Wednesday

Prep: Hot Shower
Soap: Stirling Scots Pine
Razor: ’66 Gillette Slim
Blade: Personna Med Prep (3)
Brush: Omega 6192 Badger
Aftershave: Krampert’s Bay Rum

WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angle for my beard a bit)


7th shave with the Gillette Slim. I finally worked my way up to “9” today. The Personna Med Prep and the Slim went easy on me. I used my trusted Stirling Scots Pine to ensure a good slick, cushioned lather. I had the best shave I have had to date with a DE. No nicks or burn today. I finished up with Krampert’s Bay Rum. My face feels great!

Bob


I survived “9” today.

Thursday

Prep: Hot Shower
Soap: Palmolive Stick
Razor: ’66 Gillette Slim
Blade: Personna Med Prep (4)
Brush: Omega 6192 Badger
Aftershave: “Osage Brisk”

WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angle for my beard a bit)

8th shave with the Gillette Slim. I dropped it back down to “4” to compare it with “9”. I pulled out my Palmolive Stick for a change of pace today. The Med Prep is still smooth as glass. I got a DFS, just not quite as close.. I can definitely tell the difference between “4” and “9” on the Slim when shaving with it. I will probably bump it back up a bit, even though the shave was excellent. I finished with a blast of “Osage Brisk” to give me a final wake up!
