-- Monday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankenrazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon bulldog handle
Blade: Perma-Sharp Super (5)
Brush: Semogue Owners Club 2012 SE mixed hair
Soap: Mike's Natural Vetiver
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze (used as brush scuttle)
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Took an extra day to let my skin recover after the past two shaves, which were a little irritating. Today was great. Perma-Sharp Super on the 5th shave performed great. I will push it to shave 6 and see what happens. Normally I discard the blade after 4 shaves, some blades 3, but this blade is going strong, so why not?

Mike's Vetiver is not my kind of scent, but Mike's soap is awesome and the scent is light, so I can definitely go through this sample, but will not be buying this particular scent. There are about 3 or 4 scents of Mike's that I really do want, though
