Monday, December 26th

Razor: iKon H20
Blade: Gillette Dark Blue
Brush: Semogue LE Boar
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: D.R. Harris Arlington
A/S: D.R. Harris Marlborough

A fantastic shave! It had been a little while since I last used my H20 and I forgot just how good it is. I enjoyed a very efficient BBS shave followed by a refreshing splash of D.R. Harris Marlborough, a favorite.

5/8 Bismarck Razor Works will be the Razor of the week for me. This morning it was Dr. Dittmar's shaving soap and Stephan's Island Lime. Great shave.

Tuesday, December 27th

Razor: iKon H20
Blade: Gillette Dark Blue
Brush: Thater Porter
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Kool Monsoon (compliments of Crackstar)
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

Yesterday's shave with the iKon H20 was so nice that I reached for it again. This time, I decided to try a cream that I recently received from Jeff called Kool Monsoon. It is a great performing cream and I enjoyed an excellent shave. The Alt Innsbruck provided just the kind of wake-me-up that I needed today.

Tuesday AM

VanDerWilliams
handcrafted badger brush
40s Gold Tech
BIC Astor blade (1)
Bay Rum

3+ passes and still a DFS. Very comfortable, but one of the goals of shaving is to get a close shave, this blade didn't do it for me in this razor.
