Arko August 13th
13th day, 13th Arko shave

Torrey 232
Arko stick
Omega 636

No pictures because I'm mad at the Torrey. Not nearly as smooth a shave as I was expecting. And my neck is still burning three hours later. Must be the razor's fault, right?

I've been stupid-busy of late, so today was another quick 1-pass SAS. Arko lathered up in about 30 seconds and helped me get out the door. Happy camper!

SOTD:
  • RazoRock Mission
  • Nacet (5)
  • Arko in a (used) tub
  • Stirling 2-band synthetic
  • WH w/menthol, LT, Stirling ASB
  • Vintage Avon Moonwind Cologne
 
Had my second great Arko shave today! Already starting to really like that lemony soap scent, reminds me of vacation hotel soap and also a little reminiscent of my Grandma's lemon Joy dish soap, so those are both very nice memory associations for me.

Another great Arko shave today. Could easily use just Arko forever, I think.
When I work through all the artisan soaps I have in the next few years, I will only use Arko and Williams. I just don’t see a need for anything else.

Wade and Butcher "Hollow Ground"
Maggard's Black and White synthetic
Arko stick (of course)

14 of 14 so far. But I gotta admit, I'm now hearing the other soaps in the drawer calling my name...
 
Again a good shave today with Arko, followed by Pitralon Polar AS.
I think I will use this AS more often, as it also cooled a little bit, which I liked.

Got a good quick shave this morning
 
I thought I was going to be Arko so-so but 10 days in and I've used it every shave.
Although with the triple digits temps I have taken to adding a squirt of Pacific Rush into the lathered brush. Slick and cooling!
