This week, remembering the original Woodstock festival that happened this week in 1969, I'm listening to some of its music while shaving. Today it is Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Wednesday AM 2018-08-15

Thrift store mug
Rooney Stubby 3 Porcelain Finest (26/54)
Williams Rose shaving soap (vintage)/Bulgarian Rose EdP
Wolfman WR1-OC/Darwin
Personna 74 Tungsten (13)
Lagerfeld Classic aftershave (vintage)
Floris Rose Geranium EdT (vintage)

The Wolfman was smoother and less harsh than other open comb razors I have used. The cutting angle was intuitive, and the handle - while more slender than I would prefer - was not as slippery as I expected. Overall a very easy BBS shave.

Today's departure from the routine was the introduction of one of my homemade shaving soaps.

Saturday AM 2018-08-18

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Beehive Ivory Finest (24/50)
Floris Verbena shaving soap (tallow)
Wolfman WR1-SB/WRH1
Wilkinson Light Brigade (1)
Ralph Lauren Polo aftershave next or Mennen Skin Bracer

The Wolfman, like its open comb sibling, gave me an effortless BBS shave. The hefty handle makes it heavier than I like: with a blade loaded, it is 118g total (the handle alone being 90g). I think I'll like it better paired with one of my titanium handles.
