    Welcome to a new week. The IOTW is "Open Hearts, Open Combs", and for me, that means breaking out my handful of open combed razors, starting with what may be the gold standard, the Gillette New.


    Semogue 610

    New/ Super Iridium
    Captain's Choice Lime AS
    Penhaligon's Sartorial

    Need to get some Bay Rum. My favorites are Master's and Pinaud, but all the store has are Tiger and Stephan's.

    This was my 2nd shave using the Plisson Pure/Grey Badger brush. I used it with Stirling Barbershop today. Great lather! Great scent! I am still with my Red Tip and the 7 O’Clock Black. I got another great Red Tip shave. I finished up with Clubman.

  9. Monday

    Prep: Hot Shower
    Cream: Figaró
    Brush: Vie-Long horse hair
    Razor: '59 Giillette Fatboy (7)
    Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (3)
    AS: Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    ASB: Dove
    Cuba Orange

    1st: N-S, 2nd: S-N, 3rd: ATG where needed. Result: DFS

    Back to the first edge of the GSB, today it was a little smoother, but not as smooth as the second edge was yesterday. The
    Figaró shaving cream performs quite well, and is a good deal at the price. I used Cuba Orange for the second time, and I think it's good, but not great.
