The month started the same as the last one ended. I thought that I’d switch back to DE during the week for speed but after a while the dreaded neck irritation started creeping back in. So it’s back to the relative safety of my SR’s. The only system I’ve been able to master enough to use daily on an indefinite basis. You would think an open blade would be more aggressive. For me it’s been the opposite. I think it’s probably easier to judge the angle when you can see what your doing.
+1!

Your post has made me think, and realize how many of my choices and preferences are driven by wanting to see what I'm doing.

Straight razor shaving. I tried DE but it did not speak to me.
A microscope and other magnification so I can see what's going on with the edge when I hone or sharpen
Gas cooktop so I can see the flame and judge the heat I'm putting into the pan
Can't get excited about sous vide or baking, but love stir frying, deep frying, grilling, etc.

Still in. The first June GRUME shave is still ahead of me.

Still in. I haven’t shaved in a few days due to some traveling and a hectic schedule. It was nice to mow down some whiskers.
Razor: FOCS
Blade: PIR
Brush: Sagrada Familia
Bowl: Timeless
Soap: Haslinger Aloe Vera
This brush is an absolute workhorse! I thoroughly enjoy using it!
Have a great day y’all! 0B04F482-A406-4A7C-9E81-6A3493EA3F28.jpeg
 
Alright. This is my first GRUYERE. No purchases since the 31st. Two brushes coming in. Wish me luck!

Ti blackbird and Voskhod, I've really been getting along with the milder blades recently. Plenty of blade feel to help keep pressure under control but still very forgiving. Good start to the month. I'm expecting a package from dirty bird this month, so that may make the medicine go down a bit easier.
