Today for the first time, I used Fine Fresh Vetiver soap. It's quite impressive. The lather is thick and rich. The post-lather hot water splash and touchup smoothing pass is as slick as anyone could expect.

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Stubby 3XL Ivory Finest (2 ring) (30/52)
Acqua di Parma Colonia soft shaving soap (v.1)
Gillette New LC/UFO U2
Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' (20)

Another excellent warm morning setup and shave, closer and smoother than any in the last week or so, even at the 20th shave with this blade. And it amazes me that I used to avoid open combs...

Penhaligon's Castile shaving cream (vintage)
Wolfman WR1-OC Brass/WRH2

Castile is one of my favorite fragrances, and the old cream is wonderful. The razor is quite heavy, but it certainly is efficient.

Today's Friday shave was delightful. The Torrey straight razor was incredibly smooth and sharp. The soap was tallow Fresh Vetiver from Fine. I did the full two lather pass followed by the hot water splash for smoothing and touch-up.

It was good to return to the Tabac soap this morning. It's not a hard triple milled soap like Fine Accoutrements, but there's no denying Tabac is among the very best!

Yesterday's shave (Friday of course) sported a newcomer to my razor category. It's the newly redesigned General by Colonial.

Today's Friday shave was #10 in a row using the New General. I'm still gathering data so I can give a proper review when the time is right. Oops, a slip of the keyboard --- did I say the shave was a 10? 8)
