Menthol Monday! Soap of the day is Stirling Black Ice, the soap you want to eat (if you like black licorice). Great menthol kick on this one with that awesome scent and the Wolf Whiskers badger brush had no issues at all. Second day on the OCMM and it turned from the smooth and highly efficient tool to the beast today. Not really the razor's fault, though. I didn't set the blade in right and ended up with a scrape and a cut on my right jawline on the second stroke. I felt the roughness on the first stroke but just tried to adjust angle on the second. With the blade on top of the corner guards instead of in them - you don't get a smooth shave. Fixed it and completed two full passes and some touch up for a very nice high level DFS. Good enough.

    Still in the 90's around here. August in September. That's ok. Makes Menthol Monday that much more appropriate. Have a great Tuesday!!

    Hey Paul! I believe there may be some bentinite clay at the end of ingredients but is not enough to negatively effect the shave.

    Wet The Face Autumn for todays soap of choice.

    Love the scent of this one, it is a spicy apple cinnamon scent but is very well done and different from most other scents of this type.

    Performance is excellent making this one of the "Underrated" artisans that rarely gets mentioned on the fourms. Whipped up a thick lather that provided plenty of protection. Managed a DFS with no irritation. Finished off with stirling Haverford.

    Hope everyone had a great shave!
