I'm usually a night shaver so tonight's shave will be the first shave of Arko August- Whole Hog even though it'll be an hour or so prior to midnight. Here's the lineup:
Meijer's Noxzema knock off for preshave
70s Super Speed
Shark Stainless (1) *I'm doing Shark Week too*
Simpson Duke 3 synthetic
Arko
Aqua Velva.

Arko August! Whole Hog! Live Action!

Superb! We’re right behind you!
 
Razor: RazoRock Gamechanger 0.84 Ikon handle.
Blade: Astra Super Stainless (3).
Soap: Arko Stick.
Brush: Omega 10065 blue boar.
Aftershave splash: RazoRock Aftershaving Splash.
Real Shaving Co. Post shave moisturizing smoothing balm.

Arko August shave Number 1 in the books. As expected an easy, slick lather face lathered from the stick. Astra Stainless makes for a fine shave in the RR Gamechanger 0.84 and the old Omega boar feels good on the face.

Surprisingly the Arko stick is well lover five years old and has lost most of it's scent. I realize that some don't care for the scent of Arko shave soap, but I always enjoyed it. Like Tabac, I associate it with making a fine lather

Looking back at my shave records, I haven't used since May 18, 2018. I was really surprised, as it was a regular part of my rotation for many years. Yet I know that since 2008 I have bought 2-12 box packs and only have a few sticks left., so I must have used more Arko than I remember.

Cream Arko
Brush Yaqi 26mm Rainbow
Razor Edwin Jagger DE89L
Blade Elios Inoxidable 1st
Aftershave Special Thayers Mix + Hyaluronic + Reuzel Wood & Spice
Arko is really good stuff! Thick creamy and slick! Nice mild scent too.
Shave with razor paired with new blade was terrific! Can feel sharpness yet it was very smooth and comfortable. 3+1 multiple passes with no issues at all. Very close shave result...bbs to dfs.
Good aftershave...cooling and soothing...rating today 9.5/10
Signature par-3 hole across the bay...
