Full on Stirling Executive Man morning. I attacked a three day stubble with a little hesitation since this is the 8th shave with this blade but to my delight it sliced right through. Nice smooth three pass shave with no nicks, weepers, or irritation. Afterwards I hit my face with my alum block and there was no out of the ordinary bite. I continue to be impressed by this blade.

Still in.

I managed to finally dial in the sweet spot for the Chubby 3 (phew).
It took me 10+ attempts, a lot of soaps, wrist and heartache and finally I got it right.
I managed to repeat the almost same results two times this week and both times it was with Mitchell's soap.

Talk about having expensive taste, but the lather it gives and the efforts it took were worth it.

I got an opportunity to learn more about the brush, soap combination and technique has also improved (hopefully).
