Tuesday AM 2018-10-02

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 3/3 Ebony Finest (26/66)
Woods of Windsor shaving soap (tallow)
Paradigm II Titanium/Weber Bulldog
Wilkinson Light Brigade (1)
Woods of Windsor aftershave (vintage)
Floris Rose Geranium EdT (vintage)

The brush is a prototypical high-loft Finest, almost too soft for the hard soap. The soap has not held its fragrance well, but it makes great lather otherwise. And the Paradigm has excellent auditory feedback but seems to drag slightly once in a while.

Wednesday AM 2018-10-03

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney WWII Broad Arrow Black Boar (20/46)
Martin de Candre shaving soap
Delta Echo Feather AS-D2/UFO Little Titan
Wilkinson Light Brigade (2)
Yardley English Lavender aftershave (vintage)

The small brush is not an ideal size for me, but it certainly does an adequate job whipping up lather, and I really like its history. The soap is one of those love-it-or-hate-it ones, and I love it, especially paired with a good lavender aftershave.

Thursday AM 2018-10-04

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Polo 1 Ivory Finest (24/54)
Figaro P.160 shaving soap (tallow)
Weber ARC/Wave
Wilkinson Light Brigade (3)
Penhaligon's Racquets Formula aftershave (vintage)

I like the old Figaro's lather better with a drop or two of almond fragrance oil added. The Weber razor is great with the vintage blade, with very slightly more friction than the DLC and just a tad more auditory feedback. And the Racquets Formula is an underappreciated great one.

Today was one of those shaves where I just wasn't focused enough. Yesterday's shave was perfect, but today I must have been distracted or something because I nicked myself more than once. I wasn't in a hurry, just not paying attention I suppose.
