Vulfix 2233
Classic Shaving lavender soap
Merkur HD
Derby blade[1]
Witch hazel
C&E Sienna ASB[2]

[1] As stated yesterday, I am giving my face a rest from the Feather blades.

[2] Sienna is my go-to guy on the weekend, because the wife absolutely loves it. My sample is getting low, so I'm going to have to go to buy the full-size bottle soon.

Another Wool Fat day....and why not!

The more I wear Special 127, the more it grows on me. The dry down is superb!

the end of the 1805 tube. A sad, yet hopeful, moment.

I get Mexican Cokes sometimes from the coffee shop here at work. Amazing the difference in flavor!

Sunday night was my usual, with one important difference:
Infusium conditioner
Hot towel
Proraso lathered with Made-Rite badger
'62 FatBoy with Israeli Personna blade - 3 passes plus T&C
Hot rinse, cold rinse, CHL

This was my best shave to date, but I'm not sure what deserves the credit. The blade is my obvious first choice. (Got my sampler over the weekend. Thanks, letterk!) But I also lathered with a lot more water, and I slowed down a lot on the shave itself.

Combination of an improved tool and improved technique, I guess. And so I soldier on!
