Shave of the Day: Friday Morning, 27 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lahter
US Made Finest Grade Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Arko Men Extra Fresh Shaving Cream
Arko Men Ice Mint Aftershave Balm
Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic/ Aftershave

This was an excellent shave. I used cream, today, instead of soap, because I am dissatisfied, with the soap I have (Edwin Jagger). The cool weather inspired me to use sandalwood. Happy Weekend, Happy Friday, and, Happy Shaving!

Beginning tomorrow (if I shave tomorrow) my shave of the day setup will reflect an 80% change in the hardware and software. The only thing that remains the same is the Superior 70 after shave splash. Different razor, blade, soap, and brush. I'm looking forward to the change and will probably stick to this setup for the better part of a year. At least that's my plan.
