Finished off 30 great shaves with the Kai blade today. The General gets a month off if all goes according to plan. I'm hoping to shave every day of July with one of 15 of my favorite straight razors. I'm eager to see how tomorrow goes.

So far so good with the daily straight razors. After 6 consecutive days, considering the stress a straight razor places on skin that's not used to it, I used the Noxzema/Kai twin blade disposable this morning.

Still giving the face a break, this morning's razor was the Noxzema/Kai twin blade disposable.
I've got 9 more straight razors I want to use this month, so there's no rush about the daily routine.
Why a disposable? I needed something not known for smooth and close shaves.
The disposables reduce the stubble while remaining comfortable on the skin.
