01 April 2013

Pre: Proraso Crema Pre Barba
Razor 1: CJB + Feather Professional (3)
Razor 2: Rhodium GEM OCMM
Brush: Elite7 Scarlett + WSP HMW 23/50
Soap: Antica Barbieria Colla Bitter Almond
AS: Krampert's Finest Acadian Spice Bay Rum -- Hip Flask

Much better with the CJB kamisori style disposable straight. Completed a full WTG pass with no problems. Also completed the left side XTG well. Cut myself trying to do the right side XTG with my dominant left hand. I very well may just need to be ambidextrous to get this down. Overall I was very pleased with how much better I did on this time out. The OCMM easily cleaned up the right side and touchups.

Chris, couple of comments/questions: is the bay rum a recent addition to the den? How do you like it?

Also, how much EO are you adding to your Valobra stucks?

Tim
