Tonight was "Mini Monday"
  • razor - Gillette Tavel Tech
  • blade - Astra SS (13)
  • soap - Fendrihan's "European"
  • brush - Simpsons Wee Scot
  • post - warm water rinse, "Pure & Natural" Alum stick, cold water rinse
  • AS - Reuzel
  • music - Gem Radio New Wave
.
Tavel Tch, Wee Scot, and sample jar of Fendrihan's "European" shaving soap

Believe it or not, this was my fourth shave from that 5 g sample jar, and there's enough left for at least one more. I did always use the Wee Scot, which helps to stretch it out.
That travel Tech masses all of 27 g without a blade. The head is 20 g, and the aluminum handle is 7 g. It's somewhat lighter than even I prefer (i.e. between 45 and 65 g).
I've decided that I'm not that crazy about the Fendrihan "Euro" croap. It was not very slick this time, causing the razor head to sort of stick and slip during a stroke. About like un-modified Proraso White or Green, I suppose.
