The heavy wet snow flakes falling this morning here in the province can't decide between wearing a fur coat or slipping on a swim suit for a dip. The weatherman predicts the swim suit will win later in the day. Either way, it's a lazy day.

Razor: Filarmonica 13 square point — one pass
Razor: Merkur Progress — two passes
Blade: Super Iridium on the third and the final tour
Brush: Semogue 2010 Owners Club in cherry wood handle
Soap: Le Collectioneur Lothantique on its retirement day
Scuttle: Moss
Lather bowl: Modified Ayars
Pre-shave: Castle Forbes
Balm: Trumper Coral Skin Food
Aftershave: Pashana
Music: Luscious jazz from Charlie Haden's recording "Nocturn"
Finisher: Sumatra coffee and the falling snow in Cinemascope

Tuesday morning:

Hot towel face prep
Vitos SIS w/Bay Rum scent added
Simpson Special best badger
GEM 1912 Jr
GEM SS ptfe blade (14 and canned)
Bay Rum

I felt the blade had turned the corner, so I canned it, but 14 shaves isn't too shabby.

Before I applied my handcrafted BR the shave was a DFS, afterward it could be called a BBS. It was still a DFS to me.

Edit: I hate it when I don't proofread and need to edit!

Becker scuttle
Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Simpson Beaufort 5 Pure brush
Czech & Speake No. 88 shaving soap

The soap, despite its hype, was just pretty good, but everything else was great.
