    Monday OCtober 7

    Hitting cleanup, one of the pride of my collection, Gillette British Aristocrat #15.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - MWF
    Brush - Rubberset 200-4
    Blade - Feather HI SS (6)
    Razor - 1938 Gillette British Aristocrat #15
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Baum.BE A/S balm

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    Had to take a few days off from shaving - surgery on my left hand on Friday and had some pain issues over the weekend so didn't want to risk it. My 4th OCtober shave is with one of my favorite razors period; a 1938 Gillette British Aristocrat #15. The shave was so smooth, the razor feels so solid and has good heft. There was a little bit of blade feel (which I like) but not overly aggressive. My Monday soap was MWF and that is a very good soap - I just wish I had more. The Rubberset 200-4 brush is a little floppy for my taste but still did a good job. Post shave, the alum reported very little - one little weeper - which I think backs up how good the razor and shave were. The shave was BBS on 2 passes with no follow-up needed.

    I'm not sure I'll shave Tuesday, may wait an extra day so I can look through my razors to see which one is next AND use MWF again (as if I need an excuse).

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.
