Monday Dec 12
Brush: hand turned pecan handle with tgn Silvertip knot
Soap/Creme: Arko
Razor:Gillette Old with a final cleanup pass from a Merkur slant
Blade: Polsilver (3)& Rapira SS(in the slant)
Pre: shower+ glycerin soap
Post: alum followed by Masters Lilac Vegetal
Hair Groom: Gables Brillintine pomade
Result: Polsilvers are great blades, but my beard chews them up (like almost every other blade) in about 2 shaves. Shave #3 with it was rough, irritating, and tugged a lot (almost like I was using a Dorco!). I got pretty smooth, but it was a chore. I polished up a bit with my slant, partly to be sure it was the blade being dull and not the lather being bad (it was indeed the blade, the lather was great.) Since it was extra rough, I took out my alum block, which helped a great deal. I don't use it often, but I am always glad to have it when I need it.

Monday AM:

Spieck stick
Semogue 1438 Boar
GEM SS ptfe (15)
Bay Rum

1/2 a month with the same blade! 2 pass BBS + touchups. No nicks, cuts, weepers, tugging, pulling. The less than optimal blade does show itself during the shave, it's just not as smooth a shave, but it's like the Energizer rabbit.
