Sunday AM
PRE: QED Red French Clay Soap
SOAP: D R Harris Arlington
BRUSH: QED Saville Row 22mm Silvertip
RAZOR: GEM G Bar with GEM PTFE SS Blade (1)
POST; Alum deo stick as astringent
Clubman A/S applied to face and hair
Clinique Skin Supplies for Men Post Shave Healer
Almay Unscented AP-Deodorant
Mystic Waters Hair Oil
The Arlington and SR brush easily generated far more lather than the 2 1/2 passes
required. And it dawned on me my GEM SS blades really don't want to give me more
than 4-5 shaves and they let me know it fairly clearly... today's shave with a new blade
was effortless and close; one tiny nick and little irritation, but definitely DFS+, even
along the usually difficult jawline and chin. If I never get any better than this, how
could I possibly complain?
Enjoying wet shaving, again.

A night shave?

• Razor: Cobra Classic
• Blade: Feather Professional (7)
• Brush: Rudy Vey Alibaba Black Fibre
• Soap: Cella
• AS: Krampert's Finest LE -- 80 Below


The Cobra slithered silently out of its jar to effortlessly remove 2.5 days of growth. There was some blood but that is due to trying some new charming techniques that didn't go over well. My morning shaves are usually better because I stick with what works. On my rare night shaves with my brain more alert I try changing things up and it doesn't always work out; like tonight. Still, the end result after a few extra splashes of cold water, an ice cube rub, & some 80 Below Krampert's Finest was superb.

Make it a great week y'all.
