Monday AM 2018-08-20

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Emillion 2 Tiger Stripe Finest (26/54)
PAA Cavendish shaving soap
RazoRock Mamba
Wilkinson Light Brigade (3)
Cigar Aficionado aftershave

The Mamba handle is slippery when wet, allowing it to spin on its axis. I much prefer the head with other handles.

Today's change from the routine was the addition of Eufros (Jabonman) Mentholated soap. It used to be unscented. I added a copious portion of menthol.

Tuesday AM 2018-08-21

Thrift store mug
Rooney Emillion 2 Porcelain-Jade Finest (26/54)
Floris No. 89 shaving soap (tallow)
Paradigm II Titanium
Wilkinson Light Brigade (4)
Floris No. 89 aftershave (vintage)

As close to a perfect shave as I'll ever have, with my favorite software and the Paradigm, which even on first use was marvelous. My only complaint about the razor, which applies also to the Wolfman, is that with the top quality vintage blades it makes shaving too effortless. With very little audible feedback or skin sense of the blade, it would be easy to become complacent and careless.

Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet shaving soap (tallow)
Delta Echo Feather AS-D2/Triad Blue Aristocrat Titanium

The Blenheim Bouquet gets nowhere near the fame that English Fern does. But the lather this vintage soap makes is every bit as good as that of its more renowned sibling.
