Wednesday AM 09-26-2012

Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Georgetown G4 scuttle
Rooney 1/1 Finest (22m/49mm)
Penhaligon's Endymion shaving cream
Feather AS
Wilkinson Sword (cryogenically tempered) (6)
Armani Code aftershave balm

A great shave. The Rooney is the typical virtually perfect blend of backbone and soft tips, and the Endymion makes wonderful lather, with top-notch cushion and glide. The hair of this brush is even softer than that of my other Finests. The blade continues to cut noisily but smoothly. I didn't notice the noise when I started using it, but maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

Thursday AM 09-27-2012

Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Becker scuttle
Rooney Ebony 3/2 Finest (24/54)
Penhaligon's Endymion shaving cream
Feather AS
Wilkinson Sword (cryogenically tempered) (7)
Armani Code aftershave balm

Another great shave. This Rooney is just a wonderful as my other Finests, and possibly the most beautiful. The blade, while still sharp and cutting well, feels somewhat less smooth now, not sliding over my skin as easily.
