    Today’s shave

    New to me 46-47 Aristocrat
    What the puck lime soap
    Voskhod blade
    Buffalo restored brush
    Witch hazel


    This razor was a great buy. Several dawn baths and toothpaste scrubs I tried it out. Kind of hard to open. Doors a little lazy. Missing an end cap and case is pretty rough. But she shaves well! Think she’s a keeper!

    It was a pretty wild shave. If that is what shaving with a straight is like, I can see how that could be addictive. I'll admit, without hesitation that my neck, around the swirls and my "wrinkle"running the width of my neck made me nervous. Rightfully so too. You can feel ever bit of that blade. If you ride the cap(not my normal practice) you don't get any real feel for the blade. It's an "All or Nothing" experience.
    This razor doesn't get to make the Gillette's Finest thread, but it's staying in the bathroom. What a great way to shape your beard too! There wasn't any real remnant of Shaving Cream lather either, even with face lathering. I doubt I'm the first to try something like this, but I hope I am not the last either!
