Friday AM 2018-05-11

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 2/1 Ivory Finest (22/56)
Acqua di Parma Colonia shaving cream (original)
RazoRock Mamba/UFO Little Titan
Wilkinson Light Brigade (2)
Acqua di Genova 1853 aftershave

The AdP cream makes lather that is not quite as slick as that of the original soft soap, but it is still excellent. The Little Titan handle is a touch shorter than I like, but its light weight is perfect for me. And the aftershave has a wonderful Mediterranean fragrance and is a great match for the cream, which is especially fortunate because my skin does not tolerate AdP aftershaves.

Only 12 shaves off a P74? I get at least double that. You need to get a couple more dice John.

Sure, I could get more shaves per blade (and use more dice). But I have 200 of the P74s, as well as over 400 Light Brigades. At the rate I use them, that's 20 years of blades, and I just turned 70 years old. So I think I'm probably OK with my current use rate...

Muhle 23mm Synthetic brush
TOBS Lavender knockoff v. 1
Edwin Jagger Barley Chrome
Personna Med Prep shave #6
Uncologne aftershave splash

I've come to the conclusion that this soap is not hitting the target. Latherable, shaveable, pretty good scent, but there are some issues. I am going to rectify it this weekend.

Tim
