-- Tuesday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankerazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon Bulldog handle
Blade: Perma-Sharp Super (4)
Brush: Semogue Owners' Club 2012 Special Edition (mixed hair)
Soap: QCS Forgere
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant stick and Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Shave number 4 with SOC 2012 SE. Just loving this thing. The funk is almost gone and is way lower in volume than soap smell. Next shave will probably be no funk at all. I am finishing up some soaps that are at the end as this brush just loads them to the end. The QCS was a leftover from some sample and it's pretty much gone. I will mix the remnants into something else for next shave as there is not enough left for a full shave with SOC SE. Today's shave was excellent.

What a great blade. It turns even a klutzy razor like the Tech into a smooth shaver.
