Thursday SOTN
  • razor - Gillette Long-Comb New
  • blade - Astra SS (26)
  • soap - TOBS Eton College
  • brush - Simpson Special 1
  • post - warm water rinse, "Pure & Natural" Alum stick, cold water rinse
  • AS - Mennen Skin Bracer
  • music - miscellaneous obscure Indie tunes from the '90s and Noughties
I thought for sure the TOBS Eton College would be finished this time, but there's at least one more shave left in it. There was actually more stuck to the lid than in the bottom of the tub.

Yikes. Three nicks yesterday and a couple more today. I had only a few of these blades and don't know where I got them, but they're thrown out now. It amazes me that a company that made some of the best blades ever, the P74s, could also make some that are terrible for me.
