Wasn't in the mood to shave yesterday. This morning's shave was worth the wait. A 2 day growth seems to bring out the best in the General.

Mickey Lee Soapworks soap
SilkSmoke synthetic brush
Colonial General razor
Feather Pro blade
Pinaud Clubman aftershave

I believe I read somewhere that due to a job related relocation the Mickey Lee folks are ceasing production of their shave soaps. It's too bad because they make a very fine soap. Hopefully, after they get settled, they will again produce their fine soaps.
Best regards,

Oh no! I'll have to stock up on their Jefferson Square (lavender) soap; it's high in my rotation but the tub is almost gone. :(

OTD 9/15/19

Decent 3 pass shave this morning! One knick on the dome, using a Kai in the AS-D2. I really love Kapo shave cream. I hadn’t used it in awhile, and forgot how thick, creamy, and cushioning the lather is. Did not get the kind of close shave I’m used to with my usual Feather blade. Have heard Kai blades may be a bit rough the first time or two. Flipped the blade and palm-stropped it. I think I may have been applying some pressure due to my frustration with the closeness of the shave, thus the knick. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.

RAZOR: AS-D2
BLADE: Kai
PRE-SHAVE: Grooming Dept Unscented w/ coolant
BRUSH: Shave Nation Synthetic rec’d as a gift with a razor trade
CREAM: Kapo
POST-SHAVE: Pre Provence Balm followed by Stirling’s Obsidian Glacial AS Splash
