Shave of the Day: Friday Night, 13 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless Razor Blade
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Derby Menthol Shaving Cream
Wholly Kaw Dark Vetiver Shaving Tonic/Aftershave

This was a good way, to end the day, and, start the weekend. We, finally, had some cooler weather, this week. The interesting, and, complex blend of scents, in the shaving tonic, really capped off the evening, and, the week. It was a stressful day, today, with all the wind, and, cool weather, in the morning, followed by warmer temperatures, and, humidity, which gave way to chilly weather, in the evening. I would have been a few hours earlier, in posting this, but, was out of several things, and, needed to make, a second trip, to the store. This distracts from the sombre meaning, of the day. Two passes, and, some buffing, left me, with a DFS.

I finally realized that the number on the dice facing up is the number of blade uses! Won’t you need 3 or 4 dice for a Light Brigade? I can get 25 shaves from one.

Rick, thanks for discovering that. I used to think it was just a random or something, but finally gave up a couple of years ago. # of shaves on the specific blade - I'll have to try to remember that.
