The only variation in today's SOTD from the usual was the blade. The last one was discarded after 17 shaves due to a noticeable tugging.

Wednesday AM 2018-07-11

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 3/3 Ivory Finest (26/60)
Mohawk Brush Company shaving soap (tallow)
Charcoal Goods Brass Level 1/Triad Aristocrat Brass
Personna Super Stainless (3)
Yardley English Lavender aftershave (vintage)

The Mohawk soap, which has lost all its fragrance, made moderately rich and slick lather, good but not great. The puck is quite narrow, and it bounced around in the bottom of the mug, so I ended up holding it in my hand to load the brush.

Thursday

Brush: Simpson Duke 3 Best
Soap: The Yeti
Razor: '46-47 Aristocrat
Blade: Astra SP

I don't have a picture of today's SOTD, due to the fact that I changed two of my components this morning: the soap and the brush.
